The New Obamacare Health Care Exchange Site Has Already Crashed
Business Insider ^ | 10/01/2013 | Mandy Woodruff

Posted on 10/01/2013 8:35:04 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Just hours after debuting online, the new marketplace for Obamacare has apparently crashed.

Consumers are supposed to use Healthcare.gov as an outlet to sign up for coverage, but just after selecting the state where we wanted to enroll, an error message popped up citing heavy traffic from too many visitors. 

We tried to engage a customer service representative via the site's Live Chat feature, but after 15 minutes of waiting and no response, we gave up. 

We're not too fussed. Kinks are bound to happen this early in the site's roll out, and at least heavy traffic signals that consumers are eager to find out more about the new exchange.

If you'd like to read up on how the new health care exchange works, you can access this FAQ from the site perfectly fine.

LOL

They will claim it is the Tea Party doing this.

Next thing we’ll hear that it’s a crime to go to the obamacare website for any reason other than to sign up.

They won’t be able to fix it because of the government shutdown.

Yahoo News just had an article about the glitches in the web site, but the article vanished within minutes of it going up. I guess the media watchers in the government are still on the job and making sure the media is saying the “correct” things.

Nah, more likely they'll claim it's proof positive that millions of people are clamoring for Obamacare and that they're all geniuses for implementing it.

Joking aside, think about this -— Kathleen Sebelius has had since March 2010 to prepare for open enrollment’s October 2013 rollout. Besides churning out thousands of pages of regulations, what have she and her army been doing?

Someone performing as Sebelius has in the private sector would have been fired at least a year ago, when it become obvious that her implementation plan — having already missed critical deadlines almost two years ago – was still hopelessly behind.

Instead, Sebelius and the administration unilaterally, and illegally, delayed imposing the employer mandate requiring companies to cover “full-time” employees — defined as any employee who works an average of 30 hours per week — for one year. The political motivation behind this cop-out is so transparent, one wonders if the delay wasn’t hard-coded in the plan. There has been no change in the individual mandate, which requires individuals and families to have health insurance coverage beginning next year or face a fine. So the employer mandate delay combined with the still-present individual mandate will force more Americans into the state health insurance exchanges. The administration is likely intent on making the process of undoing the exchanges as difficult as possible.

A responsible steward of taxpayer dollars would never have considered opening the exchanges in their current state of disarray.

But no, it will be spinned by the lackey press to the low information voters as SABOTAGE by the GOP and their desire for a government shutdown.

Well, given their penchant for attacking and lying about the Tea Party, if they don’t blame the tea party they’re missing a bet...

Besides, right here on FR people are admitting and chortling about going there for no reason other than to mess with it.

Glenn Beck was talking about it on his radio show, that is, doing it himself along with his radio sidekicks also doing it.

The Leftards monitor this site and conservative talk radio therefore they know.

Easiest thing for them to do is to say the Tea Party is crashing the website that would otherwise be giving you affordable healthcare.

Because the TP wants you to go without healthcare.

If they don’t, well, they missed a golden opportunity.

If they do - then - true to form.

At that point, with the country suspicious of the NSA, wondering if they’ll dare say they’ll know where to find you (for inappropriate access of a govt website)?

I was really disappointed when these crashes happened. I was looking
forward to seeing and hearing the reactions from some of the dim freeloaders I know when they find out just how “free” and “affordable” their Dear Leader has made their mandatory obligation to buy healthcare. John Roberts was right. It’s just a tax. The healthcare part was a hoax.

Keeping track of whether Obamacare is working or not is a distraction from the more fundamental fact that it is bad law, immoral, destructive of freedom, opposed to God. Treating it as a question of functionality is a subtle way to accept the premise of its existence, as if to say, if it proves efficient, then it must be OK, a false conclusion.

It seems that Day One of the Obamacare exchanges wasn’t a day when the program was ready for primetime:

Tweets from all over the internet:

 

 

 

 

 

Officials are saying the crashes are due to the “tremendous response.” President Obama meets in the Oval Office today “with Americans who will benefit from the opening of Health Insurance Marketplaces and being able to comparison shop for the health plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act.”

I think they’re using the Java Spring Framework for their site in New York’s Healthcare exchange.

Here’s the error message I’ve been getting for the past hour when I click on the GET STARTED button:

Error 500: org.springframework.core.task.TaskRejectedException: Executor [java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor@d7c77916] did not accept task: org.springframework.context.event.SimpleApplicationEventMulticaster$1@4b5230a2

It seems some of the sites are running apache and some are running IIS based on the return errors. The problems are only going to get worse as there seems to be NO standardization.

Day One of the Obamacare exchanges is not quite the rollout supporters were hoping for:

Just before 10 a.m., the administration was already apologizing for the glitches:

Meanwhile, statewide exchanges are also running into their own problems:

California:

Colorado:

Connecticut:

Kentucky:

Maryland:

Minnesota:

New York:

Oregon:

Washington:

Agree.

Any larger size company would have run multiple tests on the system before launching, including overload simulations.

Also, where else can your approval be below 50 ( Obama) and congress
approaching single digits, and be deemed competent.

To those of us who can think, and don’t depend on handouts, this is totally unacceptable.
