The Obama administration has begun a wide-ranging search for companies to run the online federal health insurance exchange, seeking new talent to prevent a repeat of problems that immobilized the website last fall.

This sounds like a job for...
Bernard L. Madoff.
Only he can get anyone to believe they will get anything back for their money.
None of that realistic.
The only way to achieve your goal of including minorities is to stipulate a 5% workload to MBE/WBE’s.
There are no firms under you Boo Chit news release that have the size to do your project, under your pretend requirements...
Yup, a consortium of Merle’s Software and Bait, Millie’s Code Cabana, and assorted (read: diverse) small companies. That’s the ticket!
They omit "competence" as a qualification.
Me! Me! I could screw the thing up for well under $100 million!!
Wonder if you will have to use Internet Explorer to access the new sites?
Planning for failure.
I’m sure Google, Adobe, Amazon et al would love to get into that business and would probably do a great job. However, the administration can only pick ‘pay to play players’. Meaning kickbacks and political donations, back doors for US LE agencies the whole 9 yards.
Sen Reid and family are setting up shell companies as we speak to meet the stringent minority owned requirement.
Remember. It wasn’t screwed up, it was only minor glitches.
An affirmative action hire.
Well isn’t that just ducky !!!!!!
Yeah, I really want the economically disadvantaged running my healthcare exchange.
"We fixed the glitch."
Why would a given firm, operating on something of free enterprise, accede to an assignment that guarantees their freedom will be reduced consistent with their eventual absorption into the federal government?
It is not the website that is broken you stupid Obama people. It is the freakin law!
Turn it over to a Walking Dead of Affirmative Action hires.
Yeah, THAT’LL fix it! /SARCsarcsarcsarcsarcsarc
Jesse Jackson Jr is taking a course in programming while in prison... I think he would be perfect for the job, and is due to be released soon.
Minor glitches, I would have to up my bid to about $225 million. Flaming failure, that’s cheap!
Who’s next on the kickback list after Moo’s old college friend?
This is the most criminal administration in history. Commie criminals.
