WASHINGTON D.C. (WKZO) -- With most of the glitches in the healthcare exchanges now fixed, more and more people are signing up for health insurance under Obamacare.

Its still far short of the number they had hoped to have signed up by this time, due to the website's rocky start. 

HHS director Kathleen Sebelius Told Fred Upton’s Commerce Committee yesterday that she is initiating an investigation to determine what went wrong with the launch of the system, and hiring someone to oversee such projects in the future so it never happens again.

Upton says it’s too little too late,

A December 23rd deadline for people who want to have healthcare in place by January first is coming up, but they really have until the end of March to sign up for coverage.
