( "The website never crashed. It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability," Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said of the website during her testimony before Congress on Wednesday.

There are several problems with Sebelius' claim. First of all, the website could hardly be called "functional," considering that it hasn't functioned for millions of Americans and that it certainly doesn't function as it was intended or promised to. Secondly, her statement, "at a slow speed and very low reliability," doesn't make the situation seem any better. According to Sebelius, the website functions; it's just incredibly slow and unreliable. At least it never crashed. Oh, wait.

Directly contradicting Sebilius' statement, Breitbart reported, "Just minutes before Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was set to testify on Capitol Hill, the site crashed. Spot checks verified that the State of North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, and New Hampshire are all down - which likely means the entire federal site is down." was down for at least thirty minutes into Sebelius' testimony.

Hm, that's ironic. Kind of like how it's ironic that the Obama administration was warned a month in advance that the site was not ready to launch but then decided to proceed with the launch anyways. And then acted like 1) nothing was wrong, and 2) they had no idea about the website's problems. Or ironic in the way that Obama lied to millions of Americans, repeatedly promising us all for years and over two presidential elections that people would be able to keep their health insurance plans if they so choose, which has turned out to not be true at all, as many Americans are now losing their health care plans or being forced to pay new skyrocketing costs.
