Democrat Proposes Spending Even More Money to Fix Obamacare Website

Healthcare.gov cost taxpayers more than $400 million, but it doesn’t work. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) admits that the funding the site ate up probably isn’t the problem. But he wants to spend more money on it anyway, according to the Washington Examiner.

Asked Tuesday how Congress could help improve the system by which millions of Americans must buy insurance by the end of the year, the House minority whip and Maryland Democrat said, “We can give them a little money.”

Isn’t that a Democrat’s answer to every thing? Education is failing — spend more money! There aren’t enough jobs — spend more money! Obamacare’s hideously expensive website doesn’t work — spend more money!

Only when it comes to national defense, do Democrats pinch pennies.

They could have brought health insurance costs down by allowing more competition and by enacting tort reform. Instead, they wasted a giant pile of money on a website that doesn’t work, and they want to spend even more money now.
