States retaliate against ObamaCare website developers, halt payments

December 28, 2013

Several states that paid millions to set up ObamaCare exchange websites but got error-plagued systems in return are starting to fight back, halting payments to the contractors and weighing legal options.

The same contractor that shouldered a large part of the blame for botching the federal is also under fire at the state level, where the company had an array of contracts to set up local ObamaCare exchange sites. CGI Group is facing angry officials in Massachusetts and Vermont who are cutting off payments in retaliation for widespread website problems.

Massachusetts — whose government was one of the staunchest supporters of ObamaCare, and whose health plan arguably was the model for the law — is refusing to pay any more until a working website is delivered.

A spokesman for the Massachusetts exchange told that CGI’s system is “far from where it needs to be” and the state will apply “nonstop pressure” to fix the problems.

    I don’t know why this is such a big deal, this is how CMS/DHS operates. The number 1 requirement is that you meet the production delivery deadline, they will worry about whether it is working correctly some other YEAR. It is how they run their programs also. The number 1 requirement is to spend as much money as possible, they will worry about whether they people really qualified/had a need/were US citizens in some other LIFE. CMS/DHS is the American car company of the 70’s. THIS IS NORMAL OPERATIONS FOR CMS

    “I got a little curious about this so I did a bit of research. The first surprising thing was that although I knew that hospitals kill over 100,000 people a year due to medication error, the total hospital death toll from all causes is about 783,000. ( )

    This is a staggering number and makes our health care system a complete joke, particularly when you consider the cost of medicine in this country.

    I was curious as to the total hospital annual deaths in the U.S. in 1950 which was before desegregation got rolling. The population at that time was around 150 million and, as best I could determine, the hospital deaths were around 100,000. Today’s population is around 305 million, or about double what it was in 1950. Adjusting for population differences, hospital deaths today should be around 200,000/year. They are almost four times that number.

    If you read the link I provided, you will note most deaths are in medical subfields dominated by affirmative action employees. So hiring a bunch of unqualified ——- to provide various types of medical care results in over 500,000 needless additional deaths per year.

    Please tell me again what is so great about American health care. Tell me why we continue to hire the incompetent to care for us? Oh, yeah, political correctness, I forgot. The facts, figures and costs are clearly going the wrong direction for the people.”
