A month into its debut and people are slowly coming to realize the debacle that is Obamacare. Individuals are being timed out from the website and are unable to complete their application. One of the excuses given for this issue is that the website is overwhelmed by the number of people signing on. But according to Alexa, which measures internet traffic on websites, Healthcare.gov is ranked 233 for web traffic in the United States. http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/healthcare.gov That ranks it below Zappos, Norstrom, and Staples. I don’t recall hearing about people unable to select their favorite UGGS due to web traffic.
Healthcare.gov was incapable of handling one applicant, let alone hundreds. But lets face it, these will be the golden days of Obamacare. The will treat will come when millions of people see their premiums go up, get kicked off of their health care plans, and be fined for not signing up onto a broken website. Or is that the trick.
