This tweet sums up the revelation in this video better than I ever could.
It's just mind-boggling. If the payment system isn't even built, how in the world did HHS or the WH think this thing could go live on Oct 1?

We were told only 26,794 people enrolled in the federal exchange, but that number included people who had not checked out yet, but had a plan in their outbox. Did anyone actually check out an Obamacare plan? How did they pay? I did a search of the term "check out" on healthcare.gov and the results don't refer to how to out a plan.
