Fox News media critic Howard Kurtz writes on the "Obamacare" rollout, which has been severely tripped up by malfunctions in the website that facilitates health insurance coverage for users:
I think we have to stop using the word “glitches” to describe what’s going on. This is far more serious than too many people at the outset crashing the site.
This is a meltdown of the first order that really does threaten the president’s signature priority. If the problems are ironed out and millions sign up for the federal exchanges, this period will just be an unpleasant interlude. But at this point, administration officials don’t seem to have a handle on the magnitude of the debacle.
