Hundreds of millions spent on “consultants” and “executive leadership” who will “further operationalize the exchange”
According to public data compiled by Americans for Tax Reform, the Obama administration has spent a minimum of $4.5 billion in federal taxpayer dollars on state Obamacare websites. The money was funneled through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), a division of the Kathleen Sebelius-run Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
That is not and would not be acceptable in the pro-corporate fascist world of politics and business.

We'll still have insurance companies.
They'll just be backed by the government now. They'll be the "face" of government.
If they cared anything for that, the US wouldn't be sitting with the single highest Corp tax rate on Earth, which we are.
It looks like it would have been a better idea to just implement a single-payer system. That would have made more fiscal sense than this disaster we are now witnessing.
We're paying all this money so that the government can force us to send more money to the insurance companies......sad indeed.
