The consensus opinion by just about every expert, journalist, and even the White House itself, is that the Government did a poor job in its execution of rollout of the Healthcare Exchanges under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The federal website that hosts the exchanges for many states constantly had connection issues, and many people could not even log on. In the first month, Katherine Sebelius, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, announced that only 106,185 individuals have enrolled in the Healthcare Exchanges. This enrollment number is way below the goal set by HHS before commencement of the rollout.
