Looks like Obamacare is super popular in Connecticut.
Not even two dozen signups in the first three hours and Access Health CT is tooting its horn? Up next: participation trophy?
So what has so many shoppers refusing to take the Obamacare plunge? Is it the great rates?
Got on CT exchange.Cheapest plan for 27-yr old earning $30K was $130/mth after subsidy, 67% higher than cheapest plan prior to Obamacare

Or the shoddy website?
But wait … less than an hour later and the number of enrollments is up by a whopping two.
