ObamaTax Exchange Crunch-Time edition

Poor Ms Kathy: the clock keeps on tickin', and her pet project keeps getting a lickin'.

To wit:

■ Capital City itself

"The ObamaCare exchange serving Washington, D.C. is delaying important parts of its operations less than a week before it is scheduled to open for enrollment"

Not only won't potential enrollees be unable to calculate their subsidies (if any), but they can't even determine whether or not they're eligible for Medicaid.

■ Colorado

"Colorado exchange managers revealed Monday ... that customers who want tax credits to make health insurance more affordable will have to call for help, rather than navigating the multi-million dollar computer system on their own."

I'm sure that'll go over big with the 20-somethings that hold the key to the whole train-wreck's "success."

■ Utah

"Obamacare’s insurance marketplace was supposed to have “no wrong door ... Consumers will need to find the right door ... or they will possibly face delays in obtaining coverage"

The whole "No Wrong Door" meme was heavily promoted in the Exchange Certification training. Why am I not surprised that it's DOA?

■ Oregon

When it rains, it pours:

"Oregon ... won’t meet all the requirements for its health-insurance exchange when the online marketplace opens Oct. 1 ... For at least two weeks, people using Cover Oregon won’t be able to complete their purchase without help from a certified insurance broker or community group"

Feature or bug? What difference, at this point, does it make?
