    I said this would be a train wreck when the liberals signed this into law and so far I couldn't be more right.


    Six days into the launch of insurance marketplaces created by the new health-care law, the federal government acknowledged for the first time Sunday it needed to fix design and software problems that have kept customers from applying online for coverage.

    The Obama administration said last week that an unanticipated surge of Web traffic caused most of the problems and was a sign of high demand by people seeking to buy coverage under the new law.

    But federal officials said Sunday the online marketplace needed design changes, as well as more server capacity to improve efficiency on the federally run exchange that serves 36 states.

    "We can do better and we are working around the clock to do so," said Joanne Peters, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services. The government is making software and hardware changes to smooth the process of creating accounts needed to gain access to the marketplace, federal officials said.


    3 and a half years these RETARDS have had to get this right and it's a CLUSTER%&^$ just to sign up, GOD only knows how much worse it's going to get.

    When exactly did you predict problems with the software? Must have missed that one.

    The software is just part of it. Train wreck of a program is what I have been saying, the software is just part of Husseincare. Would you say that a steering wheel isn't part of a car?

    I would confidently say that the "request a quote" button on the Chevrolet website is not part of my car. :wink:

    I would confidently say that logistics, operations, and administration is are integral part of healthcare. Not so much for a car so...bad analogy.

    I gave the site a pass last week, because I thought it was just being overrun with requests. Now I see that it just flat doesn't work.

    Fred - have you signed up for your hero's signature legislation yet? If not what are you waiting for as he is depending on people like you who support him through thick and thin to be the first ones.

    So...when exchanges don't work in states with Republican governors it's because the governors are trying to sabotage Obamacare, but when the federal site doesn't work it's no big deal?

    I am not sure but most pub governors told Husseincare to take a hike so the exchanges are federally run. Maybe Ohio did an exchange but I don't know if it's a cluster^%*( up there or not.

    You and a few million others. When you make broad-reaching blanket statements it's not hard to pick out something and claim you are right. You may be but it is really not indicative of any prescience on your part.

    By the way did you get laid off from your government job too?

    Proof positive you can't dress up a failed community organizing leftist ... and create an effective leader. If any CEO allowed a product like the "Obamacare web sites" to reach market, they'd be terminated by the company's board within a short period of time. Barry is is simply a mope, incapable of any productive endeavor.

    I don't have a government job, I am self employed. My uncle does and he got furloughed on Monday, he works for the USDA, he has already been told that he will get full pay though once this is all over.

    My mistake. I thought you told us a while back you had a job writing for the government with a six figure salary.

    Oh, Ok. I was just going to mention you misspelled "tail" in your signature. Thought you might want to know.

    Then I was going to ask if you had a hand in designing the software. :grin:
