As I recall, Robert Bork said something about Affirmative Action destroying the country. This is just another sign of what we all know to be true. Our “leaders” are lining their pockets, and the pockets of their friends and family, with our money. When what we were paying fell short, they started stealing from our unborn children.

This is how LIBERALS shovel money to politicians - just as Michelle was given a high salaried job in community affairs at University of Chicago Medical Center, and Hillary was given a high salaried job at the Rose Law Firm.

Facts of life in the wonderful world of government:

Preferential treatment for minorities takes precedence over competitive bidding in federal contracting.

Costs and the likelihood of successful completion of the work are less important than meeting minority quota goals.

Maybe the case here, but the cronyism generally looks color-blind to me. There are certainly other areas where the genetic stereotypes seem to fit, but not sure about on this level.

Not only is it an insane price tag but it’s time to start filing charges against this b@#@#, and everyone else involved.

They were just sitting back stealing tax payer money all the while making sure we all paid out the nose for high premiums.

This isn’t some adjustment to the tax code making us pay a little more or gas finally hitting $4.00, they are blatantly trying to rip us off monthly cause of this turn of a site. For me, my costs would basically be a second mortgage— probably for a lot of people.

Impeach. Remove. Arrest them all!

Not confirmed but read this from a FB friend. Inside sources tell me that ...
Liberal CANADIAN MPP Bas Balkissoon’s son who married the daughter of one of President Barack Obama’s closest friends and advisers. LAURA JARRETT both work for the Obamacare website company!!

WELL RUMOR HAS IT THAT THEY BOTH..YES BOTH WORK FOR ....
CGI Federal Inc., the U.S. unit of a Canadian firm CGI Group

YUP... WE BELIEVE THAT’S HOW THE MONEY FLOWS BACK.... TO OBAMA AND JARRETT!

Tony Balkissoon, 29, a lawyer in the Windy City, married Laura Jarrett, also a lawyer, whom he met while they were students at Harvard Law School.

She is the daughter of Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama’s most influential advisers and a long-time friend of president who heads the White House office of public engagement.

Wow! That’s definitely a find, if true. It was obvious in the selection of this company that there was corruption involved in all of this, and I think it’s much more extensive than it appeared even at first.

I was just writing on another thread yesterday that my brother makes websites just like that for a living, he just finished one up very similar to Obamacare, a data site, and he charged I think it was $5000 and it took him a month with his partners and it worked perfectly when finished. Is that insane or what? $678 million to $5000 which is a good example of the difference between the government and the private sector. Over half a billion stolen from the taxpayers which is money that could be spent to help our vets.

Or, one million dollars could have been assigned to each and every citizen of the United States in personal health savings accounts (a republican plan), saving the nation a deep never ending fraud.

Above was put forth by Greg Bayer yesterday on on one of the Fox shows.

Maybe, maybe not.

This is just a single dot. Some dots connect to others, some don’t. Some connections are real, some are only coincidental.

But with this crew, one must always be suspicious.

Holy jeez what a great idea! Oh my God, probably one of the best I’ve heard all year. How much money does the Fedzilla waste on crap like this, not just websites but so much other crap? And a one time payment - a million each citizen (verified citizen) in a cannot touch health account - That’s it - Health insurance problem solved.

But they will never ever do that in a million years because we live under fascists on both sides - Democrat and Republican - who see the people only as serfs, slaves who must slave away for the Fedzilla so the Fedzillas can waste money how they see fit.

How about Pakistan?? Something like $14 BILLION given to them in the past 13 years and what did we get for it? A huge middle finger and the sheltering of our greatest enemy Bin-Laden.

I was just thinking the only problem with that plan is you get people whose health costs can far exceed a million bucks for example someone who becomes a quadriplegic ala Christopher Reeve and requires 24 hour care for life or someone severely brain damaged who requires 24 hour care. But still, the population is 313 million. Even if each person was given TEN million it would still be cheaper than what the Fedzilla is going to blow on this Obamanation care in the coming years. I mean look at this crap, right out of the starting gate and already they blew over half a billion.

Your post reminds me of a question I’ve thought a lot about. Who enforces the Constitution? At one time I read of a USMC group tasked with protecting the Constitution. If true these guys are AWOL. I can’t believe our Founding Fathers left our Country this vulnerable and the career politicians, many who never had a real job, have been anti Constitution and communists all along. If we survive we must eliminate politics as a career field.
