Obamacare website fails when GOP Congressman attempts to sign up

Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp says he faced a lot of problems when he tried  to sign up for an Obamacare exchange early Tuesday morning.

According to Huelskamp’s office, the Kansas Republican attempted to sign up at midnight on Tuesday, the day the exchanges open.

“We have been warned time and time again that ObamaCare is not ready for prime time. Well, it turns out that is right,” Huelskamp said in a statement.

“When I tried to sign up for the exchanges, I was met with error messages, unfinished security forms, and misspelled notices at every click,” he continued. “Seeing how poorly this has been implemented, I am surprised that Harry Reid and Senate Democrats are willing to shut down the government over a law that simply is unworkable, unaffordable, and increasingly unpopular.”

The congressman also tweeted about his experience on the exchange.
