Rough Obamacare rollout: 4 reasons why

Washington (CNN) - It seems like a long time since Vice President Joe Biden whispered a bit too loudly to President Barack Obama that his imminent signing of the 2010 Affordable Care Act was "a big f-ing deal."

Forget about Obamacare. In Colorado, it's 'Brosurance'

(CNN) – Keg stands. That's one way to promote Obamacare, it seems.

Polls: Early reviews for HealthCare.gov aren't pretty

Washington (CNN) - Only a minority of Americans are giving a thumbs up to the rollout of the Obamacare health care exchanges, according to a trio of new national polls.

Just 12% of people questioned in a CBS News poll released Tuesday say they think the process is going well, with nearly half saying it's not going well and nearly four in 10 saying they can't evaluate the signup process at HealthCare.gov.

I got through after a week of trying, and found signing up for Obamacare to be a fairly straightforward process. (I get insurance through Time Warner, so I didn't actually have to seal the deal).
