Obamacare has been officially live for over a day now, and it's hard to declare anything but success for the hugely controversial policy. Granted, there are numerous technical glitches abounding. (In fact, I tried to create an account on the federal exchange and it wasn't available.) However, the problems are almost entirely due to massive demand and an overwhelming amount of people trying to sign up. With that sort of volume on day 1, it will be very difficult for the critics to claim the American people aren't interested in Obamacare. After all, 48 million Americans remained uninsured. In addition, healthcare stocks should continue to get a boost (up 53% already over a year's time) as more and more people start paying for coverage.
