There seem to be more problems on the federal government website on the second day for uninsured people to sign up for health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act.

Slowing the sign-ups are glitches in the federal system, and also staff shortages at the state level. Medicaid-eligible people have been able to sign up via the state's website, but for others, the state website routes people to the federal site where there have been problems.

In addition, the state only has 200 of the expected 1,200 outreach workers on the job to guide people through the process.
