Late night comedians united this week to torment the bug-riddled web portal for President Barack Obama’s “historic” health care legislation.
NBC’s Saturday Night Live picked up the comedy baton last night.
The show opened with a sketch featuring Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius (Kate McKinnon) giving Americans tips on navigating the healthcare.gov site.
“Have you tried restarting your computer?” she advises before explaining why the site is so problematic.
“Unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time,” she says, advising people to visit other helpful web destinations … like kayak.com for their medical concerns.
“It’s where you can purchase airline tickets to Canada and buy cheaper prescription drugs,” she says.
The sketch even provided a faux “frequently asked questions” page with help on queries like this: “Does ObamaCare cover mental health issues caused by using this web site?”
