The flood of bad Obamacare news is overwhelming, so it's time to revamp this blog...

When I started this blog about a month ago, my intent was to chronicle as many tales of the Obamacare disaster as possible, but now, thankfully, the ongoing and increasing flood of bad news about Obamacare is overwhelming my ability to keep this blog updated and timely, and in that regard it's great news!

I don't plan on letting this blog fade away, but I'm going to step back and see where the Obamacare train wreck is heading over the next several weeks and adjust things accordingly. In the meantime, keep your eyes and ears open and watch your back.

Obamacare website for Spanish speakers has problems, too

Anyone surprised, given the fiasco? adds "apply by phone" button to front page

From the article:

The Hill notes that in addition to the phone prompt the updated site offers users the ability to preview plans and calculate eligibility online.

So the website, which is telling people to apply by phone because of ongoing website problems, also gives people the option to calculate their benefits online? Um, sure. Let me know how that works for you...

Reminder: The real problem with ObamaCare isn’t glitchy websites

The real problem with Obamacare is Obamacare:

Commentary: Obamacare failing ahead of schedule

From The New York Times. Ouch.

Why Obama should be freaked out over Obamacare

From the article:

Nobody expects the chief executive to be reviewing computer code or hosting East Room "hackathons." But this falls on him. The CEO of a corporation or country is uniquely responsible for making sure the team is on task, and he or she is ultimately responsible if it's not. In Obama's case, did he demand thorough updates on the progress of the site? If so, did he ask the right questions? Did he put the right people on the job in the first place?

Given the horrid first days of Obamacare, the answer to at least one of those questions must be "no."
