WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 30: The U.S. Capitol is shown as the U.S. Congress remains gridlocked over legislation to continue funding the federal government September 30, 2013 in Washington, DC. The House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution with language to defund U.S. President Barack Obama's national health care plan two days ago, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has indicated the U.S. Senate will not consider the legislation as passed by the House.

SEATTLE (AP) -- Washington state's new health insurance exchange is experiencing more problems on its second day of operation.
 
Although the website wahealthplanfinder.org may offer visitors a friendly bright green welcome, the internal workings of the site are experiencing glitches.
 
A call to the help line on Wednesday morning reached a friendly operator telling people the site was experiencing difficulties and to try back in an hour or so.
 
Computer problems closed the website on Tuesday shortly after it launched. The site reopened Tuesday afternoon but people were still experiencing problems on Wednesday morning.
 
In addition to the online marketplace, Washington residents can sign up by telephone or in person. Officials say it takes about an hour to go through the process for an individual or a little longer for a family.
