The problem is not the web site its the PRODUCT!
Well, I would reword that to say that "The bigger problem is not the web site its the PRODUCT!"
That said, it is important to understand that healthcare.gov is, as was explained by David Kennedy on Greta's show, essentially the hub of the whole incredibly complex system. The product isn't going to happen if the site is crippled or is not trusted by the majority of the people.
Trying to make the site secure, with half a billion lines of code already written with flawed security from the ground up, and almost certainly with many hackers already "inside", is likely effectively impossible, unless the developers, or more sensibly, some new, more competent developers, throw out the whole thing and restart from scratch.
What puzzles me is that no publicly visible "leaders" who oppose Obamacare, or at least say they do, have made noise about the security problems, when every independent cyber-expert I know of has said, in effect, "don't create an account on healthcare.gov if you value your personal data." If people (not to mention insurance companies, etc.) took the experts' advice, that alone would derail Obamacare.
The only thing I can figure is that Palin, Cruz, and others, either don't understand the above, or they figure that if the present site lurches on, the security problems will take some months to manifest themselves in a big way: That will give them large numbers of Identity Thefts and real (electronic) $$ thefts to use as a continuing campaign issue going into Nov. 2014.
I can sort of understand that strategy: Allow one evil to cut off the legs of an even greater evil, and possibly as an extra bonus destroy the libs for at least a couple election cycles. But it could backfire: "You knew, and didn't do all you could to prevent millions (?) of identity thefts?" I also cringe at the thought of "allowing" that much damage, even if is mostly to people not hostile to Obamacare. "Coventry", perhaps?
