Obamacare: Healthcare.gov crashed during a test days before launching
It is clear that the Obama regime has released its talking points on the healthcare exchange website for we have heard the same line of defense from the left over and over again in the two short weeks the exchange has been open, they go like this: There are just a few glitches and this is due to the fact that so many people are interested in signing up for Obamacare. We did not anticipate the level of interest in the exchanges, but this is a good sign because it shows us how popular Obamacare is turning out to be.
In order for us to believe that the interest in the website is a good thing we have to ignore the reason why it is so popular in the first place and that is because the government mandated people sign up for insurance. People without insurance have no choice but to visit the website or face the wrath of the IRS. The government forced a nation of 300 million people to purchase healthcare and then underestimated how many people would visit the site? Not very likely if you ask me.
But let us take them at their word for the purpose of this post: If all this unexpected traffic is responsible for the website’s problems how it the Obama regime going to explain this news?
One month before the official launch of the website a test was conducted. 150 people tried to log on to the website at the same time and guess what happened? You guessed it, the site crashed. The group which conducted the test urged warned the Obama regime that the site was not ready and recommended that the launch be delayed.
Barack Obama knew the website was not ready for prime time so this could not possibly have been an unforeseen circumstance as portrayed by the Democrats who are scrambling amidst the embarrassment they are now feeling.
When big business told Barack Obama they would not be ready to comply with the employer mandate he granted them a one year reprieve from the law, yet when warned that the exchange website would not be ready the self-proclaimed middle class warrior was unwilling to give the American people the same reprieve for he was afraid it would hand the Republicans a victory and he obviously cared more about politics than the American people.
