Oblamer blames Republicans for the failure of the launch and a law thats still only about half written.

And I am sure that they will not require CGI to refund any of the 600 million for a failed product as would be typical in normal customer/contractor business practice. Probably too much of that money has found its way back to the DNC campaign accounts. What a racket.

Over a billion for the roll out of the failed website.
Accenture signs 12 month contract for 100 million.
Undisclosed amount for cost of repairs to other contractors to repair failed website.
Half trillion from medicare to help finance Oblame-Care.
Undisclosed amount spent in the 3 years leading up to the failed roll out.

Will we ever truly know the cost of this colossal failure to American tax payers for something they never wanted or supported?

I get almost giddy when I think back to how these right wingers were prognosticating and celebrating the end of the Affordable Care Act all because the website had predictable glitche... just too witness the stark contrast between early October and now with them bordering on depression (once again) as President Obama is celebrating the great news about people signing up in greater numbers then expected. But hey, it is the media's fault; if only the mainstream media was as dishonest as Fox News

So Obama is spending nearly a BILLION $ on a website, not health care, not for insurance, just for a website. On the bright side, you can find that the 'bronze' plan deductible is only $10,000 a year.

The Affordable Care Act is affordable (unless you use it). The IRS is there to help you (unless you pay taxes) The NSA isn't really collecting your calls and e-mails (unless you use the phone or internet)

No but you can presume millions coming back to Hillary in 2016 if she is stupid enough to run.

.Hillary Clinton ranks last on U.S.'most admired' list, behind Rush Limbaugh, Bush
By PAUL BEDARD | JANUARY 12, 2014 AT 1:56 PM

On the U.S. list, she does even worse, coming in 10th of 10 listed and most named. Among Americans, Pope Francis is the most admired, followed by the president, evangelist Billy Graham and former President George W. Bush. Even Rush Limbaugh, the nation's most popular conservative talk radio host, beat Clinton. He came in ninth.
