Will a "Tech Surge" Save Obamacare?

Hosted by  • 

President Obama conceded today that HealthCare.gov, the Obamacare website, is not working the way it’s supposed to. He promised the “best and the brightest” tech gurus will fix it and insisted that applicants who do get through are thrilled with the product.

Republicans want some accountability. Can the President reassure enough people soon enough to avoid a disaster?

In the Rose Garden with a group of apparently satisfied Obamacare customers, the President said the Affordable Health Act is working just fine—but he conceded major problems with the website, HealthCare.gov. The President did not hold anyone accountable for the problems, but he promised they’re going to be fixed.
