I can barely put 2 pieces of code together but Ill bet I could have made a website which enrolled at least one person at this point. Well I could have hired someone anyway. Oregon couldnt even do that.
Rep. Jason Conger, the other Republican on the panel, says officials in charge including executive director Rocky King, who left his job in December, should have known better than to try to pull off a project of this scope without hiring an IT contractor to run it. I think it reflects a certain amount of arrogance that it could be done in the timeframe, that it could be done at all, Conger said.
But others on the panel tried to emphasize the positive. Democratic Rep. Mitch Greenlick suggested it was time to move forward saying ,Were trying to get things solved and I think trying to find out who is the bad guy is probably over.
Yeah no reason to find out whos to blame for this massive waste of other peoples money. That was then. This is now. What does it matter?
But Oregonians did get this really cool promotional video for Obamacare. And I mean that. Its pretty cool. Not $300 million cool. But cool.

None as in nada?
Hy, what difference does it make?
$300 million WASTED! Are there not Oregonians that are mad as hell about this sheer waste, not withstanding getting their Health insurance ruined or cancelled??
When the military wastes money on missiles and readiness and stuff (/s), the outcry is that the money should have been spent feeding the hungry children or some such.
Libs did it.
With a population of 4 million, figuring a typical family of 4...
That is $300 per family, down the tubes. Thrown out the window.
If Oregon taxes at 5% of income, an Oregon family would have had to earn with their hard sweat $6000 in gross income to pay for that $300 to be shredded.
“Were trying to get things solved and I think trying to find out who is the bad guy is probably over.
You know...before we clearly identify one.
You don’t understand! For a Liberal, the only thing that matters are the good intentions! To try to judge success or failure on actual RESULTS is mean!
The Oregon site is proportionately far more expensive than Healthcare.gov. The feds spent a bit more than twice as much as the silly little state of Oregon on their non-functional web site.
It’s pretty obvious that there is massive money laundering going on, and some Democrats are well stocked with cash for upcoming campaigns.
I paid $125 for my ecommerce site. and Just paid $100 to get the postage calculators working. maybe i should run obamacare. If i were running it i would make sure it didn’t work but would have a private alternative.
None through the Oracle-developed website except for some journalist accounts that were done at a dog and pony show to demonstrate how well it "worked".
But many enrollments through paper applications.
This was a federal grant. Everyone paid for it.
300 million was intended to pay off criminal ops during past elections and to support fellow commies in the senate race.
The master of disaster still on the job.
Happy to say I’m from Oregon, “from” being the operative word.
‘From’ and still stuck in Oregon, I’m formulating a post that demonstrates what an unmitigated disaster this is.
However, I’m completely at odds with how to address the unbelievable ‘inattention’ this is getting from conservative media and Republicans; I just don’t get it.
I’m extremely busy and hope to have something middle of the week...if somebody else doesn’t actually do a story on the broad picture first, metaphorically-written with a very, very sharp pen...
The prisons should be bursting at the seams...full of all these crooks. Disgusting.
One of ‘em’s running for reelection...
In the real world...every single elected guy...Republican or Democrat...would be thrown out of office in the next election. But, sadly, this is not the real world.
And the $300 million? It’s as if it never existed. In some Twilight Zone...
It wasn’t their money. It was from Obama’s stash. Why should they care?
HOW IT WAS SUPPOSED TO WORK Once upon a time in Obama's Utopia, tolerant compassionate Democrats kindly conferred cheap affordable universal healthcare on us American who are total scum.
Even though we are all rank cowards on the subect of race, for the first time, we undeserving misogynist, racist, homophobic Americans were going to have our health needs taken care of by our benevolent government.
Kindly Democrats (who despise the 1%) conferred cheap health benefits on all of us Americans, not just those intolerant greedsters with money (who create all the jobs that make the economy run smoothly).
Benevolent Democrats in Capitol Hill offices dreamed of millions of formerly uninsured Americans, and their illegal brethren, marching in lockstep to the polls to vote for kindly Democrats---the givers of all good governmental things.
Kindly benevolent Democrats would sail to electoral victory b/c they stood up to the evil insurance-medical-industrial complex on behalf of us cowardly, undeserving Americans.
Peace, happiness and universal well-being would reign over the land.
And we'd all live happily ever after.....even with astronomical deductibles, drug rationing, and I-PAB Death Panels looming in the distance.
O/CARE---DIRECT FROM THE MADOFF FLIM FLAM PLAYBOOK
Skyrocketing premiums, ruinous deductibles, impossible co-pays......none of it was ever mentioned when Democrats marched in lockstep to foist this scam on Americans. The Obamatons dreamed up a bunch of oily phrases that would put Madoff to shame:
<><> O/Care is"freedom"---not being tied to employers' health care.
<><> millenial subsidizing the elderly is "Individual shared responsibility".
<><> the unforgettable "we're going to aggregate the numbers" penalty (WRT employers forced to downsize to escape onerous O/Care mandates).
<><> Speaker Nancy Pelosi's laughable we'll find out what's in it when it becomes law.
Obamacare is a total misrepresentation, sold with broken promises. Saving costs was a big one. In 2009, the Congressional Budget Office set the net cost of Obamacare at $599 billion over 10 years -- citing a gross cost of $848 billion less $249 billion in tax revenues and other cost savings.
But recently the CBO revised the 10-year price tag to more than $2 trillion. Economist Jonathan Gruber, the father of Romneycare -- which was the template for Obamacare -- recently admitted that well, no, costs will not be going down. "Covering people with health insurance doesn't save money," said Gruber. "That was sometimes a misleading motivator for the Affordable Care Act.
BTW, the law isn't designed to save money. It's designed to improve health, and that's going to cost money." So, Obamacare won't save money, but at least those too poor to afford health insurance will now lead healthier lives, right?
