Finally! White House to replace
lead HealthCare.gov contractor

Washington Times, by Tom Howell, Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 1/11/2014 6:54:55 AM

The Obama administration plans to replace the lead contractor on HealthCare.gov, the glitchy federal website that hindered the fall rollout of the new health care law, with another company. Officials plans to drop CGI Federal, after the company took a share of blame for its role in preparing a website that serves 36 states and needed extensive repairs after its Oct. 1 launch, the Washington Post first reported. A major consulting company, Accenture, will take its place. CGI’s contract runs out at the end of February, and Accenture had built the relatively well-functioning health exchange that California is using to enroll people

On the surface this move seems reasonable, but rest assured some other crony will get the job and the one that was fired, since it was a big-arse buddy of Michelle´s, will get recompense from our tax dollars -- somehow. The Obama´s are good at spending our money on their friends and on themselves.

Now, tell me -- what will a properly-operating website do except to make enrolling easier for a plan that truly stinks to high heaven?

This entire O´Care bill needs dismantling, not electronic band-aids.

Now all the millionaires in the congress are readying their wallets for Accenture payments! BTW, didn´t we used to hate Arthur Andersen (Accenture´s CP firm) for their support of Enron? Didn´t the Fed´s destroy that firm and then find out they were wrong? How many AA partners are starving because of the Fed´s thereby destroying their pensions?
What a boondoggle.

The WH staffers must have watched people drawing comparisons between Christie and Obama and heard the applause for Christie.

Another nobid contract?

Where will the money be diverted from? Military benefits? Surely not Congressional or White House perks.

During the 3 1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing
Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and
Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced 151 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48
cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million
tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000
transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery
pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military
trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded
Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and
executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic
bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

It´s worth noting, that during the almost exact same amount of time, the Obama
administration couldn´t build a functioning web site.

Even from the incomplete picture we have, Obamacare is likely the most disastrous implementation failure in the history of information technology. For another contractor to walk in, understand the requirements of an impossibly complex law, pick through the mess CGI has made, and set all to rights, would be arguably miraculous. Things could just as easily get worse as get better.

Bets?

Why were such incompetents hired in the first place? What role did Obama and his wife play in the transaction? Was it simply a political decision with no regard for the magnitude of the assignment? Probably.

Oh yes the relative well functioning CA´s Cover Mexiforniaco exchange is a piece of art work that´s for sure. I just heard a TV news story that the CA Democrats are proposing covering CA´s 3,500,000 illegal aliens with Obamacare. Even though they are not allowed to be covered under current law. Also the story said that the Republicans are against this, of course. So the quick fix for this disastrous inequality is to pass urgently needed immigration reform to avert the healthcare crisis facing these poor people and their families, and get them covered right away. Finally a solution! But once again those hater Republicans are standing in the way. Republicans are hated more by the illegals in this country than the Nazi´s were hated by the Jews in WWII Germany.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
