Oh, it is only a glitch...

Oh, it is only a glitch and it was Bush's fault anyway. Move on, there is nothing to see here (except the truth).

Pathetic.

Pathetic.

Of all the (private sector) places that I've worked in/for in almost 19 years now, I've never seen a major, owned issue slipping its way into a production system that wasn't expected to be fixed or worked around for the end users within two or three hours, tops.

Months after the go live, they can't even have the dumb thing running. STILL.

Heck, maybe they just need another $600 million to suck on for 3 years? Go figure!

But, hey, with bureaucrats as stakeholders

But, hey, with bureaucrats as stakeholders, you just never know - that might also very well be faked to disguise as long as possible their utter failure - 6 million official enrollees to date, yay!

Woa. In a country of 315+ million total inhabitants, I guess that's huge?!

Can someone tell me if DENTAL insurance is required

under Obamacare. BCBS asked on its website about it but I'm not sure if it's actual required. My web searches aren't productive.

Sounds like a good excuse

...to extend the deadline.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
