You can’t make this stuff up. On the health law’s pseudo-deadline day, following a huge push for people to visit the website, went down. Politico summed it up: was down for six hours early Monday morning. Then it was up. Then it activated its “virtual waiting room.” Then it blocked newcomers trying to create accounts. Then it was working again…

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says Obamacare is having problems getting off the ground because “people are not educated on how to use the Internet.” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says Obamacare is a “political winner,” while “Saturday Night Live” lampoons the administration’s attempts to connect with young Americans through any celebrity and social network available.

This is really happening.

As we’ve noted, even if had worked perfectly from Day 1, it wouldn’t solve any of the problems Obamacare creates for people. Obamacare has been reducing options for health coverage, killing jobs, trampling on religious liberty, and dumping millions of Americans into an already broken Medicaid program.

That’s why we don’t need better government websites, snazzier celebrity endorsements, or “fixes” for Obamacare. We need real health reform that will put patients at the center and give people control over their own health care. We need more coverage options that provide better value for our hard-earned money. And we don’t need leaders who take us for fools.
