Bachi has not been able to enroll via the healthcare.gov federal website, although not for lack of trying. She attempted to sign up half a dozen times, was eventually able to create an account, but was later blocked from accessing the account.

Barrack said if you like your plan you can keep your plan! He also said if your having trouble getting on the web sire you can call Healthcare.gov to get signed up!

This story is fear-mongering by the press, pure and simple. If you need coverage right away, you don't need the website, just call up a few of the major health insurance companies and ask them what options they have for your situation. Compare your available options between one or more companies. The Insurance companies are more than happy to help. It's the same process we all used to use to shop for everything else, or has everyone forgotten how people shopped before there were websites?

When terminally ill Americans start dropping in the streets, the Dems are going to have big problem on their hands. And it will start happening, soon.

Chad Henderson signed up on the first day. It's a success. Stories of evil insurance companies killing people, such as those of Stanley Ann Dunham, Otto Raddatz, John Broadniak and Tiffany Owens will never be heard again...mostly because they accomplished what they needed. All concocted lies to "sell" Obamacare.

Who needs a denial of service attack to slow things down when you have Obama's competant team on the job?

honeyboo: "When terminally ill Americans start dropping in the streets..." Suddenly you are concerned about the uninsured when you have been railing against the ACA for three years? An American dies every 20 minutes for lack of health care insurance. And you seem to want that to continue. The Democrats are not the ones with the problem here.
