WASHINGTON — Almost a full year after the disastrous and botched rollout of the health care law known by many as ObamaCare, Reuters reported that a White House tech team aims to fix the struggling website infrastructure.
But is it too little, too late?
It has gotten worse in some states, like Maryland, having to turn to other states to fix their IT issues. Maryland actually scrapped their website and paid Connecticut to use their infrastructure.
The highly unpopular health care law, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, continues to drag down Obama’s approval ratings and the prospects of his Democratic Party during this 2014 midterm election season.
“The new team, which has requested $20 million in next fiscal year’s appropriations and hopes to expand eventually to about 25 members, seeks to apply the same kind of private-sector technological expertise that helped save the healthcare website to help fix problems and improve the accessibility of other federal websites, such as recreation.gov and irs.gov.”
