    Do you think there should be an investigation of

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has already been investigated for solicited funding or assistance from the health care industry to help implement the health care law. What about how she spent over $500 million for the failed website. Just where did that money go? Hmmmmmmm?

    There should absolutely be a very in depth investigation into where that money went.

    Was the company who received the contract to develop the website the cheapest bid, someone's relative, or payback for some favors or campaign contributions.

    Was the company even qualified to handle this large project?

    It would be interesting to see who owns the company that was hired, and who they are connected with in politics.

    I smell something that has the faint odor of corruption, but I could be wrong.

    I would like to see a detailed billing and those charges compared with the charges for the same services from other companies.

    But of course, this one will just join the list of other "Phony Scandals" and nothing will get done.  That money is long gone and we will most likely have to pay some other company to actually make the website work.

      tsadjatkoposted 5 years agoin reply to this cost taxpayers an estimated $500 million and yet doesn’t work after three years of lead time. The Mars Pathfinder (a complex technical undertaking) cost $150 million and was developed in less than three years. It also actually worked.

      I would bet my best pair of boots it was a different company who worked on the Mars Pathfinder.

      Old Poolman  - guess you are not surprised that Sebelius has refused to be questioned by congress. What a pathetic administration we have.

      I didn't know she had refused to be questioned.  In fact, I didn't know that being questioned was optional for government employees.

    This is another example of the Obama administration's incompetence?  Their letting of bogus contracts and dishing out grants to companies with spotty records is atrocious.  Heads need to roll from Sebilius on down and Obamacare needs to be repealed so we can devise something that makes sense instead of volumes of government regulations, taxes and excuses from Obama.

      I'm sure Sebelius will be punished - look for her to be promoted. She can suffer with the other perps at DOJ, the IRS and State Department who were promoted for incompetence + !. They have turned the  peter principle into the perpetrater principle.
