LOL at the last paragraph.



How did the Obama administration allow HealthCare.gov launch when it was so obviously broken? Wasn't there a test-run for senior White House officials to see what the final product looked like?

The answer, according to a report in today's Wall Street Journal, is yes, except that the product demo White House officials saw over the summer wasn't actually a working product. It was a mock-up of the front-end interface with no functional back-end behind it.

When CMS presented HealthCare.gov to White House officials over the summer, they displayed a demonstration version of the website composed of screen-shots of the real exchange and overlaid with interactive features.

That version re-created the user interface, but didn't include the underlying mechanics—such as identity verification and eligibility determinations—that have foiled the site's launch. Displaying such versions for demonstration purposes is common in the computer industry. But it left senior officials unaware of the more complicated and ultimately troubled workings of the exchange.

These sorts of mock-ups are common enough in the software industry. What's not common is mistaking them for a working product. It's the equivalent of an auto executive being shown a new car design without a working engine inside.

Aint nobody got time fo dat.

They could give two shits if any of that shit works.

Obamas pals got 600 million dollars. He is currently sticking it to anyone with a job, and 40% of the nation still loves his commie ass.

This is still 100% win for Hussein

From conception, this entire thing was a huge joke.

Thankfully, hillarycare will save us.

Your probably right! This is just the stepping stone Hildabeast needs to come in and save the day! She'll campaign on a single payer platform and promise "....the average family will save $2500 per year" and "You can keep your doctor"

It's called a pnambc. "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain."

The 2 best stories I know of were when MS tried to fake videotape testimony during their anti-trust trial. They were demonstrating how Internet Explorer couldn't possibly removed from MS Windows - look, see how there's no functionality left? But the prosecution noted gaps in the video time log. Turns out MS was editing out parts of the video where they messed with other settings to get Windows to crash.

The other one is the original MS foray into video. Bill Gates was shown a a piece of demonstration software that played video great, and was so impressed with the project manager he put her in charge of a huge MS project. Except the video in the demonstration wasn't actually processed via the software - it was a videotape image spliced in somehow.

The project she was given responsibility for? Microsoft Bob.

Her name? I forget what it was then, but now it is Melinda Gates. Or Mrs. Bill Gates on formal invitations.
