NBC News (!) profiles a web programmer today who says that the problems with Obamacare’s web portal, Healthcare.gov, aren’t just glitches. They’re way beyond glitches.

Reporter Tom Costello asks web programming expert Luke Chung, “When you see this as a software programmer, what does it say to you?”

Chung replies, “Amateur hour. It looks like it was created by someone who has never delivered commercial software before.” He adds, If they don’t change management, this project is doomed, because we have already seen what the existing management considers ready for shipping and it’s not.”

In the world outside the government, the extreme and embarrassing Obamacare failure would have already resulted in multiple firings. A company embroiled in this bad a product rollout would have seen its stock take a major hit and the board would be demanding an investigation.

But President Obama has “full confidence” in the Obamacare CEO, Kathleen Sebelius.

Intensive care? No, this turkey dies in the ER waiting room because it can't get admitted. Just like we will when it finally reaches it's full effect.

The most frightening phrase in the English language is still "We're from the government, and we're here to help."

The problem is is Team Obama won't allow anyone to fix it without maintaining the requirement that people fully register before they can see any insurance plan quotes, it might not be that easy a fix, even for the 'professionals'.

You think this is fun it's really gonna be fun to watch all the KosKids who are railing about not paying any fn' penalties when they get that letter from the bank telling them that the IRS has cleaned out their savings or attached their wages.

No problem - they'll just take the customary government approach and fling more money at the issue until it fixes itself.
