“We’re kind of thinking of it as a tech ‘surge,’” an HHS official told POLITICO.
One wonders if the “geniuses” in charge of HealthCare.gov are experienced in software engineering or software design. They need to read the classic on Software Engineering/Computer Science/Computer Engineering, the Mythical Man Month.
The summary: Fred Brooks, then at IBM, added more programmers to a project falling behind schedule, a decision that he later concluded had, counter-intuitively, delayed the project even further. This concept is nearly 40 years old and is a staple of most good major Computer Engineering/Computer Science programs.
Does the media not care? No, they are just buying the stupidity coming from Washington hook, line, and sinker.
“Somehow, liberals have been unable to acquire from life what conservatives seem to be endowed with at birth: namely, a healthy skepticism of the powers of government agencies to do good.” ~ Daniel Moynihan
“It’s time for someone to act like a grown-up in this process,” former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu argues, faulting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and tea party Republicans in the House as much as President Barack Obama for taking an uncompromising stance.
Sununu is right, someone has to act like a grown-up and take the credit card away from the spoiled teenager before the child runs the debt up so high that the responsible adults can no longer have a chance at paying it back. Someone has to act like an adult and protect freedom from the irresponsible children who want something for “free” at the expense of liberty.
Sununu and others are showing their true colors here. Governor, freedom is something that is worth fighting for.
President Obama started out his speech just now with “Good morning everyone” at 1:01 PM Eastern, October 1, 2013 President Obama from the White House.
The rest of the speech was just as accurate.
