Despite reports in the media about the successfully busy ObamaCare website last week the reality is there were the numerous glitches and delays that forced hoards of applications to give up.
The HHS web applications were obviously poorly designed and were just as obviously never load tested. They will likely not be operational for weeks if not months.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which oversaw development of the site, declined to make any of its IT experts available for interviews. CGI Group Inc, the Canadian contractor that built HealthCare.gov, is "declining to comment at this time," said spokeswoman Linda Odorisio.
HHS blocking access to to its IT experts speaks volumes.
Five outside technology experts interviewed by Reuters, however, say they believe flaws in system architecture, not traffic alone, contributed to the problems.
That means just bringing more servers online, as officials say they are doing, will not fix the site.
Also, the report says that it was a Canadian contractor that built HealthCare.gov.
Why did HHS use a Canadian contractor? Also why is the Canadian contractor declining to comment on their buggy website paid for by American taxpayers?
Canadian contractor? Why did HHS choose a foreign contractor?
What happened to buy American first?
The government wants to manage our health care but can’t even provide a workable website for enrollment.
