It's possible.  How much is it, at the moment?  $500 Million?  $300 Million?

One of the firms that was hired to help build it was paid $150 million.

Guess what? QSSI has been re-hired to fix it. How much will they charge to fix it?



http://nypost.com/2013/11/01/obama-donors-firm-hired-to-fix-web-mess-it-helped-make/
A tech firm linked to a campaign-donor crony of President Obama not only got the job to help build the federal health-insurance Web site — but also is getting paid to fix it.

The insurance giant’s purchase of QSSI in 2012 raised eyebrows on Capitol Hill, but the tech firm nevertheless kept the job of building the data hub for the ObamaCare Web site where consumers buy the new mandatory health- ­insurance plans.

QSSI has been paid an estimated $150 million so far, but officials couldn’t say how much more the company might collect on the ­repair contract.

That is pretty accurate.

The 600 plus is a joke.

From ABC News:

"The administration has not provided a final cost of the website, although some estimates place it between $500 million to $600 million."

HealthCare.gov Ducked Final Security Requirements Before Launch
CBS News ^ | 11/4/13 | CBS News
Posted on November 5, 2013 1:30:29 AM EST by Lmo56

CBS News) WASHINGTON -- The health care website went down again Monday for an hour and a half, and no one is sure why. It's being taken offline on purpose every night from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. for repairs. Millions are still having trouble buying insurance on it, and it turns out that even when the website works, it may not be secure enough to protect privacy.

As HealthCare.gov was being developed, crucial tests to ensure the security and privacy of customer information fell behind schedule.

CBS News analysis found that the deadline for final security plans slipped three times from May 6 to July 16. Security assessments to be finished June 7 slid to August 16 and then August 23. The final, required top-to-bottom security tests never got done.

The House Oversight Committee released an Obama administration memo that shows four days before the launch, the government took an unusual step. It granted itself a waiver to launch the website with "a level of uncertainty ... deemed as a high (security) risk."

I have no doubt the government spent that much on a fucking website that doesn't work.  Not shocking at all.  That would be pretty typical. 

It wouldn't be the first useless crap they put out for sure.... DHS... TSA.... ATF... on and on... All mostly jillion dollar agencies chasing phantoms or making shit up as they go along.

I agree.  Stunning that anybody who has either worked in govt, visited the DMV, VA, etc...  would think they are capable of handling this.

yea seriously...  This is the way our government does it:

Obama:  I won now what?

Jerkoff under Obama: I dunno... we tell someone under us to make it happen.

Obama:  Make it so number 1!

It gets passed down... and the same conversation happens at a lower level and on and on until nobody gives a shit and nobody is sure who to blame for it not happening right.  fucking lol but totally true...
