It’s reassuring to know that if the ObamaCare website “HealthCare.gov” has no volume, it works! This is why you do not want Government Bureaucrats controlling 1/6th of the U.S. Economy.
The government website launched this week to sell health insurance was overwhelmed by up to five times as many users as it was designed to handle, President Obama’s top technology adviser said Saturday in an exclusive interview with USA TODAY.
U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park said the government expected HealthCare.gov to draw 50,000 to 60,000 simultaneous users, but instead it has drawn as many as 250,000 at a time since it launched Oct. 1.
Park’s comments are the administration’s most detailed explanation for the glitches that have frustrated millions of consumers who have tried to enter the site or complete applications for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
“These bugs were functions of volume,” Park said. “Take away the volume and it works.”
The administration built the site’s capacity based partly on the all-time high of 30,000 simultaneous users for Medicare.gov, an existing site where senior citizens can buy or renew prescription-drug plans under Medicare Part D, Park said.

And they don’t all reach retirement age at the same time! Yet, Democrats believe we want Government Bureaucrats involved in the Health Care decisions of Americans.
