Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius met with local Obamacare "navigators," people tasked with helping consumers learn about their health care options, as they counseled South Florida residents who were attempting to enroll in the health marketplace at North Shore Medical Center, according to the Miami Herald.

When Sebelius approached one table, she found an uncooperative website.

"The screen says 'I'm sorry, the system is temporarily down," a reporter chimed in over Sebelius' shoulder.

"Well that's ok, it'll come back," said a navigator. "You know, that happens every day."

The Obama administration has stuck to its assertion that website will be "working smoothly for the vast majority of users" by the end of November, and it has noted significant progress already made to that end.
