A friend of mine tried to sign up for Obamacare at the Healthcare.Gov website and ran into some trouble right at the password!
Imagine if the crap going on at the Obamacare website was happening at a business in the private sector that had to actually manage expenses and answer for their bottom-line results.
Government, particularly the Obama government, operates under neither of those constraints.
The Password Story (R-Rated)!
I decided to go on line to sign up for Obamacare. The first thing you need to do is establish a password, so this is what happened....
"You must enter a password to proceed."
"Sorry, too few characters."
"Sorry, you must use at least one numerical character."
-1 pretty rose
"Sorry, you cannot use blank spaces."
"Sorry, you must use at least 10 different characters."
"Sorry, you must use at least one upper case character."
"Sorry, you cannot use more than one upper case character consecutively."
"Sorry, you must use no fewer than 20 total characters."
"Sorry, you cannot use punctuation."
"Sorry, that password is already taken."
