CNN goes 0-for-100 trying to find successful Obamacare enrollee

CNN asked 100 people in South Carolina to tell how easy it was to enroll in Obamacare exchanges. And from all 100 sources, CNN received the same reply: We couldn't do it.
Not one of Dr. Sanjay Gupta's 100 interview sources was able to enroll online because the websites kept crashing, The Blaze reported.
Dr. Gupta, moreover, found that in the entire state of Kentucky, only 2,900 were able to access the online exchanges and successfully enroll.
The news comes on the tail of President Obama's announcement this week that America can expect enrollment "glitches" to last for months. Obamacare supporters, meanwhile, are spinning the glitches as evidence of the health reform's popularity among the people that the online crashes and system malfunctions are actually due to unexpected demand.
But many around the nation aren't buying that logic.
"It was worse today than it was yesterday," said Denise Rathman of Des Moines, Iowa, after trying for the second day in a row unsuccessfully to enroll online, The Blaze reported.
In California, fewer than 1 percent of visitors to the state-run health care exchange site actually signed up for the program. And in Minnesota, a pastor and father of two young children said he had tried at least 10 times to enroll at the state's online exchange, but could not.

I spent time on the WA state website. 6 attempts at just getting a rate, completely unsuccessful. Even worse than crashing, when rates were displayed they were for parameters completely different than what I had entered. I entered data for a family of 5 with two 45 year old adults and three children. The website displayed 3 different errant results for a 20 year old male, a 53 year old male, and a 55 and 59 year old couple.
Okay now we will try the landline # 1-800-318-2596 listed above or 1-800-318-2596 = 1-800-FAU-CKYO.
They can’t even handle the procedures for getting people to sign up for it?
Barely out of the gate & Obamacare has already screwed the pooch.
And another well intentioned, touchy feely, hopey changey, ice cream pooping unicorn program implemented by the democrats gone to crap.
Kentucky was celebrating their healthcare sign up today on C-Span: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/DKY
COST/YEAR FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR (4) WITH AN TOTAL YEARLY INCOME OF $45,000 IN ILLINOIS:

$45,000 ) $8,904 = 19,8% of Yearly Gross Income
- WELCOME TO OBAMA’S “FAIR” REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH & REPARATIONS
” Obamacare has already screwed the pooch.”
I think you mean he eats the pooch =)
For all we know, freelance hackers and technomancers may be crashing these sites on purpose. Just wondering.
Indeed a lot of free information for them and a lot of money.
Sorta like their viewership, o for country outside of DC
Yes, because of all the websites ever launched, hackers would suddenly decide to hack this one.
I haven't thought of that...you are probably right. Good catch!
LOL I tried perhaps 10 times on Tue and Wed with no success.
Haven’t done it yet today.
Wait until illegals and terrorists enroll and hack the thing.
Being acceptable rape product is success for demoncraps. Just look at heir gay pride marketing blitz.
The thing is probably hacked from within. Democrats just want to potemkin the thing md not deliver to keep their job protection paid.
Barely out of the gate - about three years after the bill was signed into law (if I recall correctly). This isn’t rocket surgery, there’s no reason that the systems couldn’t have been ready to go on October 1st. (other than it being a government project, of course)
