WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Barack Obama kicked off Tuesday a campaign to promote the Affordable Care Act as the deadline for enrolling draws closer.

The president said that his administration is making progress fixing the glitches that plagued healthcare.gov.

He said that a self-imposed November 30 deadline for fixes was met successfully.

Now, he wants to shift the focus to the broader benefits of the Affordable Care Act.

"If I've got to fight another three years to make sure this law works, then that's what I'll do," he said. "Now that the website's working for the vast majority of people, we need to make sure that folks refocus on what's at stake here, which is the capacity for you or your families to be able to have the security of decent health insurance."

The deadline to receive coverage by the first of the year is December 23.
