President Obama “will directly address the technical problems” with the ObamaCare website during a Rose Garden event Monday morning, according to a White House official.
The president will discuss work continuing “around the clock” to improve the website, which has been plagued by problems since its launch earlier this month. According to the White House official, the president and his team find those troubles “unacceptable.”
The official said the president will be joined by “consumers, small business owners, and pharmacists,” including individuals who have already enrolled in ObamaCare online.
Many individuals have reported issues creating accounts on the website, which allows uninsured Americans to shop for health insurance. Healthcare providers have also complained that the government has turned over error-riddled data for those Americans who are able to successfully purchase coverage on the exchange.
Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have expressed outrage with persistent problems. The House Energy and Commerce Committee plans to hold a hearing on the website’s issues during the week.
