ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) After nearly three weeks since the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare was rolled out, there have been technical glitches with the program's website. On Monday, President Obama acknowledged those problems while speaking from the Rose Garden. He said while demand for the product has been high, the website has not worked the way it was supposed to and no one is more frustrated than he is. Obama says people are working around the clock to fix the problems. Experts from America's top private sector tech companies have joined the team to work out the glitches. In the meantime, the President is urging people to sign up for the Affordable Care Act by phone or in person. More information can be found on the website at www.healthcare.gov.
