Thread: ACA Running Thread

  1. #381
    The Obamacare websites are crashing all over the country. LOL. Surprise. The Rs should have just let this thing ride. It is going to be a total disaster on its own. They should have sent a clear CR with ONE admendment. Rename the ACA "The Barack Obama Health Care Act." Let it be tied to him forever.

    The fact the websites are crashing should scare the shit of Republicans. It means many times more people are interested in getting coverage than projected. More people are going to the sites than they can handle.

    They've got like what, 6 months to get the kinks worked out and people signed up.

    You have to hate the ideals of the ACA to rejoice in any struggles to implement it.

    A website with a lot of anticipated users crashes in the first day?

    No way.

    This is all about hating Obama.

    No rational person expected the rollout not to have lots of problems. Anything this big will have problems at the beginning. It's how business works.

    Uh, that's actually not acceptable. In software development, if you know you are going to have massive numbers of concurrent users you design for it. You don't just throw up your hands and say "this was to be expected." This is the government we are talking about. They should have over-engineered the shit out of this thing.

    Acceptable? No. Expected? Yes. Something that only happens to the government? No. A sign of the apocalypse? Definitely not.

    It is a massive failure to have your software fail on "go live" day. As someone who lives and breathes large scale software development and deployment, this is the nightmare scenario for any software developer.

    just tried to create an account on the NC exchange. On the second page you have to create security questions. The drop down menus that I guess are supposed to contain the security questions ("what is your mother's maiden name?") are broken so right now you can't create an account.

    No biggie. The answer is always [name redacted].

    If today was a go live day for a private company featuring their online service they would probably go bankrupt. No one would trust the product. Imagine an online financial devices company opening their business nationwide with this many issues. No one would give it a second chance.

    ... therefore, expanded health care is a failure

    Exactly when has any company been in this position?

    how many times have internet companies gone down and not immediately gone BK?

    The point that you appear to be missing is that the concerns over this going live on October 1st were very real, and maybe...just maybe...there is a legit reason to delay implementation until things are ready.
