The House’s top investigators want to know if the Obama administration made a political decision to get rid of an online tool that would have allowed uninsured Americans to comparison-shop among private health plans on the federal Obamacare website before registering for an account.
They cited committee briefings with CGI Federal — the lead contractor on HealthCare.gov, which channels Obamacare traffic from three dozen states — as the catalyst for their suspicions.
“Although CGI officials were not able to identify who within the administration made the decision to disable the anonymous shopping feature, evidence is mounting that political considerations motivated the decision,” Mr. Issa and four other committee Republicans said in their letter to U.S. Chief Information Officer Steve VanRoekel and Chief Technology Officer Todd Park.
“Many IT experts have suggested that the decision to disable the anonymous shopping feature contributed to the failure of healthcare.gov on October 1, 2013, and in the weeks that have followed,” the lawmakers said in their letter.
According to the Washington Post, just days before the scheduled launch the Obamacare website would crash with only "a few hundred people" on it. "It crashed after a simulation in which just a few hundred people tried to log on simultaneously." Nevertheless, the site launched.
Well, I heard they put the anonymous quotes back in...and sure enough, I went there today to see if it were true.
You can get prices before you apply.
But, the prices are vastly cheaper than you would be paying...unless you were 27 or 50.
See, you get two options: one is under 45, the other is over 50.
So, I check the price of a policy I KNOW the true value of....it was nowhere near what I must pay.
What most may not know, is that your premium goes up each and EVERY year for you...sometimes as much as 40$ per month.
Sticker shock is still gonna happen
