re: Tech Contractors Reject Blame For Healthcare.gov Mess
Most amazing to me is the complete lack of accountability coming from both sides--the government and the contractors. The government is looking for outside answers when they should be looking internally and finding the weak link within their own structure. Contractors, in typical Washington style, think they can somehow skirt the issue by pointing fingers. Both sides are responsible and both sides need to step up and take responsibility, or the problems won't be going away any time soon.

Unanticipated volume should never be an excuse for the failure of a website that should have been built to accommodate a large volume of visitors.

There's should be no excuse for inadequate testing. Did mandated deadlines force administrators to launch these sites before they were ready? I'm was a believer that single-payer might help drive excessive cost out of health care, but if our first experience with a government-provided resource is incompetence, it's not going to inspire trust or get people behind making the new approach work.
