Here's the current graphic being displayed at healthcare.gov, guaranteed to produce aneurysms in every member of the congressional tea party caucus. Obamacare is now live. Huzzah!

And here's an interesting tidbit. I was watching TV earlier this evening, and one of our local news channels was promoting themselves as "your exclusive source" for information about Covered California (our version of Obamacare). They had a hotline number, and promised that certified insurance counselors would be available on Tuesday to answer questions. That was sort of interesting. I wonder if this is the kind of thing that news stations around the country will be doing?
