The IT glitches plaguing Obamacare

Barrack Obama's ambitious plan to offer healthcare to millions of uninsured Americans has hit a hurdle at every turn. While the shutdown raises the risk of a financial meltdown, the Obamacare website has been bogged down by a killer combo of high traffic and stark glitches.

Days after the launch of the federal government's Obamacare website, millions of Americans looking for information on new health insurance plans were still locked out of the system even though its designers scrambled to add capacity.

Government officials blame the persistent glitches on an overwhelming crush of users - 8.6 million unique visitors by Friday - trying to visit the HealthCare.gov website this week.
