    Many companies have blocked incoming data and are contacting customers directly to confirm they want the insurance, and in some cases, which insurance, as many came through the system as having bought multiple plans. The House is beginning an investigation into the contractor responsible for the website. From the same story on FoxNews.com ...

    Additionally, numbers are finally starting to flow in as to actual usage of the ACA website since it opened on October 1.

    • In the first week, 9.4 million people visited the site
    • Of those, only 25% managed to complete the registration process
    • Of those, a total of 36,000 people nationwide actually signed up to buy ACA insurance programs
    • By the second week, the site's visitor load dropped 88%, to 1.1 million
    • Four (4) Iowa residents signed up
    • One (1) Delaware resident signed up
    • A whopping 26 South Dakotans signed up
    And the Great Pretender said: "The number of glitches in the system is more than I think is acceptable." Gee, ya think?

    Perhaps this elephant dung of a program will collapse under it's own incompetency, but it still needs to be repealed.
