Trying to turn around public opinion on his health care law and his leadership, a defiant President Obama today said the Affordable Care Act is now working.

The President said he's learned not to make wild promises about Obamacare adding that he checks every day that the website and the plan as a whole are working.

The comment comes as the White House kicks off a new effort to sell the plan to the American people.

"Despite all the problems in the rollout about half a million people across the country are poised to gain health care coverage thru marketplaces and Medicaid, beginning on January 1st, some for the very first time," the President said.

"If I've gotta fight another 3 years to make sure this law works then that's what I'll do," Mr Obama told a group gathered at the White House.
