Well, the nation’s healthcare website, healthcare.gov, is up and going, after a fashion. It took me several tries, but I was finally able to create a profile. Once I did…I couldn’t log in. Ah, well. It’s a brand-new website getting hit by millions of people. Problems are to be expected.
Meantime, the government shutdown is a thing. Do check out these two great articles by Andrew Sullivan discussing it (here and here). Hopefully it’ll all be back to normal soon, but in the meantime, the GOP is not going to win this one.
