Obamacare applications near half million; website called 'unacceptable'

Washington (CNN) – Nearly 500,000 people have filled out applications for Obamacare coverage despite the highly publicized problems with online sign-ups, administration officials told CNN Saturday.

"The website is unacceptable, and we are improving it," one senior administration official said. "But the underlying insurance product is good, and across the country people are getting access to affordable care on January 1."

    Half million is remarkable for only 20 days in use. The website issues need resolved by our OWN people.

    Great! Only 39,500,000 to go. At this rate everyone should be signed up by 2020.

    Rick – How can you be so wrong every day? Unlike the dying GOP, the WH actually cares about people.

    This number is not credible when you read in other reports that the system show people have registered two and three times and the system is relaying information to the insurance company's showing the same person has signed up for 2, 3 and sometimes 4 policies.

    This number is also as bogus and the claim that 13 million people have gone to the web site. If you have to try and get on the site 10 times a day and are not successful and you keep doing it 10 times a day for several days – you are still only one person.
