GAO: Obamacare gave subsidies to 11 of 12 fictitious applicants

"The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has released a report which concludes the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) did little or nothing to prevent various types of Obamacare fraud throughout 2014.

According to the GAO analysis, billions of dollars in subsidies were paid out to individuals with “unresolved inconsistencies” in their files. For instance, there were 35,000 applications which had some form of inconsistency with their social security number. Despite this, CMS paid out subsidies worth $154 million to these individuals. Asked about their failure to correct these inconsistencies, CMS told the GAO they do not consider SSN inconsistencies a stand alone problem, despite regulations that specifically state CMS must attempt to resolve such inconsistencies."
