Not only was it a crap law, but as everyone knew, the administration of it would be an even bigger joke. Nobody should be shocked by this GAO finding on Obamacare, its administration, and the incompetence of Government to run a program like this equitably or honestly:

Quote:
For 12 applicant scenarios, GAO tested “front-end” controls for verifying an
applicant’s identity or citizenship/immigration status.
Marketplace
applications require attestations that information provided is neither false nor
untrue. In its applications, GAO also stated income at a level to qualify for
income-based subsidies to offset premium costs and reduce cost sharing.
For 11 of these 12 applications, which were made by phone and online using
fictitious identities, GAO obtained subsidized coverage. For one application,
the marketplace denied coverage because GAO’s fictitious applicant did not
provide a Social Security number as part of the test.
A fraudsters wet dream. Read it all: http://waysandmeans.house.gov/upload...eport_7_22.pdf
