Little did they know it would also fail to register a single voter.
The federal website that enrolls Americans in ObamaCare also asks applicants if they want to register to vote, raising questions about why the Obama administration would further complicate an already crash-prone website.
Thirty six states are using the federal site – also called exchanges or market places — to enroll customers in government-mandated health insurance.
At least four other states — California, Connecticut, New York, Vermont and Wisconsin — also are asking or intend to ask customers if they want to register to vote.
“The [website] launch has not gone well,” Nick Novak, a spokesman for the John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy, which noticed the voter-registration question on the Wisconsin site, told FoxNews.com on Monday. “Why are they cluttering up the site?”
Well, since they’re enslaving you for life, they may as well make sure they’re go your vote, although there could be unexpected ramifications.

Brian Cook, a spokesman for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in August the exchanges must include the question, under the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. The law requires states to offer voter registration at government offices that provide public assistance.
Ah, Motor Voter, of course. That sure has worked out well.
