  1. Web Glitches Snarl Obamacare Enrollment

    Online problems and an overwhelmed phone system ended up shutting out thousands of Americans who joined the last-minute rush to sign up for Obamacare by yesterday’s deadline.

Officials are confident they have more than seven million people enrolled, and the registration deadline has been extended for those who started the process but were unable to finish because of the hitches.
