Sebelius has brought in top gurus from RedHat, Google, and Oracle.
Because every bug filled foundering software mess needs more egotistic generals to harangue the troops, LOL.
If the Obama trons have any brains they will patch what they have to look presentable as possible while starting a new site fresh by people who know what they are doing. Starting clean is the best approach
Amazing. How did they build a web site for less than a billion dollars? Obama himself couldn’t perform such a miracle even if he programmed it himself!
It sounds like this is only a shopping comparison site. For enrollment there is mentioned another link or number to call that attaches back to the government ??.
I think you can go to
and do the same thing.
IMNSHO, I the CGI site was PROGRAMED to Fail.
Can the Health Sherpas get Obama up to the top of Everest and leave him there?
Obamacare is a wealth transfer scheme; from the young to the old, from the healthy to the unhealthy, from those that don't want acupuncture and maternity services to those that do, etc, etc.
Given a choice between paying $500 a month or $95 a year, what will the young, healthy, and poor do? And when they go Galt, the system collapses (ahead of schedule).
So Obamacare needs to add another subsidy (ben bernanke's printing press to the poor and middle class) so it doesn't look like as bad as it is. But to know how much subsidy, you need to collect the user's information and integrate with a dozen antique computer systems first.
Where did they get six hundred million dollars to put the site together?
The real laugh is when u are able to see the plan costs in your zip. Holy sh!t they are ridonkulious. There is gonna be soma massive blowback. 2014 can’t come soon enough.
Just remember, while they’re scrambling as hard as they can to fix the website, that its complete and utter failure merely masks the true problems on the back-end side of things, where “completed” transactions get lost or mangled and personally identifying information has no reasonable expectation of security or privacy.
If they do manage to get the front-end “up and running”, that’s just going to be the beginning of the real problems.
