That's a Great Idea! What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

So, just for shits and giggles, I decided to check out what health insurance would cost me on New York's exchange. Besides the absurdity of having to give the government an obscene amount of information to get to see prices (seriously? who makes you sign up to see what something costs?), I was unable to finish the process due to an error message informing me that the monthly income I entered means that my annual income exceeds the maximum allowable parameter of $9,999,999,999.99.

Yes, you read that right. The New York State Health Exchange website thinks I make $10 billion a year.

Needless to say, this was news to me.

There's really just no excuse for a website set up for the purpose of purchasing something to be unable to perform basic arithmetic.
