WASHINGTON - The heavily touted online federal healthcare exchange (Healthcare.gov) that got off to a disastrous start last week was designed by a team made up entirely of Obama minions, including the design manager for the president’s 2008 campaign and the White House Deputy Director of New Media.
Jessica Teal, founder of Teal Studios, was previously the Design Manager for the Obama 2008 campaign, according to records discovered in the course of a Judicial Watch probe. Teal’s other clients include Planned Parenthood, the AFL-CIO, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Emily’s List and other lefty groups.
Another contractor that worked on the Obamacare website is a firm called Development Seed, a Washington D.C.-based “creative data visualization and mapping team.” Development Seed’s General Manager, Dave Cole, was previously the Deputy Director of New Media in the Obama White House. He was also the data lead for the Obama campaign in Iowa in 2008.
The last contractor, Ed Mullen, of Ed Mullen Studio, doesn’t have a record of working on Obama’s political campaign but he wrote this on his website in 2011: “The practice of empathy seems to have been a central force in Barack Obama’s life for a very long time. It was certainly front and center from the moment he stepped onto the stage of the 2004 Democratic National Convention. His capacity for empathy allowed him to connect with a broad range of people. His recognition of an empathy deficit, and the public’s unquenched desire for a more empathetic world, gave momentum to the movement that led to his Presidency.”
