#Obamacare: Today’s winner of the “You’ve got your nerve” contest

"You're want what??"

“You want what??”

Only in the progressive-statist bureaucracy would a merit bonus be given for failure:

The head of Colorado’s state health exchange has asked for an end-of-the-year raise and bonus even though the website has enrolled fewer than half the people who were supposed to purchase health insurance through December.

Patty Fontneau, president and CEO of Connect for Health Colorado, currently earns $190,549. Her chief operating officer and chief financial officer earn $164,800 each.

The salaries are supported by taxpayers.

Fontneau received a $5,000 raise in 2012 and is eligible for annual bonuses of up to 10 percent with salary increases of 3 percent, according to documents from Connect for Health Colorado.

The CEO’s salary increase was discussed among the organization’s board of directors in an October executive session, and it has not yet been granted by the board.

By Ms. Fontneau’s standards, I suppose the head of Hawaii’s Obamacare exchange should be granted her weight in gold.

Maybe we could give them all gold participation stars, instead.

    Over the years I’ve worked for people who gave really nice Christmas bonuses;

    I recall one who gave a brand new employee, who’d been with the company 2 days $500.00 so he wouldn’t feel left out at the Christmas Party.. Mine was about 25% of my income for the year..

    And there was a cheapskate, who thought a $10.00 Kmart Gift Card was something special..

    Regardless, the surest way not to get a bonus was to demand one.. Traditionally that’s up to the employer, not the employee.. and If a company wasn’t performing up to expectations, there wouldn’t be a bonus..

    Hey, what’s all the uproar about? I’m just real sure these peoples’ intentions were good, even in the face of unjust enrichment, so THAT is what should count.

    It’s the Democrap way.
