Obamacare Patient Zero: Affordable Care Act site 'needs to be fixed for sure'
The man touted by several national media outlets and government officials for successfully signing up for Obamacare Tuesday is a volunteer for an Obama grassroots organization.
Chad Henderson, who is being hailed as a hero for becoming one of the few Americans to navigate the Obamacare website and sign up for health insurance coverage, told the Daily Caller News Foundation that his history as an Organizing for America volunteer did not provide him any special skills for navigating the Obamacare exchange, which he agreed was very poorly structured.
Henderson wrote on his Facebook page that he was set to give interviews to POLITICO, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post and The Washington Post to discuss his ability to sign up for Obamacare coverage.
Henderson also wrote on Facebook that “a few of President Obama’s top advisers had shared my ObamaCare enrollment story with their Twitter followers.”
The Twitter account @Obamacare retweeted Henderson’s statement that he’d enrolled in the program.
