White House: Health care website got 375,000 visitors on Monday by noon

The White House says the government's health care website received 375,000 visitors on Monday by noon. That's a surge in use on the first business day since Obama administration officials declared that the government's beleaguered online insurance service was now able to accommodate a vast majority of users.
The launch of the website on Oct. 1 proved to be disastrous. The administration spent the next two months working to upgrade the computer system.
Consumers were still experiencing delays on Monday. Carney says users were placed in a queue and advised when to return for speedier service.
