What a Stunning Surprise… Obamacare Website Fails on Final Signup Day

Well, it figures.
The Obamacare website went down for several hours on the final day to signup for the government-run program.
NBC reported:

People trying to apply and enroll for private health insurance through Obamacare before Monday’s midnight deadline discovered the website was “currently unavailable.”

Healthcare.gov, the online marketplace bedeviled by bugs since its launch last fall, went down for several hours Monday morning, a statement from the Department of Health and Human Services said. The “tech team is working now to bring the system online as soon as possible,” HHS said in a statement.

The site later appeared to be operating, but it was putting customers in a “queue”, meaning they’d be notified by email when they could proceed with enrollment.
