Given this administration, however, suffice it to say that you'll only see this immense waste of taxpayer dough on a few select outlets willing to speak truth to power.
Please note that this investigation was the product of an intrepid, local news team at St. Louis KMOV.
And anyone with a modicum of sense knows that this is but the tip of the iceberg.
An employee of Serco, a company with a $1.2 billion government contract to handle paper healthcare applications has some rather interesting, and believable claims.
Others complain as well. The video shows online comments from an alleged former employee "This place is a JOKE! There is nothing to do - NO WORK."
Serco refused to answer questions about the news investigation.
The center for Medicare and Medicaid issued this preposterous statement: "Serco is committed to making sure federal funds are spent appropriately."
Daniel Halper notes:
The reporter adds, "Our employee says every person who works here is happy to have a job, and wants to work hard. But frustration is mounting. Serco's contract is worth upwards of $1.2 billion."
The anonymous employee says the contract gets paid by the federal government per employee hired. Which is why it's in their interest to have a bunch of employees sitting around all day doing nothing.
That's right: the Obama administration is paying Serco per employee hired, not by work performed, applications processed, or any other reasonable measure.
Of course, it's not their money they're wasting, is it?.
But I'm sure single-payer would be awesome, dontchaknow.
