President Obama defends Obamacare on Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco visit

During a three-day Western swing through Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, Obama bragged on Obamacare, the accomplishments it has and will bring and promised the “glitches” will go away.

President Obama obamacare economy speech California“Yes, we decided to fix a broken healthcare system,” Obama told DreamWorks Animation employees on Tuesday, the final day of his trip.

“I was talking to some of the studio execs here and I said, ‘You know the rollout of the healthcare marketplace was rough’ … and yet here in California and here across this state, there are thousands of people who are getting healthcare for the first time – for the first time – because of this.”

The administration has promised the website will be working for the vast majority of Americans by the end of this month, and White House officials continue to express confidence that goal will be achieved.

“The website is continually working better, so check it out,” Obama said instigating laughter from the crowd.

“We’re going to continue to implement the healthcare law. The product is good, people want it and we should not live in a country where people are going bankrupt just because they get sick,” he said.

“And anybody who is going to keep on pushing against that, they will meet my resistance because I am willing to fix any problems that there are, but I am not going to abandon people to make sure that they have got health insurance in this country.”
