With just days to go before open enrollment ends on March 31, Maryland officials are reportedly planning to abandon its glitch-ridden ObamaCare website and replace the health exchange with technology from Connecticut’s marketplace.

The Washington Post reported late Friday that the board of the Maryland exchange will vote on changing the system that has cost at least $125.5 million at a meeting on Tuesday, the day after the end of the first enrollment period under ObamaCare. …

There’s no decent excuse to have legislated these government-run faux market exchanges to begin with—let alone spend the billions and billions that have been wasted on them and not considering the total disaster of Obamacare, of which they are part.

Just an all-around, all-too-intentional disaster.

No sympathy. Maryland is deep blue and the voters there deserve this.

I know that the software technology from Washington States’ exchange (which does work) would basically be non-portable to any other state’s implementation, except for elements of the front end, because it is so tightly interwoven with the state’s proprietary DSHS and existing Health Care Authority databases. Better to just commission the developers to write a new one mostly from scratch

“No sympathy. Maryland is deep blue and the voters there deserve this.”

Absolutely true, but these idiots won’t recognize the error of their ways until their state goes under ( or maybe their ration of beer and cable TV is cut off)!
And remember, Nancy Pelosi is from Baltimore, her father was mayor.

They just need more money to make it work.

Like trying to get a gasoline engine to run on peanut butter.

I cruised it briefly. Seems to work better than the BOcare site, but that isn’t saying too much :-)

Why spend 125 mill on a friend’s software firm when you can spend 250 mill and make two friends very happy?

Thanks to price controls and progressive taxation we soon won’t have any skilled doctors.

Thanks, socialists.

No one is held accountable for throwing $125 million ? Why? Because it mostly went to Leftists and campaign contributors?

Maybe they will, but it won’t pay their bills and feed them.

No prob! The chosen group has gotten its $125M-payoff from the Demonazicrats, so they can successfully stop the website now.

Yep. Don’t you just love the way the “journalists” and pundits are serving their masters by appearing to believe that the $125M was just wasted because of incompetence.

I would love for someone on our side to follow the money.

Please don’t tar all of us Marylanders with that brush. There are quite a few conservatives in this beautiful state, but our votes are negated by the heavily populated and voter-fraud riddles Demonazicrat strongholds like Baltimore and Montgomery County.

Of course, so they can launder and funnel more money through the Soros Administration’s friends?

Problem is your take is honest and logical, whereas this entire system is corrupt and was designed to fail
