HealthCare.Gov Needs Five Million Code Lines Rewritten

Obamacare’s online exchanges have been riddled with problems since they came online three weeks ago, and those issues may continue for at least the next few weeks. Contractors said fixing the problems by the November 1 deadline set by the administration would be “unrealistic,” according to the New York Times.

From the sluggish websites to garbled enrollment information, the flaws require the extensive rewriting of code: “One specialist said that as many as five million lines of software code may need to be rewritten before the Web site runs properly,” the Times reports — that’s out of a total of approximately 500 million lines of code, according to another expert. 

Others experts warned that some of the website’s problem are yet to come. One technical specialist involved in the repair effort said, “The account creation and registration problems are masking the problems that will happen later.”

Sounds pretty typical for a government program.

My son writes code.

I'll ask him exactly what this means 

Sounds horrific and very wasteful of taxpayer money.

*sigh*  And how much is that going to cost?

 And the idiots in this country think the gov't can run our health care, when they can't even manage to hire a competent company to set up the website.  Then on top of that, they were so damn sure it was going to run perfectly, that they didn't even bother to do many, many test runs on it to be sure.  Sebelius should get her ass canned over this debacle.  But she won't, as Obama protects his loyal lemmings.

Trust me....5000 lines of code is a lot when someone doesn't know what they are doing and/or the system architecture is inherently wrong.

I think I would be highly skeptical of this being an accident.

All part of the designed to fail, intention of Obamacare.

This reminds me of that movie Independence day..when they are on the plane talking about area 51 and the father of the cable company owner says.."you don't really think they spend $50.00 for a hammer do ya"..  Not exact words but you get the drift.. WHERE did all that previous money go to that paid for this..hmmmmm..

I agree, but did we have to spend so much money to make it this bad?

I think so.

I don't think we could have purchased anything this bad for even a dollar less.
