Obamacare ‘Glitch’ on Deadline Day
Amy Payne /
If you rushed to HealthCare.gov this morning, you might have found the site unavailable or been placed in a queue, reports said.
“An administration spokesman told the AP the website is usually offline for maintenance overnight, and was brought down for four extra hours by a technical glitch,” NBC reported.
This probably didn’t take many people by surprise. Obamacare’s technical glitches are well known. But the big problem with Obamacare is that the law’s flaws are more than a glitch. Share our parody video below as the Obama administration frantically urges people to “Get Covered” today.
UPDATE: Just after 12:30 p.m., the administration said that users signing into the website for the first time can’t access enrollment and application tools because of “record” traffic. There are “more than 100,000 people concurrently in the system as of noon,” a spokesman told Politico.
