Main Question or Discussion Point
A: How many days into the launch was it before he knew about the problems?HHS Chief Kathleen Sebelius said:President Obama didn't know about the problems with the Affordable Care Act's website until days into its launch.
B: How many days before the launch did the testers know about the problems?CNN said:It's not like no one saw this coming. A number of insurance companies complained of problems ahead of the October 1 launch, and the website crashed during a test run although just a few hundred users were on it.
Did Obama ask Sibelius on a regular basis how things were going? If he did ask, how often did he ask? Was it more than A + B? When he did ask, what did she tell him? If he didn't ask, should we remind him that the ACA is called Obamacare in the press?
There were other problems besides the crashes. I don't have citations, but I heard that the passwords of early users were lost, and that information gathered by the website was garbled or incomplete when it arrived at the insurance companies. Were those parts of the website tested? Earlier, I heard that it was impossible to know how many people had successfully applied using the website. Is that because there is no way to query the database? Later, I heard that a half million people did successfully apply. How do they know that?
I can't think of any more right now. Are there any other questions you would like answered?
