I JUST FIGURED OUT HOW TO FIX EVERYTHING!

I had a revelation today while trying to buy healthcare. I’m telling you, this idea is a huge opportunity for the right Startup to partner with one of the world’s biggest companies!

Background

Here in Oregon, one needs to use the state’s Cover Oregon web site to sign up for Obamacare. The only problem is, the site does not work.

Having tried myself, I can tell you that it is currently is impossible to get Obamacare through the Cover Oregon web site. I applied a month ago and have heard nothing. Why? Their application is nothing but a PDF form that someone prints somewhere so they can key your data into Oracle!

According to this article in the Oregonian, who is to blame for this debacle? Oracle!

Now it all makes sense.

 
I tried to call Cover Oregon and see what the deal is. After two hours on hold, I never even got through.

I ended up purchasing insurance directly at moda.com. They know how to do business and have a web site that works.

So I’m asking myself, why do we need to apply in the first place? We are required by law to buy insurance.

And then it hit me.

The IRS needs to adopt Obamacare’s business model and hire Oracle to do the web site! You’ll have to apply to pay your taxes.

We will all be much richer in the end.
