Fixing the Obamacare website to get it ready to handle a second round of enrollments will cost the federal government $121 million, according to Accenture, the contractor hired to repair the glitchy website after the original contractor, CGI Federal, was fired in January.

The deal, which Accenture announced on its website Tuesday, costs more than the $93.7 million it took CGI Federal to build in the first place.

It’s also $30 million more than the government projected for fixes just a few months ago, when it called in Accenture on an emergency basis to try to keep President Obama’s signature domestic law on track.

“There doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel for Obamacare website expenses,” said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, California Republican.

It is simply amazing that the country continues to accept this behavior.

As long as the SNAP cards continue to scan, the Obamaphones continue to dial, McDonalds stays in-stock on McNuggets, and the NFL has games to broadcast every Sunday, they are likely to go right on accepting it.

Hannity recently had two PROFESSIONAL web site developers on his TV show. He asked them both how much they might have charged to construct a secure web site that functioned as necessary from the git go: Their TOP figure was around $10 million!!

That's much more than one well respected US IT firm offered to do the project for: THEY'D HAVE DONE IT FOR FREE!!

Compare those to the estimated $1 BILLION this SOB has shuttled to his cronies for this turkey and I think even the most devoted obozo worshiper can grasp the magnitude of the CORRUPTION in this on-going CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE!!! (Well that's almost certainly an overstatement...)


ANSWER: On their computers checking their numbered Swiss accounts to be certain the proper amount was deposited!!!!

IF THIS DOESN'T PISS YOU OFF you aren't paying attention and you're certainly too stupid to vote.

We need an angry electoral tsunami to sweep away the parasites on the Potomac and replace them with regular, everyday, COMMON SENSE citizens who have READ and UNDERSTAND the CONSTITUTION!!

Anything short of that and we're TOAST!!

PS: Did I mention the TRIALS and PUBLIC HANGINGS for the guilty??
