The president's healthcare sign-up web page was supposed to handle tens of thousands of people at once. But in a trial run days before its launch, just a few hundred users flatlined the site.
The result? The website crashed shortly after midnight as a couple thousand people tried to start the process, two people familiar with the project told the Post.
The report is the latest criticism of the problem-plagued site - criticism so acute that even the President said there was " no sugarcoating" the difficulties Americans have faced trying to sign up for insurance coverage.
