In other words, it went exactly as planned.
Via Media Trackers:
An Obamacare Florida navigator called Monday’s planned insurance exchange rollout “dead as a doornail” after widespread problems prevented Floridians from accessing the Obamacare insurance exchanges.
Despite federal officials having three years after passage of the Affordable Care Act to plan for the launching of healthcare insurance exchanges, the federal website crashed on its first day of operation, preventing Floridians from accessing the health insurance exchange system.
“It’s dead as a doornail. It’s not working,” John Foley, a paid Obamacare navigator, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Foley is an attorney with the government-funded Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County.
Foley’s assessment was particularly troubling for Obamacare supporters given Foley’s role in implementing Obamacare and the Legal Aid Society’s ongoing cooperation with the Obama administration.
“It’s a mess. It’s terribly disappointing,” Foley added. “They [federal officials] have been pushing it for so long, and people have been excited to see it, but apparently it’s not coming.”
