She fell on her sword, dramatically, but carried on valiantly in the now typical Obama Administration style ["I did not know 'that' happened; I do not know "why"; what happened before--doesn't matter, we just have to fix it;] Shades of Hillary Clinton and "What difference, does it now make"... that four brave Americans were murdered in Benghazi.....we just have to find out what happened and fix it. (Can you imagine four more years of that excrement!?)
The rest of the three hours was an exercise in a fierce Democrat defense of incompetence, and in most cases a much too polite [with two notable exceptions] Republican attack.

Questions I would have liked answered: [As a battle scarred veteran of military system contract procurement processes].

Ms. Secretary--What is your authority for the award of a non-competed contract to a single source, FOREIGN [Canadian] contractor? Please state the US Procurement regulation(s) that permit this.

What is the HHS definition of the term "GLITCH"?

What were the contracted for provisions for subsystem test and integration testing of all subsystems? Were they properly documented and conducted, and thus, did the Contractor deliver a proven system which met all operational requirements? If not, why was the implementation date not delayed, until the system was PROVEN to perform according to specifications?

Was the Contractor fully paid as though it met all of its requirements for a fully operational system? What after-the-fact monetary recourse does the USA have for improperly disbursed payments? Who is responsible for having approved such disbursements? How will such payments be recovered, so that redesign, repair, modification and retesting may be paid for?

Does HHS plan to demonstrate to the people of the USA, that the [fixed] System works without flaws or breakdowns, BEFORE the new operational date?

Dream on, folks.................................................

LBC--Thank You

The better question is, IMO--WHEN WILL THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES DO THEIR COLLECTIVE DUTY, AND ISSUE A BILL OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST THIS POTUS!!??

Being a betting man

Give it 6 months, seriously, when the democrats are publicly talking sense, instead of Obamese. I have to wonder what discussion is taking place in confidence with the democrats. especially the HOR s.

Now being in construction management, if I had 3.5 years to plan, execute, monitor and test a single building system before letting the public occupy the space and I opened the doors to something along the lines of this Health Care package I would be humiliated, embarrassed, and run out of town.

Not so with this guy.

Back when Jesus was a carpenter, if you built a house for someone, and it collapsed or failed, the contractor was executed, so only good ,skilled, knowledgable, contractors went into the field.

Not so with this guy.

The Left

Remember this fact my friends, those on the left, never allow things like the truth or facts to ever get in the way of their rhetoric.
