Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg chief Washington correspondent Peter Cook reports on the mounting problems for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as another glitch to the Healthcare.gov website appeared over the weekend. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “In The Loop.”

That's right, it's the wrong kind of national recognition for anyone in government.

Secretary kathleen sibelius did not want to make it onto " saturday night live" in that way.

It highlights the public relations fiasco she is facing.

On top of that, on sunday, she got more problems for the website itself.

The data hub had been working efficiently but it went down because of larger network problem's with a verizon subsidiary.

If complicated things and made it harder for people to enroll on sunday.

It only as to the pressure kathleen sebelius guess because she testifies wednesday.

She is on the hot seat and that was evident from this weekend's talk shows.

You talk about secretary sibelius - as of last night, she is the laughingstock of america says she she has lost considerable credibility.

I think she should stay and i think she will get the job done and attention he -- and i think she needs to bring people around her and she will do that.

The the administration is sticking with secretary sibelius.

She is under pressure and that testimony on wednesday is important in front of the house panel.

Given these problems, what are the prospects for this delay in the individual mandate?

That will be the ultimate question for the administration.

There are 10 democratic senators pushing for a delay, allowing people more time to enroll because of these problems.

As that number grows to more pressure will build on the administration to give some wiggle room.

It is hard to imagine they will not allow americans more time with these problems continue.
