Healthcare.gov crashes just as Sebelius testifies 'the website never crashed'
 
Healthcare.gov crashes just as Sebelius testifies 'the website never crashed'

(NaturalNews) When you are an embattled Washington bureaucrat, it seems like the whole world is against you.

That's very likely how Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius felt this morning.

Hauled up to Capitol Hill to answer a myriad of questions about why, after spending years in development at a cost of several hundred million taxpayer dollars, did the federal government's Healthcare.gov website crash on launch, Sebelius said:

The website never crashed. It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability.

Hmmm. Well, we're used to just about everybody in the Obama administration lying to us, but this time it's actually comical. Because just minutes before Sebelius arrived to testify, guess what happened?

The site crashed. Yeah, you just can't make this stuff up.

It crashed, and then stayed crashed

As reported by Breitbart News:

Spot checks verified that the State of North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, and New Hampshire are all down - which likely means the entire federal site is down.

And a half-hour into Sebelius' testimony, the site remained down.

The embattled HHS secretary, who is having to take the heat for the failed site so her boss, Mr. "You Get To Keep Your Plan" President Obama, once more doesn't have to, was called to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday, "as the focus of the ObamaCare rollout debacle shifted from the faulty website to the fact that millions are losing the health insurance President Obama repeatedly, and over the course of two presidential elections, promised them they could keep," Breitbart reported.

The questions come amid reports earlier this week that the Obama administration was warned a month in advance that the site was not ready for launch.

Another report, from NBC News, said Obama, Sebelius and others knew from the outset of the debate over the "reform" law that would come to be called "Obamacare" that millions of Americans would not get to keep their current health insurance plans and that rates for many of those policyholders would increase.

The Liar in Chief and his minions are still lying

Obama and Sebelius, as well as White House spokesman Jay Carney, have all blamed the loss of policies on the insurance companies, citing a provision in Obamacare that says such plans would be "grandfathered" in - meaning, if someone had a plan before the law took effect, they could keep it.

Only, Sebelius' HHS has written rules specifying minimum levels of coverage each health insurance plan must contain, so any current policies that were supposed to be grandfathered in - but which now don't meet these minimum standards - have to be canceled.

So it's not the fault of the insurance companies - it's the fault of Sebelius' agency.

And Obama's.

Since HHS is an Executive Branch agency, he could have already picked up the phone and ordered the agency to change its coverage rules so current insurance plans indeed could be grandfathered in, as he promised they would be.

But he hasn't. And it doesn't look like he will, which figures.

So whose fault is it really?

Obama and Sebelius have lied to the American people since Obamacare was first introduced in Congress. Democrats lied to sell it, too.

Who are you going to believe this time, now that Obamacare is already failing to deliver "as promised?"

Could some opponents of the ACA send in some hackers to contribute the crash?

They don't need to. A test in late September with just 200 users made it crash.

Most incompetent pile of bumbling fools ever assembled are running this show.

Meanwhile……Carney says its functioning just not well.

I was listening to testimony on this yesterday, when they were talking about end to end security for the system. No surprise here, there is none.

They are not even encrypting the data being entered on the back end. The system is complete shit.

Just like McAfee said, this is a hackers wet dream.

Anybody wanna take a guess how many identity thefts are going to occur when the site is hacked? For clarification, its not "IF" the site is going to be hacked, it is "WHEN".

Pretty much like the clown in office. Although by pointing out the complete and total unacceptable behaviour by this administration will paint you and I as right wing nut jobs and radical who only dislike this administration because Obama is almost black~

Lol...low speed and unreliable. That damning comments right there. Government heads are clueless.

Cochise 10-31-2013 08:15 PM

Does it mean there was an outage, a service interruption, or the whole site went down and had to be resurrected?

There are so many moving parts here between the federal site and all the interfaces to state exchanges, it's hard to say who or what might have been the problem at that moment.

Seblojevich may have been making a misleading but technically true statement. She could say that the meaning of "is" is that the site has never completely blown up, it was just up and unusuable. It was turned on, but broken. Her statement is really only verifiably false if the entire thing is down, even if all you could do was get to the home page to see the Glitch Girl

But not the guys brought in to fix it. Red Hat/Oracle are on board.

The best web site reliability engineer that world has ever known is on the job. Credited with a lot of Googles tech success and he's filthy rich.

“Two of these key personnel are Michael Dickerson and Greg Gershman. Michael is a Site Reliability Engineer on leave from Google. He has expertise in diving into any layer of the tech stack, from the metal to the application code to the people that write it, in order to deliver some of the world's most reliable online services," Bataille wrote in a blog post.


“Michael is onsite working with QSSI, the general contractor, leveraging his experience stabilizing large, high throughput applications to improve HealthCare.gov's reliability and performance.”
