Republicans are pointing to “glitches” in the new Obamacare websites as justification for shutting down the government. (PS looks like those “glitches” may have had some help.)
I’m writing this at a coffee shop. I parked on the street and went to the device that you use to purchase parking time, and the little LCD screen had a problem — the wrong words were showing up. SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT!!!
Here’s a TPM video of Fox News playing up the website problems yesterday:

I mean, seriously. Shut down the entire government because you don’t like a law that lets people with pre-existing conditions purchase health insurance? Because of a law that says insurance companies have to stop coming up with reasons not to pay for care when people get sick?
