We will be up and running -- every state in the country.
October 1 new online marketplaces.
Where beginning on October 1 of this year.
You can comparison shop.
On a range of private health insurance plans side by side.
The computer systems have not been tested very well and probably won't be going in October 1 but I don't think an award for.
I've heard -- enough stories and anecdotes from people in the industry working with the states you know.
That a lot of this process and enough falling away from an actual online easy user.
Friendly experience to people filling -- -- performance.
And when they do that you're gonna -- in the states.
There is no doubt that in implementing before -- the program of the significance.
Are going to be some glitches no doubt about.
That's true by the way a car company rolling out a new car it's true apple rolling out the new iPad.
The -- said as I say health care act up is up and running making the press is pretty easy wheel drive information to folks.
We still continue to believe that any individual mandate.
Being delayed is in the best -- your interest -- American people.
Obama -- is open for business while much of the federal government is not this.
Is special report.

Not take my -- -- go on the website doctor dugout check it out for yourself.
Important here -- couldn't be created at this time.
The system is unavailable so I tried again now it's telling me that my account could not be created at this time the username already.
Exists there going to be some glitches in the sign a process.
Along the way that we won't fix we found out that there have been times this morning where the site's been running more slowly than it normally well.
The reason is because more than one million people visit health -- dot -- but for 7 in the morning after a third unsuccessful attempt to create an account I entered the live chat please tell me that I need to return an off peak hours he says.
Somewhere between 11 PM and midnight.
Well we have a few problems today why.
Because -- New York alone during the first few hours two and half million people wanna -- So the biggest challenge we have today around America's biggest challenge we have in their own American.
Is keeping her web sites out because of the volume.
There's doesn't show that this doesn't -- the hunger in America you have -- center for health care I don't know what does.
Health -- dot gov has a phone number as well DO OC why.
But that operator told me it's against their policy to create accounts over the phone so I just needed to keep trying.
But you can show -- a legitimate criticism though that an individual doesn't get to delay it.
But a business does well -- legitimate.
I don't because nothing that helps an individual get health insurance has been delayed at all.
They can -- get the tax credit this year they have plans to choose from in the amazing thing bush in general did you have a minute to give the subsidies ready for the businesses.
Again very very in the market already.
Let me ask this in my Michigan this man.
I don't think -- In the government shut down debt ceiling increase showdown Republicans put on the table delaying obamacare -- individual mandate for one year.
And including lawmakers administration officials and their staffs in obamacare without subsidies.
Something that was flatly rejected by Democrat.
The only thing they want to deal with his Obama care.
I'll be paying.
About 550 dollars a month more.
Everything in the plane and the new bronze plan is is going to be exactly the same as my old plan or inferior.
My out of pocket is is greater my deductibles doubled from 2004000.
And really the only thing that.
Is is offered in the new plan that would be considered a benefit.
Is that it it comes wins maternity and newborn care.
Well -- in my case my wife is 58 years old and our youngest child is soon to be eighteen.
It's certainly a number of frustrating attempts before I could apply for it and and some like my plan.
I was able to find a policy I am thrilled when saving a 150 dollars a month.
The web site has been too slow.
People have been getting stuck during the application process.
And I think it's fair to say that nobody is more frustrated by that that I.
Because precisely because the product is good.
We've got people working overtime.
447 to boost capacity and address the problems.
Experts from some of America's top private sector tech companies who by the way of seeing things like this happen before they want -- to work.
They push too much and -- such a little period of time they were finding all kinds of problems the reports are now coming out there were circulating long before the launch of health care -- That there was incredible concern very deep concern about whether the technology was functioning when it was passing the tests.
But the pressure coming back from the politicians was make it work.
Make it work make it work in other words we're not listening to this you guys fix it if you actually it's not fixed -- people still in the.
Or three weeks into this.
And that's number one number two as written the law makes clear that people who do not have access to affordable care.
Due to a state not expanding Medicaid or other factors will not be panel.
-- -- -- can be its web -- again having that -- written the president said.
But certainly you can compare purchase or well for one -- when -- -- -- -- -- Let's.
That's what the president look the president's frustrated he made that clear in his remarks today and we're focused on.
Making improvements and there's no question again -- the website that was launched on October 1 has not.
I don't I'm not familiar with the testing that was done I was afraid HHS for that.
