The creation of the website for the Affordable Care Act should have cost the federal government just $1 million — not the hundreds of millions of dollars it has shelled out so far, a top software expert says.

"The original number I saw was $200 million, which, to me, if you break that down — $200 per hour — would be a million man-hours," Luke Chung, president of FMS Software Solutions, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"That's like 500 man-years. I just don't see how they had time to even use that many hours. I don't know what these people would have been doing."

Chung called the overall design of the website "just wrong."

"I went on it and was just shocked by how poorly it was programmed, how poorly it was designed," he said.
