Shoot, healthcare.gov's overseers should threaten destruction of the site.

re: Hackers Threaten Destruction Of Obamacare Website
One factor not in Healthcare.gov's favor to handle an overload of requests is the fact that the site is hosted in government data centers, which don't offer the elasticity commonly associated with web services. Federal rules still prevent many agencies from hositng certain kinds of data on public or hybrid clouds, so they opt to host the data in private government-owned/managed data centers. In Healthcare.gov's case, CMS would have to acquire more servers (to have on hand during peak periods) than it has currently been authorized to buy.

At least the healthcare.gov website developers would have a better excuse if they were being attacked. Well, they're already being attacked ... but if the website was under attack by someone other than the people just trying to use the thing.
