Lawmakers Call for Probe of Obamacare Contractor that Hired Workers to Do Nothing
On Friday, Republican lawmakers called for an investigation into an Obamacare contractor that reportedly paid workers to do nothing.
As Breitbart News reported Wednesday, British company Serco received $1.25 billion in taxpayer money to process Obamacare applications. However, according to a whistleblower who spoke with KMOV-TV, the company's employees were "told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every 10 minutes" and did no work.
Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) sent a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner seeking answers. Reps. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO), Sam Graves (R-MO), Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), Billy Long (R-MO), Ann Wagner (R-MO), and Jason Smith (R-MO) also wrote the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) stating that it is "imperative" that Serco be investigated.
Lawmakers have asked Tavenner to answer their questions by May 30.
