Boehner Encounters Difficulty In Signing Up For Obamacare (PHOTO)

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) tried to sign up for Obamacare on Thursday afternoon, but due to a few technical glitches he was unable to do so.

Boehner attempted to enroll in a health plan under the D.C. exchange, but got an “internal server error” multiple times.

“Despite multiple attempts, I was unable to get past that point and sign up for a health plan,” he wrote. “We’ve got a call into the help desk.  Guess I’ll just have to keep trying…”

Update: Boehner successfully enrolled in a health exchange after a phone call with DC Health Link.

“Kept at it, and called the DC Health Link help line,” he said in an update. “They called back a few hours later, and after re-starting the process on the website two more times, I just heard from DC Health Link that I have been successfully enrolled.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
