Obamacare “Efficiency:” One Billion For Idle Workers

Comment: What’s the best way to lower healthcare costs and lower your premiums?  Most people might say “cut out the bureaucracy,” or “cut fat and waste.”  But, Obamacare has a different answer:  “Why, the best way to lower costs is to pay people a billion dollars to do nothing, of course.”

” “I walk out every day feeling as if I have contributed nothing,” said the Kentucky employee, who declined to have his name used for fear of retribution.”

“The federal government, under the auspices of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, last year gave a five-year, $1.2 billion contract to Reston, Va.-based Serco Inc., a processing and security group, to process paper applications for health insurance.”

“Now, employees are claiming there are not enough applications to generate work for them.”

“The St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Wednesday reported that a former worker, Lavonne Takatz, said Wentzville workers played Pictionary and 20 Questions because they had so little work. Others slept, she said.”

“Employees were not allowed to have access to the Internet or cellphones, Takatz said.”
