I was lingering over my breakfast coffee thinking how the latest revelation about ObamaCare would be treated by a press that saw every Halliburton contract as a direct Ka-Ching into Vice-President Cheney's pocket though he was long gone from that company. The failures of the Obamacare website came just days after its launch and after '"top White House officials were excitedly briefing lawmakers, reporters, Capitol Hill staff members and Washington pundits" about the "shiny new Web site that was elegantly designed, simple to use and ready."
It turns out the $678 million dollars spent on this mess was spent on a no-bid contract to CGI Federal, which, as the Daily Caller reported, is the company where Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton classmate of Michelle Obama, is a senior vice-president. Both women are members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni, Of course, I searched in vain for anything in the Washington Post about this development.
I could find a report noting that most of those who had enrolled were merely signing up for the federal Medicaid program. In Oregon 52 thousand people enrolled through the website, 100 percent of them for the Medicaid program, none for personal insurance.
The increased enrollment thus will only add to our federal tax burden and will not diminish it. This at a time when welfare recipients already outnumber full-time year-round workers. How much longer China will fund the Ponzi scheme known as the federal government is anyone's guess.
As a friend (Danube of Thought) remarked rather acerbically:
Five years ago 85% of Americans had health insurance, and close to 90% of them were happy with what they had. Of the 15% who weren't insured, roughly half were quite happy with their circumstance: they could purchase insurance, but preferred to spend their money elsewhere.

GOOD ONE from Clarice Feldman. Thanks for posting jaz.
It looks like she was hired about the time they got the contract. And about the time they bought Stanley.
Who knows what kind of back-channel communications were involved here. And with billions sloshing about, where some of it wound up.
Exactly...This type thing has Barack written all over it as well as Michelle this time.
Come to think of it this isn’t the first thing Michelle has been connected to.
The IG Gerald Walpin was fired for exposing corruption with a basketball friend of her brother in Sacramento.
Another product of Affirmative Action unleashed upon us.
