Whistleblower says $1.2 billion Obamacare contractors paying employees to do absolutely nothing


(NaturalNews) America's for-profit prison systems aren't the only corrupt institutions that receive progressively more tax dollars for every person they incarcerate -- or in this case, for each person they hire to run Obama's government healthcare system. New reports indicate that Obamacare processing centers all across the country are now paying people to literally sit at their computers all day and do nothing, with one such company having been awarded $1.2 billion to fund this outrageous travesty.

The British-owned company, known as Serco, reportedly hired 1,500 workers at facilities in Missouri, Kentucky and Oklahoma, to sit around all day and process paper applications for Obamacare, which are largely non-existent. A whistleblower from the firm says each employee is given a goal of processing just two paper applications per month, but many of them aren't even able to accomplish this due to a lack of applications. Instead, employees just sit at their computers all day long and hit the refresh button.

"They're told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every 10 minutes, no more than every 10 minutes," stated the employee to KMOV-TV, requesting that his identity be withheld. "They're monitored to hopefully look for an application. Their goals are set to process two applications per month and some people are not even able to do that."

Serco was awarded a 12-year federal government contract worth $1.2 billion to process the paper applications, which declined significantly after the HealthCare.gov website became at least somewhat functional. But the company, rather than report its lack of work to federal officials, is trying to conceal this fact in order to keep raking in the cash. And it continues to hire new employees, says the whistleblower, as each new employee means more federal funding.

"Based just outside of Washington in Reston, Va., Serco is a 25-year-old firm that pretty much owes its existence to government contracting," wrote Sarah Kliff for The Washington Post. "The company's annual revenue from the federal government is $1.2 billion. This would bring in another $1.2 billion over the course of five years, a big boost to the firm."

Massive government waste illustrates why government has no business in healthcare

In other words, Serco has an incentive to lie about the amount of work that it receives in order to continue receiving tax dollars for its own existence. Even if there is no work to be done -- which there apparently isn't -- Serco can continue to hire employees to twiddle their thumbs and watch YouTube videos all day on the taxpayers' dime, all the while boasting insane profits.

"[If this] type of fraud, waste ,and [sic] abuse was practiced by a private company[,] it would have them out of business in no time flat," wrote one CBS St. Louis commenter. "BUT, because the government is not beholden to efficiency or a bottom line, this happens....and we're paying for it."

Last year, the British government reportedly launched an investigation into Serco's parent company, Serco Group, for allegedly over-billing the government by "tens of millions of dollars." In this instance, Serco had been awarded a government contract not for healthcare but for monitoring offenders on parole, as well as individuals released on bail.

"This is totally absurd and the exact reason our government should not be involved in the Health care industry," wrote another commenter at FoxNews.com, including a quote by Thomas Jefferson that touches at the heart of the issue:

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them," stated Jefferson.
