BREAKING: Obamacare’s Data Center Crashed. Now offline until further notice. (VIDEO)

Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on again?

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the ongoing disaster that has been called the rollout of Obamacare, it now appears that the critical data center tied to Healthcare.gov has crashed. All enrollments have been halted to the 50 states.

Penalties for not enrolling in the program begin Feb. 14th. 

This is just the latest in a string of critical failures in the launch of the president’s health care programs. The data center is operated by Verizon, who have been summoned by President Barack Obama to conduct a “tech surge” to fix Healthcare.gov. They have no idea yet when the center will be active again. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is due to testify before congress about the program later this week.

The outage started early on Sunday and caused the data center to lose connectivity with the federal government’s data services hub which links all the healthcare data together. Without it, consumers are unable to determine if they are eligible, or apply for health care programs. Just one day before, Sebelius was praising the hub’s ability to perform complex calculations quickly. She touted it as a success.

The website, when the data center is functional, is providing faulty data to insurers and individuals applying. Insurers are receiving information that is ‘totally useless’. Citizens are being given quotes for plans that do not match with the insurers website. Many are complaining of “sticker shock” due to soaring costs of premiums, without additional services provided.

News outlets are reporting on the president’s lie that if people wanted to stay with their previous plans, they could keep them

    Someone at HHS probably picked up a phone in another room to make a call and didn’t hear the EarthLink dial up screech until it was too late.

    The article has two errors. One, you’re not required to ENROLL in the program, you’re required to have insurance.

    Second, the date for this requirement is Feb 15th, not Jan 1.

    Wrong Larry, we are required to have insurance that meets or exceeds the requirements in obamacare. Dude, that is why millions are having their insurance cancelled.

    I get great pleasure watching the whores in Washington fail at pretty much everything they do.
