I've tried repeatedly to sign on to the Obamacare website. In my professional opinion, it's a piece of sh*t awful. The people behind the site should be fired and exposed. 

There are so many problems with the website it is hard to tell where to start. 


by rob kall


The first few days I tried to find out about how Obamacare would work for me, I  would get one or two clicks in, be told to sign up, and get a message that the servers were overloaded. 

When I finally could get past that, the system asked me to engage in a sign-up protocol that's different than any I'd done before. There are a collection of problems with that. 

1-Why should I have to sign up just to see what my options are? Sites almost never work that way unless they are trying to acquire marketing information. So what gives here? Why are Obama's people forcing people to sign up just to get a look? 

2-The system has odd password requirements. I have a regular way I do passwords. It wouldn't let me. There are only two other sites out of scores that I'm signed up for where I can't use my usual approach to passwords, which creates a unique password for each website. 

3-The system required me to come up with personal answers to two questions, new, different questions. Very creative, but invasive and annoying. Also unnecessary. 

I went through all the paces as best I could. But when I finished I was given a message that I did something wrong. Just to be clear, I design website software. I am not your average user. I am far more sophisticated than the average user.  I would expect that the average user would find the Obamacare website to be even more challenging. Actually, since I didn't get in, I don't know that it will be any more challenging. 

So I'm wondering, what has your experience been? I figure, at the worst, in three years I'll be eligible for Medicare. Of course, by then, they'll probably add medicare to that horrific website. 

One thing I found that gives answers is this tool.
