Is It Possible The Obamacare Website is Fixed At The End of November? It Depends on What The Meaning Of “Is” Is

No worries. The website that is a key component for Obamacare will be ready for prime time by Nov. 30. In fact, as Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Wednesday, the site is already able to handle “17,000 registrants per hour … with almost no errors.”

Unfortunately, a little while later, Sebelius’ optimism appeared to be undercut by one of her own employees. Julie Bataille, spokesperson with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, said that “the site is performing slowly” and that many users were having problems.

Can the Obamacare website really be fixed by the end of this month? Or are the latest sunny forecasts another prelude to a storm?

It depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is .
