    Bedingfield is the only one that made any sense.Those “enrollments” are not actually “enrollments” where a premium has been paid. They’re just sign-ups to private plans without confirmation of actual enrollment.

    With that in mind, one might imagine that it will take several hundred million dollars in order to salvage the database from this system while buying another system entirely from Deloitte, who built the Connecticut system. Of course, most of the original exchange database software and hardware can simply be converted to the new system to save taxpayers significant start-up costs, right? Wrong.
    Some of the hardware that Maryland bought for its system, such as servers, can be salvaged, but the software and coding that are the guts of its online marketplace will be replaced, said the individuals familiar with the decision. Only some of the hardware will work in a new system? Shouldn’t the web portal and database have been designed to be platform-independent? Maryland taxpayers had better brace themselves for
    another big bill. Thanks Democrats. But, hey – keep spewing your talking points.
