ObamaCare supporters whose fingers are crossed in the hope that the “website” now works satisfactorily can’t take much solace in this report from the Hill:

Capitol Hill staffers who signed up for ObamaCare through the District [of Columbia]’s exchange are being told to confirm their enrollments in person.

An email from the Senate Disbursing Office, obtained by The Hill, warns Capitol Hill staffers they shouldn’t trust the information provided to them by the DC Health Link (DCHL) site.

“It is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office,” the email reads.

“Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office.”

How many ObamaCare customers outside Congress have the benefit of a “disbursing office” to help them through the process?
