Healthcare.gov “very easy to use,” says woman who spent three days trying to enroll

Font Size:

Witness the modern miracle that is Obamacare. On the third day, it rises again!

Yes, get covered. In bull$#!+. Even if you didn’t know the site is a complete trainwreck, this lady’s awkward line readings and body language would reek of utter fraudulence.

But hey, let’s give her a chance to back up her claims. Sterling Beard, NRO:

While Lielasus did say earlier this month that she was impressed by the site’s ease of use, her road to coverage was, like that of so many others, a rocky one. An October 2 report indicates that when she accessed the site, she got ”only as far as creating an account before the federal Web site stopped working.” In a brief conversation with National Review Online, Lielasus said it actually took her three days to enroll and that she completed her enrollment on October 3.

Only three days? Why, that’s as speedy as a quick car trip from New York to LA. Nothing to it.

Then again, maybe she has a point. What’s easier to use than something you can’t use? You just sit there and look at it. Easy enough!
