Meanwhile, figures released Thursday say the total cost of the deeply flawed website and healthcare exchange has topped $1 billion, according to a devastating new report by a widely respected government

How? A surge in government spending on the Obamacare exchanges before they went live pushed the price paid to top government contractors over the $1 billion mark, The Hill reported, quoting the new study. The report released Thursday by Bloomberg Government analyst Peter Gosselin says that federal spending ramped up in the months leading up to Oct. 1, with $352 million of the $1 billion in federal contracts to the top 10 Obamacare contractors awarded during this

And this is why that "kook" Ted Cruz wants it defended.

No accountability, no oversight, and the costs are astronomical.

Blame a want, Rex, Decatur, spidertuba, and the rest of the liberals still full on supporting this disaster.

re: Obamacare website costs up to $1 billion


nice! some other fun numbers:

quote:

Three years ago, the CBO estimated that the exchange's fiscal year 2014 outlays would be $15 billion. That has since been raised to $24 billion—a 60% jump. In 2010, the law was estimated to cost $337 billion for fiscal year 2015 through 2019. The CBO has raised that to $420 billion.

In 2010, ObamaCare's revenues for 2014 were estimated at $57 billion. That has dropped to $42 billion because Mr. Obama waived the employer mandate, along with its $2,000-per-worker fine for companies not providing insurance.


kinda doesn't work Mr. President when people don't buy into your scheme .. and even if they did you can't create a functioning apparatus.

Yet I'm certain the entire scheme will come in on budget.

They'll still support it. They don't give a shite. It's not their money, it's someone else's.

Even according to Obama's own numbers there will still be tens of millions of people with no insurance a decade from now. They don't even care that the law doesn't do what was promised, and cost billions upon billions more than it was supposed to. They'll make excuses and blame Republicans.

That's $1 billion now, problem is it still isn't working. I would imagine the fix would require additional $$, no?

Forward!!

$650M before they brought in a "tech surge" of the best and the brightest? We'll be lucky if it isn't $1.5B before its all over. For a website. 9 zeroes. For 1 website. No porn.

I thought the lights going out in a Super Bowl would be the biggest epic fail on a big stage. Until this.

What kind of bizzarro world DO WE LIVE IN when Ted Cruz, Lee and Rand are the kooks? I mean c'mon seriously?

I swear to God Obama could go on live TV;light 3 trillion dollars on fire while he says he is a planted AQ double spy terrorist. As he also declares his 72 virgins god is great in perfect arabic and his followers that post here would still defend him.
