Here's some more reality for them to bump their noggins into:
The exact cost to build Healthcare.gov , according to U.S. government records, appears to have been $634,320,919, which we paid to a company you probably never heard of: CGI Federal. The cost was expected to run “up to”$93.7 million – still a chunk of change, but nothing near where it ended up.
AND IT DOESN'T WORK!
"...only one in five people were able to log on without running into a technical roadblock..."
This from a website that has cost three times as much as anticipated at a time when the administration was defending Obamacare from renewed attacks by the GOP in the midst of a government shutdown and a default crisis.

"The White House has released only a few numbers: There have been 20 million visits to the website and half a million applications submitted. How many people that represents or how many have successfully enrolled in a plan is unknown, and officials are not expected to release that data until mid-November."
LOL ... oh, the mid-term elections :)
