Obamacare Website Back-End Not Even Done


Oh….my…..God!  According to Henry Chao, deputy chief information officer for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, up to 40 percent of the technology needed to run the new Obamacare health insurance marketplace has not yet been built and will not be ready when insurance companies start sending in bills when coverage begins January 1.  So let me get this straight.  They started this thing without proving it can work…and it can’t.  And now they openly admit that 40% of the back-end technology is missing.  Are you kidding me?  And when Chao says 40% is he severely underestimating the real amount so save face?  I bet yes.  This is bad.  Real bad.  I still have not been able to get on the Healthcare.gov site.  It says I am locked up in verification purgatory.  And now they tell me that even when I do get something it could break down in January.  Where is a puke bucket?  I am going to get sick.

    Obama is not a philanderer like some Presidents we’ve had, and he’s not a blatant criminal (as far as we know so far) like one who famously asserted he was not a crook, and he’s not a blithering idiot, like the one who was MIA for both the National Guard and the 9/11 attacks, but I think that this is shaping up to be his very own Monica situation, for which he’ll be remembered long after most of what he’s done has been forgotten.

      Lance, each of those presidents cited – each who represented a sizable chunk of the populace – shared one certain attribute: they ALL believe(d) in the goodness of big government. That is the flaw and rot at the core of any government-delivered health care.
