HealthCare.Gov developers tell Congress crucial tests were shirked

The Obama administration waited until the last minute to test the main Obamacare website and refused to ask for a delay when hiccups arose, government contractors testified to Congress on Thursday as they tried to explain why the rollout of the insurance exchanges has been so rocky.

Executives from lead contractor CGI Federal and three other vendors who worked on told the House Energy and Commerce Committee that the federal agency in charge seemed to have assembled a flawed puzzle from the intact pieces they provided, and didn’t go through the months of testing that should have accompanied such a complex system, they said.

“We didn’t see the full kind of integrated end-to-end system testing that you’re talking about until the couple of days leading up to the launch,” said Andrew Slavitt, an executive vice president of the company that owns Quality Software Services Inc. (QSSI).

The messy rollout is forcing Democrats and the Obama administration to reconsider enforcement of the law’s individual mandate, which requires most Americans to get health insurance.

Late Wednesday, the White House said it will not penalize anyone who attempts to sign up for coverage before March 31, a shift from the initial deadline of Feb. 15, and officials have vowed to work around the clock to clean up problems with the website, which is the main way for consumers to purchase insurance on the health care exchanges.

    with all of the unemployment in this country you would think the Democrats and their union scum would have required an American contractor??? This bs is as bad as the latest of teaching libyans to fly and nuclear technology. The Muslim Monkey can piss off the entire world except the main stream media and his obsequious minions.

    Looking and listening to these employees of we taxpayers I am unimpressed. The man with the odd head made a statement absolutely ridiculous when asked “did you attempt to get on the site” he responded “yes, I did,
    the other questioner said” were you able to do it “, the employees said “I was able to get on a but could not get a return e-mail, as it was supposed to do” which led the questioner to say “then it really didn’t work, did it?” and the dolt said quietly “no it didn’t”
    The site did not work when checked and these fools did nothing and our government House members didn’t challenge them sufficiently in my mind.
    Now we taxpayers are going to be charged 100 times more for the fix then it should have cost to do it right the first. We should close down the company and sell the assets if they cannot reimburse us at twice the costs.
    Stenny Hoyer a democratic House Member said in a smart alec way” well we will just have to spend whatever is necessary to fix it” What a blank check, these Congress people are the true dolts and we should fire every one of them.
    Pelosi echoed that sentiment “well we just must fix it” who cares about the money.
