'Stunning': 80% using Obamacare's Medicaid expansion are ineligible

Louisiana’s legislative auditor wanted to know how the state’s expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare was doing, so he picked 100 people who were deemed eligible under the rules.

He found that 82 of them made so much money that they shouldn’t have qualified for the benefits they received.

Auditor Daryl G. Purpera, who issued his findings last month to little fanfare outside of Louisiana, figured if those statistics hold true for the rest of the expanded Medicaid population in his state, then the losses to ineligible beneficiaries could be as high as $85 million.

Not stunning. Exactly what we said would happen. It was UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Everyone knew it would be massive fraud. Anything that costs that much money and involve so many entities. FRAUD MAGNET.

If the general population would take the time to learn what the ACA has done (zero)bama and the democrat minions would be run out of this country.

Everyone should take the time to research what the eligibility is for MA recipients in their own states.

That was part of Obama's fundamentally changing America. How about that. It was part of his master plan to move us towards Socialism.
