Once again, A Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) is a pre-competed, multiple-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract that agencies can use to buy total IT solutions. The $4 billion 2007 contract was a GWAC. "A GWAC allow agencies to issue task orders to pre-vetted companies without going through the full procurement process." The task within the GWAC itself are very vague and expanded later when the "task" is assigned.
I trust that you are not a complete idiot. Look it up yourself.

""They set up the website in such a way that too many requests to the server arrived at the same time," Hancock said.

He said because so much traffic was going back and forth between the users' computers and the server hosting the government website, it was as if the system was attacking itself...The site basically DDOS'd itself," he said.

it wouldn't surprise me if the site was designed to make it look like traffic was a lot higher than it actually was so the administration could claim the American people wanted it that bad.

The lying democrats too. ROTFLMAO--democrats done.
On Wednesday, CNN’s Dana Bash tweeted that all Senate Democrats up for re-election in 2014 will reportedly support a delay of Obamacare’s enrollment deadline.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), who is up for re-election in 2014, wrote to Obama on Tuesday and asked him to delay the enrollment deadline for the individual mandate.“Given the existing problems with the website, I urge you to consider extending open enrollment beyond the current end date of March 31, 2014,” Shaheen wrote to the president. "Allowing extra time for consumers is critically important so they have the opportunity to become familiar with the website, survey their options and enroll.”
On Wednesday, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), who is facing a tough challenge in his 2014 re-election against Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR), came out in support of Shaheen’s call for a delay of the individual mandate’s enrollment deadline. Pryor had previously been on record as supportive of the mandate as is.
Now, according to CNN’s Bash, the Democratic Party is coordinating an effort to support a delay in the individual mandate.
“new: senior dem source tells me to expect every sen dem running in 2014 to back @JeanneShaheen proposal to delay #ACA enrollment deadline,” Bash tweeted on early Wednesday evening.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is on record as supporting a one-year delay in the individual mandate as well, although Manchin is not up for re-election in 2014.
The Democrats' push comes shortly after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) recently launched a crusade against Obamacare. Cruz’s efforts and those of Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) showed the American people the president and Senate Democrats were unwilling to compromise on Obamacare, and the Democrats’ stubbornness resulted in a temporary partial government shutdown and a short-lived debt crisis scare.
Many Republicans, including the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), have been predicting for months that the Democrats would look for an Obamacare “escape hatch” ahead of 2014.

Don't worry it will be alright--isn't that what the democrat liberal loons have been saying for weeks. I say "Let it Roll". LOL--too bad so sad for these losers. They wanted it they got it and O'bama and the democrats own it.

Can you?

"An HHS source told The Daily Caller that the agency received four proposals out of 16 PRE-QUALIFIED bidders."

You should understand by now that those 16 pre-qualified bidders are the ones covered by the 2007 Contract. Geez you just plain stupid.

Ron Fournier, a National Journal columnist, on Tuesday compared President Obama's approach to the health care website rollout to President George W. Bush's handling of the Iraq War and Hurricane Katrina.

"Just like Katrina, when the big problem President Bush had was diminishing the significance of what was happening, saying ‘Hey, way to go, Brownie,’—you had the president yesterday talking about glitches and kinks. This is bigger than glitches and kinks," Fournier said on MSNBC, as quoted by Mediate. "The one difference was Katrina was a storm, the health care law was Obama’s creation."

Fournier then added, "Maybe the Iraq War is a better analogy."

No matter what we do, there will always be those who find a way to cheat the system. It's just the way it is. A fraud rate of 1.3% isn't bad when compared to the 4% rate of the 1990's or the 39% attempted federal income tax fraud of 2012.
I have no answer...just give them cash and be done with it.

Yes, I saw that and wondered how they would get around the 2007 contract. There are 15 other IT companies covered under that contract...could be they will approach them. Can't say how this works. It will be interesting.
you don't understand how it works.

"GWAC task orders can be issued in considerably less time than conventional open market procurements."

the Obama admin was lazy and used a contractor that was under contract, but was not required to use them.

Six voters in ten describe implementation of ObamaCare as “a joke,” and more voters than not say problems with the government’s health insurance website are so bad someone should be fired, according to a Fox News national poll.

The new poll, released Wednesday, also finds a majority continues to dislike President Obama’s signature achievement: 51 percent of voters use negative terms to describe the health care law, saying it is either “a step backward” or “disastrous.”

Now some Democrats on the Hill are talking about delaying Obamacare. Gee, isn't that what the Republicans just suggested?

Oct 23, 2013 3:42pm

Plenty of Republicans have piled on disapproval about the problems with the health insurance exchange website, but now many of President Obama’s own allies are joining the chorus of criticism with some Democrats even calling on the president to delay the law.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/10/...

What a mess. Everything Democrats do such as Obamacare where they can't even get a majority of public support or even a single Republican to support is a mess.

You fanatical Democrats (Socialists) will here disagree, but so what? You are radical partisans.

Socialism always fails and makes things worse. It's a Ponzi scheme.
