Meet the first person to sign up for Obamacare

A Chattanooga man may have been the first person in the nation to sign up for Obamacare. Officials say the Healthcare.gov website was slammed with more than a million visitors before the sun even came up on its first day. That surge led to hours of crashes and error messages, but at 3 a.m. Chad Henderson finished the process to sign up for health insurance. When he tweeted that he'd finally accomplished it, presidential advisers started retweeting him. Because media outlets had a hard time finding people who were actually able to enroll, Henderson's phone blew up with calls from reporters. He gave interviews to the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and other national news outlets. The 21-year-old says he's relieved to know that he'll finally be able to afford healthcare coverage.
