Coming on the heels of his IRS scandal, his Benghazi scandal, a -2.9% GDP, humiliating defeats in the Supreme Court and a cratering approval rating, this sure is shaping up as a summer of major accomplishments for Mr. Pen and Phone, huh?
Federal officials can’t resolve 85 percent of 2.9 million “inconsistencies” on applications for ObamaCare even after nine months of trying, according to new data provided by the administration.
Most of the problems involve certifying citizenship and income, key components of the national health plan.
But some of the problems are downright nutty.
One unidentified state-run marketplace cited situations in which infants and young children were “erroneously identified as incarcerated, according to federal data,” the inspector general for the Health and Human Services Department revealed Tuesday.
Just 425,000 problematic applications have been resolved out of 2.9 million that states and the federal exchange reported, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services told The Post.
Only citizens are eligible for ObamaCare, and only people at certain income levels are eligible for tax credits and subsidies.
But in 77 percent of the applications under scrutiny, federal records differed from what applicants submitted on those two key qualifications.
But hey, why dwell on the negative when it obviously has a 23% rate of success? Can’t you racists see that?
