Obamacare Website Goes Down Again on Deadline to Enroll for Coverage
Monday, March 31, 2014 08:24 AM

By: REUTERS

The website for people to enroll in U.s. private health insurance was unavailable early Monday morning, just hours before the deadline for the first wave of enrollment under the healthcare law.

Representatives for the Department of Health and Human Services, in a statement, confirmed the access problems to www.HealthCare.gov and said the website's usual maintenance time had been extended, but that the site was "coming back up."

People have until midnight on Monday to obtain health insurance under President Barack Obama's healthcare law known as Obamacare or else face fines. But the administration has softened the deadline to accommodate those who attempt to apply for coverage by Monday night.

In the statement, representatives for the department said people who visit the insurance exchange website can leave their contact information and enroll online later, or call a hotline to complete their applications.

You just can't make this stuff up.

To understand what is happening to us, you really have to consume some mainstream media. Here is what the average American is being told:

- The site went down for normal maintenance. No big deal, it happens everywhere.
- The last minute rush is huge, so there will be a grace period. That is to say, the nanny state cares.
- It's very important to get coverage, it's inexpensive, and good for you.
- Obamacare is already driving down costs of healthcare.

Given that Americans lack curiousity and the ability to think critically, the above are "facts" to most people.

With the delays, and the political hocus pocus going on with Obamacare implementation, it's entirely likely Obamacare will be a winning issue for Democrats in November.
