Online adventures with Obamacare: Reps admit ‘known’ security bug, but ‘please be patient,’ guys

Well, that ought to inspire confidence.

As Twitchy reported, on day one of the Obamacare rollout, state insurance exchange websites are a big ol’ snafu and HealthCare.gov’s security failures have citizens’ heads meeting their desks.

Thanks for the ready-made Obamacare metaphor, HealthCare.gov!

NRO contributor Greg Pollowitz tried to get some answers from a HealthCare.gov live-chat rep about the FUBAR-ific security bug. After wasting more than 30 minutes of his day, he was told that the broken website is a “known issue.”

Pollowitz isn’t the only one who got the “known issue” line and apparently the best ETA on a fix is “soon.” Or maybe “later.” Surprise!

But no worries. The federal government totally respects your time.
