While the Obama Administration promised that the“vast majority” would have glitch-free access to healthcare.gov by November 30, it seems the site is still posing problems.

Breast cancer survivor Lynn Beckler has been trying to enroll since October 10th, a timespan of more than 60 days. After speaking to at least 10 Obamacare navigators and attempting to enroll via the mail, Beckler explained she still couldn’t get into the system.

“Nobody can tell me why, or when, or how its just stuck.”

NBC affiliate WBAL-MD captured the story:

With instances such as this one, it is not surprising the Obama Administration fell millions short of its enrollment goal. The Department of Health and Human Services projected 3.3 million would be enrolled in the marketplace by December 31. Only 365,000 individuals have actually selected plans.
