    Three web site developers get their version of Obamacare web site up in three days-part time.

    So, you still think this is all that hard?  Or is it that the government has to stop trying to take over the medical sector?

    Re: Three web site developers get their version of Obamacare web site up in three days-part time.

    There are many problems in comparing wht these 3 guys did to what healthcare.gov has to do. 

    First of all, the government does not want you to see the price of a plan before you register and they have the data they need to know what your subsidy is. 

    So this 3guys site does not have to deal with gettin your profile information, including sensitive private in fromation like  you social security number, before you can shop and see prices.

    There are technical problems for sure. But the biggest reason healthcare.gov is a mess is the politicians and the regulators that define how they want he thing to "work".

    The end game here is to force single payer on us.

    As the post that the neo-cons reported because it was truthful...

    That website they say works really doesn't.

    The site is http://www.thehealthsherpa.com/

    I plugged in 3 different zip codes for Atlanta and each time they came back with this:

     

    We Didn't Recognize Your Zipcode

    In order for us to find plans for your zipcode, we need to match your zipcode the counties in it. We were unable to do this for 30301.

    We Didn't Recognize Your Zipcode

    In order for us to find plans for your zipcode, we need to match your zipcode the counties in it. We were unable to do this for 30302.

    We Didn't Recognize Your Zipcode

    In order for us to find plans for your zipcode, we need to match your zipcode the counties in it. We were unable to do this for 30304.

     

    Ya, it works great, as good as healthcare.gov

    [/QUOTE]

    Yet, what was done was done in three days.

    And, obviously works better than healthcare.gov, which cost a billion dollars and took three years and counting.

    the point is, that it isn't rocket science is three guys can get that far in three days, part time.

    I tried it for a Boston based Zip.... does it work?

    "We're Working On It

     

    Massachusetts has their own healthcare exchange, and hasn't shared that data with us yet. We are working around the clock to import their data from state records. "

    How can you work part time/ around the clock?

    Still, three days part time, shows it isn't as hard as Sebelius thinks it is.

    I can't believe all the progressives dumping on this with their bad zip codes, etc.

    Why not shift your focus to the failed government site, which didn't take three days, but THREE YEARS, and works about the same.

    That's the point.

    Breitbart? The site that fell for the faked ACORN video and then failed to tell you that the worker actually reported the would-be fraudsters to the policy?

    The site that relies on one of the biggest druggies ever to slam Obama?

    "

    Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx jumped on the Obama bandwagon three-plus years ago along with most of his celebrity pals. But, like "Saturday Night Live" alum Jon Lovitz, he's seen enough of the "cool" leader's impact on the country."

     

     

    Compelling stuff.

    [/QUOTE]
    So, that it is posted on Breitbart is the core of your rejection?  To quote you, your response is compelling stuff. eyeroll.

    Here it is elsewhere:

    http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2013/11/12/is-healthsherpa-better-obamacare-website/

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/11/tech/web/alternate-healthcare-site/

    I guess if you can't attack the point, you will attack the placement.

    Well, healthcare.gov worked for the 50,000 people who signed up too.

    Does that mean it works?

    [/QUOTE]

    Consideringthe expected number was 500,000, no, iti didn't work.

    But, even if it worked flawlessley, Obamacare is a train wreck, destroying our health care system.

    The Healthsherpa website doesn't work because it doesn't tie into backend systems of several entities (Homeland Security, the Social Security Administration, HHS, the Treasury Department and the Department of Justice) as Healthcare.gov has to, the site also doesn't interact with the exchanges set up by more than a dozen states, and it doesn't tie into the insurance providers anywhere.  

    So again the right wing demonstrates a fundamental ignorace of the problem they are trying to vigorously exploit by reducing the complexity and scale of the issue down to a a bite size morsel.  The idea that the issue is just the website is just ignorance of the facts.

    As opposed to the millions it didn't work for.  Most of the sign ups have been to expanded medicare.

    I have to agree that while the 3guys' effort may have been genuine, those that are trying to exploit it politically are WAY off. That website does nothing close to what they are trying to do with healthcare.gov

    The funny thing is that the people trying to exploit this are missing the forest for the trees. Half the reason the site doesn't work is because of the way the bureaucrats and politicians are asking the developers to do with the site architecture.

    The 3guys website gives you direct access to pricing and subsidies before you have to register. That is typical of most websites offering something for sale - shop first then register, create an account and buy.

    Not so with healthcare.gov!! You create the account first, give up all your private information, THEN you can shop, sort of.

    That is all because they want to limit political damage. THAT is what the exploiters should have focused on, not the stupid website. The problem is Obamacare and Obama, not the website.

    Yes the sherpa site a great tool to shop from.  Once you know what you want people have multiple ways to sign up.  The data shows it takes 30 minutes at best to get thru the questions and signup unless you lock up and do not pass go and must log in again.  Most shoppers looked on average 18 times as they compared plans. Government just doesn't serve the public like clients because they don't have to.

    Think of your RMV experience for new plates and apply it to government managed healthcare which is infinitely more complex.

    The IRS back end connection is a killer; its an identity theft opportunity waiting to happen and its more about being an enforcement tool as opposed to providing insurance.

    The project is one thing.  The law is another.

    Technology takes time and money...often much of both.  And in this situation, I believe both were purposely and incidentally constrained throughout the process.

    After all, one party in congress declared it their mission to tank, stymie and thwart the law at every turn, no matter what the cost or implication.  Nihilists can be like that...all not caring about consequences and such....
