‘Obamacare’ Launches Amid Government Shutdown - 03 Oct 2013 
Images relating to the launch of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The opening itself represented a victory for Obama's signature domestic policy
achievement after years of attack from Republican foes and delays in building the technology infrastructure to support sites in 50 U.S. states.

It defied a partial federal government shutdown precipitated by Republican efforts to delay the law's implementation. "As long as I'm president I won't give in to reckless demands by some in the Republican Party to deny affordable health insurance to millions of hard-working Americans," Obama said in the White House Rose Garden after his meeting with people who stand
to benefit from the healthcare overhaul.
Obamacare, will provide subsidized health insurance based on income through the state exchanges and expand Medicaid coverage for the poor from January 1, representing the most ambitious U.S. social program since Medicare plans for the elderly launched in the 1960s.

Counselors were still not able to enroll interested people using the online system. Technology experts and government officials were stumped about the reasons for the computer glitches plaguing the Obama administration's launch of new health insurance exchanges. They variously blamed an unexpected deluge of customers and outright errors that information technology (IT) teams labored throughout the day to fix.
