It's a mandate, you have no choice. So you couldn't sign up day one, today you can. Websites are working swimmingly.
Why am I not surprised that you are championing mediocrity?
We get it, Ed. The website is now working. Kudos to Obama and his team on $600,000,000 + well spent.
Spoke too soon. This is from yesterday --
Sebelius visit fails to reassure as health care website glitches persist
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had a front-row view of the problems plaguing the website that the government established to allow people to shop for health insurance under Obamacare....
...“Believe me, we had some early glitches,” said Sebelius, who was introduced by Rooney, a backer of the law. “But it's getting better every day.”
At the back of the room, it was a different story. About 20 people armed with laptops and certified by the government to sign up people for coverage were meeting with uninsured people, answering questions and fruitlessly trying to access the website.
LaKesha Lowry, 41, came to the event to find out about her health insurance options. But the North Side resident said she was not able to access the site, even with the help of a certified application counselor.....
......Ted Couperus, a Gibsonia resident who spoke to the Tribune-Review on Monday about his trouble with the website, was still experiencing problems on Thursday.
“I have tried logging in over a dozen times since Tuesday at all hours day and night with no success,” he wrote in an email. “I have continued trying to log into my account at Healthcare.gov, always with the same result. The system seems to accept my user name and password, but gives me a blank white screen.” (link)
At this stage of the game, the administration is measuring success by the number of hits. Perhaps I can show the IRS my browser history and avoid the fine?
