Scalise Experiences Obamacare Failures During Sign-on Attempts

Statement

After attempting to sign up for Obamacare for over two hours, Congressman Steve Scalise released the following video and statement:

"I've heard numerous stories from constituents about the failed attempts to sign up for Obamacare, so I tried to sign up myself," Scalise said. "After spending two hours trying to navigate through the error-ridden Obamacare website, I was kicked out of the system four times, got numerous blank screens, and never once was able to compare prices for health coverage."

"This failed website is a symptom of the larger failure of President Obama's government takeover of our health care system. This is not a "glitch,' it's a national embarrassment. The Obama Administration spent more than $500 million of taxpayer money building the failed web site that is clearly not ready to allow families to purchase health plans. How can President Obama force American families to purchase health care from a website that does not work at a price they can't afford? President Obama has delayed this law for corporations and insurance companies; it is time that he finally delays the law's penalties for American families as well."
