ADDED: During her testimony before Congress Wednesday, Secretary Sebelius claimed, “The website never crashed. It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability.”
Just minutes before Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was set to testify on Capitol Hill, the Healthcare.gov site crashed. Spot checks verified that the State of North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, and New Hampshire are all down – which likely means the entire federal site is down.
The site was still down thirty-minutes into Sebelius’ testimony.
Sebelius testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday as the focus of the ObamaCare rollout debacle shifted from the faulty website to the fact that millions are losing the health insurance President Obama repeatedly, and over the course of two presidential elections, promised them they could keep. CNN also reported Tuesday night that the Obama Administration was warned a month in advance that the site was not ready to launch.
