As questions continue to swirl around the HealthCare.gov Obamacare web site, and political pressure mounts on the Obama Administration over the bungled health care rollout, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius, who is in the hot seat over Obamacare, will attend a forum in San Antonio today, 1200 WOAI news reports.
Mayor Castro, who will accompany the embattled secretary, says it is a good move, because there are some 300,000 people in the city along who are uninsured.
"We want them to have health insurance, so they don't have to use the emergency room as their primary care physician," Castro said.
Castro will be joined by County Judge Nelson Wolff, who is also a huge supporter of Obamacare, in a talk at a south side medical clinic which the White House says is part of a tour of the ten cities in America with the largest number of uninsured residents. Sibelius will also travel to Austin as part of her trip.
"It is important that local governments do everything we can to make sure that people have the information and resources they need," Castro said.
Sibelius is certain to get peppered with questions about the disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov, and allegations that the government dropped the ball on unveiling the President's signature domestic policy priority to the public.
