Website called “obscenely slow and fraught with technical problems.”

Via Lincoln Journal Star:

The federal website Nebraskans must use to apply for tax subsidies and insurance under the Affordable Care Act is still obscenely slow and fraught with technical problems.

Since the site opened Oct. 1, it appears fewer than 100 Nebraskans have been able to finish the online application process and purchase health insurance plans.

More than 150,000 people in the state who likely qualify for health insurance tax credits will have to use the site to purchase insurance if they want to obtain those credits.

The online application process has been taking two to five hours to complete, with glitches and frustrations along the way.
