Amanda Carpenter is a speechwriter and senior communications advisor to Sen. Ted Cruz, which makes her a Senate staffer. Therefore, she’s compelled to sign up for health insurance through the Washington, D.C. health insurance marketplace. (Speaker John Boehner tried signing up last week and declared the effort a “train wreck.”)

Carpenter’s experience hasn’t been much better. Her ordeal began yesterday during those recommended “off-peak hours.”

That was Day 1. On to Day 2, the day when HealthCare.gov was scheduled to be fixed.

Uh oh.

Democrats promised lots of things with Obamacare, didn’t they?
