The Obama administration has made every excuse under the sun for the failure of HealthCare.gov. Turns out, they knew it was going to be a flop, but proceeded anyways.
(Reuters) – The Obama administration launched its troubled healthcare insurance website after only a minimum of crucial system-wide testing, despite contractors warning officials repeatedly about performance risks, a congressional panel heard on Thursday.
Witnesses said the administration did not conduct end-to-end testing of the system’s technology backbone until just the two weeks before one of the lynchpins of President Barack Obama’s landmark healthcare policy opened to consumers on October 1.
At a U.S. House of Representatives oversight committee hearing, contractors also blamed the administration for a last-minute design change that has been identified as a flaw responsible for leading millions of visitors into system bottlenecks.
