Major Obama donor wins emergency no-bid contract to fix Obamacare website

October 31, 2013

  As if it were not bad enough that we learned last week a college pal of Michelle Obama is a Vice President of the company which was contracted to build the Obamacare website we are now learning in this story that the Vice President of the firm which won the no-bid contract to fix the website is a major contributor to the president.

But a review of campaign and fundraising activities by a key executive associated with the general contractor for the surge, Quality Software Services Inc. (QSSI), raises substantial concerns regarding the appropriateness of awarding a no-bid “emergency” contract to a firm associated with over $1 million in donations to President Obama.

Jeffery Zients, former acting director of the Office of Management and Budget was appointed on October 25 to oversee a team of tech experts to repair HealthCare.gov. Mr. Zients said QSSI, a unit of United HealthGroup Inc.’s Ovum, was retained on an emergency basis to work with federal agency Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services, to get the website running smoothly for most consumers by the end of November. 

Anthony Welters, Executive Vice President of UnitedHealth Group, and his family have gone all out to back President Obama’s ambitions. During the 2008 election cycle, his wife Beatrice bundled donations totaling between $200,000 and $500,000 for Obama’s campaign. In 2009, the pair was among the president’s top inaugural donors, contributing $100,000 and bundling an additional $300,000 for the events.

  Talk about not letting a crisis go to waste, even a crisis which the president created–in this case he used the crisis to take care of another Democrat donor. But Anthony Welters is not the only one in the family that Barack Obama rewarded, Beatrice Welters now serves as Ambassador to Trinidad.

  Didn’t Barack Obama promise to end this type of cronyism?

    Verizon-101million customers serviced on a seamless system, Google, Amazon, e-Bay, etc, their servers handle tens of millions on a daily basis. If we subscribe to the Obama`Jarrett Doctrine these companies should be nationalized to better meet the customers needs more efficiently. Meanwhile the Obamacare websites’s batting average is lower than the bad news bears; but who cares?

      All these websites get millions of hits a day and they run just fine, it goes to show you how inept the government is at running anything.
