Touted as the next best thing since invention of the abacus, HealthCare.gov continues to face plant whenever “too many” attempt negotiating that grand portal for all things health care. Frustrated visitors were instructed to try using the system during off-peak hours when demand would be lower.
Well, apparently that bank of Commodore 64s at the heart of ObamaCare are still overtaxed (pun intended). So, the geniuses in charge have decided to do away with that off-peak shopping option. NBC reports:
The application page of the Obamacare website — stricken with glitches for weeks — will go offline daily while a technology team works to resolve problems, the government said Sunday.
The Health and Human Services Department said that the application page of HealthCare.gov will go offline from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. daily. During those times, people will not be able to apply or enroll through the website.
Watching the HealthCare website repeated launch, only to belly flop again, is ample proof that no matter how hard they try, frogs can’t fly.
