Re: The answer to the HealthCare.gov problem is not in greater oversight . . .
Law makers like to think that having a central overseer would prevent fiasco's like HealthCare.gov, but even with OMB's PortfolioStat IT investment review process, and other system checks, OMB overseers still didn't catch the problems that arose around HealthCare.gov.  Oversight still won't compensate for contracting constraints and poor project management.
