    More from Hawkstrike Still Not Working


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     This morning November 30, around 9:30a.m. Hawkstrikeattempted to sign up for health insurance on for his wife and himself. After spending 45 minutes on the site he lost access to his profile as he was about to pick his health insurance plan. Although he was booted off he was shocked that he made it that far in the process."I was surprised because I have made at least 6 previous attempts since October 1st to enroll and view choices before I made it this far," said Meekins. “Please note that CNN cannot independently verify this personal account, but there have been various technical problems that are widely known. Read more about these issues on, or learn more about the marketplace options in your state.”
    - CYDFISH7, CNN iReport producer

    This morning I created my login and began the long process of providing personal information for my wife and I to get a healthcare quote.


    After about 45 minutes of answering questions, the site said I was done and ready to review my options. Then the next screen (see attachment) popped up, saying "Sorry, our site is temporarily down."


    I have attempted the process many times in the past. Today is November 30th, long after the October 1st "start" date for the web site.


    How long must the American public endure this level of bureaucratic incompetence before we call this project what it is...a failure?


    I wonder how many people and companies are getting rich "fixing" this problem?
