Head Of Oregon Obamacare Exchange Resigns For Personal Reasons And Because The 160 Million Dollar Website Didn't Successfully Sign Up A Single Person, But Mainly Because Of The Failed Website.

The head of the Oregon Obamacare exchange resigned just this week. The state spent $160 million dollars on the website and didn't hit their targeted numbers, assuming their targeted numbers were greater than zero.

It was Lawson, chief information officer at the Oregon Health Authority, who decided the state could manage the complex exchange project itself, rather than hire a private-sector systems integrator, a decision since criticized by her superiors. Lawson also was close to Oracle Corp., the California technology giant that has been blamed for doing shoddy work and repeatedly missing deadlines.

Nearly three months after the federal deadline for a functional health exchange website, Oregon’s exchange has emerged as a technological train wreck and a PR nightmare. The state has paid more than $160 million and a fully functional site remains weeks — perhaps months — away.

State officials have been forced to spend even more money gearing up a massive system of temporary employees and contractors to manually process paper applications for health insurance.

Oh and she made $178,992 a year. Everyone should work for the government, they over pay and don't expect results.
