Contractors who built the troubled health care website are testifying.

Cheryl Campbell, senior vice president of CGI Federal, says in her prepared remarks before the House Energy and Commerce Committee that the Obama administration ultimately bears responsibility.

Complaints about the website grow louder in Congress, threatening to tarnish the legacy of President Obama's signature domestic achievement.

Problems with the online health care exchanges, aimed at helping people find insurance, were apparent as open enrollment began under the Affordable Care Act on Oct. 1.

The mandate that people obtain health insurance is a key tenet of the law.

Obama's Democratic allies, including senators up for re-election next year, are joining Republicans in calling for an extension to the open enrollment period and clarification about when penalties will be levied on people who don't obtain insurance as the law requires.
