As Obama forces out apology, Healthcare.gov spews out garbled computer code

Screenshot of Healthcare gov websiteThe president did something unprecedented on Thursday. In an interview at the White House with NBC’s Chuck Todd, he uttered the words, “I’m sorry.” His exact sentiment was (video here):

I am sorry that they [Americans who are losing or have lost their health insurance because of Obamacare] are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me.

We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.

Obama’s hollow contrition and four bucks will buy you a latte at Starbucks, but can everyone now agree that he has apologized?

As to what his administration is doing to rectify the problem of uninsuring Americans with insurance, perhaps the most coherent account comes from the Healthcare.gov website, which is telling those who attempt to log on, “???ffe.ee.myAccount.login.username???”

That’s right, the once much-ballyhooed technological liaison between the 40 million Americans who lacked health insurance and government salvation is spitting out nonsensical computer code. The message the site is aiming for, for better or worse, is this.

But, as the administration is fond of saying, Obamacare is more than a website. That is a fact that North Carolinians, to name one group, are distressingly aware of. CBS Charlotte reports that as of Oct. 15, a mere 1,000 residents had applied. Of that number, one person enrolled in the exchange but has not yet paid the premium, which makes the enrollment official.

It gets worse:

Blue Cross Blue Shield found the entire system is so filled with glitches that the company decided not to upload data because it was afraid false information might enter its computer system.

And the emails reveal a scammer was using the insurer’s name to try to obtain personal information.

A person was making phone calls claiming to be with the ‘National Health Care Registry,’ and falsely claim it was taking over healthcare reform contracts from the Blue Cross.
