This is still true. We are technologically incapable of prioritization because our systems are so huge and archaic, running on old languages that few programmers know.
The endeavor that would be needed to make prioritization possible would take a lot of time and money, and no president or congress is ever going to spend the money to make that happen because a default is a stupid option that should not be seriously explored, anyway.
