(CNN) - What has quickly turned into a rollout fiasco, the website at the forefront of the Affordable Care Act has the Obama administration doing damage control.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has faced calls to step down.
The technical debacle surrounding Healthcare.gov has applicants and the White House talking a lot about frustration.
"If we had had an ideal situation and could have built the product in a five-year period of time, we probably would have taken five years, but we didn't have five years," Sebelius said to CNN.
Sebelius said contractors have been asked to bring in their "A-teams" to fix the issues with the website.
Sebelius was asked why the "A-teams" weren't on the job in the first place, and only now three weeks into the launch, those folks are just now being brought in.
"We have hoped that they had their 'A' team on the table, but I am talking to CEOs and urging them to make sure that we have the talent that they have available."
Top Republicans, including Congressman Paul Ryan, R-WI, have called on Sebelius to resign.
"…(T)his website paid for by the Republican National Committee, invites people to sign a petition and calling on the president to fire her," Ryan said.
Sebelius was evasive when asked if she discusses resigning.
"What I talked about is doing the job that I came here to do. This is the most important work I've ever done in my life," she said.
Sebelius and President Barack Obama have both stressed the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, saying the problems related to volume, which is a sign people want to enroll.
