HHS Tweets ‘Website Worked Easily’ Ad as Healthcare.Gov Crashes for Hours

“I wanted affordable health care. The website worked easily. It probably took 15 minutes."

On the final (official) day of Obamacare open enrollment, Healthcare.gov was out of commission for almost eight hours in part due to what administration spokesman Aaron Albright called a “software bug.” The "bug" required the site to be shut down an additional four hours beyond a scheduled four-hour maintenance period, making the site inoperable for almost eight hours, from 1 to 9 a.m.

Despite the site being offline eight hours to kick of the final, crucial day, Health and Human Services tweeted out an ad in the morning with a quote from “Shelley, a single mom,” stating, “I wanted affordable health care. The website worked easily. It probably took 15 minutes.”

 

 

A recent AP poll found that 59% of those who had someone in their household attempt to enroll in Obamacare experienced problems. The poll also found that only 26% of Americans now have a positive impression of the law, a new low.
