ekdikeo4: People fail to understand the difficulty involved with providing enough server capacity for something like that. Especially considering that within a week or two, you won't need half or more of the capacity that you would've liked to have had at launch. So, although it looks kind of bad at start, just like with GTA Online, traffic will eventually level out, and things will be "normal".
SauronWasFramed: We have to buy insurance by 12/15 or else. Else what? Whatif you don't pay the fine?
Fubini: what happens if everyone in the city flushes their toilet at once?
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: someonelse: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Silverstaff: TuteTibiImperes: If anything this just shows how wildly popular the ACA is, so while it's inconvenient, it's a good sign.The Republican Talking Point is that entire storm of traffic to the exchanges was almost entirely the media and Congressional offices, because everyday people are rejecting them en-masse.Then again, these are the same people who thought Unskewed Polls were the "real" way that the 2012 election would turn out, that global warming is "junk science", and that the Iraqi people would cheer us and celebrate us as liberators and the post-war occupation would be quick and easy. They aren't known for the best working relationship with facts.So... How is a minimum wage worker supposed to afford these private health plans?You're saying the subsidy for 100-400% of the poverty level isn't enough?I'm not saying anything. I'm asking a question which so far no one has been able to answer.
rev. dave: Explain what is load testing and why did no one bother to do any serious load testing.
LordOfThePings: MBooda: There's an obvious way to handle increased volume.[4.bp.blogspot.com image 400x300]Also works for anti-gubbmint whining.
Fubini: stirfrybry: So you force people to join by threat of penalty, and this you call interest.The penalty this year is miniscule. Given that, the current load really is a gauge of interest.
TuteTibiImperes: If anything this just shows how wildly popular the ACA is, so while it's inconvenient, it's a good sign.
Riche: Because of this Obamacare is clearly a complete failure and should be immediately repealed.
vpb: PainInTheASP: Nonsense. We need to scrap the whole thing and start over. Preferably with a solution that involves poorhouses and debtor's prison. Because soshulism.So, stealing the tax money to pay for these free houses and prison for the poor from the job creators is what you want?That sounds like facislamic socialism.
