(CBS News) President Barack Obama found himselfaffecting the website where Americans are supposed to be able to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
The White House tried to take the edge of the embarrassment by peopling a podium with folks it said Obamacare would benefit.
Janice Baker was touted as the first to enroll in Delaware, although Obama admitted it took her a few tries.
CBS News called Baker on Tuesday to find how just how long it took.
She said it took her seven hours over 11 days to enroll online. She had to call the hotline for help.
But she says it was worth it.
Baker had been rejected by insurance companies three times before over a pre-existing condition. That's illegal now under Obamacare.
