Congressional Republicans are waging war against a hapless Web Site and hoping it leads to the destruction of Obamacare, the health care program they loathe yet can?t stop talking about it. As a tactic, it?s no more likely to succeed than this autumn?s self-wounding decision by Republicans to force a partial government shutdown and flirt with default on the national debt.

WASHINGTON, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Experts from top technology and Internet companies including Google Inc, Oracle Corp and Red Hat Inc have joined the Obama administration's effort to fix its troubled HealthCare.gov website, a U.S. official said on Thursday.

Individuals from Oracle and Red Hat have expertise in site reliability, stability and scalability, according to a blog post by Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, which is overseeing the effort.

She also identified two experts by name: Michael Dickerson, a site reliability engineer on leave from Google, and Greg Gershman, whom she identified as developer and entrepreneur. Gershman, a Baltimore-based innovation director with the firm Mobomo, previously worked for the White House and the General Services Administration.
