Obamacare malfunction shuts down application tool

New York (CNNMoney) - A malfunction in key technology behind the Obamacare website left users unable to apply for health coverage late Sunday, a federal official said.

A health and human services spokeswoman confirmed the problem and said a vendor networking issue was to blame. Joanne Peters said Verizon subsidiary Terremark "experienced a failure in a networking component" and the attempted fix crashed the system.

    I suspect that they know about many of the problems and will be working to clean that up.
