A Hill staffer passes along this email from the Senate Disbursing office, noting wryly, “If they cannot get this right for friggin Congressional staff, the rest of the country is screwed.”

Subject: DCHL Website down

This is a mass email sent to all Senate staff.

It is specifically intended for DCHL-eligible Senate employees

At this time DC Health Link is experiencing technical difficulties with their website.  They believe the system should be back up and running by noon today.  They apologize for the inconvenience.

This problem is with the D.C. site, so it’s affecting everyone on the Hill, not just on the Senate side.
