HHS staffs up CSI: Obamacare

Why does HHS need criminal investigators? To catch Americans avoiding their Obamacare obligations!

More than 1,600 new employees hired by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources in the aftermath of Obamacare’s passage include just two described as ‘consumer safety’ officers, but 86 tasked with ‘criminal investigating’ – indicating that the agency is building an army of detectives to sleuth out violations of a law that many in Congress who supported it still find confusing.

You will sign up for Obamacare. Or Kathleen Sebelius will put you in jail.

NFL sacks Obamacare shills

Sorry Kathleen Sebelius, the NFL isn’t ready for some Obamacare.

On Friday, the NFL indicated that the league had no desire to help the Obama administration sell and implement Obamacare this fall.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy emailed the Washington Examiner‘s Philip Klein to say the NFL had no plans to help promote Obamacare:

“We have responded to the letters we received from members of Congress to inform them we currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about PPACA’s implementation.”

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello emailed the Washington Post the same statement.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had said this week the Obama administration was looking to partner with professional sports leagues to market Obamacare exchanges this fall to sell the unpopular healthcare law to the public.
