Redding Record Searchlight

Why not put off until tomorrow what you can do today? Apparently that is the motto of about 150,000 folks in California.

Sunday — the next to last day of the six-month open enrollment period, saw that many enrollments. In fact, there is a report that there were 420,000 unique visitors to the site. As expected, there was an overload to the system and there is now another extension of sorts for California. As of this writing the extension for those seeking to purchase insurance on the exchange, Covered California, not off the exchange.
