By now any of you who needed to should have been able to sign up for health insurance through the online exchanges set up by Obamacare, but unfortunately that hasn't been the case because of all the problems with the site.

We asked many of you for your experiences on Tuesday, but no one would go on camera. In short, let's just say people around here aren't too happy, and local health officials aren't too pleased either.

According to the Obama Administration, the glitches are due to the high number of people logging on. But critics say there are larger problems that aren't being addressed.

Locally, health officials say until the site is fixed they have pretty much given up on it and have went back to the paper application process. But that too has it's own set of problems to deal with.

"It's hard now following up with these people, letting them know what their eligibility is because we personally won't get notified of anything, so its just following up with these people, making sure that the application went through appropriately and that they are becoming eligible." said Kevin Crocket

According to the Obama Administration, the site should be fixed by the end of November.
