Let the fraud begin

When Obamacare rolls out next year, the exchanges will not do anything to verify eligibility for subsidies:

The Obama administration announced Friday that it would significantly scale back the health law’s requirements that new insurance marketplaces verify consumers’ income and health insurance status. Instead, the federal government will rely more heavily on consumers’ self-reported information until 2015, when it plans to have stronger verification systems in place.

To call this an invitation to fraud is an understatement.

It’s also illegal. The law offers subsidies, but requires the government to verify eligibility for those subsidies. But no matter, the president is going to go ahead and give those subsidies to anyone who asks.
