From what I have been reading on the tubes, the roll-out of the ACA exchanges has been spotty, at best. I have not personally tried because I have insurance and it makes no sense to clog up already overtaxed servers just to gawk, so I have no first-hand experience.
I do, however, have three decades of gaming and online gaming, so I guess I am just rolling my eyes at the reaction- “OMG- SOMETHING BRAND NEW THAT MILLIONS WANT IS BEING SLOW AND MIGHT TAKE A COUPLE WEEKS TO SORT OUT! CLEARLY THIS IS ALL A FAILURE!” Only someone who has never used the internet would behave this way.
As a gamer, I feel particularly immune to this nonsense. Only someone who didn’t experience Blizzard’s rollout of the AQ invasion in Silithus, only someone who didn’t wait a week to download a patch for Baldur’s Gate over a 14.4 modem while your roommates picked up the damned phone, only someone who has spent 3 days downloading .zip files at 28.8 only to get the last file downloaded and find the entire mess corrupted could react this way.
Are there problems? You Betcha (wink and a nod and a rub and tug for Rich Lowry). But the reaction has been ridiculous. And what infuriates me the most is that the Republican party is not being called out for what they are doing, which is dumping the famed “repeal and replace” mantra with nothing more than epic concern trolling about the problems with the new exchanges they have done everything to destroy.
