According to at least one Obamacare paper-pusher, employees at an application-processing center in Wentzville, Mo., are getting paid to sit around and do nothing. Investigative reporter Chris Nagus of the St. Louis television station KMOV News 4 spoke to the whistleblower. “They want to hire more people even though we still don’t have work to keep the people that we have busy,” the worker revealed. “There are some weeks that a data entry person would not process an application.”

The worker — or rather, shirker — also spilled the beans on how his colleagues are “told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every 10 minutes.” Another former worker at the processing facility added that the company “is a JOKE! There is nothing to do — NO WORK.”

Remember when ♡bamaCare!!! was going to save us millions and billions by “eliminating waste and fraud?”

Good times.

More seriously, any time any politician claims government is going to do something with less waste and less fraud than the private sector, that politician should be branded with the scarlet L for Liar or the scarlet F for Fool.

And I mean a genuine, hot-iron brand.
