• Deaf Californians Attempt to Enroll in Obamacare…and Get Sent to a Sex Hotline

    The enrollment process suddenly got a whole lot more exciting

    Okay, now this is just sad. A man named Jeff Brown was attempting to sign up for Obamacare during the final enrollment period on Monday, and when he dialed the TTY number (designed for people with hearing loss), he got a whole lot more than he bargained for.

    Brown phoned the exact number that was given to him by Covered California, and when he did so, he was greeted with the following message:

    “Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Ladies, to talk to interesting and exciting guys free, press “one” now. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press “two ” to connect free now.”

    Covered California at first denied responsibility for the error, but upon investigation, they fessed up to posting the number on their official website.

    Incidentally, Obamacare doesn’t cover Viagra. But on the plus side, it looks like Jeff Brown won’t be needing it now.
