CNN: ObamaCare Website Crashes During Signup Process
The Obama administration promised the healthcare.gov website would be fixed by today (or at least 80%). Unfortunately there are still bugs and glitches within the new site rollout.
CNN reporters wanted to test the new website for themselves. The website crashed during them signing up for Obamacare.
But the White House is telling reporters, everything is just fine (for the majority of users)
(Reuters) – Two months after the disastrous launch of a key component of President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, administration officials on Sunday said they had achieved their goal of getting HealthCare.gov operating smoothly but warned the website will need more fixes.
Obama’s specially appointed adviser Jeffrey Zients said a five-week emergency “tech surge” had doubled the capacity of the online health insurance portal while making it more responsive and less prone to errors.
“The bottom line: HealthCare.gov on December 1 is night and day from where it was on October 1,” Zients told reporters a day after the administration’s self-imposed November 30 deadline for making the website operate properly for the vast majority of users.
