Doing the Obamajobs That Obamamericans Won’t Do…

Governments hiring aliens with H1-B visas for tech work on Obamacare:

Some state governments are willing to hire offshore IT service providers to work on healthcare IT projects under controversial contracts that don’t bar use of temporary foreign labor, or workers on H-1B visas.

Two multimillion-dollar government healthcare IT projects, one in Illinois and the other in the District of Columbia, illustrate what’s going on.

In Illinois, Cognizant was awarded a $74.1 million contract in June to upgrade the state’s Medicaid systems to meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare.

In January, the District of Columbia awarded Infosys a $49.5 million contract to develop a health benefit exchange and replace its Medicaid and eligibility systems.

  1. Hmmm, and we don’t already have enough problems with foreign IT “specialistsor a ” in this country. Have you ever tried to get IT help for one of your many electronic “toys” lately? It’s hard enough to understand those people when they’re trying to explain how to fix the glitch in your printer…just imagine how hard it will be to get help when you need to schedule a colonoscopy.
