|And the Light-bringer gave unto California ObamaCare and 5 million sung his praises... oh.... well 645,000 people looked over the website. They were... stoked.|
Is there any standard related to the professional American Left that isn't in tatters? Is there anything that is considered beneath them?
From The L.A. Times (via Drudge):
California's health insurance exchange vastly overstated the number of online hits it received Tuesday during the rollout of Obamacare.
State officials said the Covered California website got 645,000 hits during the first day of enrollment, far fewer than the 5 million it reported Tuesday.
The state exchange had cited the 5 million figure as a sign of strong consumer interest and a major reason people had so much difficulty using its $313-million online enrollment system.
Dana Howard, a spokesman for Covered California, said the error was the result of internal miscommunication.
"Someone misspoke and thought it was indeed 5 million hits. That was incorrect," he said.
Well, at least they had a valid excuse. Also it was probably a few rogue people in Cincinnati...
Howard said the revised Web traffic still represents a huge response. He said the number of unique online visitors Tuesday was 514,000 and the state received 19,000 calls.
Meantime, Californians were still running into computer problems and long hold times during the second day of enrollment under the federal healthcare law.
Those glitches have prompted Covered California to shut down its online enrollment system twice.
Yup, people are lining up for ObamaCare. They all can't wait until it kicks in fully in 2014... conveniently after the elections.
