Woman on front page of healthcare.gov disappears
Twitchy ^ | 10/27/2013 | Twitchy

Posted on 10/27/2013 4:56:45 PM PDT by Rusty0604

Yes, it’s true. The pleasant-looking, smiling woman who fronted healthcare.gov for the better part of four weeks has gone missing. And who can blame her?

We thought maybe she emigrated to the Spanish-language site, but no. Her photo has been replaced by cute circular icons encouraging consumers to apply for Obamacare by mail, over the phone, or in person. The problem is, those applications reportedly won’t get processed until the website is fixed:

With the supposedly state-of-the-art $600 million HealthCare.gov portal malfunctioning, President Barack Obama is urging Americans to go ahead and try to get health coverage by mailing in a paper application, calling the helpline or seeking help from one of the trained “assisters.”

But the truth is those applications — on paper or by phone — have to get entered into the same lousy website that is causing the problems in the first place. And the people processing the paper and calls don’t have any cyber secret passage to duck around that. They too have to deal with all the frustrations of HealthCare.gov — full-time.

Obmama cannot possibly have been serious about this "national health insurance" thing.

If a screw-up of this magnitude had happened under a Republican administration, every single committee and subcommittee chairman - from both houses of Congress - would be rushing to the MSM cameras to announce hearings to begin tomorrow morning.

When it came out that adult members of the First Family were on the payroll of the web site contractors, subpoenas and indictments would be flying in every direction.

Chris Matthews, Piers Morgan, Ed Shultz, Rachel Maddow, and countless others would be demanding a special prosecutor.

She had to have something going for her. Being the poster girl for 0care is weapons grade stupid.

She is the embodiment of the Julia character on Obama’s 2012 campaign website.

‘cute circular icons’

symbolic (subconsciously) of the initial obama election icons and most all of the other gov sites have transferred to similar designs so that memories of the POS will never disappear...

After she tried applying for insurance she was no longer smiling and had aged considerably.

I wondered is she were actually an 0bot who put herself out there for the inevitable ridicule, or a hapless face from a stock photo.

If the latter, imagine her surprise (and horror). If she were a stock photo chick *and* an 0bot, then well... lol.

With any luck she’s a resident/citizen of another country and has no clue about her “fame”. And that would also explain her smile, her not being an American subject to 0bamacare in the first place.

I wonder why people even go to the website. It only effects people who are uninsured and may be people whose company may end health care soon. If people who don’t need it stay off the site, it might work. I have not ever been to the site and never intend too.

Is esurance.com still up? It worked well when I went to buy insurance for my son a couple of years ago.

Bingo! It *was* supposed to fail under a Republican administration: Mitt Romney's. That was the setup. But, fortunately for the republican's, the socialists underestimated how unpalatable Mitt Romney (original ObamaCare author) was to conservatives. They narrowly avoided disaster (though I suspect strongly that some we would consider GOPe were involved in the hustle).

You forgot to include all of those people whose insurance has been cancelled thanks to Obamacare who now need to go buy new insurance.

Don’t buy the propaganda! Volumes are not the problem. Interfaces are the problem. Poor design, incomplete coding, and inadequate testing are the problem. As even the Congressional Dems have pointed out, Amazon does not crash the week before Christmas nor ProFlowers on Valentine’s Day in spite of tremendous volume.

When the feds finally get these paper applications, they still have to put them into the computer.

So how’s that gonna work?

There’s never been a screw-up of this magnitude in any previous administration, or any previous generation, or any previous century. This is the most spectacular failure of leadership and management in the history of mankind.

Not only were they unable to create a fairly simple web site which required technology that is at least 10 years old, and not only could no national leader explain what happened...specifically... that caused this failure...there isn’t a single person in the administration who CAN EVEN NAME the person who was in charge of this screw-up.

The single most basic premise of project management is, “WHO THE HELL IS IN CHARGE.” It’s bad to fail. But not even being professional enough to know who was responsible for the success and/or failure of the web site design and stand-up is an unimaginable failure of leadership.

C'mon, we all know who would've been responsible for a success...had there been one.

This happens in every post-baby-boom Democrat administration. Remember Craig Livingstone?
