Meanwhile At The Obamacare Website...

Tyler Durden's picture

Despite months to plan and an early morning failure today already, the Obamacare wesbite is down once again...


Of course the frequency of visitors is having some effect and the adminstration has once again extended the deadline for enrolment as long as participants are in line today. Perhaps, Obama should ask the HFTs how they cope with the volume?


As Bloomberg reports,, the federal website for Obamacare, faltered for the second time today as a record number of people tried to buy health insurance on the last day of enrollment for 2014.

Starting about midday New York time, users weren’t able to create new applications because of the number of people trying to use the website. Visitors to the health insurance exchange are being directed to a queuing system that asks them to provide an e-mail address so they can be contacted when traffic slows.


"There are a record number of people trying to access right now -- more than 100,000 people concurrently in the system as of noon,” Aaron Albright, a spokesman for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in an e-mail. “The application and enrollment tools are unavailable to new users at the moment. The tech team is working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. Users already in system remain able to complete enrollment.”


The agency pulled the website out of service earlier today after a software bug was discovered during the 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. regularly scheduled maintenance of the site.

We also remind those excited about a few hundred thousand enrollees on the last day that these are merely adding the healthcare to their 'Carts' and not actually paying for it yet... remember the average e-commerce shopping cart abandonment rate is 67%.

Plan is proceeding well, make ins cos cancel profitable policiies, keep website broken month after month preventing enrollments in new policies, starve ins cos into bankruptcy, bring in single payer. 

Then website magically starts working fine for single payer enrollment.

BTW, was that site ever in working condition?

Government is good at theft and violence and NOTHING ELSE.  Hidden under all the libtards' good-intentions is the fact that it is achieved (or more commonly not achieved) by means of theft, coercion, and violence.


Full disclosure:  RINOs can suck it too.  I had to say this becuase some asshole assuming Andy thinks that railing on the blue team means I like the red team by default.

The corrupt elected turds have exempted themselves from obamascare:


Senator  Bayh,

As a practicing  physician I have major concerns with the health  care bill before Congress. I actually have read  the bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the  government's proposed involvement in the  patient-physician relationship. The very idea  that the government will dictate and ration  patient care is dangerous and certainly not  helpful in designing a health care system that  works for all. Every physician I work with  agrees that we need to fix our health care  system, but the proposed bills currently making  their way through congress will be a disaster if  passed.

I ask you  respectfully and as a patriotic American to look  at the following troubling lines that I have  read in the bill. You cannot possibly believe  that these proposals are in the best interests  of the country and our fellow  citizens.

Page 22  of the HC Bill:  Mandates that the Govt  will audit books of all employers that  self-insure!!

Page 30 Sec 123  of HC bill:   THERE WILL BE A GOVT  COMMITTEE that decides what treatments/benefits  you get.

Page 29 lines 4-16 in  the HC bill: YOUR HEALTH CARE IS  RATIONED!!!

Page 42 of HC  Bill:  The Health Choices Commissioner  will choose your HC benefits for you. You have  no choice!

Page 50 Section 152  in HC bill: HC will be provided to ALL  non-US citizens, illegal or  otherwise.              

Page  58 HC Bill:  Govt will have real-time  access to individuals' finances & a  'National ID Health card' will be  issued! (Papers  please!)

Page  59 HC Bill lines 21-24:  Govt will have  direct access to your bank accounts for elective  funds transfer. (Time  for more cash and carry)

Page 65  Sec 164: Is a payoff subsidized plan for  retirees and their families in unions &  community organizations:  (ACORN).

Page 84 Sec 203 HC  bill: Govt mandates ALL benefit packages  for private HC plans in the  'Exchange.'

Page 85 Line  7 HC Bill:  Specifications of Benefit  Levels for Plans -- The Govt  will ration your health  care!

Page 91 Lines 4-7  HC Bill: Govt mandates linguistic  appropriate services.  (Translation:  illegal aliens.)

Page 95  HC Bill Lines 8-18: The Govt will use  groups (i.e. ACORN & Americorps to sign up  individuals for Govt HC  plan.

Page 85 Line 7 HC  Bill: Specifications of Benefit Levels  for Plans. (AARP members - your health care WILL  be rationed!)
Page 102  Lines 12-18 HC Bill:  Medicaid eligible  individuals will be automatically enrolled in  Medicaid.  (No choice.)

Page  12 4 lines 24-25 HC: No company can sue  GOVT on price fixing. No "judicial review"  against Govt monopoly.

Page 127  Lines 1-16 HC Bill: Doctors/ American  Medical Association - The Govt will tell YOU  what salary you can make.

Page  145 Line 15-17: An Employer MUST  auto-enroll employees into public option  plan. (NO choice!)

Page  126 Lines 22-25: Employers MUST pay for  HC for part-time employees ANDtheir  families.  (Employees shouldn't get excited  about this as employers will be forced to reduce  its work force, benefits, and wages/salaries to  cover such a huge  expense.)

Page 149 Lines  16-24: ANY Employer with payroll 401k  & above who does not provide public option  will pay 8% tax on all payroll!  (See the  last comment in  parenthesis.)
Page 150  Lines 9-13: A business with payroll  between $251K & $401K who doesn't provide  public option will pay 2-6% tax on all  payroll.

Page 167 Lines  18-23: ANY individual who doesn't have  acceptable HC according to Govt will be taxed  2.5% of income.

Page 170 Lines  1-3 HC Bill: Any NONRESIDENT Alien is  exempt from individual taxes.  (Americans will pay.) (Like  always)

Page  195 HC Bill: Officers & employees of  the GOVT HC Admin..  will have access  to ALL Americans' finances and  personal records. (I guess  so they can 'deduct' their  fees)

Page 203  Line 14-15 HC: "The tax imposed under  this section shall not be treated as tax."   (Yes, it really says  that!) ( a  'fee' instead)
Page 239  Line 14-24 HC Bill: Govt will reduce  physician services for Medicaid Seniors.   (Low-income and the poor are  affected.)

Page 241  Line 6-8 HC Bill: Doctors: It doesn't  matter what specialty you have trained yourself  in -- you will all be paid the same! (Just TRY  to tell me that's not  Socialism!)

Page 253 Line  10-18: The Govt sets the value of a  doctor's time, profession, judgment, etc.   (Literally-- the value of  humans.)

Page 265 Sec 1131:  The Govt mandates and controls productivity for  "private" HC industries.

Page  268 Sec 1141: The federal Govt regulates the  rental and purchase of power driven  wheelchairs.

Page 272 SEC.  1145: TREATMENT OF CERTAIN CANCER HOSPITALS -  Cancer patients - welcome to  rationing!

Page 280 Sec 1151:  The Govt will penalize hospitals for whatever  the Govt deems preventable  (

Page 298 Lines  9-11: Doctors: If you treat a patient during  initial admission that results in a re-admission  -- the Govt will penalize  you.

Page 317 L 13-20:  PROHIBITION on ownership/investment. (The Govt  tells doctors what and how much they can  own!)

Page 317-318 lines  21-25, 1-3: PROHIBITION on expansion.  (The  Govt is mandating that hospitals cannot  expand.)
Page 321  2-13: Hospitals have the opportunity to apply  for exception BUT community input is required.   (Can you say  ACORN?)

Page 335 L 16-25 Pg  336-339: The Govt mandates establishment of=2  outcome-based measures. (HC the way they want --  rationing.)
Page 341  Lines 3-9: The Govt has authority to disqualify  Medicare Advance Plans, HMOs, etc.   (Forcing people into the Govt  plan)

Page 354 Sec 1177: The  Govt will RESTRICT enrollment of 'special needs  people!'    Unbelievable!

Page  379 Sec 1191: The Govt creates more bureaucracy  via a "Tele-Health Advisory Committee."   (Can you say HC by  phone?)

Page 425 Lines 4-12:  The Govt mandates "Advance-Care Planning  Consult."  (Think senior citizens  end-of-life patients.)

Page  425 Lines 17-19: The Govt will instruct and  consult regarding living wills, durable powers  of attorney, etc.  (And  it's mandatory!)
Page 425  Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3: The Govt provides an  "approved" list of end-of-life resources;  guiding you in death. (Also called 'assisted  suicide.')(Sounds  like Soylent Green to  me.)

Page  427 Lines 15-24: The Govt mandates a program for  orders on "end-of-life."  (The Govt has a  say in how your life  ends!)

Page 429 Lines 1-9: An  "advanced-care planning consultant" will be used  frequently as a patient's health  deteriorates.

Page 429 Lines  10-12: An "advanced care consultation" may  include an ORDER for end-of-life plans..   (AN ORDER TO DIE FROM THE  GOVERNMENT?!?)

Page 429  Lines 13-25: The GOVT will specify which doctors  can write an end-of-life order..  (I  wouldn't want to stand before God after getting  paid for THAT job!)   

Page 430  Lines 11-15: The Govt will decide what level of  treatment you will have at end-of-life!   (Again -- no  choice!)

Page 469:  Community-Based Home Medical Services =  Non-Profit Organizations.  (Hello?   ACORN Medical Services  here!?!)

Page 489 Sec 1308:  The Govt will cover marriage and family therapy.   (Which means Govt will insert itself into  your marriage even.)

Page  494-498: Govt will cover Mental Health Services  including defining, creating, and rationing  those services.

Senator,  I guarantee that I personally will do everything  possible to inform patients and my fellow  physicians about the dangers of the proposed  bills you and your colleagues are  debating.

Furthermore,  if you vote for a bill that enforces socialized  medicine on the country and destroys the  doctor-patient relationship, I will  do everything in my power to  make sure you lose your job in the next  election.

Evan Bayh is the only blue team/red team politician I would have ever voted for. The Dems smeared him bigtime after he resigned. As it is, I either don't vote or write-in.

Wow 200k visitors killed the site. What is that 1% of the total that need to enroll?

For $1200 a month, almost double what was my mortgage payment, I expect a website that works.

James-Morrison's picture

$1200 per month could buy two BMWs, (with a loan of course).

I would expect much more than a low volume, pretty website.

At $1200 per month, that is more than I pay in federal and state taxes.

What a Clusterfuck.

"I was scared constantly, absolutely terrified that something would happen and what would I do. I didn't sleep really well for a long, long, long, long time," Doucet, a waitress and reform advocate, told Reuters in an interview arranged through Consumers Union, a public advocacy group that sees Obamacare as a benefit to consumers."

Yeah, right.  Really?  I can come up with pure bullshit better than that.

Let's do some maths here. 7 millions(do we even know that to be true?) divided by 314 millions equals... 2.229 percent.  Hey, MSM, stop trying to tell us that the ACA is a success.  Pull the fucking plug on this disaster already.

We all know that the US gov is the most evil and corrupt entity on the planet. They will take our money and let us die. Our deaths will be the only affordable part of this catastrophic law.

"President Obama promised a joint session of Congress in 2009 to spend $900 billion over ten years on his health care law: 'Now, add it all up, and the plan that I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over 10 years.' Adding up all the different spending provisions in the health care law, however, (including closing the Medicare 'donut hole,' implementation costs, and other spending) total gross spending over the FY 2010–19 period is about $1.4 trillion, based on CBO estimates," the Senate Budget Committee Republican staff explains. "And most of the major spending provisions in the law do not even take effect until 2014. Congressional Democrats delayed these provisions in order to show only six years of spending under the plan in the original 10-year budget window (from FY2010-19) used by CBO at the time the law was enacted. Therefore, the original estimate concealed the fact that most of the law’s spending only doesn’t even begin until four years into the 10-year window. A Senate Budget Committee analysis (based on CBO estimates and growth rates) finds that that total spending under the law will amount to at least $2.6 trillion over a true 10-year period (from FY2014–23)—not $900 billion, as President Obama originally promised."

Good old Lakecity.  I wonder how many folks actually know what your username means?  I know what it means.  I would be lakecity74.  But hey, I know you will enjoy this link as much as I do.  Quite a bit of ammo went here but we still have plenty more.  It's probably a good idea for the cops to keep that in mind.  Don't fuck with us and we won't fuck with them.  Pretty simple.  No one really wants to hurt anyone else but if need be....
