noted earlier, the Obama Administration’s declaration of
victory over Healthcare.gov’s technical issues may be a little
premature. For the hell of it, this morning I tried signing in to

To be fair, I opened Google Chrome and was able to get in and
set up an account using that browser on the first try. My email
notification of “Marketplace account created” arrived soon after.
Just a thought, but maybe the tech wizzes working on Obamacare’s
woes might need a little more time to slap duct tape on the
website’s boo boos.
