WASHINGTON — Barack Obama’s vaunted but highly unpopular health care law, ObamaCare, has hit a wall, technically speaking.
Reuters reported that ObamaCare’s online enrollment, which is essential to enrolling Americans on health care exchanges in each state, has glitched and led to substantial confusion and delays.
The state-run health care exchanges launched earlier today even with the partial government shutdown in effect today, and it was disastrous. In at least 36 states that opened their online enrollment, 24 of them reported widespread errors on enrollment.
The reason behind it? Not the GOP, but online traffic.
The Department of Health and Human Services offered an apology and released a statement that read, “Consumers who need help can also contact the call center, use the live chat function or go to localhelp.healthcare.gov to find an in-person assistor in their community,” among other things.
Just as the Republicans warned, ObamaCare is going to face implementation and enrollment issues because it is such a large-scale law.
