seems to be working fairly well, and passed tests before it went live. there is another company that developed the front part where you create an account and put in your personal information. that's got to be verified with government agencies before you can get into looking for a plan. they will testify that a late decision late in the game to make people do that before they could look at the prices and shop for a plan, may be contributing to some of the problems here. so more on that starting in about 15 minutes. also the white house is clarifying the 6-week extension of time to sign up for a plan, saying that you always had until the end of march but it wasn't clear, people thought they had until the middle of february. they want to change that to make it more clear that you have until the end of march to sign up without penalty. >> far, far from simple. lots to report on this. thank you very much. >> a new study out finds the age
