Skip to comments.Feds open investigation of Md. ObamaCare site
Posted on 03/10/2014 1:15:17 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
The Health and Human Services inspector general (IG) will launch an investigation into the failed ObamaCare exchange in Maryland, Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) announced Monday.
Maryland officials ignored early warning signs and chose to waste and abuse federal taxpayer money by opening up what they knew was a flawed exchange to the public, he wrote in a statement.
I have confidence that the nonpartisan and independent HHS Inspector General will thoroughly investigate and bring to light how hundreds of millions of dollars were wasted on one of the worst exchange roll outs in the country, he added.
An official with the HHS inspector generals office did not return a request for confirmation.
Last month, Harris and Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) sent a letter to the IG requesting the investigation. State officials in Maryland have been debating for months whether to abandon the faltering state-run exchange in favor of HealthCare.gov.
By the end of the year, over $100 million federal dollars will have been spent on a project that should have cost much less, and doesnt work, they wrote. As a result of the fact that Maryland appears willing to continue to waste tens of millions of more federal dollars, we ask that the investigation start immediately.

The dogs are starting to turn on each other.
How much of this scammed tax payers money went to mac daddies offshore hidden account?
If he believes this he is probably the only person in the universe that does.
Everything the HHS IG is claiming about the Maryland exchange is even more true of the federal exchange - only on a MUCH larger scale.
This HAS to be satire...
He also believes in unicorns, dragons, Space Aliens, Pegasus, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy........................
Is there one accusation in that statement that Barack Obama is not also guilty of?
Except his waste and abuse is at least 50 times larger.

O/Care is teeming w/ endless vote fraud tricks. And that's why they enthusiastically voted for it w/ an historic straight party-liObama went on latino TV whining about "underdeserved" latinos and is conniving to get them enrolled.
INCONVENIENT FACTOID Latinos do not need to pay for O/Care---they can get free healthcare any frickin' time they want it. Obama's "latino enrollment" scam is a ruse to get votes by putting illegals into O/Care. NOTE WELL healthcare.gov is also a voter registration site. Tricky Democrats can easily plug in enrollees into their voter rolls.....and count them as votes on election day.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Hoping something comes of it, but I’m not holding my breath.
