White House Claims 'Dramatic Progress' on Health Site
Wall Street Journal ^ | DEc 1, 2013 | Amy Schatz, Louise Radnofsky and

Posted on 12/01/2013 11:18:28 AM PST by Innovative

Obama administration officials, racing to beat a month-end deadline to fix the troubled federal insurance website, said Sunday there has been "dramatic progress" in patching HealthCare.gov but acknowledged "there is more work to be done" in improving the site and its underlying technology.

An eight-page report released Sunday morning by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services officials offered a few details of progress in fixing the site, which crashed shortly after its launch Oct. 1.

But they are NOT fixing the real problem: Obamacare itself.

Exactly. I have no doubts that they can eventually get the site itself to work. Obamacare itself is an unmitigated disaster, and nothing is going to fix it.

Imagine There’s a Website

Imagine there’s a website
It’s easy if you try
A brand new site to hang in
Its happiness, like pie
Imagine all the people buying plans today

Imagine there’s no crashing
It isn’t hard to do
No need for reboots and No apologies
Imagine a million people logging peacefully

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
We can all log on at once

Imagine easy access
I wonder if you can
No page will freeze or block you
Obamacare for all
Imagine O’s exchanges all throughout the land

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
We can all log on at once

Haha.

They announced last week that there would be no Spanish site for the foreseeable future and no SHOP access for small business.

Some improvement.

HP used to make a decent redundant server package.

Although , how one fails from

EPIC FAIL! SERVER 1

TO

EPIC FAIL! SERVER 2

And then expect better results?

Sounds like a risky scheme to me.

But that’s what this whole millennium has been.

OH, really?

How about thinking about this little ObamaFlowers gem I got in an email — pass it on — make it go viral— put it on Facebook (which I don’t do.)

Obama Flowers - Have you ordered yours yet?

(Receptionist) Hello, Welcome to ObamaFlowers, My name is Trina. How can I help you?

(Customer) Hello, I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.

(Receptionist) Yes, I am sorry about the website. It should be fixed by the end of November – or maybe December. But I can help you.

(Customer) Thanks, I ordered a “Spring Bouquet” for our anniversary, and wanted it delivered to my wife.

(Receptionist Interrupting) Sir, “Spring Bouquets” do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.

(Customer) But I have always ordered “Spring Bouquets”, done it for years, my wife likes them.

(Receptionist) Roses are better, sir. I am sure your wife will love them.

(Customer) Well, how much are they?

(Receptionist) It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package.

(Customer) What’s the difference?

(Receptionist) 6, 12,18 or 24 Red Roses.

(Customer) The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?

(Receptionist) It depends sir, what is you monthly income?

(Customer) What does that have to do with anything?

(Receptionist) I need that to determine your government flower subsidy, then I can determine how much your out of pocket cost will be. But if your income is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I can refer you to our FlowerAid department.

(Customer) FlowerAid?

(Receptionist) Yes, Flowers are a Right, everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you can’t afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.

(Customer) Who said they were a Right?

(Receptionist) Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it Constitutional.

(Customer) Whoa.....I don’t remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding Flowers as a Right.

(Receptionist) It is not really a Right in the Constitution, but ObamaFlowers is Constitutional because the Supreme Court Ruled it a “Tax”. Taxes are Constitutional. But we feel it is a Right.

(Customer) I don’t believe this...

(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is you monthly income sir?

(Customer) Forget it, I think I will forgo the flowers this year.

(Receptionist) In that case sir, I will still need your monthly income.

(Customer) Why?

(Receptionist) To determine what your ‘non-participation’ cost would be.

(Customer) WHAT? Your can’t charge me for NOT buying flowers!

(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It’s $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.....

(Customer)interrupting) This is ridiculous, I’ll pay the $9.50..

(Receptionist) Sir, it is the $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

(Customer) ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What a ripoff!!

(Receptionist) Actually sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.

(Customer) Look, I’m going to call my Congressman to find out what’s going on here. This is ridiculous. I’m not going to pay it.

(Receptionist) Sorry to hear that sir, that’s why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone your are using.

(Customer) Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING?

(Receptionist) So they get your GPS coordinates sir

(Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door)

(Receptionist) That would be the IRS sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers, have a nice day...and God Bless America.

I just now tried using Healthcare.gov

It worked fine until it got to calculating any federal subsidy I might be eligible for. It only gave me an estimate. Which means the actual monthly premium could be higher than the estimate.

But the real fly in the ointment is how high the deductibles are. Most plans are $5000 and up annually. And you must pay all of it before the plan will pay a single penny.

My current health insurance annual deductible is only $300. After that is paid, my plan pays 80% of everything.
