Obamacare website can’t handle as much traffic as a website run by one guy in his pajamas

drudgereport.com is run by Matt Drudge, who runs the website in his pajamas from his apartment. I’ve visited his website just about every day since the late 20th century. It runs very well. His website has gotten as many as 45 million hits per day.

On the first day of the Obamacare website, it had 5 million visitors. It could not handle that amount of traffic.

IT experts who had analyzed the data going to and from the Obamacare website said the reason that people could not use it was because it was launching the equivalent of a “denial of service attack” against itself. They said the website was sending and receiving massive amounts of unnecessary data back and forth between itself and users’ computers. The IT experts attributed this to bad programming, and said that adding more servers would not fix the problem.

    Did they employ amateurs? No different than the rest of Obama’s cronies, then. I picture a gang of statist college students giggling while they write this crap. Sadly, the people who voted in this monstrosity are exempt from its depredations.

    Their IT guy says “Without volume, it works”.

    Great Post, though i have a question. What are the repercussions for failing to purchase health insurance and refusing to pay the “fine,” “tax,” “penalty” or whatever it’s being called now?

    Your website is great. The political arena deserves it. I would like your permission to use some of your links if possible.
