FILE - In this Nov. 14, 2013 file photo, President Barack Obama pauses while speaking about his signature health care law, in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington. It survived the Supreme Court, a presidential election and numerous repeal votes in Congress, but now President Barack Obama's health care law risks coming unglued because of his own mistakes explaining it and his administration's bungled implementation. Obama now needs breakthroughs on three separate fronts: the cancellations mess, technology troubles, and a crisis in confidence among his own supporters. It’s daunting, but working in his favor is evidence of pent-up demand for the program’s benefits and an unlikely collaborator _ the insurance industry (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
