Obama to Public: Don’t Give Up on Health Sign-Ups

ObamaWASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is encouraging consumers not to give up enrolling for insurance under the new health care law.

He says sign-up problems have been caused by a website overwhelmed by high traffic. The president says officials are working “around the clock” to reduce waiting times.

Obama predicts that interest in the new virtual marketplaces for insurance will exceed expectations. He says consumers will take their time to educate themselves before actually purchasing coverage.

Obama spoke during an interview with The Associated Press.

The enrollment period for insurance coverage began Tuesday and has been marked by technological glitches. The administration was taking down the enrollment website for repairs over the weekend.
