The above title is the predicted spin from Jay Carney for “Tales from the Train Wreck” stories like these:

Insurers say the federal health-care marketplace is generating flawed data that is straining their ability to handle even the trickle of enrollees who have gotten through so far, in a sign that technological problems extend further than the website traffic and software issues already identified.

Emerging errors include duplicate enrollments, spouses reported as children, missing data fields and suspect eligibility determinations, say executives at more than a dozen health plans. Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Nebraska said it had to hire temporary workers to contact new customers directly to resolve inaccuracies in submissions. Medical Mutual of Ohio said one customer had successfully signed up for three of its plans.

The flaws could do lasting damage to the law if customers are deterred from signing up or mistakenly believe they have obtained coverage.

Joe Biden should go on a “Recovery Blunder” job creation tour based on that.

Meanwhile, in Minnesota, your personal information is safe in the hands of the state Obamacare exchange — whoever else they accidentally send it to.

Don’t worry though, because the HealthCare.gov design team is hard at work finding fixes for all the site’s problems:
