    3-400 million bucks on a website for Obamacare, closed up today having signed up ZERO people.

    Now they will join the federal system, but don't know if those that signed up on paper will have to resign.

    Of course the state blames Oracle, the site builder, for ALL the problems.

    Yep, the dollar figure is all of a sudden down a hundred mill or so from what has been reported for months.

    I think the whole landmass quaked with joy when the liberal gov. announced our wonderful system - all the liberals (majority in state) were shuddering with excitement :)

    Few officials have resigned but none held accountable - as usual.

    So Oregon should sue Larry Elleson and get the money back. Honestly what were you guys thinkin ...a couple of high school geeks in the parents basement could have designed a workable program....400 million is nuts. Tell ya what, we can arrange to have Chris Cristy flown out there ta straighten you out. Just feed him and keep him away from bridges...:thumbs:

    We saw a news story of two kids that DID set up a federal website in two days that seemed to be functioning.

    Christi in OR? Ummm we probably need him, we need a bridge to WA, OR put up half the money, Feds were putting up a bunch but WA wouldn't fund their share after several years of studies and prelims. That is okay since the present six lane bridge that is so totally inadequate was to be replaced by a new six lane bridge - of course it had light rail and pedestrian! Why these politicals keep getting elected is beyond me!
