almost universally seen as a disaster. But that doesn’t mean the
contractor behind the fiasco can’t still gorge at the federal

From Fox News:

CGI Federal Inc, the company that created large parts
of the error-plagued ObamaCare exchange website, which it says it
is scrambling to fix, has recently been awarded several other
government contracts.

Since the ObamaCare exchange website launched on Oct. 1, government
officials have signed at least five different agreements with CGI
totaling $7 million, according to USASpending.gov, a government
website that lists government contracts. The contracts were for
computer and software development at the Department of Health and
Human Services, the Department of Commerce, and the Environmental
Protection Agency.

Meanwhile, Democrat Senator Barbara Mikulski, who is not up for
re-election until 2016, said in a hearing that the rollout of
Obamacare has created “fear,
doubt, and a crisis of confidence
.” Obamacare may
also be to blame
for CNN’s recent abysmal ratings and the
doctor shortage Obamacare is helping exacerbate
could in turn
exacerbate Obamacare’s problems.
