Healthcare.gov: One Month Anniversary

Healthcare.gov: One Month Anniversary

It's the one month anniversary of the rollout of Obamacare and no one is celebrating.
NBC News -- It's the one month anniversary of the rollout of Obamacare and no one is celebrating.

A startling number of Americans are having their current policies cancelled and healtcare.gov is still struggling.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said today that she's really sorry but the website's getting better.

One month In and Healthcare.gov does look different and works faster despite another server failure Wednesday.

According to HHS, the time to load a page is down to one second from what was an awful eight seconds

But debacle is how Obamacare is seen 31 days after the disastrous rollout.

Nationwide only six people enrolled on October first and just 248 more the next day.

But critics are looking past healthcare.gov

"The website will be fixed, my view is that's the easiest thing they'll ever do with this law," said republican Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri.

Harder to explain is Americans losing the coverage they have and the doctors they like despite the president insisting they wouldn't.

Today GOP Chairman Reince Prebius said, "Obamacare is classic example of what people are tired of! They're tired of people like the president making promises that they can't keep!

The President claims he meant you'd keep good coverage or get better coverage.

"You know, so many people have had crummy plans that didn't give them hospitalization or didn't give them mental health services or had, you know, lifetime or annual caps. All that goes away on January 1st," said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Gone already is the face on the homepage of healthcare.gov

Healthcare.gov's chief troubleshooter predicted his team will have the site fully fixed by the end of November.
