Still, things are starting to get ugly.
Repeated requests by HHS for more money from Congress to implement the law have been denied. Ranking Republicans are now calling the agency's inspector general to investigate whether Health Kathleen Sebelius violated appropriations and ethics rules when she reportedly tried to raise funds for Enroll America, an organization that is working to help put the Affordable Care Act in place. Those actions are now also under investigation by two congressional committees.
The agency maintains she made "no fundraising requests to entities regulated by HHS."
Public has questions
Caught in the middle is the American public. A Kaiser Family Foundation poll in April showed 49% of those surveyed didn't know how Obamacare would affect them and roughly 40 percent were unaware that the law was being carried out.
"In our research looking at barriers faced by families accessing available public insurance for their kids we found that families were often very confused about the requirements and the processes for enrollment," said Jennifer Devoe, a family physician, and professor at Oregon Health and Science University of such programs as Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program. "We also found confusion among families who believed their child to be covered when the child was actually uninsured, and vice versa."
A majority of Americans said they opposed the nation's new health care measure, three years after it became law, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday.
But looking deeper, the poll also indicated that more than a quarter of those who oppose the law said they didn't support it because it didn't go far enough.
