Just seconds before Kathleen Sebelius addressed the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the Obamacare website went down.
Ironically, it happened minutes before Sebelius said, “The [Obamacare] website never crashed. It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability.”
This is what showed up at HealthCare.gov as she spoke:
In fact, the site was still down 30 minutes after she began speaking.
It was verified that the site was unavailable in at least North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, and New Hampshire.
Additionally, many congressmen who came to question Sebelius were unable to access the site on their own browsers before and during the hearing.
Given the site’s performance in the last few weeks, should we really be surprised?
Social media was abuzz during Sebelius’s hearing:
Citizens around the country (including many Democrats) feel they were lied to when Obama promised Americans that they could keep their current doctors and health plans if they wish to:
Is ObamaCare unravelling before our eyes?
