Report: The Obamacare Website Is Going To Cost You Billions

New analysis from a Bloomberg Government report revealed today that the Obamacare exchange website HealthCare.gov, has already cost American taxpayers $2.1 billion—and the feds say they aren’t finished building the glitch-ridden thing yet.

Bloomberg’s figures are much higher than those being pushed by the Obama administration.

The Obama White House’s most recent estimate on the total cost of HealthCare.gov was $834 million through February 2014. And Health and Human Services secretary Sylvia Burwell said over the summer that between May of this year through 2015, the total costs of HealthCare.gov would hover just above $1 billion.

“The way in which Obamacare has been rolled out has been very messy. One of the reasons it has been implemented in the way it has been, financially, is precisely to deny opponents of the law a clear target,” said Peter Gosselin, the Bloomberg study’s author.

Just last week, we reported on a billion dollar contractor that paid its employees to do nothing while they were supposed to be processing Obamacare paper applications.

Nearly five years after its passage, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is still widely unpopular. According to a Real Clear Politics average of polls, a whopping 53.8% of Americans still oppose Obamacare.
