WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama on Monday said there was "no excuse" for the cascade of computer problems that have marred the rollout of key elements in his health care law, but declared he was confident the administration would be able to fix the issues.
"There's no sugarcoating it," Obama said. "Nobody is more frustrated than I am."
The president said his administration was doing "everything we can possibly do" to get the federally run websites up and running. And he guaranteed that everyone who wants to get insurance through the new health care exchanges will be able to.
Obama's event in the White House Rose Garden had the feeling of a health care pep rally, with guests in the Rose Garden applauding as Obama ticked through what the White House sees as benefits of the law. The president was introduced by a woman who had successfully managed to sign up for health insurance through the marketplaces in her home state of Delaware.
The president insisted that his health care law is about more than just a website.
"The essence of the law, the health insurance that's available to people, is working just fine," he said.

No, there is no one in the Media to promote it.
The SOLUTION to government incompetence is always more government. SOCIALIZED MEDICINE IS THE ENDGAME. The media is already promoting it—on behalf of the DNC.
the republicans are the most inept bunch of fools on earth ...more likely they want to keep the ACA so they can tinker with it if they ever get back in charge....
but anyway, why they don’t have 500 people on the capitol steps, RIGHT NOW, with cancellation letters and premium increase notices in hand coming one after another to the microphone ...saying how this law has destroyed their insurance that they liked, made them switch doctors and costs more...it’s just the height of political idiocy that they can organize this and pull it off in an hour, you can’t wait a few days or few weeks ...you have to pile on the pressure before this thing grows....but, they are idiots and don’t know how to use political theatre ..so, they’ll whine about mean old Ted Cruz and work on passing amnesty ..
Where exactly does this (or any other presidential) buck stop?
can’t get a site working but want to make us think health care will work, LOL
The Buck Stops There.
"Everything" the government can do is obviously not enough.
You'll soon die of 0bamaCare.
When do we break out the tar and feathers?
IOW, it's somebody else' fault.
His M.O. - its just the "way he rolls" - its always someone else's fault.
The buck never reaches him. He never "owns anything".
He's not really a POTUS - he is President of the United Socialist Bureaucracy. POTUSB.
will you be publishing a book soon with these fab photos?
Heck, when do the citizens promised insurance sue because their current insurance has been cancelled, they can’t sign up for 0bamaCare, and can’t afford a procedure?
I think the Feds are liable for having promised something, not delivered it, and folks being impoverished or dead as a result.
There’s a class action suit if ever there was one....
Naaa. The old "Sham Wow!" guy is the model.
King Barry is buddy buddy with Mark Zuckerberg of FACEBOOK, yet HHS can't make an 0bamacare website work? Something very fishy about this.. This is embarrassing for supposedly high tech America. NOT!
Obamacare website is THE MONEY PIT, designed to fail to bring about Single Payer!
I should be posting them as a collection on a blog Soon!
“Nobody is more frustrated than I am.”
I can assure them that I am lots more frustrated.
You didn’t see the memo?
The EPA has banned the use of tar and feathers.
It’s much too painful for both the plucked and the plucked recipients... And too messy. Silly string and Nerf balls are hanging onto an OK by a thread.:-)
Let me be clear... we are focused like a laser beam on fixing this problem.
