AP

After four hours of being put on hold and “dozens of errors,” Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX) complained Saturday on Twitter that he wasn’t sure if he successfully enrolled in a health care plan.

In a series of tweets, the Texas Republican detailed his frustration while trying to sign up for health coverage through the Washington, D.C.-based online exchange, where most members of Congress enroll in insurance policies.
