I remember that Obama promised we could keep our plans, keep our doctors and that our premiums would drop 3000% but I don’t remember Obama promising that he’d create a special and separate police force to make sure we obey.
Obama is creating a new police force to hunt you down and make sure you are complying with the dictator’s orders:
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.
On the day President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010, HHS received authority from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to make as many as 1,814 new hires under an emergency ‘Direct Hiring Authority’ order.
The Obama administration ordered that employment expansion despite a government-wide hiring freeze.
There’s always room for the Obama Schutzstaffel and it won’t come cheap:
A total of 1,684 of those positions were filled. An analysis by MailOnline shows that at 2010 federal government salary rates, the new employees’ salaries alone cost the U.S. at least $138.8 million every year.
Had the agency filled all its available jobs, that cost would have been a minimum of $159 million.
The hiring began in May 2010 and continued through June 2013, making the later hires eligible for higher salaries as a result of annual cost-of-living increases.
The difference between what HHS spent on new Obamacare-related employees and what it was authorized to spend is explained by its failure to hire most of the 261 ‘consumer safety officers’ it was authorized to bring aboard. Only two such employees were hired.
But while OPM authorized HHS Deputy Assistant Secretary for Human Resources Denise Carter — later renamed Denise Wells — to hire 50 criminal investigators, the agency increased that number to 86 on its own.
After MailOnline lodged a Freedom Of Information Request with HHS, the agency sent a spreadsheet containing records of the positions it filled, along with the salary level for each one on the government’s ‘GS’ hiring scale.
Pretty interesting. A new armed police force is here to investigate violations of a law that changes almost daily.
Sounds fascist to me.
No wonder Congress made itself exempt. You can’t help but wonder what these Nazis can do to you when no one even knows what the law says. I’ll wager you end having to prove your innocence, just as with the IRS.
You can’t keep you doctor, you can’t keep your plan, you can’t keep your privacy and apparently you won’t be able to keep your freedom either.
