We should be getting numbers every day.
everyone responsible for this debacle from the top to the bottom should be fired. This would be unacceptable in the private sector. The people would be gone.
Antone know a good hacker?
Yeah, mid-November, 2025.
So, in four weeks they are going to fix something
that they’ve been working on for YEARS????
I don’t tin so.
They’ve been waiting 80 years to nationalize healthcare, it makes no difference how many enroll as the IRS will collect taxes on the slaggers, and it’s the law if the land so eat your peas.
A lot of commie libs will be playing Dialing for Healthcare around the Thanksgiving table this year. Gobble, gobble, gobble.
Sum Ting Wong.
I’m just waiting for one of the hackers to hack the system and administer a swift end to the abomination.
At least we wouldn't have to sit on a spinning website for two hours or more...
Are Obamacare subsidies based on net income or gross income?
If you max out a traditional IRA or 401K, can you bring down your household income to fall under the four times the federal poverty limit threshold?
Once again, it’s OK for Bammy to delay KommieKare, but not Congress.
Well, we had "Summer of Recovery" I, II, III, IV, V
We will now have Obamacare reboot I, II, III, IV, V
Gee, they could hire all those software wonks out of work @ Solyndra, Fisker and about 15 other green energy firms to help on the project... ( sarc / off )
Avoid answering n00b questions on stack overflow and keep the trainwreck going!
Four weeks including all testing? Sure.......
The ACA is dead already. The administration just refuse to call time of death. Here’s why:
1) after 3-4 days of reporting glitches, fact is, that alone will cause most folks to avoid going to the site altogether. Word has it there are only 51-61K signups so far. That about 1% of what’s needed to keep the whole thing running.
2) With word out on the numbers, good luck finding decent American programmers willing to touch that site. Oh, I’m sure some would, in exchange for an ACA opt-out ticket - and lots of cash.
3) With many of the glitches being known publicly, and they still can’t fix them fast enough, it’s only a matter of time before the foreign exploits begin. The added motivation will be all the information Americans are REQUIRED to enter.
side note: As I hear GOP calling for investigations into the bad programming, I don’t hear the call from dems. My guess: the flawed web site is probably the BIG topic in their internals, with some probably saying use that excuse to give the GOP what they want. Problem is: the DNC is broke, and if they give in, they are all but finished.
4) It is/was an absolutely insane concept to require people to go to a web site - period. The entire ACA roll-out was flawed. Where’s the hard copy forms? Media promotion? Talk about your state-sponsored media all you want, but you would have to give them an ‘F’ on their promotion of this. In fact, the first things they had to say was from reporters who couldn’t even sign up.
Take this from a web engineer folks: When it comes to the web, It’s not about dem or gop, left or right. It’s 2013. If the site doesn’t work, customers leave, and they won’t come back, especially with ongoing bad reports. So at this point, maybe not the full ACA, but at least HealthCare.gov is dead for now. Their only hope is to repackage it and introduce it as something different. But if those bottom line premium numbers don’t change, it’ll be doomed to failure again.
