    I think this Healthcare.gov contract must have been awarded to cronies and in-laws instead of the most competent bidder.

    No, since lemonade stands now require a permit.

    It should be no surprise at all that a group/company that had failed in prior system development efforts would stand a good chance of failing again. While past performance is not a guarantee of future success/failure, it is certainly a decent starting point and well worth looking into.

    And our absolutely wonderful government contracting system basically never seems to take any of this into consideration. Contracting out to private business consistently fails to save money and also fails to improve quality. Design problems get amplified because our government also loves to change the requirements halfway through the process. We've just designed the fuselage for your new fighter, wait, now you want to increase the range by 30%? Welp, starting over.

    The whole system is ****ed.

    Of course, to steal from Stewart, saying obamacare is a bad law because the website doesn't work is like saying ice cream is bad because you can't find a spoon.

    Slow down there skippy. The decision to contract out the PPACA website/system was either in the law or deemed to be better by HHS; in either case it was 100% under control of the demorats and made over three years ago. If you are contracting out the building of a house, you don't simply pay them 100% up front (or issue a time and materials contract), you inspect the work, as it progresses, and pay them only upon successful completion of each stage. John Stewart should certainly have expected Obama, et al, to have known the importance of having that spoon handy as opposed to just watching all of that ice cream melt.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Hey now, everyone knows that it's best to let ice cream melt a little bit instead of eating it completely frozen. So therefore... website melting...gives you time to find a spoon? I am not good at metaphors.

    On the contrary. It would be a refreshing change.

    It would be anything but 'refreshing'. I swear, people who call for armed insurrection are so short-sighted. But I guess living under martial law, being labeled an enemy combatant and marked for termination would be 'refreshing' for some. Get a grip on reality, man. Better yet, look at what's happening in Syria. The threat of warplanes, tanks, helicopter gunships and military forces en masse in the streets is not 'refreshing'. It is hell.
