Obamacare Waste, Fraud and Abuse

In her testimony before Congress today, Health and Human Services Secretary
Kathleen Sebelius provided an updated dollar amount for the cost of $677 million. In addition to the $677 million spent on the federal Obamacare website, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has shoveled $4.5 billion of taxpayer money to promote Obamacare on the state level.

For the math challenged, that's about $5.2 billion in taxpayer dollars.

But only half of us actually PAY income taxes, so the rest of you can ignore the rest of this post.
HHS also released updated “enrollment” figures for Obamacare. According to the agency 364,682 people have “selected a plan” – the equivalent of putting an item in your online shopping cart and leaving it there.
Put in the shopping cart.

Not paid for.

Just in the cart.

$5.2 millyun divided by 364 thousand = $14,000 per shopping cart.

Not sale.

Shopping cart.

I wish I could get paid $14k for every application I take.
