WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration says it will meet its self-imposed deadline of fixing the troubled health care website so that 50,000 people can log in at the same time starting Saturday. Yet questions remain about the stability of the site, the volume of traffic it can handle and the quality of the data it is delivering to insurers.

Round-the-clock repair work since HealthCare.gov went live on Oct. 1 has produced fewer errors, and pages are loading faster.

But the revised site still won't be able to do everything the administration originally had envisioned. And companion websites for small businesses and Spanish speakers have been delayed.

Still, the White House hopes a more smoothly functioning website after weeks of bad publicity will mark a fresh start for Obama.
