Price Tag for Obamacare Website Repairs Jumps To $121 Million

After shelling out $677 million to build the federal health care website, the government will spend an additional $121 million in 2014 to repair it—$30 million more than previously estimated—the Washington Times reported last night. This comes just as the Obama administration is starting the hunt for next year’s diverse group of contractors.

CGI Federal, the original lead contractor awarded $93.7 million, was replaced by Accenture this past January. Accenture received an initial payment of $45 million—an amount that was supposed to double by year’s end, according to the Washington Post. But yesterday, Accenture Federal Services announced their final agreement of $121 million for work through January 10, 2015.

The search for Accenture’s successor has commenced, and the administration has some specific criteria on its applicants’ gender, race, and socioeconomic status. From the New York Times yesterday.

They probably could have hired some middle school teenage hackers for a couple of thousand and had it fixed a long time ago.

How stupid are we as a people to believe and allow the government to spend this kind of money fixing a website? Can people really believe it's going to cost that kind of money to fix?

They could have hired Amazon's or Home Depot's webmasters.
