When government officials are caught in a web of deceit or corruption, the first couple of questions usually asked by the media and investigators are, “What did they know, and when did they know it?”
A story published this week by CNN answers those two questions, revealing that the president and his staff knew that the Healthcare.gov online insurance marketplace wasn’t ready to be unveiled at least a month before its official Oct. 1 launch.
As reported by CNN:
The Obama administration was given stark warnings just one month before launch that the federal healthcare site was not ready to go live, according to a confidential report obtained by CNN.
The caution, from the main contractor CGI, warned of a number of open risks and issues for the HealthCare.gov web site even as company executives were testifying publicly that the project had achieved key milestones.
