The $600m contract was let to SERCO in July, which means they had to get all the hardware & software equipment up running, commisioned and tested, as well as staff training on it, all in 2 months. No wonder the website is a chaotic mess.

There should have been one or two State trials to iron out the bugs before attempting to go nationwide. Its always the same when politicians are in charge,they are frightened of losing face if a big project is delayed.

Now they are having to get in specialist healthcare software designers to iron out the 'bugs'. Seems they have totally underestimated the complexity of what something like this site would require.

This sounds a bit like the ill fated British NHS computer records system which never got off the ground and cost 12billion($20billion). 33 times as much and still counting!

Google the historical price for the Pharmaceutical Index "DRG". Check their prices over the last few years and see for yourself if you think the insiders bettering on pharmaceuticals are fearing Obamacare. If so inclined, check the historical prices for the top manufacturers... odd that for many, their operational profits are in the red but their stock prices are continuing to rise? What's everybody betting on?

Ride the inner city buses. You'll see what they're selling. If I was an a-hole, I'd buy those stocks and sit on them for 10 years. Probably the surest bet going.

Blood thinners, chemotherapeutic agents, etc. . . but above all, I'd bet on vaccines and psychoactive drugs. Vaccines are "medicines" that they shoot up on everybody... and Obamacare will increase the number of "everybody". Psychoactive drugs are just a matter of statistics. Take a playground full of kids and throw them into the psychiatrist wheel of fortune and it's guaranteed that a majority of them will walk away with a prescription. A kid could go see 5 different therapists and each would probably diagnose him with 5 different "illnesses" and probably prescribe 5 different medications but don't forget the important part. The important part is that they're walking away having experienced "affordable health care". Oh, and some kids won't be walking away. That's because this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dia...ised_(DC:_0-3R)

is a mental evaluation for kids aged 0 to 3. And after all the blabber and "science", every road leads right back to medication.

Overinvolved
Underinvolved
Anxious/Tense
Angry/Hostile
Mixed Relationship Disorder
Abusive

^The only way an average kid isn't going to be medicated within the next 10 years is if he is a walking dead. Wait a sec. . . they have that one covered too. "Cotard's Syndrome". And surprise?!? How could I have guessed that they treat even this one with a antidepressants? Or antipsychotics, or mood stabilizers? Oh that's right. Because they treat every single "illness" in their code book with all of these things.

The problem may not be who pays for it, but who is prescribing it.
