"I'm glad the administration has been getting in the game on this a little more recently, I think they were slow off the dime," Maloney told the caller. "I'd like to see somebody lose their job over this. I think it's outrageous."

Asked about the remark, Maloney told Roll Call in a statement that "The success of this program and the ability of folks to navigate these exchanges is more important than protecting anyone who failed to do their job."

Though Maloney didn't single out any one individual for blame, Republicans from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) have called for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to resign in the wake of the website's glitchy rollout. 

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
