    From the NY Times:


    The biggest contractor, CGI Federal, was awarded its $94 million contract in December 2011. But the government was so slow in issuing specifications that the firm did not start writing software code until this spring, according to people familiar with the process.

    As late as the last week of September, officials were still changing features of the Web site, HealthCare.gov, and debating whether consumers should be required to register and create password-protected accounts before they could shop for health plans.


    Software designed by government committee!

    Oh, I missed this, has Obamacare been a complete failure? I have been so busy watching the teabagging republicans fuck up the government and screw themselves out of an other election cycle, I guess I was too busy to notice. That, and like a majority of Americans, I have insurance.

    Yeah, poor President Obama, nothing he could do. Poor Harry Reid, nothing he could do. They're oh so powerless to do anything when the House has sent over a multitude of bills to fund the government.

    Oh, and congrats on having insurance. I hope it meets all the Federal government requirements, but doesn't have "too many" goodies in there, lest you have to pay a "tax" as a penalty for purchasing a plan with the features YOU wanted (as opposed to the features that the Federal government wants you to have.
