    Government lies? Or government incompetence?

    California's health insurance exchange vastly overstated the number of online hits it received Tuesday during the rollout of Obamacare.

    State officials said the Covered California website got 645,000 hits during the first day of enrollment, far fewer than the 5 million it reported Tuesday.

    The state exchange had cited the 5 million figure as a sign of strong consumer interest and a major reason people had so much difficulty using its $313-million online enrollment system.

    Oh I wouldn't say 5 million vs 645,000 is a "hair's" worth of difference. Others may not agree though.
