One would have thought given how terrible the Obamacare rollout was that CGI (the company which designed the website for the program) would have been run out on a rail by this administration. Even despite the fact that one of CGI’s senior executives was Michelle Obama’s roommate at Princeton. Healthcare.gov was a cluster-you-know-what for the ages.
One would be wrong however.
The IRS it appears decided that despite the incompetence shown (and the wasted tax dollars) with Healthcare.gov the well connected company deserved yet another juicy federal contract.
Seriously, is it just still amateur hour 6 years in with these guys, complete corruption, or a mixture of both?

“This is proof that the administration learned nothing from the failure of the rollout of the Obamacare website,” he concluded. “It means nothing has changed.”
Dave Williams, president of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, a Washington-based advocacy group told TheDC, “This is absolutely incredible. How does the federal government contract with the same firm that messed up the Obamacare site? It boggles the mind.”
