Health care website stumbles on last day
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration says a new technical problem briefly prevented last-minute users from signing up on the government's health insurance website. The new problem comes as traffic is surging on deadline day.
Health and Human Services spokesman Aaron Albright says technicians identified an issue affecting consumers trying to create new accounts.
As a result, new users couldn't access the system, but the problem was later resolved.
Albright said more than 100,000 people are using the system at the same time.
