By Jonathan Easley
President Obama said Friday hes confident that the troubled healthcare rollout wont be the final word on how his signature legislative achievement is remembered.
"I continue to believe and [I'm] absolutely convinced that at the end of the day, people are going to look back at the work we've done to make sure that in this country, you don't go bankrupt when you get sick, that families have that security," the president said in an interview on ABCs 20/20. "That is going to be a legacy I am extraordinarily proud of."
The HealthCare.Gov website went live on Oct. 1, but has been plagued by a myriad of technical issues.
The administration has scrambled to assemble a tech surge with the goal of having the website functioning at 80 percent of its total capacity on Nov. 30, but the avalanche of bad news has provoked Congressional hearings and dragged Obamas approval rating to new lows.
So far, nobody in the administration has lost their job over the bungled rollout, as the White House has instead focused its energy on fixing the site, rather than accounting for the missteps that led to the present situation.
But the president on Friday said he was looking into how the project could have been so severely mishandled.
"Obviously my most recent concern has been that my website's not working ... and we're evaluating why it is exactly that I didn't know soon enough that [it] wasn't going to work the way it needed to," Obama said. "But my priority now has been to just make sure that it works."
Many lawmakers have called on Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, to resign. The secretary has so far weathered the demands.
"Death To America", but Obama.

Sometimes I’m proud after taking an exceptionally large dump too.
Good, makes it easier to keep it stapled to his forehead
Something you would expect from a loser
It’s all the boy has to show for his entire worthless life. He’s never done anything else worthwhile. I can see why he wants to force it down our throats.
-— my website’s not working -—
What a self-centered putz.
Is that why its still called Obamacare?
Perhaps King Fubo should look into the way the contract for the software work was handed to one of his wife's cronies on a no-bid contract.
Keep digging, 0doofus. The hole you’re in can never be deep enough for me.
What a clueless fool Obama is. He’s a legend in his own mind.
Obama, the anti-Christian...
You forgot the “barf alert”!
Can't be. It's gonna get worse.
If you have cancer, you can keep your cancer.
Under my plan.
0KillerCare is going to bankrupt the US.
