Obama's Big Dig In Massachussetts

Forbes is reporting:
The Associated Press has reported that the U.S. Attorney’s office has issued subpoenas to the Massachusetts Health Connector (the state’s insurance exchange). The subpoenas cover the period during which the website experienced major technical problems and mismanagement as the state transferred to an Obamacare (ACA) exchange under former Governor Deval Patrick (D-MA).
This action preceded a June Boston Globe report that the Connector has been covering 6,000 enrollees on both Medicaid and the exchange, and will spend another $47 million to address some of the remaining technical issues.
The Wall Street Journal editorial board is now calling this entire debacle, “Obamacare’s Big Dig.” This boondoggle is costing taxpayers almost $1 billion.
This story is important for these reasons: this is being reported by a) Forbes; b) the AP; and, the Boston Globe. That's across the entire political spectrum, from very conservative to very liberal. Many low-paid "navigators" are going to spill the beans.
