Totally agree. I really don't like Obamacare, but these "glitches" come with even the best of systems. Like you said, there are just too many
variables. Now I wouldn't be surprised if it was rushed to release, but I doubt these problems are intentional.
Rushed to release ????
They've been working on this for years
And what other 'best systems' have had these 'glitches' ????
They've been working on the idea
for years, but I have a feeling the actual implementation
didn't get as much attention as it needed.
The website for example...who knows how long they spent working on it? They probably hired some dude a couple weeks ago and said "Make a site!", and
then ended up surprised when it didn't work perfectly. For something this huge, I doubt they were properly organized.
I suppose "best systems" wasn't a term I intended to have any real meaning. I was just referring to other situations that are organized, and have
decent quality assurance, but still aren't perfect.
Look at GTA V. This is a video game for consoles, so they don't have to worry about adapting for varying PC hardware. Everything was built in the
game under KNOWN conditions that are completely controlled and unchanging (minus player interaction). They spent years on this too. It's just a game,
and a much less ambiguous task than defining a health care plan. They had hundreds if not thousands of people working on this project, and the final
product went through an established and rigorous QA process.
Still, at release, one glaring bug among many was that you couldn't park a car in your garage or it would disappear. The game is called GRAND THEFT
AUTO, and the one thing that doesn't work is STEALING CARS. This has yet to be fixed too.
Or, look at nuclear power plants and their various QA departments. Half the rules exist because of things that broke or screwed up in the past. These
policy makers are some of the top minds in the world (usually VERY experience engineers) and yet, in retrospect, some of the things they overlooked
seem pretty simple. 20/20 hindsight I guess.
I don't like Obamacare. I won't sign up for it. I'm not defending it in any way. I'm just saying that these glitches shouldn't come as a surprise
and that they aren't necessarily signs of intentional manipulation and ulterior motives.
