Healthcare.gov Shutdown Over Weekend
But it's not why you think.
Barack Obama’s Healthcare.gov website, where people can go to make an hours-long attempt to sign up for health coverage, shut down over the weekend, but it wasn’t a political stunt to highlight the government shutdown. Instead, it was undergoing maintenance to try to correct some of the major problems the site had in its first week. You know, the “glitches” Obama brushed off as just like Apple. So it’s no surprise to find that when Reuters interviewed some IT experts they were underwhelmed by the architecture of the government website.
