The Government Accountability Office (GAO), a non-partisan group, released a report today in advance of Congressional testimony tomorrow detailing how easy it is to commit fraud within the Obamacare application process and to qualify for subsidies that are not deserved.
We all know, and many of us have no trouble facing, the reality that Obamacare is a giant Ponzi scheme — perhaps the biggest in human history.
It will bankrupt our nation and we won’t have access to preferred doctors and hospitals along the way. Thanks Barack Obama!

Congressional investigators using fake identities were able to obtain taxpayer-subsidized health insurance under President Barack Obama’s law, according to testimony to be delivered Wednesday.
GAO said its investigators concocted fake identities using invalid Social Security numbers and falsely claiming citizenship or legal residence. In other cases, they made up income figures that would disqualify them from getting subsidies.
Among the findings:
—Contractors processing applications for the government told the GAO that their role was not to ferret out potential fraud.
—Five of six bogus phone applications went through successfully. The one exception involved an applicant who refused to provide a Social Security number.
—Six online applications were snagged by an identity checking system. But investigators just dialed a call center and all six were approved. That seemed to be an open pathway to coverage.
—The GAO also tried to check the reliability of counselors providing in-person assistance. In five out of six cases, investigators were unable to get help. In the final case, the counselor correctly told the undercover investigator that their stated income would not entitle them to subsidized coverage.
I find the call center end-run particularly revealing: here we have healthcare.gov actually working in a few cases to reject the fraudsters, but a quick call to a call center and the fraudsters all got approved anyway.
Do you know what that is?
That is Barack Hussein Obama chasing sign-ups even at the expense of the integrity of the system.
Such are the tactics of a world class Marxist bureaucrat who knows that the more people he can put on the dole, the more he and his ilk can cling to power through patronage and impoverishment of the citizenry (and the illegal immigrants).
Who cares if fraudsters and tricksters receive tax-payer funded subsidies?
No mr. Obama.
If you voted for this man, are you happy with your choice?
Do you think America can survive this?
