Oh Sure Over 90% Are Fake But Look At The Bright Side:

Even with massive, rampant fraud they still couldn’t meet their enrollment targets

Eleven out of 12 fake applications for government-subsidized health insurance got through a verification process and the bogus beneficiaries are still covered, the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday.

The GAO launched the sting to check to see how well the Obamacare process checks for counterfeit applications. The results were messy, GAO’s Seto Bagdoyan says in testimony prepared for a hearing Wednesday of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee.

“The federal marketplace approved coverage for 11 of our 12 fictitious applicants who initially applied online, or by telephone,” Bagdoyan, who directs GAO’s Forensic Audits and Investigative Service, said in testimony obtained by NBC News.

I for one am comforted that these poor fictitious folks are still covered.

    Probably the same fictitious folks who donated all that actual cash to Obama’s campaigns.

    Seriously, this is an outfit that was brazen and corrupt enough to turn off all the safeguards designed to reject illegal contributions – we’re surprised that they can’t catch insurance fraud either? Stunner, that… when you force everyone into a badly-designed system via crap websites, creating a fantastic opportunity for fraud, and have no safeguards to prevent it, well shucks, you just may get a little bit of fraud.
