So I've been holding off on posting on the Healthcare Marketplace, mostly because I don't want the political debate. Speaking as a web developer it's not a huge project. At the end of the day, the marketplace is a shopping cart (give the user the ability to filter products, select one and check out). It's not a new problem, it was solved in 1995 when Amazon launched. On second thought, a travel site is a better example Travelocity launched in 1996. Either way the meme that "this has never been done before" is ridiculous.
