Healthcare.gov is so bad in Missouri that, according to KSHB TV in Kansas City, “navigators” are having to go old school and enroll people via paper.

Reporter Linda Shively reports that navigator Karima Baptiste says “she has not been able to help a single person enroll online because the site has not worked for her. She gets up every morning and tries. She gets error messages trying to show us her account.”

The carbon footprint for this fiasco is sure to be massive.

Watch KSHB’s report here or here.

And just wait for all that paperwork to be rejected by the providers.
If they had any brains, they should just call the 1-800 number of whaterver insurance provider, and go directly to the source.
All the Healthcare.gov site does is collect the user's information, then passes it along to big insurance companies. It's just a front end to a database lookup.
There's no real brains there - the IRS piece doesn't work, so there is no income verification.
If they really wanted to go old school, just put a big blackboard in the front of the room, and write down the 1-800 numbers of all the providers for your state. Print out a chart of the rates - really, they are just suggested rates, no one knows the actual rates until the insurance company runs the application.
Have someone available to sign up the really poor people for state Medicaid; that's a seperate system, and you don't need to go through the Healthcare.gov site to get there.
Here's the Florida site: http://floridamedicaidapplication.org
5 minutes with Google, and I could list all 57 state's sites.
Look, Karen Sebelius, I just completely fixed Healthcare.gov for you. You can thank me later.

So where is all of this paper going to end up? Or are we going to see something analogous to the pile of paper that is exceeding the weight limit of a floor in the VA?

Let's cut out the middleman and just put Obama's Magic Cure in the water supply. No web site required, no signup, no insurance, no doctors!

If you get sick, the IRS will come and impound your dog, your car, and your children.
