the contractor admitted that See bus and O'bama didn't do their job correctly. It was the O'bama administration's responsibility to run the soft ware and check before launch. O'bama is the most incompetent president or person I have ever seen. It is his signature law--the only thing he has done in office, seems to me he focused like a laser on O'bama care, just like he did with the economy-zero zilch nothing.

nope it is O'bama and Seebus's responsibility. They didn't do their job and woo hoo--no O'bamacare. See it is simple, if you are paying a person for work, you better make damn sure they did it correctly. Someone like you would be a good candidate for a garage doing excessive car work.:) Put the blame where it belongs-I refer to them as O'bama and the liberals.

As usual Democrats "f" the aca they thought was so great, wonder why the Senate, Congress, Big Business don't have to have it. The suckers were the American people. Like Jay Leno says"it's easier to join Al Quida than his signature fiasco.

Continue the analogy - it is easier to get a gun in this country than sign on to ACA.

The website will be fixed and you should be ready for your next Grinch.

NO it is not. The government gives the contractor the way the program is to work with the data elements that they want added and how to program it. The Government is to prototype it. They are to input transactions in to the system and check for possible errors to see if it will reject them or if they post the correct data. The programmers only build the system as the government has requested and tells them. The Government had 2 years to clean up any problems. The contractor told them that this system is not going to work and two days before it was implemented it was tested and blew up. They had their hearing this morning on this.

That is NOT what said this morning the only part that was brought up about not being right was the fact that the Gov had the portion in the program that would allow all of our medical report be seen by the world. The data was not blocked and the contractor knew it.

No no it works: Are you in jail and didn’t know it?

Don’t worry. Obamacare will tell you.

That’s the “circumstance” for a commenter to a government website taking responses to the problems with the failing Healthcare.gov website, which has been unable to provide reasonable access for Americans.

“Website said my wife and I were ineligible due to current incarceration,” wrote Fred in an acknowledgement by the left-leaning ProPublica of the website problems.“We have never been arrested in our lives, both 63!!!!!!!!!!

Charles Ornstein, in the ProPublica report, documented some of the responses on the federal site collecting comments.

“The Obama administration has not always been transparent about Healthcare.gov : A case in point is how HHS has withheld the number of people who have been able to successfully enroll. But in this instance, the administration allowed comments to the blog post to be seen by all.”

Ornstein wrote that the feedback largely has been negative.

“While some comments root for the site’s failure, many are from people who’ve tried to use the site without success,” his report said.“Some pose specific questions; others voice general frustrations. Because their identities and contact information isn’t listed (for understandable reasons), there was no way to verify their stories.”

Besides the couple told by Healthcare.gov that they were in jail, Joanna noted that the system was telling her that her daughter was added twice. So she now lists two daughters with the same name and Social Security number, and no deleting was allowed.

Also, she added,“I choose that my husband is the father of our daughter and that my daughter is a dependant (sic) to me and my husband. What it actually shows though is that my daughter is a stepdaughter to her father and that my daughter is now both my husband and I’s parent (sic).”

Rhonda added that she could sign in, but was told her identity “has been compromised.”

Another, Francine, said she was told she could only submit one application per state, and now the system has her blocked.

See only signing up for O'bama care will give you a felony record for never committing a crime. ROTFLMAO--Just say NO to O'bama care.
