OBAMA TRIES DAMAGE CONTROL ON HEALTH LAW -You know a Web site is in rough shape when the first fix being touted is to send people to a 1-800 number instead. That’s one of the repairs that administration officials are selling today ahead of a speech by President Obama addressing growing frustrations with the online home of his new health-insurance entitlement program, ObamaCare.

The crash-prone Web site has become a huge embarrassment for Democrats who were hoping the rollout of taxpayer-subsidized insurance would soften resistance to the law. Instead, major problems with the sign-up portal, data reliability for those who make it through and sticker shock at the plans being offered are sapping public confidence in the plan pushed by the supposedly tech-savvy president.
