Obamacare tidbits

October 21, 2013

Ariane_5_self-destructionEzra Klein summarizes the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare’s website for purchasing insurance on the federal exchange. My intuition is that this is the kind of IT cluster-f**k that can’t be fixed in short order. One measure of the administration’s bungling on this: they made a late and mistaken decision to require people to register before they shop. (Photo left shows Ariane 5, whose destruction was due to erroneous conversion between 64-bit and 16-bit arithmetic.)

Rick Perry hates Obamacare. Yet thinks it is a better source of insurance for high-risk Texans than what Texas provided. So he is eliminating the state high-risk pool. Now, if only the exchanges worked…

Some people will do worse under Obamacare. Sean Hannity is just incapable of finding them, giving voice instead to those whose complaints are the more imaginary than real.
