The Funny Yet Depressing Way One GOP Rep. Highlighted the Continued Obamacare Enrollee Struggles


"This is not a ‘glitch,’ it’s a national embarrassment."

How long did it take Congressman Steve Scalise to try to enroll in Obamacare?

Long enough to order and eat lunch.

"Why don't we take a look at how this website works and try to log in ourselves," Scalise (R-La.) says in a video his office posted to YouTube Friday.

Scalise said what followed was a two-hour attempt to sign up on that was marred by technical troubles and ultimately ended in failure.

During his try, Scalise even had enough time to order and then eat a pizza.

“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 in a statement. “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," he said.
