    LOL!!

    The only possible good thing that will come out of this is that Obama will ask Congress to delay the mandate because I don't think there is any way they'll fix this thing before Jan1.
    Bless your heart.

    In fact, it seems that Rockstar's problems are very similar to Obama's problems. I wonder if they hired the same company?

    And the deductible and out-of-pocket max? Based on information provided by the state of Texas, they stated that the lowest cost silver-plan is 287/mo. Did you get a 3,000 tax credit, or did they pay it straight to the insurer?

    They pay it straight to the insurer. And your information is wrong. I got it for 56 bucks a month. Deductible is $3,000.00.

    Maybe Obama should have hired Bethesda.
    ...and again to be fair, MMO computer games have a huge profit motivation to make sure the games run smoothly, so they'll throw tons of money to make sure it does. Government spending is closely eyed and unless you're in DoD, you certainly will not have a blank check to do whatever you wish.

    Like I said, perhaps they could have used a consultant to assist with the problems of such a massive day one launch.

    Never fear.As I understand it they are now calling in teams of private businessmen to fix the problem with their government system, designed to replace a private system. Because government is 'the answer'...

    i think that the obama administration screwed up on healthcare.gov because we hired a incompetent contractor who took advantage of it's open-ended contract to give us a bad product at ever-increasing rates. the company is called CGI.
