GAO Confirms: Administration Making Illegal Obamacare Payments

Heritage Foundation budget expert, Paul Winfree, on the recent Government Accountability office report concerning illegal Obamacare payments being made by the Obama administration: 

“Yesterday’s report from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) confirms what many have warned – the administration has been illegally stiffing the American taxpayer in order to prop up the crumbling Obamacare system. The administration's choosing to spend this money illegally should be met with the full force of Congressional inquiries and thorough examination. The American people deserve to know who, within the administration, was responsible for making this decision and those people should be held accountable. This is just another example of the Obama administration’s willingness to do almost anything, even break the law, to bolster the crown jewel of President Obama’s legacy – Obamacare.”
