    Which is worse, a 24 billion dollar shutdown that did not work or a 70 million dollar website that doesn’t work?

    Actually, neither! Always giving out governmental contracts to the lowest bidder is not always the best policy. As the old saying sometimes goes with a vengeance “You only get what you pay for!” Hopefully, the people responsible have learned a valuable lesson, and we can now move forwards. Hopefully….

    The problem is that government contracts are often decided based on politics rather than the based on the better product or value. We don’t get what we pay for.

    One congressman handed Sibilleouse a “Web Site for Dummies” book.

    Ultra panicsville for the 30 million who don’t have health insurance. Only 39 days to sign up, unless you don’t care then you have 5 months.

    The US government procurement process guarantees that all contracts go to the best experts, (according to the New York Times).



    (The best experts in navigating the US government procurement process, that is.)


    (Subject experts cannot possibly compete, nor should they be allowed to. The US government knows how to run its business to reward its friends, and that’s what government is all about.)

    Which is worse? It is the law itself that won’t work that is worse. The website is symptomatic of the problems coming with this monstrosity.

    Can you come up with a better idea for those one out of every six Americans (myself included) who have no health care insurance?

    I can. It’s called single-payer, universal health care insurance, which is considered a basic human right in every other industrialized nation on the planet.
    Only in America do we oppose such a thing, preferring to side with insanely-rich private insurance companies who further pad their immensely-fat wallets by trying to deny coverage whenever possible.

    You must be talking about how Michelle’s college buddy “won” the no bid contract for hundreds of millions of dollars, right?

    Maybe she should not have hired her room mate from college. Seems the firm is stuck back in the floppy disk days.

    Oh did you here Obama has given the same company that built the site an additional 7 million in contracts. Spend spend spend!

    You say that like it’s a bad thing.

    The Republicans have nothing since Pres. Obama took their idea. And when you criticize but have nothing to counter it you lose the argument.

    No the web site is symptomatic of under planning. Doesn’t mean the system itself is bad. Remember it was Capitalism that messed it up since they were govt people setting up the system.
