President Barack Obama spoke to the nation Monday from the White House, addressing glitches with the Affordable Care Act's registration process since its rollout more than two weeks ago.

Obama acknowledged concerns from many Americans about the issues involved in registering for health insurance via the Affordable Care Act's website. The president said his team is doing "everything we can possibly do to get the websites functioning faster," and said there's no excuse for the problems users have experienced.

"Everybody who wants insurance through the marketplace will get insurance. Period," the president said.

The president expressed frustration with the enrollment process, empathizing with Americans attempting to enroll, saying "no one is madder than me" that the site isn't functioning as it should, "which means it's going to get fixed."
