With HealthCare.gov showing signs of improvement (mostly), President Obama got back into what Politico calls "sales mode" today about ObamaCare. He began what is expected to be a three-week push designed to get people to focus on the law's benefits instead of its website glitches. "If I've got to fight another three years to make sure this law works, that's what we'll do," Obama declared today, reports NBC News. "We're not repealing it as long as I'm president."
The president said the website is "working well for the vast majority of users," thus fulfilling the administration's promise of a month ago. "Do not let the initial problems with the website discourage you, because it's working better now, and it's just going to keep on working better over time." Mitch McConnell launched a pre-speech critique, asserting that the "campaign-style event won't solve the myriad problems facing consumers under ObamaCare," reports the Hill. (Even if the website is working better, ObamaCare is still a disaster for pro-government progressives, argues one columnist.)
