    All the clever engineering in the world isn’t going to make this million ton brick fly.

    Another thing these geniuses didn’t take in to account is how do you test a rules based engine if all of the rules haven’t been established?

    is it possible that data corrupted during this phase of sign-up will persist with a life of its own and affect claims made decades from now as the hapless insured attempts for years to get the misinformation corrected? On the bright side the corrupt data may be more beneficial to some insured than the correct answers.

    Here’s hoping the Federal IT team is still fighting cyber-wars, because there is NO Federal IT team assigned to the PPACA exchange sign-up: every news report NOT cited by ViaMeadia says the PPACA portal, outsourced to Canada, is a complete failure.
    Why would anyone trust such a bad system with any personal data, which will only be used against the suckers who use it, assuming it can be fixed.
    The USA invented the computer, yet we outsource this to Canada? (no disrespect to Canada, at least it has a chance).
    Does the PACCA portal really need Facebook plug-ins?

    I’m shocked, shocked to learn that the this monstrosity is falling flat on its face.

  • I think they’ll eventually get the technical aspects ironed out, but that just means many people will more easily be able to find heath insurance at a price that is higher than what they’ve rejected in the past.
