    Slamming the TPR’s and the lousy set up for PPACA. Nicely done with a two edged sword.

    4th-hand rumors say that HealthCare.gov has been subjected to the most massive DDOS attack in history, but that the Obama Administration doesn’t want to admit to it, partly for fear of acknowledging it and partly for fear of acknowledging that they didn’t see IT coming, either. Hey, if you can’t anticipate an attack by your own citizens, what does that say about your intel on al-Qaeda, Iran, Korea, etc.?

    Possibly. But that implies a government worker has more smarts then I am willing to attribute.

    @TheSkulker

    A ‘government worker’ is just a Joe (or Jill) in an admittedly large organization.

    In ANY large organization/bureacracy, (private or public-sector makes no diff), the imperatives are: 1.) Increase your budget or staff; 2.) DON’T make waves. Your co-workers are up to their collective upper-lips in S4 enough of the time as it is. 3.) An eager-beaver creates a hump in the production line, and makes more work for everybody else, also not appreciated.

    The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (but it may be Tweeted.) The NSA will let us know someday.

    Only problem is that the ACA phone lines worked fine. And now the websites are working.

    Not one of you bothered to mention that obama has now done what the Republicans were asking for to start with. If he had agreed to it then there would have been no shutdown. The only difference is that the Republicans were trying to do it legally and obama has done it illegally. The president does not have the authority to change or delay laws. You intellectually dishonest liberals would be calling for impeachment if Bush had done half the things obama has done.

    “….not— sorry for typo.”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    No need to apologize — we all do it occasionally.
    The only reason your spell checker didn’t catch it is that ‘jot’ is a word, too.

    Actually, the Republicans did engage in calculated sabotage of the ACA, from the crafting the bill all the way to starving the HHS of funds to build a functioning the website to ensure a roll-out failure. They also intimidated sponsors, such as the NFL, to deter them from positive advertising of the ACA and purposely overburdened the local hospitals and non-profits with unneeded queries to prevent them from helping consumers navigate the new system to the point that many returned their federal grants and gave up, which was the sole intent of the queries in the first place. In red states, such as mine, the system was further sabotaged by the refusal to set up exchanges, providing absolutely no information on how to enroll through the federal exchanges and placing undue restrictions on the navigators to prevent them from helping consumers enroll in the ACA, period. Now, the Republicans have the unmitigated gall to blame the Obama administration for the problems of the ACA rollout. Hypocrisy doesn’t even begin to describe their actions.
