"Tech Surge" to Fix Broken Obamacare Web Site

You would think that anyone could create a great web site with $300+ million at their disposal. But not Barack the Terrible's bureaucracy. So they are about to spend millions more on a "tech surge" to fix the broken web site:

The Department of Health and Human Services said Sunday it was bringing in outside help to resolve some of the technical woes that have beset the federally run insurance exchanges, which the agency acknowledged “has not lived up to the expectations of the American people.”
“We are committed to doing better,” agency officials said in a blog post that also said that “our team is bringing in some of the best and brightest from both inside and outside government to scrub in with the team and help improve”
Spokespeople for the agency didn’t immediately respond to questions seeking more information about the development, which it is billing as a “tech surge.”
The blog post also confirmed that the agency had made several changes to the system in recent days to ease problems millions of consumers were having creating accounts, the first stage in the site’s process for people to shop for insurance plans and apply for federal assistance to pay for them.
Those changes included adding capacity and making software fixes to address some of the sign-up and log-in flaws, agency officials said. They also said they were “defining new test processes” to check on the site’s progress, and encouraging consumers to tell them of any problems they found by visiting
Obama the Terrible and his merry band of leftists have a record with "surges" and it ain't a good one. We've had a surge of debt under this president that totals nearly $8 trillion, much of that they labeled "stimulus". This "surge" of stimulus has produce a surge in unemployment, a surge in Americans giving up looking for work, a surge in gas prices, a surge in Americans being dropped from full time to part time employment, a surge in food prices ...Remember the economic "surge" that wasn't: Shiftless Joe Biden's "recovery summer" in 2009 (or was that 2010; it's hard to tell one lackluster economic summer from another).

Given their record with "surges" I'm sure this "tech surge" will go every bit as well as Barack the Terrible's other surges have. I can hardly wait.
