One of the biggest supporters of the Affordable Care Act, Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, is admitting the health insurance website still has a lot of problems. She said her office will be working to help constituents navigate the worst of them. Sinema also wants the individual mandate delayed.

“Try and identify the problems, help push for a solution, and in the meantime, I still believe that Americans should have extra time to enroll before a fine is implemented,” Sinema said.

She said there continues to be problems with people who have completed an application for insurance and then found it lost or who are unable to access services later.  

In the wee small hours of the morning, when most of us are working on REM sleep, Morning Edition host and reporter, Dennis Lambert busily prepares the news and information KJZZ listeners hear as they prepare for the day. He did that for KJZZ listeners from 1996 to 2016. Dennis retired in 2016.
