The Finger Pointing Begins … ObamaCare Website Contractors CGI Federal & QSSI Blame Obama Administration for Fiasco


All for one and one for all, never mind, scratch that.

Its ever man for themselves as the finger pointing begins as who is to blame for the Obamacare website rollout disaster. ObamaCare Website Contractors, CGI Federal and QSSI, are firing back at the Obama administration and saying they are to blame for the website debacle. The blame game has begun; however, in the end the buck stops with Barack Obama and his signature piece of legislation. HHS secretary Sebelius was in essence the project lead and was responsible for the contractors work was up to snuff. Obama is in charge of Sebelius. So no matter how anyone wants to deflect blame from Obama, this is on him.


This is why you never allow someone unqualified to run a country … And you voted him in twice, good grief!!!

Principal contractors hired to build the ObamaCare website are hitting back at the Obama administration for the site’s overwhelming technical problems.

Executives from CGI Federal and QSSI—the site’s main contractors—are among four companies testifying before the House Energy and Commerce Committee Thursday on the glitches.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “serves the important role of systems integrator or `quarterback’ on this project and is the ultimate responsible party for the end-to-end performance,” CGI’s Senior Vice President Cheryl Campbell said in prepared testimony, according to the Associated Press.

“No amount of testing within reasonable time limits can adequately replicate a live environment of this nature,” she added.

Campbell also said, according to The New York Times, that all of CGI Federal’s work was done “under the direction and supervision” of the Centers for Medicare ad Medicaid Services.

The report notes she blames “another contractor” for customers’ problems creating secure password-protected accounts, but didn’t identify the group.  The Times said government records show QSSI had that responsibility.

Andy Slavitt, who represents QSSI’s parent company, said he also blamed the administration for the late decision to require consumers to create accounts before they could actually browse health plans. That change, he said, contributed to the overload.

Congressional Hearings on problems today.

      word is that the ostupid care website is so elementary that even the dumbest of hackers can steal your life history without even trying.
      also Sebelius will not be terminated because she instituted what obamacare was designed to do. FAIL ! within 18 months the democrats will be running around with their hands up crying “obamacare isn’t working” . it is all planned folks.
      we will then have obama’s single payer health system installed and we will all be forced to go to the government for insurance wich will be worthless as is obama himself. hide and watch folks, this was all planned. you don’t see any of them in any sort of panic do you ? they know what is going to happen. CLING TO YOUR GUNS AND YOUR BIBLE FOLKS, YOU WILL NEED BOTH !!!

      This is more cover up of incompetence.

      Someone with knowledge needs to examine the design documents and the time line of the project management team.

      Co-ordination of a multiple layer contract is not a task for a beginner.

      This is a very scary law. You have to surrender your personal information to sign up. The site breaks down after you are about 15 minutes into the process. Where did my personal data go?

      You can’t keep what you have and you can’t sign up for an “affordable” plan. What did we get for Obama’s $500,000,000. They should have given each of us $1M and said good luck. Why was a Canadian company used if he is preaching Americans need jobs! It is insanity!
