Obamacare hires new wetbsite contractor.

Obama administration to end contract with CGI Federal, company behind - The Washington Post:
(January 10, 2014)
The Obama administration has decided to jettison from the IT contractor, CGI Federal, that has been mainly responsible for building the defect-ridden online health insurance marketplace and has been immersed in the work of repairing it. Federal health officials are preparing to sign early next week a 12-month contract worth roughly $90 million with a different company, Accenture, after concluding that CGI has not been effective enough in fixing the intricate computer system underpinning the federal Web site, according to a person familiar with the decision who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss private negotiations.

Too little too late. but it's significant that the obvious takes far too long to become apparent actionable to Obama.

It's about time. Second time around will be a charm and Obamacare will run like a Swiss watch. We will all be happy and healthy, except for the old people.
