The troubled launch of has been costly for President Obama and Democratic supporters of the entire Affordable Care Act program, also known as "Obamacare." The difficulties surrounding the launch have spurred broader criticism about the federal government's management of major IT deployments. Estimates of the government's financial investment in the information technology associated with the launch of the health insurance program -- especially the Web portal -- vary from $70 million to well over $300 million, depending on which components are counted.
