Obamacare is not that much different than a ship designed to sail through the largest healthcare insurance storms that could possibly be imagined.

A grandiose conception carrying the American people on an ark, protecting them from the ravages of exposure to the current healthcare system.

We were told that the millions of people who have been left adrift in the vast and dangerous sea of life without medical insurance would be rescued. Unfortunately, Obamacare is like a ship that began to leak even before it was launched.

Fundamental to the creation of a national and international healthcare insurance system is the means to actually create the computer systems that will work to accommodate the coordination and sale of health insurance across at least 50 different platforms.

The only way to really test Obamacare is to have the 50 state insurance exchange computer systems in place and then see if it all works together.

Most of us have had the experience of buying a tried and true computer program for our office that we were assured would install just perfectly. Of course, every computer program comes with a support hotline or other tech support. A program that might work fine on one computer becomes a bit trickier when using a server and adding on one or two more computers.

That's why we who have screwed this up a couple of times do not touch the servers or attempt to put any programs on them. Our tech people do that. Even then, even when using a standard computer program with the server and computers being bought at the same time specifically for this purpose, there are always glitches and bugs.

With Obamacare, the government has no program. Effectively a ship has been designed that cannot be built. And none of the 50 parts that make up the total ship have the same specifications.

When anyone looks down from the top deck to the bottom of the hull they see a large hole. That is where the cybersecurity should be. The problem is that there is no cybersecurity for all the information that is intended to be loaded on the Obamacare computer system assuming that such a system exists.

Now I have read that just a day or two ago somebody in the government issued a press release that said there was security test and that the Obamacare system passed.

I suppose that if all the officers and directors of all the companies and organizations who will have absolute personal liability for any loss of private information believe the government claim that Obamacare is secure, then they deserve to get sued out of existence.

Sure, Obamacare defenders will say that any liability is insured. I am, in that case, awfully interested in seeing exactly what kind of officer and director liability insurance policy will be issued when the insurance company has no data to determine the frequency or severity of potential losses.

Obamacare is the largest most expensive medical insurance vessel ever conceived in the history of the world. But even before it is launched this coming Tuesday, the good ship Obamacare is springing leaks and starting to sink.
