Update from Politico: “HealthCare.gov was down for six hours early Monday morning. Then it was up. Then it activated its ‘virtual waiting room.’ Then it blocked newcomers trying to create accounts. Then it was working again…”

Miraculously, they got the 7 million they needed. Hallelujah. 


Today, Monday, is the last day to sign up for ObamaCare but the website is down or as the government says, “It’s currently unavailable.”

Our healthcare is in the hands of bureaucrats who can’t make a website work, even on D-Day.

It’s been a disaster since it began.

It’s been down for several hours Monday and the good old reliable “tech team is working now to bring the system online as soon as possible,” HHS said in a statement.

It’s sort of working a little now. Customers are in a “queue” and will be notified by email when they can proceed with enrollment.  It’s fortunate we’re not on a plane and they’re the pilots.

Mr. Obama wants us to buy insurance we can’t afford, can’t sign up for, and which won’t cover our doctor or our hospital and we will be fined if we don’t.

Isn’t government controlling this one-sixth of our economy just great!?!

Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyoming, when asked about the alleged 6 million enrollees said,  “I don’t think it means anything,” he told “Fox News Sunday.” “They are cooking the books on this.”

He added that enrollees still don’t know if they will keep their doctors or if their plans will be affordable.

McKinsey & Co. released figures. Insurance companies said they need 38% young people but only have 25%.  Only 27% of those who signed up were previously uninsured which is why ObamaCare was undertaken in the first place. Another 23% have not paid.
