AUSTIN, Texas  – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) called on President Obama to detail the total expected cost for the updates necessary to make the Obamacare website functional.

“The roll out of the Obamacare website was exactly what its supporters predicted – a train wreck. To try and clean up the mess, President Obama is calling up a tech surge to overhaul the website, and sending the bill to the taxpayers.

“The taxpayers have already shelled out hundreds of millions of dollars to build the original website. How much more money is President Obama going to demand? Instead of continuing to pour money into this broken law, it’s time to issue a permanent delay and work on solutions that provide real health care reform, rather than broken promises and error messages.”
