Outsourcing? Doesn’t America need jobs and...well...programs that work?
ObamaWare for CrapCare.
Exporting CanadaCare to America. Where are barriers to trade when you need them?
Were the Cuban exchange companies too busy to help?
“And remember: when you shop, buy american!”
Heard that recently..makes me laugh in light of this info.
I have no interest in defending Obamacare or this software company, but there is no one Canadian health care system. There are separate systems in every province that are supposed to run according to federal guidelines (called the Canada Health Act). There are also separate systems for the northern territories, the military and diplomats — a total of 13 separate systems, I believe. The federal government only legislates health care standards; it does not actually manage any of the provincial systems. Individuals and companies do not sign up with any federal entity, and doctors, hospitals, medical labs et cetera do not directly receive any money from the federal government.
Now why would they hire a consulting firm with expertise in single payer systems to design and deliver a syatem that uses complicated exchanges? And one to be used by a population 10x that of Canada? Great laser focus on American jobs, too, President Obama. Although to tell the truth, my initial conclusion when they rolled this piece of non-working crap out was that it was built by employees recruited by “quota.”
Obama would ONLY do this with al Qaeda/MB in charge.
Follow the money (except no one in DC cares a whit).
I wonder if that is the same company that built Canada’s long-gun registry — you know; the one that was supposed to cost a few million but ended up costing BILlions... And lost unknown thousands of data records...
Only a Liberal Free Trader Communist would support and cheer for such a foreign system.
Economic Anti-Americans just being Economic Anti-Americans
I wonder what American companies bid on this contract? And I wonder how their pricing compares with CGI's.
The government is foolish if they did not build in milestones and penalties to the contract. (I assume they did not as it is not mentioned in the article.)
Okay now we will try the landline # 1-800-318-2596 listed above or 1-800-318-2596 = 1-800-FAU-CKYO.
Ted Cruz could not have picked a better time to call a halt to this mess.
