Conclusion: the ACA exchanges are going to be one more example of government IT projects than run horribly over-budget and deliver (at best) a barely-working unmaintainable system. It’s great news for IT contractors and for large project-managing firms like EDS, Lockheed-Martin etc., but the taxpayers are really going to get it in the shorts.
And Hopper does know his onions on this.
I’m actually sitting here wondering how bad a car crash these state insurance exchanges are going to be. Could they actually be as bad as the NHS IT system?
In fact, I’m wondering whether they will actually work at all. Anyo9ne know o want to make a prediction?
