Obama: 'We Fumbled Health Care' Law Rollout

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says his administration "fumbled the rollout" of his signature health care law.

Obama is taking responsibility for problems with the launch of the program. He says, quote, "That's on me."

Obama says it's legitimate for Americans to expect him to have to win back some credibility on the health care law and in general.

The president acknowledges his assertion that Americans who like their health plan could keep it, in his words, "ended up not being accurate." He says that wasn't his intention.

Obama says he wasn't informed directly that the Healthcare.gov website wouldn't be working, and wouldn't have rolled it out if he did. He says he wouldn't have been "stupid enough" to say it was going to be like shopping on Amazon had he known.
