LAWLESS: Obama To Give Subsidies To Those Who Haven’t Even Signed Up For Obamacare


I’m shocked. No, really — I am. I mean, the president has so closely followed the language of the law he claims is “settled.”

Via The Daily Caller:

The Obama administration announced Thursday that states with faulty Obamacare enrollment websites will be able to “retroactively” give taxpayer subsidies to people who signed up for private insurance plans off the Obamacare exchanges.

The administration’s executive decision: to make Obamacare tax credits, which count as subsidies, available to non-Obamacare customers was slammed Friday by House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Joe Pitts.

“It is outrageous for the Obama administration to be quietly telling states: pay subsidies now, worry about the paperwork later. The administration is blatantly ignoring the law, paying subsidies to plans outside of exchanges,” Pitts said.

Pitts also said this dictatorial maneuver opens the door to “fraudsters,” but he has to be wrong. There’s no way this could go badly. It’s not like the federal government is so irresponsible so as to not know how to keep track of its money.
Right?
