The contractor hired to fix the Obamacare exchange website announced last weekthat it would cost $121 million to get the site ready for 2015.

It is astonishing how much of our money this administration is willing to spend on the pretext of improving healthcare.

How many children can be treated for $121 million? How many people can have heart surgery; how many people can get their needed medicines?

The president said it would reduce healthcare costs, it would insure 30 million uninsured, and it would save the average family $2,500 per year. He also said people could keep their doctor and their plan. All of that was untrue.

We have been snookered and our money is being burned.
