 Talk about throwing good money after bad. The number two Democrat in the House of Representatives wants Congress to allocate additional funds to Obamacare to help fix the failed exchange websites.

The Washington Examiner is reporting

Asked Tuesday how Congress could help improve the system by which millions of Americans must buy insurance by the end of the year, the House minority whip and Maryland Democrat said, “We can give them a little money.”

“[Republicans have] been pretty much focused in the House of Representatives on undermining the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in every which way that we possibly could,” he said.

Hoyer admitted that he does not know whether the project, which has already cost more than $400 million, has faced funding problems. “I don’t think that’s the reason,” he said. “If I know that, I’ll blame it.”

Depending on your source the United States has already spent between $400 and $600 million dollars on this failed website (vs. a budget of $93 million) there is little chance of the House of Representatives spending any more money on this turkey.
