It’s October 1, the day when unicorns frolic across the land because the “Affordable” Care Act is finally here. Finally.
One Twitter user in California successfully navigated that state’s Obamacare website and was able to get an actual quote. Alas, the plans weren’t quite as affordable as promised.
No hope. And no change to spare:
Several other Twitter users had similar reactions:
"@DefendWallSt: $996 a month for insurance? Seems affordable.". I would be looking at 2500 a month

I just checked out the cost of health insurance on the Florida Obamacare exchange. Looks like I'm going to have to cook some meth.

On the (questionably) bright side, the above tweets show that a few people were able to actually access Obamacare’s glitch-ridden health insurance exchange websites.
