Sen. Ayotte Seeks Data Showing Enrollment In Health Insurance Exchange

U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte wants to know how many New Hampshire residents have signed up for the new health insurance exchanges.

Ayotte submitted a request for the information on Monday in a letter to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

In the letter, Ayotte says she has received significant negative feedback from Granite State residents about the process for enrolling.

Ayotte is asking for data showing how many people in New Hampshire have tried to sign up, and how many have actually been able to successfully do so.

In a press conference Monday, President Obama said there’s no excuse for the delays on the website and pledged to resolve any issues as soon as possible.
