Two is a start. At the rate at which they’ve wasted money, it’s going to be a lot more than that. It’s a shame that we can’t get an investigation of the mother of this boondoggle.

A second state Obamacare exchange is under federal investigation in as many weeks.

The inspector general’s office for the Department of Health and Human Services reportedly told Maryland Republican Rep. Andy Harris that it will proceed with an investigation into how Maryland’s Obamacare exchange spent copious amounts of federal grant money in the face of its failing exchange.

Oregon’s Obamacare exchange will also be investigated by the General Accountability Office after a separate request from House Republicans.

“Maryland officials ignored early warning signs and chose to waste and abuse federal taxpayer money by opening up what they knew was a flawed exchange to the public,” Harris said in a statement Monday.

The website crashed on day one and has continued to face technical problems ever since.

If spending ridiculous amounts of money a broken site while lying about how well it works gets Maryland and Oregon investigated, where’s the investigation of Healthcare.gov?

    Ha!
    And that’s before mentioning the involvement of Michelle’s old friend with the (disastrous) company that got this contract. But hey, that’s how third-world, crony-capitalist juntas roll!

    Well, the advertisement picture in the article above is true, it states; “Quality health coverage is now within your reach…” They’re telling the truth, but when you “reach out to grab it” you should be able to hold onto it as yours? But, they did put in in reach, you just can’t have it yet! Kind of a “waterboarding” tease if you ask me, drip drip drip.

    A federal investigation of Obamacare spending? That’s like Marion Berry investigating the DC crack trade.
