The Michigan Health Insurance Marketplace, Michigan's first step in the Obamacare revolution, fizzled yesterday. There were all sorts of problems with error messages and glitches. People simply could not access the site, nor could they in most every other state in the Union. The program had a rather inauspicious start, to say the least. One wonders if it is little more than a sign of things to come.
Yes, there was a lot of demand, and heavy traffic flow affects websites. But if government is supposed to be the answer, being made up of all those experts who know what's best for us, wouldn't they have anticipated such an obvious potential problem? Doesn't everyone know that high volume affects serves and such? And high volume should have been expected, seeing as everyone who relies on government wants to have their piece of the pie.
Yet the government wasn't ready for it.
And you think it will be able to give you access to quality healthcare at good prices? Let's say we're skeptical.
