More People Sign Biden's Online Birthday Card than Sign Up on Obamacare Website

November 20, 2013 - 5:31 PM

Today is Vice President Joe Biden's birthday and 132,381 people have gone online and signed an e-card wishing him a happy one, Democratic National Committee Digital Director wrote in an e-mail to supporters today:

"Today's is the Vice President's birthday, and I keep looking to see how many people have signed our card for him.

"As of this morning, the number was up to 132,381. And that's already pretty incredible."

By contrast, after a month, only 106,185 people have signed up for Obamacare through the government's beleaguered Healthcare.gov website, the Health and Human Services Department reports:

"106,185 (10 percent) of the 1,081,592 total Marketplace plan eligible persons have already selected a plan by clicking a button on the website page."
