That’s Department of Labor Deputy Secretary Seth Harris, assuring us this morning that Obamacare’s health insurance exchange website is working just fine.
But don’t pick on Seth. He’s just parroting the White House:

HHS told a (Fort Myers, FL) News-Press reporter that any problems with the websites are solely the fault of high traffic, not design flaws:
HHS: All glitches on http://t.co/eUXMq87fkO are attributable to "high volume," not design flaws.

Open for business? No design flaws? Uninsured people are enrolling? Great news! Apparently all those glitches that Twitchy noticed yesterday have been resolved.
Then again, maybe not…

@HealthCareGov Even if I can add password, can't get past security questions. Do you have tech people on this?

A sign of progress, on the Obamacare website, you still can't buy insurance, but you can get your identity stolen.
