The Blue Hen State is possibly best known for being home to Vice President Joe Biden, not to mention mega-center of Yawnsville, USA by both Wayne and Garth. But now Delaware may be the epitome of government waste, fraud, and abuse when it comes to throwing away taxpayer dollars, as reported by the right-of-center Cybercast News Service (CNSNews.com) on Nov. 7, 2013.
Delaware state government officials have spent $4,000,000 to provide four different community organizations within the Diamond State platforms to hawk the Affordable Care Act (aka: ObamaCare) on-line.
Unfortunately for the hardworking taxpayers of Delaware, a niggling four (count ’em, 4) individuals have actually purchased their health care insurance via the state-funded websites.
As CNSNews.com noted via the Associated Press:
- Brandywine Women’s Health Associates in Wilmington, Del., enrolled three people.
- Christiana Care Health Services in Newark, Del., enrolled one person.
- Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care in Easton, Md., and Westside Family Healthcare in Wilmington, Del. – did not complete one enrollment, application or create an account.
What Silver Lining…?
Although none of the officials for ObamaCare on the federal level seem to know how many people have actually purchased Barack Obama’s signature legislation, Delaware appears to have more on the ball.
Besides the four individuals who have purchased from the cyber-marketplace, an additional 31 residents have completed enrollment applications.
An additional 218 accounts were created for “possible” enrollment in the future.
