weaselzippers;Cost Of Website? Over $1 Billion BEFORE Oct. 1, Not Counting Money Thrown Into Fixes Since Then
Affordable? Not so much…
Via The Blaze:
Thank You Nickarama, The Blaze, and Weaselzippers.The to-date cost of the glitchy Obamacare website has topped $1 billion, easily surpassing the $394 million originally estimated by the Government Accountability Office, according to a Bloomberg Government analysis.It’s important to note that the Bloomberg analysis runs through Sept. 30, just before the 16-day partial government shutdown. So the final cost may be more than $1 billion.Perhaps more shocking than the site’s likely price tag is the fact that roughly one-third of that amount was spent on contracts awarded in the six months leading up to the site’s disastrous Oct. 1 launch – when those at the top were reportedly aware of the site’s many problems.
