Cronyism and affirmative action?



CGI, the firm hired by the Obama administration to develop the registry for ObamaCare, is a Canadian firm, Conseillers en Gestion et Informatique.

Their track record? Their first big project was for a Canadian firearms registry. Originally, the registry was estimated to cost $119 million, which would be offset by $117 million in fees. Instead, it ended up costing some $2 billion. Moreover, instead of having to have the capacity to register some 100+ million Americans for ObamaCare, the firearms registry was only supposed to have the capacity to register some 7 million long guns belonging to some two-and-a-half to three million Canadians.

I told my wife that when all is said and done, the Obama administration is going to make Boss Tweed look like the Girl Scouts.

A senior vice president for the company testified this week before The House Committee on Energy and Commerce that four companies submitted bids, but did not name those companies or explain why only CGI’s bid was considered.




The presence of Ms Obama's buddy helps explain why there was a no bid contract. I read that there were numerous companies qualified to bid. Ya gotta love that totally transparent administration, cronyism at its most ugly. :rolleyes:
