Skip to comments.Missing Money? Report questions how states spent ObamaCare funds (Pelosi knew)
Posted on 10/25/2015 4:17:06 AM PDT by Libloather
About $4.6 billion was given to these 17 recipients, including California, New York, Washington state and Kentucky.
But the GAO report found that so far, just $1.4 billion of that has been spent on IT projects, and a total of $3 billion has been spent or drawn down, though not all the spending is detailed.
That, then, leaves at least $1.6 billion unaccounted for. Yet only three states returned any portion of the money a total of just over $1 million was given back.
[T]he specific amount spent on marketplace-related projects was uncertain, as only a selected number of states reported to GAO that they tracked or estimated this information, the report said.

It's for your own good, ya know.
Any one of thier programs have scam written all over it.
If you want to know who really scammed the American people, ask Iran who received $100B in the Iran deal....:^ )
I’m tired of all this transparency. I remember the good ole days when politicians scammed the American people in backroom deals and stealing a million was a big deal. Nowadays that would just make a good tip for these guys....
“Any one of their programs have scam written all over it.”
Every liberal scheme is about fraud; without exception.
I think I must not be alone in that belief and it's the primary reason Trump is up in the polls.
I guess even if you do pass it, you will never know what is in it.
Our feral gubmint has been out of control for decades. I was on active duty in the 1970’s, big scandal then about $900.00 hammers the military was purchasing from a contracter.
Yes, but it has never been this corrupt, on all levels. To says “well it always been this way” really misses the enormity of the problem. The 900 hammer situation usually stems unique mil specs and go old corruption. What is going on now is far more insidious and ubiquitous throughout the federal bureaucracy and at every level.
Let’s not forget the $ 4 billion Louisiana Purchase by Harry Reid for Mary Landreau’s vote on Obamacare.
Pelosi was orgasmic at the O/Care signing.
(Ut, oh. Harry's hands are not visible.)
The Obamacare atrocity was a cunning vehicle for
consolidating Dummycrat power. Dems cashed-in bigtime.
(A) Michelle's buddy---botched the billion dollar web site rollout---still doesn't work.
(B) Harry Reid's $4 billion "accidental" payment to Landrieu is a clue to how the straight party-line vote got this atrocity passed.
(C) A multi-billion dollar slush fund---the Untraceable $8 Billion ObamaCare PR Budget---truly govt fraud at its finest.
Egged on by Pelosi, no one in Congress told Americans about Section 4002---which mandates an $8B untraceable fund to "promote" Obamacare (apparently b/c Boobamba had so little confidence in his signature legislation).
In 2010 Taxpayers are extorted $500 million, in 2011, $750 million, 2012, $1 billion, 2013, $1.25 billion, 2014, $1.5 billion and in 2015 and on, $2 billion........
If you want to know who really scammed the American people, ask Iran who received $100B in the Iran deal..I believe that money was from frozen Iranian accounts, NOT taxpayers.
I hope Pelosi gets colo-rectal cancer.
I am not saying we should ignore, or even tolerate this problem. We need accountability.
Back when ten thousand dollars would buy eight new cars or a VERY nice house stealing a million was a really big deal. In some areas of this country now a million will buy one new car and a camper and that is about all.
States have a right to plunder us also. It says so in the 10th amendment. Er wait
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
“charter of negative liberties” - Obama
“depends on the meaning of what is, is” - Clinton
“Every liberal scheme is about fraud; without exception.”
Even the school lunches are about fraud.
That, then, leaves at least $1.6 billion unaccounted for.
We call this EMBEZZLEMENT, MONEY LAUNDERING, THEFT, A Felony everywhere!!!
we reportedly gave them but $150B but I bet only $100B makes it over there...: )
Oh, I don’t dispute anything you posted! The money was nothing more than what we froze from them for terrorist activities . Now, we are returning this money to them (with a little vig for the politicians (I’m positive). But (supposedly) this shouldn’t affect the taxpayers. Actually, in a real world we should have frozen those accounts and given it to the American people.
