Healthcare website back up and running
The affordable care act website is back up and running after being temporarily shutdown.
Healthcare.gov made it's debut on October 1st of this year.
Officials say they took the site down to do some maintenance.
The Obama Administration set a deadline of midnight Saturday to overhaul the website, which has been plagued with problems.
Their goal is to make sure the site can handle 50-thousand users at any time and 800-thousand users per day.
"The challenge isn't how many lanes do you have on the highway, it's how fast the cars can go down the highway. Because if there is any breakdown, you're going to have a big traffic jam and pile up behind you."
Officials say this isn't a relaunch, instead they say it's an upgrade and that some bugs may remain.
And those website fumbles are costing President Obama.
Polls say his approval rate is at 41-percent.
