"We have received numerous reports from Hoosiers who have been unable to enroll due to website malfunctions as well as complaints from Hoosiers who can no longer afford the new premium amounts," they wrote. "As we work to assist these constituents, it is important that we are able to provide them accurate data regarding the health insurance exchange."

The letter specifically asks for the number of applicants so far in the state of Indiana, and the number of applicants per congressional district.

Sebelius will testify next week before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a hearing that will explore the botched rollout of ObamaCare.
