Obama: "I Wanted To Go In And Fix It Myself, But I Don't Write Code"


PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, we've had this problem with the website. I'm not happy about that, but we're working overtime to make sure that it gets fixed because right now we've put in place a system, a marketplace where people can get affordable health care plans. I promise you, nobody has been more frustrated. I wanted to go in and fix it myself, but I don't write code.

But every American with a pre-existing condition who's been waiting for the day they could be covered just like everybody else. For folks who couldn't afford to buy their own insurance because they don't get it on the job. We're going to fix the website because the insurance plans are there. They are good, and millions of Americans are already finding that they'll gain better coverage for less cost, and it's the right thing to do.
