Obama: No 'sugar-coating' problems with health website

Washington (CNN) - An unscripted moment Monday summed up President Barack Obama's effort to downplay problems plaguing the government website used to sign up for required health insurance under his signature health care reforms.

As Obama argued that the law was good and the website's problems would be fixed, one of the people chosen to stand behind him in the White House Rose Garden started to teeter.

    Yep, and reports are coming out about how Faux actually hires people to create hundreds of sockpuppet accounts EACH for commenting on Faux's website and around the web in order to spew talking points and counterattack any criticism of Faux, their reporting or the propaganda narrative s they are trying to sell. They even went so far as to give them old computers and do other things attempting to make it harder to trace that they were doing it. They're nothing but sociopaths.

    Not that I ever put it past them, but one person having over 200 trolling handles is a bit much ... even for FOX.

    Republicans can't stand that ObamaCARE is working and will continue to work, improving the lives of people who couldn't afford healthcare. How can people who have healthcare keep people from obtaining healthcare. Republicans, particularly the tea party Taliban should be ashamed of themselves.

    are you crazy? nothing is working yet. all of the easy freebies were front loaded to sugar coat this manure pill called obamacare. all of the costs, pain and suffering, and destuction were delayed.

    How can people who have healthcare keep people from obtaining healthcare.

    nobody has ever kept anybody from obtaining healthcare so enough of the lies. health care is available at all hospitals for those that go there. it was always expected that people pay for the services they purchase. now the demorcats want to give those services for free and have others pay for them.

    Republicans, particularly the tea party Taliban should be ashamed of themselves.

    people that expect and demand that others pay for their health insurance are the ones that should be ashamed. they are free loaders.

    26 billion dollars and IT'S STILL THE LAW. In fact, the two of you sound real "questionable" referring to the president as someone incapable of leadership. Please let us all know of your legislative achievements. So far, the only thing you've done is worship a party who sent the American taxpayers a huge bill for non-services provided. Please continue to entertain us though.
