WASHINGTON (AP) President Obama is expressing sympathy for Americans who are getting kicked off their health insurance plans, but says they were often getting "a very bad deal."

Obama says his health care plan is making the insurance market better for everyone, even though millions of Americans who buy individual plans have been receiving cancellation notices.

Obama told about 200 of his campaign supporters and health care activists Monday that he knows cancellation notices "can be scary for people." But he says virtually every insurer is offering newer, better plans.

He acknowledged that technical problems with the health care website to shop for insurance are making it tougher for people to find other plans. He says he's "not happy about it," but promised, quote, "We're going to smooth this thing out."
