Oregon Just Gave Up on its Obamacare Website

Cover Oregon will now be covered by the same people who botched Healthcare.gov. Well, except for Kathleen Sebelius.
The Oregon board overseeing the state’s deeply flawed health insurance exchange unanimously approved the Obama administration’s plan Friday to take over the marketplace, making Oregon the first state to drop its enrollment Web site for HealthCare.gov.
Directors of the exchange, Cover Oregon, voted Friday to drop its enrollment Web site, which hadn’t fully recovered from a failed launch Oct. 1. Oregon, which was awarded $305 million in federal grants to build the exchange, remains the only state not allowing full online enrollment in Affordable Care Act health plans.
You know you’ve done a bad job when you have to have the Obama administration bail you out.
So we won’t have “Cover Oregon” anymore. But we’ll always have their wonderful, slightly terrifying ads.
