It's obvious what she's been doing.  She's been collecting a pay check.

I realize that the Federal Insurance Exchange is a big website with lots of intricacies.  But look at Google, Microsoft, and Amazon.  They never had the issues that this site did and there should be enough people out there with experience to make it work.

If this wasnt just political theater meant as a soothing balm for teabagger butthurt I would say this is a good thing. A serious conversation about what went wrong and what is being done about it would be constructive. This is witch hunt and nothing good will come of it.

Eric Holder has to be happy the derpers will be occupied with someone else for a while.
 
2013-10-20 06:22:40 PM
Site wonky, contractors probably told them it was comming along and would be ready for rollout(either they thought they had it under control or lied, there Does need to be an audit), and were believed.

Considering how important this was to the administration, it's the simplest and most human explanation
 
2013-10-20 06:40:12 PM
The bugs will get worked out. Christ, the biggest game companies crash their servers on launch days, not sure why the supposedly incompetent federal government is expected to do better than the almighty free market.

Ohhh, right. BECAUSE OBAMA.

Republicans holding hearings about everything Obamacare related? No way.


Compounding the problem is the administration's refusal to delay the law's unfair individual mandate, therefore subjecting Americans to a requirement to purchase insurance despite the exchanges' numerous problems, including unaffordable health insurance premiums and significant security risks. (.pdf)


Going to be tons of new ground covered at these hearings, let me tell you what.
 
2013-10-20 06:46:36 PM
So now the Teatards are calling for investigations into the glitchy ACA roll out "scandal" and they want Sebelius' head on a platter by dawn bought to them by a freshly washed slave girl?

How about no?

Does "no" work for you guys?

Gawd, they're obvious.

Although the contractor who is responsible for healthcare.gov did in fact donate to the Obama election campaign, they donated *more* to Darrel Issa.

So there's that.

Waterboarding Christians while reading them passages from the Quran while Al Gore and Michael Moore gay married George Soros to a turtle saved by the EPA.

Can the Dems start yelling BENGAZHI!!! just to throw a distraction out there for a week or so?

Crap happens with any major launch

He voted for default and economic chaos. Someone needs to rub his smug face in this fact EVERY SINGLE TIME he comes up for office, is interviewed by the media, and whenever he speaks at Florida functions. He's a part of a rebel alliance and a traitor. TAKE HIM AWAY.

ThunderPelvis: Christ, the biggest game companies crash their servers on launch days


When Sim City's launch failed so badly that people couldn't play the game they bought for a couple of weeks it was a publicity disaster for EA, one of the factors that lead to them getting voted "worst company in America" in a Consumerist poll.

Pointing out that the Government bungled the Obamacare rollout is a valid criticism. It's freaking rare to see a valid criticism from the modern GOP, but you know the saying about stopped clocks.

yeah it is valid, but not to "lets hold hearings" valid.

But since this is the modern GOP, they were making the criticism while preventing the government from paying anyone to fix it.

Medicare Part D didn't exactly have a problem-free rollout, either, iirc.

if no one joins because they aren't interested or it isn't implemented well, I'd imagine that would lend credence to their attacks.

They didn't have everybody try to sign up all on the same day, and they also have much bigger budgets for their web sites. The "failure" with Obamacare is that so many people want/need it. It's like claiming the latest iPhone is a failure if the stores run out of them in the first week of sales.

No, that's not what I mean. If the GOP would have claimed that folks would not join because the website was not implemented well, the Republicans could have scored. But that was never their argument. The Republicans claimed the Affordable Care Act killed jobs and was Socialism.

See? They were stupid.

You don't appear to realize that software development is not a well understood science or even has a standard engineering approach. In fact,

http://mitpress.mit.edu/books/software-development-failures
It has been estimated that one-third of software development projects fail or are abandoned outright because of cost overruns, delays, and reduced functionality. Some consider this an acceptable risk-that it is simply the cost of doing business.

Healthcare.gov doesn't qualify as an unfixable failure. There are thousands of true disasters.
http://www.pcworld.com/article/246647/10_biggest_erp_software_failur es _of_2011.html
 UK government scraps the £12 billion National program for IT in the NHS
In September, U.K. officials pulled the plug on what is considered to be the largest public IT project of all time, an attempt to provide electronic health records for all of the country's citizens.
The sprawling effort was begun in 2002 but failed to produce a workable system, despite massive spending outlays that have been estimated at about £12 billion (US$18.7 billion).
