House Speaker John Boehner complained today that he could not sign up for health care at the troubled HealthCare.gov website.

He had to re-start the process several times while spending four hours trying to sign up at HealthCare.gov.

At one point Thursday, Boehner tweeted his frustration — "Guess I'll just have to keep trying" — along with photos of himself at a computer and the error message he says he received. The House speaker has 583,000 followers on Twitter.

Nearly an hour after his tweet, Boehner received an email confirming he was signed up, his spokesman said.

Boehner's effort comes as Republicans crank up a highly organized effort to capitalize politically on the troubled rollout of the health care law's website, as well as millions of Americans receiving policy cancellations.

The Ohio Republican described his experience this way:

"Earlier this afternoon, I sat down to try and enroll in the D.C. exchange under the president’s healthcare law.



"Like many Americans, my experience was pretty frustrating. After putting in my personal information, I received an "error" message. I worked past that, but when I went to actually sign up for coverage, I got this 'internal server error' screen:



"Despite multiple attempts, I could not get past that point to sign up for a health plan. We’ve got a call into the Help Desk. Guess I’ll just have to keep trying…"

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
