Representative Jim Himes (D., Conn.) is defending Connecticut’s state-run health-care exchange, Access Health CT, on Twitter:
On the exchange’s launch day, it received 28,000 visitors and accepted 167 applications.
Himes dismissed derision of the number of accepted applications:
Critics of @AccessHealthCT are deriding the glitches due to volume and saying too few people signing up. Oh, and socialism.— Jim Himes (@jahimes) October 2, 2013
