The federal government healthcare website went into operation yesterday, but all that many people saw was an error screen telling to keep waiting.

The government servers were not able to handle the number of people trying to get information on buying the health insurance plans that Obamacare says they must have, or pay a heft federal fine.

The "navigators" hired by the government to help you through this system also were locked out of the software but one of them, Michelle Fitzgerald at Cherry Street Health Services, told WOOD TV that once you are able to get on, you wil find it is pretty straightfoward.

This healthcare Exchange or "Marketplace",  as the government has started calling it now,  would be used by people who do not have healthcare through work.
