Feds Say Cost To Build Just The ObamaCare Website Has Swelled Top $1.7 BILLION

Only the federal government could find a way to spend $1.7 billion on a single website that has been plagued with problems since day one.
The federal government issued sixty contracts from 2009 to 2014 in efforts to build Healthcare.gov, the federal insurance marketplace. According to a report issued today by the inspector general (OIG) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the government had already paid out just under half a billion dollars by February 2014, five months after the beginning of open enrollment. The government is already under obligation for another $300 million, and the estimated value of the sixty contracts totals $1.7 billion.
