Big Red Car here. Another beauty in the ATX. On Earth as it is in Texas.
Obamacare, love it or hate, is the signature legislation of President Obama’s tenure as President. You would think that the administration would be doing everything possible to make it work perfectly. Right?
Let me introduce you to the Obamacare website scandal. You will likely not like what you are about to learn. Sorry.
The administration has had 3 1/2 years — the same time it took the Americans to wage World War II and grow the military to over 13MM men and women in strength — and still the core of the program does not work.
The freakin’ website at the core of the program does not work.
The administrator did not hire a bunch of software engineers to develop the site, they hired CGI to do it.
CGI is a French Canadian company — really, Big Red Car?
Big Red Car, no American companies know anything about web design, huh? Seems odd, no?
Old Sport, it seems odd and ill advised to the Big Red Car. Why not an American company to design a website?
The initial cost was to be $93MM — $93,000,000. That is a lot of money for a website, Big Red Car. Yes, Grasshopper, that is a lot of money for a website.
The final cost — well, really, the current cost — is $634,000,000. Whoa, Big Red Car, that is a massive overrun. WTF, Big Red Car?
Yes, WTF, Old Sport? WTF happened?
Does it work? Please tell me it works like a champ, Big Red Car!
Well, here’s the really troubling thing, Old Sport, the damn thing still does not work. We have paid $634,000,000 to a bunch of French Canadians and the damn site still does not work.
Who hired CGI? Have they been fired?
Who authorized a cost overrun from $93MM to 634MM? Have they been fired?
How can you really spend $634,000,000 on a freakin’ website? Even one that does not work.
Who is being held accountable for this mess?
Would you trust this bunch to run the government?
Anybody could have built a flawed website for way less than that, right, Big Red Car? Obamacare website scandal. Can you trust anyone that incompetent? No sayeth the Big Red Car.
