    In fact, since these systems are of direct benefit to the insurance companies they had every incentive to aid the Feds in the process.
    I agree! But they didn't do that. Which is my point.

    While the Obama administration called all-hands-on-deck, the insurance industry did not. Instead, they took your attitude: that it was the federal government's responsibility to negotiate the vagaries and inconsistencies of each company's proprietary rats' nest.

    In other words, they twiddled their thumbs.

      What should they have done?

      Written the code themselves?

      The Insurance companies are required to follow the Fed's lead on this.

      It's not like building a patio the backyard where you can just go out and do the work.  The ACA software/website uses proprietary processes and all the insurance companies can do is make their information available for the Fed'l authorities to use.

      They have fully cooperated.
