(FREEBEACON) — New advertisements promoting Obamacare by Health and Human Services (HHS) claim Healthcare.gov is “very easy to use” despite a flood of reports about glitches and a dearth of users being able to actually access the site and purchase insurance.

President Barack Obama held a press conference on Monday in defense of his health care law, saying it is “not just a website,” which has been under scrutiny for its disastrous rollout since Oct. 1.

Coverage of the site has been largely negative, with pundits and reporters alike at news outlets from the Washington Post to the New York Times to the Los Angeles Times noting the problems with the website.
