Obamacare Website: Corruption or Incompetence? Or Both?

Unless you have been living on a different planet, you know that the rollout of the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov has been a total disaster. So far, only about 50,000 of the anticipated half million enrollees have been able to make it through the application phase of the flawed enrollment system.

The Obama administration initially paid $678 million of your tax money on a “no-bid” contract to the CGI Group, a Canadian firm, to create an Internet program to permit you to purchase your federally mandated Obamacare health insurance online. One might have expected the Internet access program to have functioned properly, since the CGI Group’s Senior Vice President is Toni Townes-Whitley, a Princeton classmate of First Lady Michelle Obama; frequent White House visitor, and Presidential guest at a recent White House Christmas dinner. Her husband, John Whitley, works for CBS News.

And to further seal the deal for the Canadian firm, Tony Balkissoon, Obama financial donor and son of Bas Balkissoon, a member of the Ontario legislature, is the son-in-law of Presidential Advisor Valerie Jarrett. George Schindler, CGI Group President, became an Obama 2012 campaign donor after his company won the Obamacare contract — a now familiar coincidence. And although the CGI group recently had a $46 million contract with the Canadian government cancelled due to poor performance, with such high-level credentials, who could possibly have anticipated a problem?

President Obama has now pledged that after paying untold, additional hundreds of millions more to this same CGI Group to fix their own problem, the Obamacare Internet site will be up and running by month’s end.

thehealthsherpaNever fear, American ingenuity to the rescue! Three young men, George Kalogeropoulos, Ning Liang, and Michael Wasser, stated that they, “Saw many individuals having trouble during the launch of Healthcare.gov and wanted to make a difference.” So over a recent weekend, without costing taxpayers a single cent, they rolled out an insurance enrollment website of their own: thehealthsherpa.com. It is different. It works! Try it, you’ll like it.

Just put in your zip code and it will pull up all the currently approved and available healthcare insurance plans from which you can make your choice. Here in Tennessee, Blue Cross/Blue Shield is the only approved choice, but thirty (30) different BC/BS plans are offered (North Carolina offers 28) and at varying costs. Then put in your age and approximate annual income, and it will calculate and show you the offsetting federal subsidies to which you may be entitled, deduct them from the regular monthly premiums for the various plans, and show your net premium costs. There are even instructions on how to purchase, should you wish to do so.

So what is the moral of all this? Federal cronyism, especially at the Presidential level, is very expensive, and it usually doesn’t work so well either.
