Seven Sure Fire Ways to Fix the Affordable Care Act – Obamacare – Web Site and Avoid the Dreaded Death Spiral

In this site’s never ending quest to solve problems and make the world a better place, we are going to dive – head first – into ways to help solve one of the greatest problems of the day; how to fix the screwed-up, Affordable Care Act (ACA), Obamacare, The Great SNAFU, or What-Ever-You-Want-To-Call-It web site.
Apparently there are different phases to the problem.

First problem: just plain ol’ logging on.

Then actually registering for an account seems to be trouble.

Then signing up for an insurance policy; next signing up for a policy you can actually afford (the A in ACA), and finally getting enough young healthy people to sign up for an expensive policy to pay for all the new people with chronic health problems who are desperate for insurance.
This last is to avoid the dreaded “Death Spiral” – must admit, this is the first time have heard of a government program that is not military in nature with the potential to “Death Spiral.”
After much thought (fifteen minutes at least) and a targeted focus group (talked to a guy at a bus stop) here are the Seven Sure Fire Fixes to the Obamacare web site that we were able to come up with:

NSA Logo on Floor
1) Tell the National Security Agency (NSA) that it is a way of gathering data on Americans – they’ll have it up and running in no time.

Kathleen Sebelius
2) Instead of the picture of the smiling woman on the Home Page post a video of Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius twerking.

Steve Jobs
3) Hold a Séance at the White House and summon the spirit of Steve Jobs, then ask him how to fix it.

Call of Duty Ghosts
4) Make successfully signing up for a health insurance plan on an exchange one of the stages of Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Google Bot
5) Make it all a subsidiary of Google.

Eric Snowden
6) Give Eric Snowden a Presidential pardon and then ask him to come back to the US; he seems to know how all this stuff works.

Happy Doctor
7) Actually let People Who Like Their Plan, Keep their Plan.
