Exposing Frauid: Democrats Upset

July 16, 2015 Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senior Democrats pushed back Thursday against an undercover government probe of President Barack Obama's health care law, saying it didn't uncover any real fraud.

Investigators for the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office signed up 11 bogus beneficiaries for 2014 coverage then got to continue benefits this year for all but one.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said these were "fictitious cases" and the GAO investigators themselves admit the findings can't be translated to the 10 million people getting subsidized coverage through the law's health insurance markets. Wyden spoke at a Finance Committee hearing on the investigation.

But GAO's audits chief Seto Bagdoyan said the investigation exposed real concerns. He said it was relatively easy for GAO's fictitious characters to get and keep coverage, even to get reinstated after terminated them. seems to put a higher priority on getting people covered than on verifying they are legally entitled to benefits, Bagdoyan said.
Democrats don't care about fraud if it serves their desires.

Speaking as a Native Born Oregon since 1945, I am here to testify that Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. is among the sleaziest, most insincere and least reliable politicians that Oregonians have ever had their anal-rectal moments when they first elected him ... and he only gets re-elected because he makes money for the democratic voters in the three 'major' metropolitan areas who are sucking on the state tit.

When he was running for City Counsel in Portland about ... oh, 35 years ago (?)... he came knocking on my door asking for my vote. I told him that I would never vote for him for Dog Catcher, and I don't even like dogs but I respect their integrity more than his.

The only thing you can count on from that eminent sleaze-bag politician is that he will give a bad name to the word "Politician".

If you ever met him in person, you would immediately get the impression that this is one guy you never want to turn your back on.

But that's just me talking, and everyone knows that I don't, like, "have an opinion".
