National: ObamaCare exchange site posts error messages 

Many visitors to the official website for the federally run ObamaCare insurance exchanges were met Tuesday morning with an error message. The site was apparently overloaded with traffic. 

"We have a lot of visitors on our site right now and we're working to make your experience here better. Please wait here until we send you to the login page. Thanks for your patience!" the message read. 

By mid-morning, the healthcare.gov site declared "the system is down at the moment," and directed would-be participants to contact a call center if they need help immediately.
