Obamacare became law three-and-a-half years ago, but shockingly the website for President Obama's signature piece of legislation was a horrible failure when it rolled out in October. Sure, the website is now functioning pretty well after a two-month makeover, but if I were President and there was a program known as "Obeidallah-care" or "Dean-aid," I can assure you that the website for that program would've been amazing from Day 1.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia is meeting federal projections for enrollment in the Obama administration's health care program but still has a ways to go to reach the final target on March 31.
Figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show that 102,815 Virginians had enrolled by March 1. The government had projected 101,600 by Feb. 28.
Nearly 25,000 more Virginians would have to enroll to meet the projection of 127,000 by March 31, the end of the open enrollment season.
About 4.2 million have signed up nationally. The government projected 5.65 million by Feb. 28 and 6 million by March 31.
Eighty percent of Virginians who have enrolled are eligible for tax credits to help offset the cost of premiums - about the same as the national percentage.
