President Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election partly on his promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, which has been a complete disaster over the past few years.
Now, new reports have come to light showing just how horrific Obamacare actually is. According to The Daily Caller, a Treasury Department inspector general’s report found that the Obamacare health exchanges gave millions of dollars in tax credits to illegals and prisoners.
Your tax dollars at work.
According to the report, the government gave almost $22 million to illegals and prisoners because the folks in charge of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services were too lazy to actually look up whether the people applying for a tax credit were in prison or illegal aliens. Instead, they relied on the lies the prisoners and illegals wrote on the forms.
“Management (of CMS) indicated that identity information is not a requirement or a factor in the determination for an individual’s eligibility for health insurance coverage through the exchanges,” the inspector general’s office report explained.
In addition to that, according to The Daily Caller, insurance exchange officials at the federal and state level gave $112 million in advanced tax credit payments to people who never even filed a tax report in 2014 — even though the law says that individuals have to have filed taxes to receive the tax credit.
This is just sickening to read. Over $130 million was given to people who shouldn’t have received it. That money could have been used to actually do something good for this country. Instead, Washington bureaucrats wasted it, as usual.
Hopefully, the Republican alternative to Obamacare that was released Monday night will fix some of these problems, and, hopefully, Trump will fire the incompetents who allowed this waste of taxpayer money to occur.
It’s time to bring accountability to Washington, and it’s time to finally ditch Obamacare and replace it with something that, while it may not be perfect, is bound to be better than what we have now.
