APOLOGY: Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner told Congress that the severe technical problems that marred the online rollout of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul were not acceptable.

ACCESS UNKNOWN: Tavenner said she could not answer until next month how many Americans had been able to enroll under the new program. The administration has promised that it will be running efficiently by the end of November.

SPIN GAME: The administration's bungled rollout of a system that promises to provide coverage for millions of uninsured Americans has given an opening to embattled Republicans ahead of next year's congressional elections.
