The government's Obamacare website (Healthcare.gov
) has come under well-deserved fire the last few weeks for being quite a mess, the estimated $600 million price tag on the website coming with an ocean of glitches and other issues
earlier adopters have been struggling with since launch. As part of the President's effort to get the website working again, an anonymous source tells USAToday
that Verizon will be among those brought in to help get the website working properly. "Our team is bringing in some of the best and brightest from both inside and outside government to scrub in with the team and help improve HealthCare.gov," an HHS blog post said on Sunday in describing a "tech surge" planned by the government to resolve issues.
