Nothing in ObamaCare actually works, including the fraud protection systems. They were treated as one of the lowest priorities by the system designers, and according to an IRS audit, it shows. From the Associated Press:


The rollout of the law has been hurt by canceled policies and problems with the federal website used by people to enroll in health plans, causing political headaches for the White House and for Democrats in Congress. The new problems concern subsidies that are available to low- and medium-income people who buy insurance through state-based exchanges that opened in October.

Those subsidies are administered by the Internal Revenue Service in the form of tax credits, and that’s where the trouble arises.

“The IRS’ existing fraud detection system may not be capable of identifying (Affordable Care Act) refund fraud or schemes prior to the issuance of tax return refunds,” said the report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. “The IRS reported that the long-term limitations of its existing fraud detection system include its inability to keep pace with increasing levels of fraud,” the report said.

But then the IRS commissioner, and President Obama, said to just ignore all those frowny faces in the professional auditing division, because everything’s going to be swell. You can take their word for it. Try not to think of the billions of dollars in fraud already taking place under the existing tax system. Put your faith in the people who abused IRS power to punish their political enemies, and the President who told the biggest lie in modern history: “If you like your health plan, you can keep it, period.”


Sounding more upbeat, Acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel said, “The IRS has a strong, effective system in place for administering the Premium Tax Credit. We have a proven track record of safely and securely transmitting federal tax information and we have a robust and secure process in place to deliver this important credit for taxpayers.”

The president had a sunnier view, too. Seeking to regroup from the law’s disastrous rollout, Obama said Tuesday the government website is working well “for the vast majority of users.”

He acknowledged that other problems will likely arise, but “when they do, we’ll fix those too.”

Well, that’s reassuring. ObamaCare was sold to us as a brilliant central plan to take control of a vast and complicated industry, wisely allocating insurance resources according to the dictates of the Best and Brightest among us. In reality, it’s a rolling nightmare of crashes, broken promises, hastily improvised fixes, unilaterally delayed mandates, discarded components – remember the 1099 reporting requirements for business expenses? How about the CLASS Act? Did you know the White House was still touting the wonders of the CLASS Act even though it was repealed a year ago? – and of course, relentless political spin. We were promised a high-performance sports car; we got a battered, rusty jalopy cobbled together from obsolete parts, rattling and farting its way forward one news cycle at a time, while five million people lose their insurance and fall out of the rumble seats.http://www.humanevents.com/2013/12/04/ad...u-a-check/
