Report: Only 5 Iowans Have Signed Up for Obamacare

A local Iowa affiliate reports that it could confirm only 5 people in that state have signed up for Obamacare:

The "system doesn't seem to be working for most who log-on," says the local reporter. "We tried multiple times on Wednesday to see how long it would take to set up an account to try to shop the rates from the plans. Each time we logged in, within 5 minutes, the system was down."

"Also today, the insurance division office in Des Moines told us, 'We cannot say for sure if anyone has successfully signed up through the healthcare.gov website," says a reporter. 

"Tonight, one of the two exchange providers ... said a total of 5 Iowans have obtained insurance."
