NYT: One quarter of those receiving Obamacare subsidies may not qualify

**Written by Doug Powers
Because of the incompetent construction and rollout of the Obamacare train wreck, any form of time-consuming up front eligibility verification had to be put off in order to enroll as many people as possible.
Now that they’re checking, you’ll be shocked to learn that a lot of people who have signed up for subsidies might not actually qualify:

The Obama administration is contacting hundreds of thousands of people with subsidized health insurance to resolve questions about their eligibility, as consumer advocates express concern that many will be required to repay some or all of the subsidies.
Of the eight million people who signed up for private health plans through insurance exchanges under the new health care law, two million reported personal information that differed from data in government records, according to federal officials and Serco, the company hired to resolve such inconsistencies.

Some who signed up for subsidized insurance say they’d already provided the government with the information they’re being asked for again, but if that’s true the Obama administration must have storing that info with Lois Lerner’s email, because it’s gone.
You’ll notice though that the law has been carefully timed. If a couple million people end up owing a lot of money or face getting the boot from their Obamacare policy, it will come due a few months after the November elections. But I also suspect that portions of the law will be unilaterally re-written on the fly to accommodate any current enrollees who do not currently qualify for subsidies. It’s unlikely that hundreds of thousands of people recently put “on the dole” would be allowed to be kicked off. That’s not how building a dependency culture works.
