Do you need more proof that government is inefficient?: Just 4 failed Obamacare state website exchanges cost a total of at least $474 million to set up

I don't see how it is possible to set up websites that cost so much money.  The amusing thing is they don't even know exactly how much these four websites will cost.  From Politico:
Nearly half a billion dollars in federal money has been spent developing four state Obamacare exchanges that are now in shambles — and the final price tag for salvaging them may go sharply higher. 
Each of the states — Massachusetts, Oregon, Nevada and Maryland — embraced Obamacare, and each underperformed. All have come under scathing criticism and now face months of uncertainty as they rush to rebuild their systems or transition to the federal exchange. 
The federal government is caught between writing still more exorbitant checks to give them a second chance at creating viable exchanges of their own or, for a lesser although not inexpensive sum, adding still more states to HealthCare.gov. The federal system is already serving 36 states, far more than originally anticipated. . . .

It's like a Mel Brooke's movie.
It would be extremely funny if it weren't so damn tragic.
I used to think that we should move toward impeachment - now I think that that might trigger a false flag event and formalize our post constitutional status in a big way. Better to placate Obama and hope to God he goes away in 2016. And, maybe pay attention to the background of his replacement so as not to ruin the country even more than Obama already has.
