    Certainly it's racist to even notice this.
    Ain't that the truth.

    Re: Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare

    I don't know anything about this company, except that many here want to scapegoat Canada for a failed American federal government program. I'm a firm believer in the old saying "garbage in, garbage out". Until someone definitively shows that this company was A) negligent, and/or B) didn't do what HHS and Obama officials asked them to do, I'm not prepared to slag them.

    The blame, as far as it goes, lies entirely with the government and its agents who set the parameters and details of the system they wanted. In fact, much of the complaining seems to be that people are being asked for far too much personal information simply to inquire about prices of options and they're getting bogged down before they can even get in. Who do you think demanded the need for all this detail to enter the site? It wasn't CGI.

    They didn't deliver a working website for the 55 million dollars they were paid to do it.

    If you bought a computer from Dell and it wouldn't turn on, would you also blame the government?

    Absolutely right ... the Canada complaint escapes me.
    The contractors coded what they were asked to code.
    Including the "no reasonable expectation of privacy" text and the requirement for full enrollment just to get prices, as you mentioned.
    It's not just those initial intrusive requirements.
    Your point about the innards of Obamacare is the ultimate point ... it's much more than the pieces not fitting with each other.
    This thing is really really bad and should scare the crap out of anyone who learns about it.

    Re: Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare

    So this thread is about how a lot of successful people went to Princeton?

    Oh, no, it's really about making unsupported allegations that somehow Mrs. Obama overcome all the bidding processes we have for government contracts and gave a Princeton classmate the job.

    Conservatives are that desperate and foolish looking.

    Let's file this in the rightwing "I hate the black first lady" meme cabinet

    600 million to create a website? Does it really cost that much to create a high traffic website? What am I missing, that just blows me away.

    Not what I heard but I could have heard wrong. You have any way to verify this?

    No, I wouldn't, but I wouldn't blame Dell either if I told Dell to put a whole bunch of crap in the computer that made it inoperable.

    Pssst: the $600M figure is a rightwing talking point. Debunked. False.
