The Cost and Failure of ACA Website

Eventually there SHOULD be a big story on federal fraud and deceit. Consider that the world's most expensive website creation to date has been www.recovery.com The five year $18 million contract to redesign the recovery.gov website was granted to Smartronix, an IT firm with connections to Steny Hoyer, the House Majority Leader.


Fast forward to CGI being awarded a $300,000,000 contract to design the ACA website; This equates to 2,000 people making $200/hr for 3 years! Really?? 2,000 people were working 40 hours per week on this?

To make matters worse, Obama "deceitfulness" is deemed one of the primary reasons for it's failure:

"By analyzing your income first, if you qualify for heavy subsidies, the website can advertise those subsidies to you instead of just hitting you with Obamacare’s steep premiums. For example, the site could advertise plans that cost “$0″ or “$30″ instead of explaining that the plan really costs $200, and that you’re getting a subsidy of $200 or $170. But you’ll have to be at or near the poverty line to gain subsidies of that size; most people will either not qualify for a subsidy, or qualify for a small one that, net-net, doesn’t make up for the law’s cost hikes.

This political objective—masking the true underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans—far outweighed the operational objective of making the federal website work properly. Think about it the other way around. If the “Affordable Care Act” truly did make health insurance more affordable, there would be no need to hide these prices from the public."
