The Obama administration says a new technical problem is preventing last-minute users from signing up on the government's health insurance Web site.

Health and Human Services spokesman Aaron Albright says technicians have identified an issue affecting consumers who are trying to create new accounts.

As a result, new users will not be able to access the system for the time-being. Technicians are working to fix the problem.

People with existing accounts can continue to work on their applications.

Albright said more than 100,000 people are using the system at the same time.

Is it "consumer interest is surging" or the threat of being fined for non compliance that is causing the the so-called last minute surge? I'm always suspicious of mainsteam media reports.

OBAMACARE is one of the biggest infringements of freedom that has ever been imposed on the American people. EVERYONE should be resentful of the Obama Regime.

If you like government-mandated heath care

such as the VA; you'll love government mandated and controlled health insurance.

Thanks, allhans

The only thing you can trust this government to do is to lie, deceive, manipulate, cover up and look out for each other, even across the aisle.

the blind leading the blind.

the blind leading the blind. nothing like worrying about the infrastructure until after we build the city, hmm? now we are also hearing the health care industry is in desperate need of skilled workers. duh! no one thought of this back when the all the big talk about providing health care for everyone was going on? yes, you may get your insurance for 46 cents a month, but good luck finding anyone to take care of you.

Its all Bushes fault ------- NOT!

THE LIB'S, SOCIALISTS & dare I say it?
YES the DEMOCRAT PARTY ALLIANCE completely OWN this MESS.

The Republicans & RINO's and TEA PARTY have voted this mess down, what 60+ times in the US House and Socialist Democrat Harry Reid refused to allow a VOTE on it in the Senate.

Even President Obama has said he would VETO any fixes to ObamaCare, that ever make it to his desk.

REMEMBER
If the Socialists really wanted a working healthcare solution, they had 5+ years to get it ready.

THEY, & THEY ALONE, OWN THIS MESS.

Don't sign up or bother-cause

Don't sign up or bother-cause the most they can do is take any tax refund. Besides with all the unilateral changes (not approved by Congress) you could bring up legal challenges and probably win. .

Wow just like the Obama

Wow just like the Obama administration knew the video linked with Benghazi occurred before the attack-they were notified and then sent out Rice with a blatant lie-course she didn't know that she was just the messenger.
