All I see on every news outlet is that the website is broken and unusable.
It worked for me and the site seems to work very well.
Granted, this is a recent development, but the news media is reporting like it is last week.
I don't know if it is ignorance, laziness, or the desire to keep a story pumping.
I plan on emailing every outlet possible with the following message, and I hope everyone who has a similar experience will do the same.
"Please stop saying healthcare.gov does not work. I am self-employed and I got the "cancellation letter" that put me in a more expensive plan. With the website I got even better coverage with less deductible, co-pays, and caps.
I was early to the site and I had all the problems you still talk about.
In the last few days that has all changed. I am enrolled and never have a log-in or other problems.
Most news is reported by the minute, but on this you seem to be a week behind"

Note - if you seem stuck with verification or eligibility - create a new account. It worked for me.
