The clogging of the Net plumbing for the Obamacare site has caused much online frustration among the appliers. The glitches have delayed the medical insurance and aid that was the due right of many people who needed them on an urgent basis. The Obamacare glitches are related to website's software and design but government blamed high volume of online visitors.

The hired attendants that were to enroll people online in accordance with the Obamacare plan failed to do their job due to certain issues. Over 50 contractors and 500 navigators had been assigned to the task of filing applications for those who were suffering from ailments and needed the medical amenities fast. 

But the systems crashed due to the high demand and things didn’t work out as planned. There were several issues that cropped up and due to which the plan ultimately failed. Lack of awareness, untrained staff, procrastination, no feedback and finally computer-related shutdowns all combined to bring about these state of affairs. 

WSJ reports for these Obamacare glitches that, "The website is troubled by coding problems and flaws in the architecture of the system, according to insurance-industry advisers, technical experts and people close to the development of the marketplace." But a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, Joanne Peters, said, "We can do better and we are working around the clock to do so.".

The flood of individuals who wanted the service led to a virtual arteriosclerosis of the channels of communication in cyberspace. The system seemed to go into a glut. Since the program was on such a large scale that it defied all odds, it also had its share of problems right from its very inception. 

Meanwhile, the President has urged the people to have a little patience as regards the service. Everything will be back on track soon. Or at least that is the hope given by the government after this big blunder. It appears that besides the bickering in politics, technology has caused a lot of harm to the current leadership of the United States of America.
