Great read on WordPress and why its a good solution. HealthCare.gov is “a disaster,” “a failure” and “excruciatingly embarrassing” for the Obama administration. Why didn’t they just use WordPress? Of the 14 states running their own health insurance marketplaces, five — Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, Colorado and Hawaii — decided to use WordPress to powerto power their sites. Other markets, such as Illinois, which selected a federal partnership option, also tapped WordPress. Well these sites are far from perfect, they’ve performed much better than HealthCare.gov.
