President Obama defended his signature piece of legislation in the Rose Garden yesterday. Thousands, if not millions, have had trouble signing up for healthcare coverage on the website. They have had problems logging on and completing the registration for ObamaCare.

This past weekend, the administration took the application page on the website down so it could be fixed.

Obama says, "Let me remind everybody that the affordable care act is not just a website.  It's much more.  For the vast majority of Americans -- for 85 percent of Americans who already have health insurance through your employer or Medicare or Medicaid, you don't need to sign up for coverage through a web site at all.  You've already got coverage. What the affordable care act does for you is to provide you with new benefits and protections that have been in place for some time. You may not know it, but you're already benefiting from these provisions in the law."

Later this week, the Health and Human Services Secretary will testify before Congress about the botched health insurance rollout.

People who are experiencing difficulties with enrollment should call 1-800-318-2596.
