Obama renews healthcare bill promotion

3 December 2013 Last updated at 23:23 GMT

US President Barack Obama has launched a fresh effort to promote his embattled healthcare overhaul law, as problems with its central website persist.

He said it was time to "refocus" on improving the American healthcare system following a wave of negative publicity for the law.

Mark Mardell reports from Washington.
