Like many Americans, my experience was pretty frustrating. After putting in my personal information, I received an error message. I was able to work past that, but when I went to actually sign up for coverage, I got this “internal server error” screen:
Despite multiple attempts, I was unable to get past that point and sign up for a health plan. We’ve got a call into the help desk. Guess I’ll just have to keep trying…
Naturally, liberal Huffpo reporter Sam Stein seemed upset. Not by the failure of the DC website, but by Speaker Boehner’s tweet:
Will Speaker Boehner post an item when he successfully signs up for healthcare?

Meanwhile, Washington DC Mayor Vincent Gray says he couldn’t be happier:
And DC Health Link going swimmingly, Gray says. "We've had really not a glitch … We couldn't be more pleased."
