Posted on 04/26/2014 6:52:20 AM PDT by Cheerio
MSNBCs Chris Hayes called the now defunct Cover Oregon website the biggest Obamacare train wreck in the entire country Friday on MSNBC.
Today the state gave up and called for help on what has to be the biggest Obamacare train wreck in the entire country, he said. Oregon became the first state to dump its own troubled online health exchange and use the federal marketplace instead. Oregon spent $248 million of $305 million in federal grant, including $3 million on this cool ad campaign.

Funny they will never mention that part.
I call Obamacare the biggest Obamacare train wreck in the country.
Imagine if they gave every state a few hundred million dollars....
If the Courts rule that subsidies for those in the federal exchanges are against the law, Oregon is going to be double pissed.

Exactly what Obama and the rest of the RATS wanted all along; “single payer”!
Fine, but don’t dare think that any of the leftists in Oregon will now think that Obamacare is a bad idea. It’s far more likely that this means to them that the all-powerful Federal Government is doing a better job than the state government, which they believe is as it should be.
My grandkids, yet to be born, will be more than happy to pay for all this.
If you want to see the TORTURE that the people in Oregon went through because of Obamacare, watch this:
What’s the latest on the court case?
Things must be behind schedule. The intent of Obamacare is to get ALL the states to cry "Uncle!" and turn to the feds.
Oregon makes Maryland look like pikers.
Maryland only wasted $90 million on their Obamacare websiteb before abandoning it.
Democrats suffer from Dunning-Kruger Effect which basically states that stupid people are too stupid to realize they’re stupid.
100’s of millions here 100’s of millions there ,Obama gave out stimulus money to states in the name of health care and they wonder why donations to the Demonut Party are up
A leftist would spin it to mean that the Federal Government is there to save the states from their foibles and petty politics.
Time to vote democrats out of office...
You're right - that part is never mentioned...
Which was just for the 'start-up'. After a few years, the States have to pay for it ALL.
Isn't that like trading in a rusted-out Chevy Vega for a Yugo?
How can a state be given 300 million dollars and not be able to build
a functional website is beyond me. But there again, it wasn’t that long ago
Oregon was still counting votes by hand.
With the kind of money they’re spending, they could give each US citizen a $ million and just get rid of these programs.
What no refunds of the taxpayers money that was given to the LIB crony-capitalists? These criminals should be in prison. Where is an Attorney General with integrity and a good forensic accountant with same?
Soooo—Where is the remaining $57 million going to end up?
How many Democrat pockets are going to be bulging??
Obamacare fail bump for later.....
Imagine if they didn’t take the money from people in the first place, imagine if this money went to scholarships for poor kids to attend private schools, imagine if they stopped spending our money on all kinds of boondoggles like Amtrak and farm subsidies,.... and I could go on and on and on.
Not that I am upset that Obamacare keeps failing.
But I just don’t understand how an exchange fails. The concept is so trivial — you do bids from insurance companies to meet a certain standard, and those that agree, you offer them all on a simple online interface.
Companies used to do this all the time, offering different insurance to their employees. And there are a dozen excellent examples of online purchasing sites.
Heck, there are car insurance websites that do exactly this job for car insurance, rather than health insurance. How much would it cost to just pay one of them to provide the service? Certainly not $200 million dollars.
We build jet planes that keep our country save for less money than Oregon spent on a web site to sell insurance from 3rd parties. How is that possible?
Obama gave Oregon $305 million of taxpayers’ money to build its defective Obamacare website that enrolled zero people. No one will get punished, fired, or prosecuted for this scam.
How will they deal with this one? Donald Sterling’ a liberal elite - his hatred is that of a ‘superior’.... He probably has the same contempt for conservatives....
