DALLAS (AP) - President Barack Obama is comparing the problem-plagued federal health care website to a store that has a good product for sale and not enough cash registers to ring up the purchases.

Speaking to volunteers in Dallas, Obama says "nothing drives me more crazy" than knowing that good insurance plans are for sale under the Affordable Care Act, but people are having trouble getting onto the website to buy it.

The administration has promised that the HealthCare.gov website will work well for most Americans by the end of November.

Obama visited Texas on Wednesday to encourage the state to participate in the federal health insurance marketplace that was created under the law.

Texas has the highest rate of uninsured Americans the law was designed to help.
