True Believer KOmmie Burned By ObamaCare
You know ObamaCare is in big trouble when even true believer KOmmies are getting burned by it as you can see in this THREAD, "Just my 2 cents-Health Care Market Place." This is what happens when a community organizer with no real world business experience awards the ObamaCare software contract not to the lowest bidder but to the highest bundler. It's the Chicago Way and the result is that CGI Federal has become the Solyndra of government software contracts. It just doesn't work and won't be working any time soon...if ever. So let us now watch KOmmie appledown lose his ObamaCare faith due to cruel online experience in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who spotted an ObamaCare navigator at Walmart today earning $48 an hour for doing NOTHING since NO ONE was at her table, is in the [barackets]:
Just on the phone with an ACA representative about verifying my identity. This happened because my first signup was “lost” (no such login) and I had to signup again. The Representative was nice, courteous and very helpful.
[For $48 per hour they better be nice.]
I explained that I uploaded my ID a week ago and still cannot complete the process and that I had been trying to get thru the application process for 2 weeks now. I was placed on the line with Experian (yes the credit rating company) and the recording stated I needed a reference number-I explained that the system did not give me a reference number and wondered why the upload was not received by Experian? The Rep said the “system” went down-I asked if I could upload again and was told I could only mail my ID via US mail.
[The system went down? Gee, what a surprise.]
I also stated that I am very surprised that Experian is involved with this process. I then asked for and spoke to a supervisor-who was courteous and explained that Experian is behind on verifications and I will get an email when this process is complete-that I did not have to “mail” my ID.
[No need to snail mail your ID that they will steal.]
All in all a pretty frustrating experience and since I support the ACA I cannot believe they were not ready for this roll out and that they should have chosen software and verification vendors that could handle the volume.
[The main qualification for the software was how much the company was willing to donate to the Obama campaign.]
Just my 2 cents.
[Your 2 cents and another $500 million in overruns for a software system that will NEVER work. Now on to the other KOmmies...]
All Good Reasons to Have Adopted Preschool Technology and limit signups to small fractions of the alphabet or birthdays each week for a month or 2 so that an untried system could never be overloaded.
[There could be only 10 people per day logging in and that software Solyndra still won't work.]
Anyway, what about calling the number at the bottom of the initial healthcare.gov page and start your application over the phone?
[Sure. I've got nothing better to do with my life than to be placed on permanent hold.]
The problem is the Dems missed a huge opportunity by not making sure the site worked well from day one. We are going to take massive hits on this and if it is fixed very soon, like by the time the shutdown and debt limit arguing is off the done and the media and the asshole Republicans start to focus on the website problems it will be ok, if not watch out it is going to get ugly!
[The Solyndra website won't be fixed by this time next year so very very ugly.]
I have tried to log on for the past 5 days in Georgia to look something up (we have already purchased Insurance through the exchange) but can't get past the login page.
[Georgia? I know someone in your state who successfully "enrolled" in ObamaCare: Chad Henderson. Find out how he did it.]
apparently if the system is too busy, you will sometimes be told that your account doesn't exist even if it does. The key as I discovered last night is to access your account in the middle of the night eastern time. I was able to log in at 11:00 PM Arizona time which is 2:00 AM eastern. The verification went OK but some entries like SSN were difficult to enter properly and took a number of tries. If you have trouble at the first query on SSN, check to see if it's an optional entry and if it is, just don't bother with it. The process will ask you for it again later. Sometimes entries like a phone number expect -'s to be used sometimes not. It also hiccuped on my email addressJust try and see what works. Anyway, I got most of the way through the process but decided to log out and continue another day. I hope the system remembers me!
[The Solyndra system already forgot that you even exist.]
Yes, the ID verification is a nightmare. For me, this is the biggest bottleneck I've encountered. It screwed up and flunked me when I answered the various questions about my life. Then Experian had no record of my applying, no code number. I finally have a drivers license uploaded, but over a week later my verification is still pending. The chat people are worthless, the number one priority of phone help is to give you the bums rush so they can move on to give the next caller the bums rush too. I've been going to healthcare.gov everyday since Oct. 1. I'm no closer to accomplishing anything. One of my favorite authors is Kafka. This whole experience reminds me of him.
[Is Joseph Heller another favorite author of yours because this sounds like you are stuck in "Catch 22."]
On healthcare.gov, I was asked for which cat I bought veterinary insurance.
[ObamaCat. It's ObamaCare for cats.]
We thought we'd just window shop, but for some reason there isn't a way to just look without signing in. I realize that's not the same as signing up, but I still don't really want to tell anybody I might be out there looking. Who wants to know? The NSA? The IRS? Credit bureaus? Other insurance companies who want to advertise to me too?
[The DNC? Nigerian emailers?]
My application says "Status: in progress". I wonder how long it will be before I can shop.
[The day after next year.]
We should just have a national ID card that gets issued to all citizens for use with exactly this kind of thing. Then there would be no problem whatsoever.
[But NOT for voting. No, no. We musn't do that.]
