Why Does the Healthcare.gov Website Not Work?

Forbes just wrote a great article about the truth of why Obamacare’s Website continuously keeps trashing. To some US citizens it is a surprise and to others it was foreseen.
A panel of IT experts, outside and inside the government, concluded the reason why the Healthcare.gov website has been crashing. The Healthcare.gov forces applicants to “create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies.” However most insurance websites are transparent about their prices and let shoppers pick a plan first, then fill out the application. But even more distressing, the government “was afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away”.
According to Manhattan Institute analysis states, “on average, the cheapest plan offered in a given state, under Obamacare, will be 99 percent more expensive for men, and 62 percent more expensive for women, than the cheapest plan offered under the old system. And those disparities are even wider for healthy people.”

But what was the reason for this? Was this what we the citizens were promised? “The answer is that Obamacare wasn’t designed to help healthy people with average incomes get insurance. It was designed to force those people to pay more for coverage, in order to subsidize insurance for people with incomes near the poverty line”.
