Comedian John Green Tries to Sign up for Obamacare

A lot of people we know want to sign up for Obamacare and a lot have tried. Frustrating delays and snags seem to beset nearly everyone who jumped on the bandwagon after October 1st and attempted to apply. The good news is that many actually broke through the technical barriers and succeeded on websites run by their states. The federal website is a story in glitches and delays unto itself.

Comedian John Green turned the camera on and attempted again and again to do the Obamacare signup. He also made a stab at applying for private health insurance. Those of you who spent hours working at this will identify with his determined pursuit. But you may also be surprised by his conclusions.
