On Wednesday night, Sean Hannity had two tech experts on his Fox News show to discuss the continuing problems of the Obamacare website. At the end of the interview, Hannity asked the experts how much it would have cost them to build a site similar to healthcare.gov that both operated properly from the beginning and was built secure to protect users’ sensitive information.
“I would say to build a site like this with the infrastructure, the architecture around it, you are looking at maybe $5 million to $10 million at a very maximum rate,” said David Kennedy, president of the technology firm TrustedSec. “It isn’t rocket science.”
“I would agree with Mr. Kennedy in the $5 million-$10 million range max,” Luke Chung, president and founder of the technology firm FMS, concurred.
“[N]one of these contractors are ever held accountable for delivering such crap,” he added.
