Watchdog: Congress using fraudulent applications to get healthcare benefits subsidized by taxpayers
JUNE 26, 2017
Judicial Watch is asking the Trump administration to end the practice of Congress members and their staff getting, with taxpayer subsidies, health care coverage through the District of Columbia’s small business Obamacare exchange.
Judicial Watch said it had previously uncovered false applications filed by the House of Representatives and Senate with the D.C. Exchange Authority showing that the House and Senate claimed to have only 45 employees each. They also show that the House and Senate attested to having “50 or fewer full-time equivalent employees.”
