whitfield-7-2014WASHINGTON (7/25/14) — The United States Government Accountability Office issued a preliminary report Wednesday stating that in a test of the government’s ability to verify the identity and citizenship status of people signing up for Obamacare, 11 of 12 fictitious applicants were approved.

Not only were they approved, but they also received taxpayer subsidized healthcare coverage under President Obama’s health care law.

The full GAO report can be found by clicking here.

“This is another example of President Obama’s failed administration and policies,” said Whitfield. “The blatant disregard for enforcing the law and egregious abuse of taxpayer dollars by this Administration is simply shameful. The House of Representatives has passed more than fifty bills to repeal Obamacare and it is long past time for the Senate to act. This President and his administration must be held accountable for such flagrant disregard for the law and taxpayer funds.”
