Despite the shutdown, the healthcare initiative was rolled out, but a fundamental objection of the opponents of the law is that it wasn’t ready.

So, the Obama Administration was hoping for a smooth first few days, but instead the site was plagued with glitches.

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services told The Wall Street Journal that it was mostly the fault of “a sloppy software foundation.”

A few days after the federal site that allowed people to enroll in the healthcare exchanges went live, web developers took to publicly mocking the code errors that were the source of a lot of the problems.

Given the numbers of errors publicly visible, one commenter said, “I don’t even know what their dev environment looks like.”

Despite the shutdown, the folks in charge of the website were not furloughed, but were still ineffective in countering the glitches.
