4. Its repairable
Speaking from experience, I have never seen a major website rollout that wasn't riddled with bugs. This happens with corporations too, not just governments.

Short-term (1-2 weeks), expect "quick fixes" to get the site functioning at a minimally accepted standard. This may involve minor tweaks to the software, or, more likely, throwing more hardware at the problem to mask the performance and scalability issues.

mid-term (4 - 8 weeks), expect a redress of the architectural issues with both the hardware and software.

The contention of programmers with brains is that the whole system should ne scrapped because a new one can be built faster than fixing the old one.

Ok, so you lack an aptitude for Math.

No problem.

Math is simply great for those who have an inborn aptitude for the subject.

Math is my favorite subject.

Most importantly, be a good human being which is more important than being excellent at Math.

Best Regards.

Already you are off.

Its not a unified system. Its a way to integrate several other systems. Thats the crux of the problem. Its not like Amazon where you can start from scratch. There is no east way to get some of these systems to communicate with each other - hence the mess in the VA

Whats gets me is that the red states HAD the opportunity to develop their own. They passed. As a result they shouldnt have the right to critique.

Volunteerist has no right to gripe. Our CT site works fine.

I do agree with the pundits it was a stupid idea to set up login accounts first. You dont have to do that with our CT site, and it takes about 10 seconds to get a quote.

I certainly can understand why Obama chose not to acknowledge the flaws beforehand, in light of the political theatre. If these were normal times, he could of simply delayed roll out.

Are you denying that your or my ancestors were paid for their services, and that this money came from tax revenues? Don't know about you, but my ancestors weren't slaves.

Moron,

it proves that tax revenues from gas excise taxes aren't enough to cover the expenses of road and bridge maintenance, hence, additional federal funds are needed - funds that you don't contribute too. Moocher!

growing consensus of IT experts, outside and inside
the government, have figured out a principal reason
why the website for Obamacare’s federally-sponsored
insurance exchange is crashing. Healthcare.gov forces
you to create an account and enter detailed personal
information before you can start shopping. This, in
turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the
government verifies your information and decides
whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS
bureaucrats knew this would make the website run
more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting
people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s
insurance plans would scare people away.
HHS didn’t want users to see Obamacare’s true
costs
“Healthcare.gov was initially going to include an
option to browse before registering,” report
Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky in the Wall Street Journal .“But that tool was delayed,
people familiar with the situation said.” Why was it delayed?“An HHS spokeswoman said the
agency wanted to ensure that users were aware of their eligibility for subsidies that could help pay
for coverage, before they started seeing the prices of policies .”(Emphasis added.)
As you know if you’ve been following this space, Obamacare’s
bevy of mandates, regulations, taxes, and fees drives up the cost of
the insurance plans that are offered under the law’s public
exchanges. A Manhattan Institute analysis I helped conduct found
that, on average, the cheapest plan offered in a given state, under
Obamacare, will be 99 percent more expensive for men, and 62
percent more expensive for women, than the cheapest plan offered
under the old system. And those disparities are even wider for
healthy people.
That raises an obvious question. If 50 million people are
uninsured today, mainly because insurance is too expensive, why
is it better to make coverage even costlier?
Political objectives trumped operational objectives
The answer is that Obamacare wasn’t designed to help healthy
people with average incomes get health insurance. It was designed
to force those people to pay more for coverage, in order to
subsidize insurance for people with incomes near the poverty line,
and those with chronic or costly medical conditions.
But the laws’ supporters and enforcers don’t want you to know
that, because it would violate the President’s incessantly repeated
promise that nothing would change for the people that Obamacare
doesn’t directly help. If you shop for Obamacare-based coverage
without knowing if you qualify for subsidies, you might be
discouraged by the law’s steep costs.

I don't have any negative attitudes or feelings towards queens like you or arabs.

That isnt the point, the point is that the federal government wasn't responsible for the building of the local roads.

They are responsible though for making sure a transgender like you is able to go into the girls room because you think that you are a girl just because you dress like one and take it in the tookus.

Now you are mooching on your employees time.
