The president will be touting Obamacare's benefits at a White House event Tuesday.
As far as the performance of the HealthCare.gov site, media report that while officials said on Sunday it would be able to handle 50,000 simultaneous users, problems started at the mid-30,000 range.
So officials deployed “queueing” software designed to limit the number of users on the site at one time.
Meanwhile, insurers say much of the enrollment data they're getting is practically useless, meaning some people may not be able to get access to benefits on Jan. 1, the date their coverage is scheduled to take effect.
In a related development, the Obama administration is offering more money to insurance companies as an incentive for them to let people keep insurance policies that were to have been canceled next year.
And a new wave of legal challenges to Obamacare is playing out in courtrooms as conservative critics, joined by their Republican allies in Congress, make the case that Obama has overstepped his authority in implementing the law.
