    What is there are projections and predictions. Why doesn't it bother you that not one Obama prediction or projection has been accurate? History says those projections are wrong but like most liberals you are too immature or arrogant to admit that you are wrong. There aren't enough doctors to meet the demand and there isn't one liberal social program that ever cost what it was supposed to cost, do what it was supposed to do, and not leave the country with massive debt. Liberals are insane and arrogant, doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result

    Obama Claims Raising Debt Ceiling Doesn't Increase Debt
    Increasing the debt ceiling does not raise the debt anymore than increase a credit card limit increases credit card debt. Moreover, NOT increasing the debt ceiling does not mean the debt goes away (nor does it mean that debt will not increase... try cutting up your credit card and NOT paying the bill and see what happens to your personal debt).

    You need to increase the debt ceiling to allow government to write the checks to service the debt. If you do not do that, the debt will go up anyway (for a variety of reasons, including revenue will go down as a result of reduced economic activity).

    Debt is increased when expenditures exceed revenue (this activity has nothing to do with the debt ceiling). You can fix this equation by lowering expenditures or raising revenues. Smart people, of course, would do both. You can exasperate the situation by increasing expenditures or decreasing revenues (dumb people, in this situation, do either). Not raising the debt ceiling is one of the surest ways of doing both.

    BTW... John Boehner is an idiot with the leadership skills of Gomer Pyle and the backbone of jellyfish.

This roll out is easily the worst I have ever seen. The problem is compounded by the nature of the service provided. In a private industry you eventually get a respite with a hard crash like this when you find your system can't handle traffic because. In that environment the traffic eventually subsides (as you lose business) and you hit a "happy" medium where the load of the server isn't too high to kill it and you can manage improvements and hope the customers trickle back.

    On the government side it is very different because there is no trickle off of customers. The customer is required by law to use this service so every day where there is no service the hits snowball the traffic to the next day and the next and the next. So not only do they need more hardware, they need even more hardware than would have been needed at the original launch because the customers aren't going away, they are just all being put on hold until some time in the future when you have a system big enough to attend to them all.

    This is no small task even if it is just a not-enough-hardware issue.

    But I'd guess it is more than just that based on how hard it has crashed. There are likely bugs in the coding, poorly configured network routing and any number of other gremlins born of poor planning that they still need to address. If that is the case you are looking at the shortest path being a tear down of one site (I assume they at least have coop and dr in place) and rebuild it then fail over to the fixed site... but that is a 6 month project at minimum... more if you want to ensure you aren't duplicating the mistakes of the past. And you still have all the state exchanges to worry about.

    But anything is possible, I guess. Major private industries are moving away from the home grown cloud to IAAS for just this reason. All the gremlins that come from a new build go away when you contract a company that rolls perfectly clean versions of this kind of infrastructure 24/7/365.

    Look at it this way: It took them two years to build this. The fix is likely not going to be two weeks.
    How many millions of dollars did the Obama administration waste on this web site? And almost three years to get it up and running. LOL. It works about as well as Obamadon'tcare will.

    Here's another thought. Say in several months that actually get it working to the point that somebody may want to enroll that got frustrated and gave up trying. Then the open enrollment time frame ends (meaning most people can't sign up) so this same person that tried and couldn't because of a crashed web site, now gets told he has to wait until the next open enrollment. He's probably done with Obamadon'tcare.

    Any business or government agency only gets one shot at a first impression. Obamadon'tcare is off to a horrible start.

    You mean that implementing the ACA would bend the Medicare cost curve down?

    Oops. Look like it is already.

    Thanks, Barack!

    The increase in the debt ceiling gives the Congress and the President authorization to spend more money, happens all the time. Why is this year any different than the 2011 negotiations? The debt ceiling was raised to 16.7 trillion dollars when the debt was 14.7 trillion. Promises were made to get our house in order and 2 trillion dollars in more debt and we are back to 2011 negotiations. You buy the Obama Administration rhetoric and ignore the Obama Administration results. Obama loves having people like you

    I don't think I would be talking about leadership skills when your support is for Obama. Obama is a street thug who campaigns, divides, and demonizes. That maybe leadership in your world but your company would be bankrupt with that kind of leader and his results.

    LOL, not bad for a program that hasn't even gone into effect. How did ACA which isn't in effect created a reduction in Medicare? Is that what they teach you in the Chicago School system?

    This is a debate board and it's expected that you respond directly to the questions raised and not refer the participants to other sites to debate on your behalf..

    If you don't know what he meant why not ask him instead of guessing at the question?

    It seems all Barrack supporters have problems with comprehension and it seems certain that Teacher's Unions are largely responsible for this situation.
