Obamacare has not been helped politically by the government shutdown, and some prominent politicians, and their filibusters.


But it is becoming impossible to blame all the problems on politics or high sign-up rates, as the administration has attempted to do.

Even longtime administration supporter Ezra Klein called the site a "disaster," saying, "They’ve done a terrible job on this website.”


Klein also added that there had been a “big traffic bottleneck, but behind that traffic bottleneck there’s now the worry that there are deeper, more systemic problems.”
