Three 20-Year Olds Make Their Own Working ZeroCare Site In Just 3 Days

The Obama Administration has spent multiple years and over $634 million to build the Obamacare website, HealthCare.gov. Despite all of the time and money poured into the site, it still remains broken and glitchy.

Meanwhile in San Francisco, three 20-year-olds were able to build their own Obamacare website that actually works — and they did it in just three days.

Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser built HealthSherpa.com, which presents the Obamacare marketplace in a much simpler, more effective manner than HealthCare.gov does.

Currently, users must enter all of their personal information into the HealthCare.gov system before even getting a quote. On HealthSherpa.com, however, users only need to enter their zip code to see all of the plans and available pricing.

Liang said, “[The government] got it completely backwards in terms of what people want up front. They want prices and benefits, so that they could make the decision.”

HealthSherpa.com says, “The Health Sherpa is a free guide that makes it easier to find and sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. We only use carefully vetted, publicly available data.”

The trio claims they made the site to help people — not to make money. Wasser said, “There was no thought of, ‘How do we make money this time?’ It was like, ‘This is a problem that we know we can solve in a really short period of time. So let’s just do it.’”

The 20-year-olds’ project has many scratching their heads. With hundreds of millions of tax dollars at its disposal, why couldn’t the government get it right?

Good question.  Evidently, the kickbacks to the DNC caused the problems with Obamacare website.  The kids were not hindered by this problem.

  1. Those who say it can’t be done are being kicked in the arse by those doing it.

    If it weren’t so expensive to the American people, this would be hysterical. Three kids did what a huge company couldn’t do, that now has to be fixed by another huge company. Amazing.

    “ZeroCare site” – I love it!

    Hope the Obama admin doesn’t find out.

  4. Clyde says:

    Any bets on whether or not these clowns VOTED for Obama ? Shit, I think ANY one with a MODICUM of computer savvy could have done better than the incompetent bastards Obama hired. But, then again, WHAT- ME-WORRY doesn’t frankly give a shit how much it costs, or how much damage it does.

      Probably.

      Zerocare was never intended to work. The goal has always been single payer. Further, the bucks went to Wookie’s pals and then a bunch went to the DNC.

  5. Mrs AL says:

    Oh great … you know the national government is going to steal this (they don’t have to comply with copyright laws). Nice going, kids! hahaha

    Be nice if this made the nightly news…
    Just saying.

    Another thing about Obamacare I hadn’t thought of before.
    If ACA is so great; and if ACA offers affordable health insurance at lower premiums that we are all currently paying; and if ACA offers coverage for pre-existing conditions for everyone;
    Why the hell did the government have to hire a hundred thousand more IRS agents to ensure compliance??????
