Obamacare Web Official: 60 to 70 Percent of Website Still Unbuilt
Breitbart News ^ | November 19, 2013 | Breitbart News

Posted on 11/19/2013 10:46:15 AM PST by Raebie

“Let me get this correct,” Gardner asked incredulously, “60 to 70 percent of healthcare.gov still needs to be built?” Chao answered, “Healthcare.gov, the online application, verification, determination, plan compare, getting enrolled…that’s 100 percent there.” But he admitted, “There is the back office systems, the accounting systems, the payment systems, they still need to be built.”

So?

100 million have already signed up -- according to Obama's webcast -- before it crashed.

Would he lie? How big and how many lies would he tell to CYA?

So, they’re going to go live on Dec 1 with a redesigned site only half built, and presumably less-tested than the original one if they’re still developing most of it 10 days out.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

They dont need the others till January when all the policies officially are canceled.

Nothing that more time and $$$$ cant buy.

Totally irrelevant because there aren’t doctors and hospitals who will take the garbage even if someone enrolls. Third-world care, ya think? How many will die during this debacle courtesy of Democrats desirous of power over our lives from cradle to their determining when we go to our graves?

So what will be the SECURITY situation of the website after Nov. 30? If it is not secure, folks would be crazy to give their personal information to that website.

Story problem time! Let's do the math, shall we?

If it took Barry's brilliant team of techies 3.5 years to build 30-40% of healthcare.gov, how long will it take them to complete the remaining 60-70%?

Class?

Buehler?

Anybody?

Signing up for ObamaCare might be like trying to get a free Red Lobster $50 gift certificate on the web. You keep getting messages that say, "You are almost finished. Just a few more questions to answer."

And after you answer those few more questions another similar message pops up that you are almost finished which never actually happens.

Exactly.

So this question will kick off a firestorm of debate, and I apologize in advance for doing so,...

Did John Roberts, with his understanding of how the executive branch functions realize that the President and his minions couldn’t possibly pull this off?

Did he, in fact, “stealthily” crush progressivism for a generation with the stroke of a pen?

Meh, probably not.

Probably not specifically regarding the website, but I think (pass the Nomex) that Roberts did see flaws in the law and how it carried the seeds of its own destruction. History will be the final arbiter of that...but if he felt that collapsing under it’s own weight or a legislative remedy was better than a judicial one, he might not have been alone in such a view. See tagline.

That's what I was thinking. The unbuilt portions are kinda the heart of the system, aren't they? I know the front end isn't simple to build, but what is it there for if there is no back end?

This isn't about delivering healthcare.

It's about two things:

1 - Scamming many trillions of dollars from the economy to finance Obama's racist wealth-redistribution and socialist utopia.

2 - Controlling the population to give Big Liberal Government a free hand.

That’s what I hate about most websites: Too many graphics and it take a long time to load. Some programmers just want to show off their ‘talents’ at getting animated thingys to dance or twirl or whatever. And the ‘mouse-over’ buttons that pop up a menu are very annoying, especially when you can’t get them to go away after the mouse pointer moves to a new location.......................

"So what will be the SECURITY situation of the website after Nov. 30? If it is not secure, folks would be crazy to give their personal information to that website."

And this is exactly how you know that they Just Don't Care: OF COURSE that site is gonna be a neon-glowing target for hackers around the globe... it's a virtual gold mine of identity info. To put any of it - ever - on line without having the state-of-the-art in web-based security is criminally irresponsible.

No, Roberts was blackmailed with revelations of his current sexual behavior by analysis of his NSA file.

This poster at Breitbart gets it:

pinecone321

Since the first payment for your plan is required in order to be fully enrolled in Ocare, and there is no payment system built yet at all, there are zero people successfully enrolled in the exchange. Yet Obama proclaimed that there were 100 million people enrolled in Ocare.

What a debacle.

This is what happens when you put the least qualified person in charge.

Barry Soetoro’s pot smoking and coke snorting are not qualifications for any part of the job of President.

What exactly were they doing for 3+ years? No way it takes that long to build a website, not even this one. Guess they were too busy having fun spending all that $$$$$ to be bothered to actually do their jobs. No way we ever see a financial report to find out where the money went, but you know the amount wasted (pocketed) is immense.
