House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admits that problems with the Obamacare website, HealthCare.gov, aren’t trivial.

"The fact that the website has beyond glitches . . . is disappointing," she said in a news conference Wednesday. "But it doesn’t take away from the fact that we’re on a path."

Story continues below video.



In some ways, her message matches that of the American people: "Just fix it so we can go forward," The Hill reports. "Fix the technology, and let's not get too bogged down in what happens if they're not able to fix it."

To be sure, many Americans likely want Obamacare officials to work hard on figuring out what will happen if the website isn’t fixed.

But Pelosi seems to think the website can be repaired. "I have faith in technology and, while there are glitches, there are solutions as well," she said. "So I'm optimistic that we'll be able to go forward on schedule."

To some extent, Pelosi sought to minimize the website issues.

"The situation right now is unacceptable, it's unfortunate. But we did not work very hard and . . . dedicate our public service to a website," she said.

"It was to an initiative for affordable, quality healthcare for all Americans. . . . Not for a nano-second would I say that I'm disappointed."
