The IRS has jumped with zealous relish into the role of fining people who haven’t gotten Obamacare. But as the IRS is so thrilled to penalize taxpayers who haven’t bothered to get healthcare insurance, Obama’s government is fraudulently paying out millions in Obamacare healthcare subsidies to people who don’t even exist.
The IRS has reported that it has fined 7.5 million Americans who haven’t satisfied Obama’s healthcare law. Yet there are no provisions in Obamacare to make sure those who sign up are even real people and millions in subsidies are being paid to people scamming the system!
The Treasury Department reported last week the number of Americans who faced fines because of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate was significantly higher than the Obama administration expected. For 2014, the IRS projected that roughly 6 million would face fines, but the final total was 1.5 million higher.
…But an investigation by the Government Accountability Office recently revealed that fake applicants who enrolled in health insurance programs through the federal exchange were receiving subsidies. Those phony applicants had initially enrolled during 2014, but they were automatically re-enrolled and continued to benefit from tax subsidies in 2015, the GAO said.
The GAO was successful in 11 of 12 attempts to register fictitious people with the federal health insurance exchange. In seven of those cases, the fake applications were missing vital pieces of information, which should have raised red flags during the approval process.
So, if you don’t sign up you get fined, yet there is no process to weed out scammers who DO sign up? That means America is getting fined twice! Once by the IRS and a second time with the rampant fraud stealing our tax dollars.
Obamacare is one giant fraud on America.
