Obamacare wait times cut by one-third, HHS says

The Hill, October 4, 2013
The Health and Human Services Department said Thursday that it has made progress toward fixing the long waits and technical problems that have hampered ObamaCare's new insurance exchanges. HHS has added capacity to the healthcare.gov website since unveiling it Tuesday, when overwhelming demand locked consumers out of the site. HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters said 7 million people have visited healthcare.gov in the past two days. The department still has not said how many of those visitors have actually signed up for health insurance.
