It might have taken him a few hours, but Speaker of the House John Boehner has enrolled for health insurance through the Washington, D.C. exchange website Thursday.
“Like many Americans, my experience was pretty frustrating,” he wrote, providing screen shots of error messages. The website has been widely criticized for being user unfriendly.
But after a few hours, Boehner noted:
Kept at it, and called the DC Health Link help line. 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.
Boehner’s press secretary Brendan Buck tweeted:
UPDATE: Kept at it, and Boehner's enrolled. Sure didn't take long after the blog post. speaker.gov/general/my-att…—
