I never get tired of reminding people when the President promised that his health coverage reform would save us jillions and jillions of dollars by eliminating waste, fraud, and unnecessary amputations — and then linking to stories like this one:
An internal investigation into how the federal government awarded contracts for developing and building the Affordable Care Act’s most important public element — the online exchanges that were to be used by millions of Americans to purchase health insurance — has found the process was flawed.
The investigation showed that The Department of Health and Human Services failed to conduct background checks on prior work by companies awarded many of the Obamacare contracts and failed to require those same companies to be accountable for cost overruns, leaving taxpayers on the hook instead.
The report published Thursday by the Office of the Inspector General for HHS concludes those mistakes cost taxpayers more than $400 million in unexpected costs — essentially doubling the expected cost of building the exchanges in the first place.
Honestly, anyone who bought into Obama’s promises, or who continues to parrot the “good news” that ♡bamaCare!!! “is working” is probably too stupid to breathe unassisted.
