Yesterday our intrepid Twitchy team documented how the Connecticut Obamacare health exchange website had received 11,000 visits, but only enrolled 22 people in the first three hours. While we gently chided the program’s lack of popularity, we have egg on our collective face now, since the number of applications has zoomed to nearly two hundred! Well, not nearly, really. Closer to 170. But we’re willing to round it up to spare President Obama’s feelings.
Maybe more would sign up if they could actually load the website?

If you couldn't reach @AccessHealthCT earlier it's up now. Can view plans, see if you're eligible for fin. aid & see participating docs.
