cont... "In the first detailed account of what happened, officials of four contractors involved in the website creation described a convoluted system of multiple companies operating separately under the oversight of CMS, a part of the Department of Health and Human Services. Each said their individual components generally performed as planned after internal testing, but all conceded that CMS failed to conduct sufficient "end-to-end" testing of the entire system before the launch."

"but all conceded that CMS failed"

ALL = IT Contractors

CMS = Govt Admin

Oldman, Maybe you were watching reruns of Court TV!

From CNN, "Contractors blame government for Obamacare website woes"

By Tom Cohen, CNN

Washington (CNN) -- It was the government's fault, contractors on the problem-plagued website for President Barack Obama's signature health care reforms told a congressional hearing on Thursday. In more than four hours of testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, officials of companies hired to create the HealthCare.gov website cited a lack of testing on the full system and last-minute changes by the federal agency overseeing the online enrollment system."

"You know the funniest thing about the Obamacare site glitches? How they didn't cost the American taxpayers 24 billion dollars."

From Politifact, "If you look at the total debt, the average daily increase is about $4.3 billion".

So the shutdown saved us about $73 billion! After all, we were told the "entire" govt was shutdown! Right?

No sense of humor?

I find this hilarious;

Jon Stewart is confident that Democrats could gain an overwhelming political advantage over Republicans -- if only they could accomplish a "mildly competent implementation" of the health care law they fought to pass.

On Monday's "Daily Show" Stewart was perplexed by the technical issues plaguing the Obamacare web portal, from delays and time outs to a broken calculator.

"So the first step doesn't work," Stewart said after playing a clip of a news report explaining users' issues logging on to the website, joking "I have a feeling after that it's smooth sailing."

“The whole point of websites is to design them so that it is nearly impossible to not sign up for something,”

Unfortunately, $400 million of taxpayer money for a website that doesn't work (after 3 years to prep) is not such a joke!

"Why are Republicans so opposed to anything that makes them think? "

Says the poster who said "Just the way the GOP wants it. This is a stark reminder to vote Democratic. Your life might just depend on it. Republicans hate the working man."

Lots of "thinking" there!

Now that is humorous!!!!

Why are Republicans so opposed to anything that makes them think? They can't even grasp the simplest concepts and have no sense of humor. Astounding.

@bushcrimefamily,

"Ted Cruz: 'The Dream of Keeping Poor People from Seeing a Doctor Must Never Die'"

eh, you do know that the "Borowitz Report" is satire don't you??

And you know what satire means? Right?

I understand though! It's easy to confuse liberal talking points with satire!

"3. Do the "I applied for health care insurance" interpretive dance.* *this step is optional"

ROFL

Goose,

Why don't you just tell us to go read the DailyKos everyday?

You and the other sycophants on here constantly rant about "extreme" right wing news sources then you plagerize the most liberal of sources on a routine basis. At least give those hard working folks at DailyKos and HuffPo the courtesy of acknowledging their efforts!

@goose,

"We are confident that consumers will be able to apply and enroll, certainly by Dec. 15"

They told you it would be up and running by October 1st!! They only had 3 1/2 years!!!

I guess that lie can get behind, you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor, it will reduce the debt, it will reduce costs $2500/yr, it will create jobs (okay at the IRS)!

At some point you have to feel sorry for the stooges who blindly regurgitate their assigned talking points.

From CNN, "(CNN) -- President Barack Obama didn't know of problems with the Affordable Care Act's website -- despite insurance companies' complaints and the site's crashing during a test run -- until after its now well-documented abysmal launch, the nation's health chief told CNN on Tuesday."

Really??? How did he find out? Reading about it in the paper like all the other scandals???

Absolutely pathetic!!

caltransplant "misleading headlines...... Benghazi, IRS, NSA, computer clitches, all this stuff is unimportant, ....It's a wonder that Washington can accomplich anything ...useless chatter, which is designed to do nothing more than discredit the administration."

Don't worry calplant, "Sargent Schultz" doesn't need any help in discrediting his administration.

As for the Republican alternatives, try reading some of the conservative writings, there are many proposals, Schultz's boy Harry has been given his marching orders not to let the Senate stray from the Progressive agenda.

Goosey - Always the good Progressive; repeat the lie and hope that others as gullible as you will fall in lock-step behind "I know nothing" Obama, chanting the all to familiar "make no mistake, without a doubt, we will get to the bottom of this, no one is more unhappy about it than me".

Obama has made a name for himself and it is "Sargent Schultz".
