Oops: MSNBC Anchor Can’t Access Obamacare Exchange
After failing to log in to the Obamacare Exchange web portal, MSNBC’s Mara Schiavocampo then called the help desk and was put on hold for 35 minutes trying to reach a Navigator.
“If I were signing up for myself, this is where my patience would be exhausted,” Schiavocampo said before she gave up.
OK, so there were a few "glitches" on Day One, but Castro didn't build the utopic Cuban health care system overnight. (just ask any Cuban refugee rubber raft immigrant) In fact, this is good news. Employment figures are sure to improve as Obama ramps up the public sector Navigator jobs. All we need is a swelling bureaucracy to meet the demand.

NAVIGATOR: Hello, this is Al-Shabab, and I'll be your Obamacare Customer Care Navigator Representative today. First, we need to set up you account. In case you lose your password "KENYANMALL", we ask some security questions. Therefore, I am going to ask you a series of questions about Islam that any good Muslim would know. I hope you know the answers or things could go very badly for you.
ObamaBot1: Yo, check dis out. I went in to order seven McDoubles and one McChicken and one fry, but when I got to my truck and I got ready to leave, I looked in my bag and come to find out I only had six McDoubles.

Mei Xiang and Tian Tian's escape was made possible due to the Republican-led government shut down. No funding, no Panda Cams, PROOF that the lack of constant surveillance can be dangerous. How was this considered non essential?! Thanks Tea Party!
