Anna Eshoo

In this Jan. 3, 2013, file photo, Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., right, participates in a mock swearing-in ceremony with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, for the 113th Congress in Washington. Cloistered in a tense, private Capitol Hill meeting for House Democrats this month, Eshoo had some advice for the aides to President Barack Obama who were trying, with questionable success, to assure the unhappy caucus present that the woeful web site for the president’s signature health care law would soon be working. In fact, they pledged, by Nov. 30, the “vast majority” of Americans who try to buy policies on the “Obamacare” will succeed. Stop setting “red lines” that might be broken, Eshoo told the presidential aides, according to a person present who was not authorized to release the exchange. (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci, File)
