HEADLINE September 24, 2007:

To claim that every contract awarded to CGI since 2010 is associated with Obamacare is ridiculous...AND, the $515 million figure doesn't even exist.
CGI Medicare/Medicaid Services contracts since 2004:
November 4, 2004 -$100 million for technical solutions and support for several CMS component areas. Including support for the medicare.gov Web site.

October 7, 2008,$15 million award to maintain and enhance services contracts for Medicare & Medicaid Services over 5 years.
February 2, 2009 -$25 million over five and one half years for the continued development and implementation of the Medicare Appeals System (MAS) to support legislatively mandated appeals processes for traditional Medicare Fee-for-Service (FFS) and Managed Care (MC).
March 17, 2009 -$135 million five and one half year contract for the Medicare Advantage & Part D (MA & Part D) Maintenance and Enhancement Services contract by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for five and one half years.
In May 2010,$73.2 Million five year Contract to "CONTINUE its modernization, application management, and maintenance efforts on three external websites that provide information to 44 million beneficiaries and millions more healthcare providers and other stakeholders."
The three websites affected —Medicare.gov, cms.hhs.gov , and MyMedicare.gov .
January 12, 2011 -$55 million five-year "task order"
to continue software development and operational support services for the Provider Enrollment Chain Ownership System (PECOS) including Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) registration and attestation functionality.
May 24, 2011 $5.7 million to advance the support FHA’s CONNECT Nationwide Health Information Exchange (NHIE) Gateway Solution.
May 31, 2011 -$44.9 million eight year contract renewal with Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Public Welfare to provide support for preventing, detecting, deterring, and correcting improper payments.
December 1, 2011 -$93.7 million contract to build the U.S. government’s federally-facilitated health insurance exchange The contract has an estimated total contract value of US$93.7 million over a two-year base with three, one-year option periods. The US$55.7 million base contract has been awarded.

Yes and the article I quoted noted that most contracts since 2010 are somehow related to Obamacare which your figures confirm.

Hey dummy , Americans are not dissatisfied with the two-party system(they want more participating parties like the Greens and libertarians becoming more involved), but they are disgusted with the tea party controlled GOP trying to force their lame-ass radical agenda to cut the social safety net to shreds and end Obamacare on to the table--which is never going to happen because only 15% of Americans would approve (just a little more than the zero turn-out for the big 'anti-government Truckers and bikers protest that fizzled before it started in Washington D C last week) So, get over it, republicans lost on Obamacare because Americans see big ,good things for them in the opening of the new Obamacare healthcare exchanges,especially as big corporations are continuing to cut permanent jobs, hire more temps, and cut wages and health benefits for the smaller ,permanent labor staff left and retirees. Obamacare was a Godsend to get passed just in the nick of time as the country is transitioning into a Task Rabbit economy of low-pay, few benefits, temporary services laboring force.

Weirdly, you're taking the exactly opposite position that Ted Cruz and the republinutz argue that the economy has improved considerably, American government revenue is higher now then its ever been(thanks to republicans conceding to Obama's modest tax hike request on the wealthy ($250,000 and up class) and the across-the-board sequestration cuts in government spending from military to veterans to students, to women health to parks maintenance , etc.) So, Cruz argues that a delay in raising the debt ceiling isn't that crucial because the federal government has enough to cover the interest now. So, which is it? Is the national debt getting 'worse'(which would call for more emergency borrowing (raising the debt ceiling) or is the national debt becoming more manageable under Obama's economic policies of balanced cuts to waste and inefficiency and more spending on domestic national infrastructure and healthcare?

You keep repeating that. Does Whatever give the orders, or do you??

You keep trying to avoid the fact that Repugnants have lost the shutdown battle to Obama.

They're desperately looking for a way to surrender that saves face.

I guess I'd do the same if I had supported the losers.

Carry on, whatever puppet.

Wouldn't be necessary if people would stop trying to obfuscate.
Example-
The American people don't like Obamacare
The Left-
here is a poll about Republicans
here is a poll about the shut down
etc.
None of these things change the fact that Americans don't like Obamacare.
lol! Nothing about what you said changes the fact it's simply your opinion.

BTW, still can't support your 44% claim son?

interesting how you apply your rules so selectively!!!

She takes a beating here every day.

That's why she changes the topic in discussion.

I say the military overthrew Morsi.

She says the pepole were unhappy.

I didn't know street demonstrations warranted a Military Coup. That's what McCain and Lindsey Graham called it.

She doesn't like Democracy. She only supports it when her side wins.

Military Coups are ok in her book!!
