President Barack Obama is trying to reassure members of his own party about his health care plan as problems with the Obamacare website drag on.
The president heard complaints Wednesday from 16 Senate Democrats up for re-election next year.
The Democratic lawmakers are worried that the botched rollout of Obamacare could hurt their chances of winning.
Meanwhile on Capitol Hill, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius faced more tough questions from Republicans and Democrats.
Sebelius pledged to fix the website HealthCare.gov by Nov. 30 but warned that the first enrollment numbers will be low.
"I'm hoping that with the site improvement, we'll see more robust numbers," she said.
Meanwhile Tony Trenkle, the HHS official who managed the government office that created HealthCare.gov, is stepping down.
