Mind -boggling indeed.

In Oregon, Obamacare is being called an “epic failure” by lawmakers as the state-based exchange continues to fail. It’s been nearly two months since the pro-Obamacare state launched their state based exchange site on October 1 and not a single person has been able to sign up. Things have gotten so bad, paper applications and fax machines were brought in to help expedite the process (yes, you read that correctly).
“I think just about everybody in Oregon is surprised and frustrated with where we are right now,” said Jesse O’Brien, a health care advocate for the Portland-based consumer advocacy group OSPIRG. “With Oregon having a reputation as a state that supports health reform and with a governor that is very enthusiastic, I think everyone was expecting we’d be in a much different position.”
“It is such an epic failure, literally it’s mind-boggling,” said state Rep. Jason Conger, a Republican from central Oregon who’s running for Sen. Jeff Merkley’s seat next year.
