ObamaCare Exchanges Flop

If you ever wanted a summary of the performance of the mal-performing Healthcare.gov exchanges, just look at the graph below:


Maryland is reported to have signed-up just 1100 persons so far (end of week 2).   Just 5 people have signed-up in Iowa.  NO one has signed up in Hawaii.

The Federal exchanges are doing the worse by far.  The healthcare exchanges, run by the federal government, is a classic example of over-arching Information Technology projects.  The IT industry has a horrible record of project failures, something like a 60 to 70% failure rate.  The reason:  too ambitious goals and over-arching reach for 'comprehensive' systems.

I have said that comprehensive anything from Washington is a flop.  I rest my case.
