Delaying Income Verification Under Obamacare Increases Fraud, Says Congresswoman

Diane Black talks to PJM: “If you can’t verify the various criteria that’s been set up by the law, how can you enact the law?"

After a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing with HHS officials on the health law, Black said, “I’m not confident at this point in time that I can say to my constituency, ‘oh, don’t worry. The information that’s being collected is going to be secure.’”

Black also said it is “almost laughable” that the White House has vowed to veto the House-passed legislation that would delay the employer mandate in Obamacare that requires businesses with more than 50 full-time employees to buy health insurance for every worker.

The Obama administration recently announced the rule would be delayed until 2015.

“It’s really almost laughable, which I’m doing obviously, that the administration breaks the law, says what they want to do and we try to make it law and then he [Obama] says we don’t want you to make it law even though he’s broken the law,” she said.

“I can’t even think that way. That is so convoluted, I can’t even think that way.”

Fraud has been considered acceptable collateral damage and sometimes useful for this administration. Examples are found everywhere like Pigford, massive IRS refunds to one address, every welfare handout program imaginable, and on and on including but not limited to the voting booth. Another barratry is going on right now at our Treasury Department when it comes to the National Debt. Fraud on steroids wouldn’t even begin to describe the size of this blarney.

"Tennessee Republican Rep. Diane Black said the Obama administration’s decision to delay the verification process for income eligibility under the healthcare law could cost taxpayers billions of dollars in fraud."

That's exactly why the commie's set it up that way. The process isn't designed to worry about welfare fraud, but to increase it to the point of system-wide failure.

Some call it fraud. Some call it economic justice, or income redistribution.

Delaying income verification invites fraud? Obviously, but I'm waiting for the progressives to declare that "income verification" is tantamount to "identity verification" as "racist".

"It's kind of like a gang initiation where the prospective members are made to commit a felony to prove their loyalty."

Same reason for the increase in welfare and disability claims. They may not have jobs, but they are paid not to have jobs, and are afraid the Republicans will stop the gravy train.

This administration's most useful form of fraud has occurred at the ballot box.

Whichever system serves to most effectively dispense benefits,
is that favored by Obama and his social justice cronies;
since THEIR people will not be paying for it.

This administrations penchant for fraud has become the new normal. The actions of this administration almost make me want to return to my ancestor's homelands but there are too many homelands to choose from and none would be worth the trouble. It's a real shame there isn't any other country that still enjoys the same freedoms we used to enjoy here.

"This administrations penchant for fraud" should read 'This administrations penchant for enabling fraud'.
