HUH? Chief Obama IT Officer Henry Chao Testifies that 60 to 70% of Obamacare Web Site Still Needs to Be Built … Payment & Accounting Systems Have Yet to be Built


OK, I am officially speechless, this is worse than an EPIC FAIL  … This is a complete and unmitigated Clusterf*@k.

After 3+ years, some where in the range of $400 to 500 billion and growing, President Barack Obama, HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius, CMS and the Obama techies allowed the Obamacare website, to go live and according to testimony today from Chief Obama IT Officer Henry Chao, 60 to 70% of the site still needs to be built? Not fixed, but built!!! As reported at NRO. the payment, back office and accounting systems of have yet to be built. How is these even conceivable?

Under Construction

The information-technology systems of Obamacare are still anywhere from 30 to 70 percent unfinished, an administration official testified today.

Admittedly, the answer from Henry Chao, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services deputy chief information officer, in a House hearing today isn’t really clear. At one point he seems to indicate 30 to 40 percent of the information-technology system supporting the Obamacare exchanges is unfinished; at another point it sounds more like he’s saying 60 to 70 percent. But the news is stunning either way: was launched with some massive parts unfinished, and they are still unfinished.

It would appear that The Politico’s initial estimates were wrong. To be honest, I do not care if the number is 40% that still needs to be built. As Q and O stated, this is mind boggling. Amen brother, it actually might go even beyond that. Even with all the “glitchy” issues that have marred the roll-out of the website, no one that testified bother to ever mention? Really? Folks, I am a healthcare project manager and data analyst by trade and it is simply beyond the realm of all things possible for anything like this to occur. Unless it was intentional.

So let’s clarify what was testified to, the payment and accounting systems still need to be built. That means that Sebelius and Obama allowed a web site to go live to the American people where the Obamacare law forced Americans to purchase health insurance and a law that booted individuals off their current private insurance policies, even if they liked them and wanted to keep them, and no one can actually pay for a policy. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Folks, you are not enrolled in Obamacare until you pay your first premium. That has to be done by December 15, 2013 in order for an individual to have coverage effective January 1, 2014.

I guess we now know why Team Obama wanted to count the policies in one’s cart as enrollment. I would dare say that there are no actual enrollments in the federal exchanges, it would be impossible with no payment system in tact. This defies all logic. Even Barack Obama and his Chicago gang cannot be this ignorant. One actually has to go out of their way to be this colossally incompetent. I cannot see how this site will be fixed by the end of November a promised by Barack Obama. I also cannot see how the accounting functions can be completed by December 15.

But do not fret America, Obama can fill out a NCAA Basketball bracket like no body’s business, much to the admiration of a gushing media.

      This is what happens when incompetents are in charge of something. Especially when they have never worked a real job in their life.

      There should be an investigation regarding how the contracts were awarded, who was responsible for the overall system design and where the money went. Five to ten million should have been sufficient to build the system.

      No more than ten people should have been responsible for the basic system design. After a thorough review, it should have been put out for bid for the actual work.

      This is a classical government mess. A law with 2300 or more pages aught to be fed for lunch to all those socialist idiots who voted for it.

      this is easy. Valerie Jarrett’s relatives were given these contracts without even being checked out to see if they were competent. i’m sure she took in a load of this money for herself.
