It was 3 a.m. before Chad Henderson made it through the online gauntlet of website crashes, error windows and hours of frozen screens. But at last, a Web page flickered and Henderson was facing his prize: The online application to apply for health insurance for his father and himself for the first time in 14 years.
Later that day on Oct. 1, the 21-year-old from Flintstone, Ga., fired off a Tweet: "Enrolled in #Obamacare just now! Looking forward to having affordable health care for the first time!" and attached several local news outlets onto the message.
He had heard reports that no one had been able to sign up for the new Affordable Care Act insurance plans, which went live that day.
Within hours, his phone blew up. Presidential advisers had retweeted his message, and reporters wanted his phone number. Enroll America, a national nonprofit organization promoting the law's new insurance options, asked to publicize his story.
On Thursday, Henderson juggled interviews with the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Politico and other national and local news outlets.

Did the Chattanooga Times print an update ? Have you sent them something correcting it?
I don't think he understands what a deductible is, and he only makes $10,000 a year. His deductible is half his yearly wages - $5,000 a year.
He was better off on Medicaid. Now he can't afford to go to a doctor at all! (that is if he can even find one who'll take him.)
Wow. This guy totally screwed himself if this story is true.
He’s OFA (Obama for America).
And his identity was promptly stolen by internet hackers (or exchange navigators - take your pick) and used to buy two VERY expensive cars, a big screen TV, and $2000.00 with of beauty products.
Wasn’t this kid outed as a fraud the other day?
they are late and still haven’t heard?
Signing up is just the beginning... just wait until you have to go online to file a claim!
The fool/tool was a fraud. He didn’t “sign-up”. He fits the LIB asshat mold: liar & absence of integrity. On one level I hope he does eventually sign up so that he get the mental health treatment he so desperately and obviously needs.
It's a broken piece of software.
Will cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery be allowed under Obamacare???
That’s what happens when Obama hires a French Canadian company that outsources its coding to India to create the enrollment website.
So Dale turned to Roy Rogers and said, “Hey Roy! Is that the cat that chewed your new shoes?”
Nyuk nyuk nyuk
“Will cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery be allowed under Obamacare????
Only if it’s in conjunction with a sex change operation (addadictomy or wackitoffomy procedure).
What’s more disgusting than this lying piece of democrat operative is the media’s frenzy to get to him. The media are desperate to bolster 0bamacare and wanted to get this story out to the public.
Doesn’t matter if it’s all a fraud.
He allegedly is paying $2,100 a year in premiums, makes less that $10,000 per year, he’s young and healthy and the dims call this success??
....and neither is Palomino therapy....../snicker
We could only hope. The Obamacare signup might just prove to be a super expensive honey trap for all the brain-dead Obamazombies who sign up. May all their worldly goods be stolen from them by ACORN and other operatives. It might take that kind of catastrophic slap in their dumb faces to wake them up. And even then, I’ll bet it won’t.
