(CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden expressed confidence Monday that the administration is going to fix the embattled federal healthcare website.
"The truth is, we're going to fix it," Biden said at Ellington Field airport in Houston, speaking to volunteers working to help people enroll in health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
"God willing," he added later.
Biden's comments come as President Barack Obama and administration officials have promised significant improvements to the federal healthcare website. Following the October 1 launch of the online exchange, technical issues have barred many enrollees from signing up for insurance through healthcare.gov.
On Tuesday, a top administration tech official will testify before a House panel that the health website will be "greatly improved for the vast majority of users by November 30" – the date the administration has repeatedly indicated will mark substantial improvements to the functionality of the website.
Earlier Monday, Biden addressed workers at a port in Houston as a part of a two-day trip aimed at promoting federal investment in infrastructure.
