PHOENIX - A lot of people trying to sign up for new government healthcare plans say they're angry and frustrated when it comes to accessing Healthcare.gov .
Every time they try to sign up, they say something goes wrong.
The webpage was loading Thursday, and you could click around on it a bit.
But it's just a matter of how far you can get before it freezes. Some people are willing to wait it out.
Signing up for Obamacare has been a frustrating process for Daniel Leif.
"It doesn't do anything, it goes to a white screen," he said.
The graphic designer didn't expect it take this long just to find out his options online.
"It never works. It took me three days just to create an account," Leif said.
Daniel's supporting a family of three with a baby on the way. He's not covered by the small public relations firm he works for, and he wants to compare the government plan to private insurance plans.
But so far he's had no luck.
"I'm not worried about getting it immediately," he said. "I'm just going to wait until it clears up and they say ok, now you can all go and it works, and everyone can find health insurance."
He made it through the first step, creating a username and password.
But he couldn't get past that until Thursday. Daniel filled out the application in about 20 minutes, but then when he got to the final page-- the screen froze.
It happened several times, so he couldn't check his results and enroll.
So now, Daniel's back to square one, but he says he's not giving up.
"As long as I have insurance, I don't care where it comes from," he said.
Daniel plans to wait a few days and then try to use the website again.
If you want to sign up for a healthcare plan right now you can skip the website and sign up with a paper application or over the phone.
You still have five months to enroll.
