Woman Who Obama Cited as Obamacare Success Story Now Says She Can’t Afford Health Coverage

That’s why we ought to remain skeptical about the White House’s push to improve the enrollment experience for the “vast majority of users.” It’s not just the user end that’s broken. And even if the website works well enough to allow most people who want to enroll to get through the process, there’s no guarantee that it will continue to work once they’re inside the system.
