Why they’re asking people to return to a site that still doesn’t work is beyond me.

Via Politico:

The Obama administration is asking people frustrated by early application problems with HealthCare.gov to give the website a second chance.

So they’re reaching back out to the earliest HealthCare.gov shoppers who may have given up on the broken website after the awful Oct. 1 launch, hoping they’ll try again.

“Today, we’re beginning to send messages to those consumers who had account creation issues to let them know they can try again,” said Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Communications Director Julie Bataille. The agency, which will make the outreach to frustrated shoppers in waves, plans to send emails to about 270,000 people this week, she said.
