    Read the link I included above. Traffic is not the main problem at healthcare.gov despite being used as a main excuse. Bad design is the problem.  Oh and btw, AccessTN preceded the ACA by several years.

      Horrible. And I don't see it getting any better. I worked for HP for 25 years. I can live with a few glitches but the author was right. The whole system seems bush league.

      Nobody tested the damn thing. I hope they've called in some experts. The software is a joke.

        dislike of some questions (which are thorough about relationships for obvious reasons - defaulting and making a mistake would be bad) and their feeling besmirched by an overloaded system that was either only not synching with backend scripts due to load or some potential front-end bugs that were caused by either incomplete page loading or actual coding errors.

        This should hopefully settle down through the month, as there's a huge political press being placed on these complex transactional systems to handle even the current levels of apparently unexpected load.
