The Obamacare Website Might Finally Be Getting Better

My timing, as always, is perfect. Last night I wrote a post wondering just how bad the problems with the Obamacare website really are. Today, Sarah Kliff reports that things are finally getting better. The site remains slow, but she was able to complete an application that included financial assistance in about 30 minutes. Her application is now "in progress," so she hasn't begun the actual process of choosing a plan, but this is still better than it was before. Kliff also reports that shopping for plans is fairly smooth and easy.

So....maybe the problems are more resolvable than we thought, and are in fact finally getting resolved. Stay tuned.
