    Oh, this is just comical if true. Must stop laughing so I can type. Apparently state exchanges will not be able to verify income levels of those who apply for Obamacare benefits. They're just going to go by the honor system. I wonder if the application has one space to check of "D" or "R" given the IRS is involved. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Stay tuned for likely even more fun.

    From the link:

    Now we know the answer. The government is going with what Kliff and Somashekhar call “the honor system.” “We have concluded that the…proposed rule is not feasible for implementation for the first year of operations,” say the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. “The exchange may accept the applicant’s attestation regarding enrollment in an eligible employer-sponsored plan…without further verification, instead of following the procedure in §155.320(d)(3)(iii).”

    And it’s not just there. The feds will also allow people to gain means-tested subsidized coverage on the exchanges without having to…test their means. “For income verification, for the first year of operations, we are providing Exchanges with temporarily expanded discretion to accept an attestation of projected annual household income without further verification.”

    Ranks even higher on the "stupidity scale" than allowing people to vote without an ID.

    This and delaying the employer mandate, even though it only affects a very small percentage of employers and employees (which begs one to ask, why delay it then?) Makes you think the train is coming off the tracks, if not now soon enough!

    And this is Obama's signature piece of legislation. The crowning achievement of his presidency. The only "real" achievement of his presidency. Note- I do not consider the killing of OBL an Obama accomplishment as all he did is not cancel what was started under Bush.

    It is as if they realized that there was still a bottom to the bottomless entitlement money pit, so kept digging.
