Unless by "better" you mean you can now get IN the site but not actually do anything... I don't consider that better. Nor does Joe InsuranceBuyer
I don't give a shit either way because I have insurance that I'm happy with and just held our benefits meeting at work yesterday where I learned my insurance will be going up a whopping $8 a month, but I decided to go to the healthcare.gov website to test both sides of this argument. I was able to create an account in about 5 minutes and have them send me my confirmation email with a link to the marketplace. I was able to view plans in the marketplace, but admittedly I didn't spend much time on the website.
I know there are well advertised problems with the rollout, but tonight I didn't have any issues.
