Company behind Obamacare website in charge of nearly $2 billion in Sandy relief
By Allison Coyle | October 26, 2013
GI Federal Inc., the mastermind behind healthcare.gov, is assisting the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the distribution of $1.7 billion in relief for Hurricane Sandy.

Additionally, they are asked to aid in the implementation of the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program, an assistance program that had recently obtained $1.7 billion…
The Associated Press revealed Tuesday that a mere $700 million of the $60 billion federal aid package – 1.2 percent of the total funds – has been given to victims of super storm Sandy.
Nearly a year after the devastating storm, a majority of the 24,000 families that have requested monetary assistance have yet to receive a penny from the federal aid package.
There have probably been ‘glitches.’

Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni…
But it’s almost certainly just a coincidence. The Obama administration has carefully eschewed even the appearance of any cronyism.
