Three 20 year olds make a website that does what does.

Oh wait, doesn't actually work, does it? So I guess the trio actually beat them to it.
While the Obamacare website still remains broken, three 20-year-old programmers have shown the government how it should be done. 
Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser developed a site in matter of days - and it does things the expensive and faltering can't do. 
From a San Francisco office the men have built, which presents the Affordable Health Care Act data in a much simpler way to the government website.
This is what I've been railing about for the past forever. You don't need to spend $290 million to create a website that does what Obamacare is supposed to do. You don't need 10% of that. Google, Microsoft, Ebay... none of them drop 290 million on code for one iteration of their web site.

This is the dictionary definition of waste. You thought health care was expensive before? Just wait til it's free, as they say.
