Ohio senators split on reaction to health overhaul

Brown, Portman at odds on how to move forward with healthcare.gov debacle

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio's U.S. senators disagree on how to respond to problems with the federal website for President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
Democrat Sherrod Brown of Cleveland says steadfast opponents of the law want to use the website woes as an excuse to try again to block it. Republican Rob Portman of the Cincinnati area says the Healthcare.gov malfunctions are an indicator of what's ahead if rollout of the complex health care law continues.
Neither lawmaker wants the ouster of U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, daughter of late Ohio Gov. John Gilligan. Portman says that wouldn't solve the problem. Brown says the focus should be on fixing the issues.
