Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown says fixing problems with the state's health care exchange is an "evolving process."
Brown was given the lead role in implementing the federal Affordable Care Act in Maryland, and the exchange website is the key piece of that law. Sign-ups on the site, which went online Oct. 1. are far below what the state wanted to see and well short of enrollments seen in other states that run their own exchanges.
Brown says the website in its current state "is not serving the people of Maryland," but says technical problems with the exchange are being fixed each day.
Brown is running for governor, and his opponents have pounced on the site's problems, saying the lieutenant governor has botched the biggest job he was given as the state's number two.
