BO and his university clones have never run anything but their mouths. This gargantuan project is so far above their expertise that it will be a windfall for every con-artist and crook that has a computer.

I’ve heard that the Connecticut Exchange is so messed up that it’s assigning already-used social security numbers to some people just because they might have been born in Hawaii.

John Gall’s comment from The Systems Bible, about how big complex systems built from scratch will always fail while the ones that evolve from simple systems will usually work comes to mind.

The version in Texas doesn’t work. It hangs up on the security questions page.

It’s a typical government program: lots of promise, expensive, disappointing in delivery of benefits, and fraught with unintended consequences.

Why am I not surprised. This huge fustercluck is NEVER going to be sorted out with any degree of equity, but it will work as a well-oiled machine when it comes to confirming the Current Regime now (and in their view, forever) squatting in the White Hut.

Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI were also confident they would reign long in 1774, and they stayed in office nearly eighteen years.

Of course, it did not end well.

Its called Cover Oregon. There are billboards up and down Interstate 5, there are radio spots twice an hour on the conservative stations and they wrote and produced a song that some hippies sing with acoustic guitars on TV with flowers, rainbows and other hippies dancing around.

Maybe they should have spent some of the promotion dollars on the programmers?

Not in the Democrats' world.

This "system" looks like it was pieced together by high school students over their fall breaks. Error messages seem "stock" from the compiler, they're not "trapped" and deciphered for the end-user, and the whole interface looks kludgy. There's probably a lot of animated .GIFs and blinking text when you finally register someone.

They Republicans in Congress should be using these examples--screaming from the tops of their lungs, telling America, "this healthcare system is not ready for prime time!"

It's a windfall for the crooks in congress too.

Every health care company lobbyist is lined-up outside congress with wads of cash. They buy a 'tweak' and their company makes billions. And the cost? They give 'donations' and buy 100,000 copies of the congressman's book... - 'How I Became A Servant of the People - and a Millionaire in Four Short Years'...

Not if you work for the gov’t. Private business lose customers and go out of business if things don’t work. Gov’t employees get promotions and big pensions.

This explains why these tyrants have no desire to listen to the will of We the People....their re-election campaigns and/or retirements are being funded and pockets are being lined so they have no need to listen to everyday citizens.

You’re right. The ONLY way for us to take power back is to become the group with the largest ‘wad’ of cash... the biggest ‘legal bribe’.

And we could do that by changing the way the ‘donation’ to presidential campaign is done on tax forms. Just change it so the ‘donation’ is made to a party... That ‘one dollar’ offering - if collected only from people who actually PAY taxes - would make us the group with the largest bribe.

This past weekend, we were having delays getting any site to come up on our computer. Delays were across the board. It wasn't due to our computer and internet service. Comcast had sent out on of its reps to fine tune a new modem last Thursday. The speed tests were off the pegs.

A younger relative in IT and computers, said that his peers felt it was due to people trying to log on to the sites over weekend. Then they jammed the phone lines trying to talk about the problems with friends and relatives.
