President Obama apologises for botched healthcare website

US President Barack Obama has been forced to publicly apologise for his health secretary, after the botched rollout of the website for his new health care laws.

The website is where Americans are expected to register for private health insurance, but has been plagued by shutdowns and other delays since it opened on October 1.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius has taken responsibility for what she has labelled a “debacle”.

But President Obama says they are working overtime to ensure the website is operating as it should.

He says until then, people can still apply for insurance over the phone, or in person.
