Who is infatuated with Obama-fever other then the democrats? The OP.
The call centers are located in California. One in Concord the other is in Fresno.
Obamacare California call center prepares for influx of 4,000 calls a day
This is the number for the California exchange. In Illinois they most definitely outsource to India. We are talking about the national number. Are you trying to sway opinion with false data?
While everyone debates the policy points of ObamaCare, few understand that billions of dollars in IT contracts are wrapped inside the law. To meet federal mandates, states must upgrade their legacy Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS). These IT contracts are some of the largest awards in state history.
Last week, Illinois Governor Patrick Quinn became national news for circumventing a three year procurement process on up to $190 million in no-bid IT contracts. Now we find that one of the largest bid-contract MMIS awards will outsource state jobs to India.
In June, Illinois Governor Patrick Quinn's administration awarded a ten year $71.4 million staffing contract to Cognizant Technology Solutions. Cognizant ranks in the national top 10 for procuring H-1B visa workers. Evidence shows that the company is staffing operational headquarters in Chennai and Bangalore, India for the Illinois work.
In the case of ObamaCare implementation in Illinois, H-1B workers are replacing state employees and other state positions are being outsourced to Cognizant facilities in India. If this saved taxpayers money for better outcomes, Governor Quinn might have an argument. But at $218K of spending to replace $50K Illinois state jobs, it doesn't look that way

The thing is, that I would welcome info that either proves or disproves the outsourcing of the call national centers, as long as it is accurate. It could even end up being that they use both domestic and International resources. I have extreme disdain for purposeful lies, pulling the wool over ones eyes, and propaganda.

I can't say this with absolute certainty, but I'm in Kentucky and three new call centers have just opened up near me. They are rumored to be call centers for Obamacare. Not going to promise that is the case, but I was told this by someone who should be in a position to know. Doesn't mean that some of them haven't been outsourced. Just throwing in my 2¢.
