(Newser) – It took a few tries, but ObamaCare has a new high-profile enrollee: John Boehner. The House speaker, however, made a point to blog about his trouble signing up yesterday after getting an error message. "Despite multiple attempts, I was unable to get past that point and sign up for a health plan," he wrote. "We've got a call into the help desk. Guess I'll just have to keep trying..." Less than an hour after the blog post, he got an email from DC Health Link telling him he had been successfully enrolled, reports CNN. "Quite a coincidence," quipped his spokesman. (Members of Congress generally will have an easier time of it than other enrollees.)
