The A-Team will meet the November 30 deadline for www.Healthcare.gov. Yes, it will. Really. You can trust her.
She says that the site is now handling 25,000 people at one time. On Saturday, it will handle 50,000.
Stop laughing! This is serious!
But that means a doubling in just two days — and one of them is Thanksgiving.
This is the A-Team. They can do it.
Will it work as promised? No glitches. Well, no. “There will be times after November 30th when Healthcare.gov does not function properly,” she explained. But it will work improperly. That’s all that anyone ever promised. Period.
However, just to make sure there is not too much traffic, the Obama Administration has deferred the mandatory date for small businesses to buy insurance by one year, to November 2014.
November 2014. Let’s see. What will be going on in November 2014. Something important. I’m sure of it. Oh, well.
The target for the website’s repair was 50,000 people at one time. The government is halfway there. That’s official. It says so. There is no independent verification of this. But that’s not necessary. You can take the government’s word for it . . . or at least one lady in charge of public relations. It’s 25,000, and it will be 50,000 on Saturday.
Call it Black Saturday. It will be ready for heavy demand.
To test this, the site needs 50,000 people trying to sign up at one time.
Where is it going to get 50,000 to try to sign up at one time? No one seems to know. “If we build it, they will come.”
