Johanns speaks out on Obamacare

Posted: Updated:
 One U.S. Senator is speaking out on what he feels are "flaws" within the Obamacare system.

Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns says that the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that verification of Obamacare eligibility for subsidies failed.

They say that 2.6 million applications contained unresolved inconsistencies.

"So in other words, the federal government can't figure out whether people qualify for Obamacare's tax–payer funded subsidies, and secondly, they can't figure out if the people applying for the subsidies are even U.S. citizens," says Johanns.

Johanns says this issue occurred because Health and Human Services did not have fully operational systems in place.
