The Obamacare Website has been available now for more than two weeks. It has proven to be a colossal flop. People who registered early found that their registrations were canceled.
Many couldn't get on the website at all. The website has been shut down for periods of time such as one forty-two hour shutdown reported on TV.
If the administration can't get the website right, how are they going to get your health care right?
The President got on TV and gave a toll-free number to call, instead of the website. But when people called that number, they were referred back to the failed website.
It has been reported that when people did get a look at health care plans on the website, prices quoted there were significantly incorrect.
One lady said she was able to register and sign up for a plan, but it took her seven hours over a period of eleven days to accomplish that.
The government got itself involved in a somewhat smaller project about forty one years ago when it started Amtrak, the nation's passenger train service.
It's my understanding that in it's forty one year history, Amtrak has never had a profitable year. Thus, the government has had to keep putting money into it every year.
If the government can't run Amtrak profitably, how are they going to successfully run the much larger Obamacare?
I know something about software. I'm a retired Software (and Hardware) Engineer. I wrote some of the software used in the Hubble Space Telescope project, among other projects.
Apparently the government contractor for the Obamacare website software is a Canadian company. It was reported that they've used software developers that are not recognized software developers, but just recent college graduates.
Our nation's health care deserves better software developers than novices. And why weren't those developers vetted early on?
Was it really necessary to go to a Canadian software developer? Has the administration never heard of a software company near Seattle called Microsoft, whose Windows operating system is used in the majority of desktop and laptop computers, and on tablet computers and smart phones?
Another American software giant is Oracle in the Silicon Valley area of California.
Dozens of other American software companies are also in Silicon Valley, and we would have been providing jobs for Americans, instead of foreign nationals.
In defense of the software developers, it should be mentioned that the goalposts kept being moved, in other words, the specifications for the software kept being changed.
Yes, it is rather a challenge to write software when the specs for it keep being changed.
Obamacare, of course, is actually unconstitutional, as I have reported in my article, "Why Obamacare is Unconstitutional," and my other article, "Tour Cancellation."
Someone might wish to point out that the Supreme Court has ruled it Constitutional. Yes, by a very narrow vote, and I believe there was an argument they needed to hear, but didn't hear.
Obamacare violates one's Constitutional right to Freedom of Religion for those who believe in getting their healing from God, as in Romans 8:2, 1 Pet 2:24, Gal 3:13, Ex 15:26, Psalm 103, and other scriptures from the Bible, and as taught by Kenneth E. Hagin, Charles Capps, Norvel Hayes, Dr. Lester Sumrall, Frederick Hoehn, and many others.

It is unfortunate that the Republicans indulged in brinksmanship with the government shut-down, and debt ceiling crisis, but they were right that Obamacare is not good for the nation.
