“Thanks for your patience. Try again later.”
It’s now day four of the Obamacare health exchanges being “open for business”, and complaints from Americans still unable to login to the healthcare.gov website are pouring in.
Visitors are still being routed to error notices either declaring that “the system is down”, there are “a lot of visitors”, or “maintenance” is being carried out.

As we have documented, despite the endless glitches preventing people from signing up, the giant health insurance companies that helped write Obamacare have seen their stock prices soar.
Meanwhile, average Americans with small businesses are being hit hard by the enforced law.
Although the White House has claimed premiums will be “lower than expected” under Obamacare, a Manhattan Institute analysis found that “Obamacare will increase underlying insurance rates for younger men by an average of 97 to 99 percent, and for younger women by an average of 55 to 62 percent.”
Studies by the Congressional Budget Office found that some Americans will face premium increases of 203% under Obamacare. The new law will increase health care spending by over $7000 for a typical family of four.
