By JAVIER MANJARRESWhen the Democratic National Committiee (DNC) Chairmwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, comes out and openly admits that the Obamacare “roll out” was all but disastrous, you know the problem with the implementation of the President’s healthcare law is worse than what is being reported.
Clearly, the roll out of the website and people’s ease of getting on to the website, has been a bit of a struggle, and that needs to be fixed, they are working on that aggressively.
I think the good news is that the website was designed for fewer people that actually logged on, we had exponential interest- the website had some challenges handling that through their servers. -Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)
Wasserman Schultz was asked why after three years of planning, these ‘glitches’ were not foreseeable?
I don’t think we should be making excuse, there should have been a better roll and better design
But considering that most Americans have some kind of mobile device attached to their hips, and are doing most, if not all of their personal everyday business via the web, why was the Obamacare website designed to accommadate “fewer people that actually logged in?”
Here is what Allahpundit over at HotAir wrote the other day about this very issue?
He pointed out that the exchange was built to accommodate 50,000 to 60,000 visitors at a time — fewer than half as many as the enrollment site for the Medicare drug benefit could handle. The number of older Americans eligible for the drug benefit was far greater than the group of uninsured people who will be allowed to buy insurance through the health exchange, Brailer said, but many elderly patients didn’t have home computers at the time, compared with the near-universal access to the Web that exists across the United States today. For a new program that’s had as much advertising as the Affordable Care Act, building a Web site for just 60,000 people at a time “is weird. The math just doesn’t add up,” he said-Hot Air
