"We have met the enemy, and they are us." --Pogo
These problems, if they are involved, are the sort of thing that would have been found in testing. But HHS didn't feel like getting around to testing until August for a first-of-October roll-out.But its HHS' gang that will (or won't) get around to reviewing our medical records and conditions to see whether we're worthy (or not) of this or that treatment.Certainly, the IT amateurs that HHS employs are not the medical amateurs that HHS employs, but the lackadaisical attitudes toward their jobs are set by a common management.Eric Hines
I recall a 2008 Xmas letter when a family friend wrote that NOW we are going to have the bright people run things. [Disclaimer: the brightest person in my high school class has worked in the Obama White House. Apart from his having worked for Obama, I have no bad things to say about him.] As if Dubya's people were so much doofuses. But so is Democrat mythology.The problem is that one really bright person running something that used to take 50 [or more] not-so-bright people to run is the same problem that Soviet economics ran up against. The price of a shoe in a capitalist system is the consequence of thousands of economic decisions. To think that one person can do just as well to determine the price which was originally set by thousands [number out of a hat] collides with reality.Supposedly dictators can get more things done than a democratic system can because dictators don't have to put up with the messy input into decisions that democracies do. Unfortunately, most dictators tend towards the incompetence of a Galtieri or Videla, not towards the competence of a Pinochet.A system that is more decentralized is going to be more stable.
I recall a 2008 Xmas letter when a family friend wrote that NOW we are going to have the bright people run things.I heard a similar conversation at Thanksgiving dinner at my house in 2008 - something to the effect of "We've had 8 years of stupid - it will be so nice to have the Really Smart Folks in charge again."*sigh*
