HHS Report: 1,295,571 Obamacare Enrollees May or May Not Be Legal Citizens

A devastating new Health and Human Services (HHS) Inspector General report released on Tuesday reveals that the Obama administration has yet to determine whether 1,295,571 of the over 8 million Obamacare enrollees are U.S. citizens lawfully in the country. 

The finding, located on page 11 of the report, states that 44% of the remaining 2,611,780 application "inconsistencies" are related to verifying "Citizenship/national status/lawful presence." Another 960,492 application inconsistencies were related to verifying whether subsidy applicants provided accurate income information. 

Moreover, the Inspector General report only covered the federal Obamacare exchanges to determine how the Obama administration resolved verification problems through December 2013. As for the 15 state-run Obamacare exchanges, the report says four--Oregon, Nevada, Vermont, and Massachusetts--are simply "unable to resolve inconsistencies." 

As the Washington Post reported in May, as many as one million Obamacare enrollees may be receiving incorrect taxpayer-funded subsidies due to Obamacare's continued technical failures and inability to properly verify income and citizenship eligibility. 

One year ago, conservatives warned that the Obama administration's decision to use the so-called "honor system" for income eligibility was merely a backdoor way to get as many individuals on the public dole as possible.

The Office of Inspector General determined that "the federal marketplace was generally incapable of resolving most inconsistencies."   

Obamacare will cost U.S. taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the next ten years.

Wait a minute, aren't the INSURANCE COMPANIES charged with the vetting of the applicants?  They do in my family and if we don't qualify, the INSURANCE COMPANY does something about it.

When ever you about "illegals" qualifying for something or according to this I should say "people who are not citizens" but it actually applies to both they are always talking Mexicans, South or Central American. The immigration laws and who qualifies for what is different with them and for some reason they get allot free passes that other immigrants legal or not do not get.

For some unknown reason when Iraqi lose their status in other words they came legally and have gotten in trouble and have their Green Card taken away they will not be deported like anyone else.. Even when they beg to go back at their own expense they are not allowed. They have to stay here with no status which means no work permit. They also can not get Obama Care. We just spent several months sending all kinds of documentation for the past 30 years to the insurance agent to prove my ex husband has been in the USA legally since 1973 just to be told at the end he does not qualify because he has no status.
