The private contracting firm Serco was paid over $1.2 billion to process paper Obamacare applications. And in recent months, Serco employees have confessed to local reporters at Missouri new station KMOV that they are being paid to nothing.
Some employees said they spent their days playing games like Pictionary and 20 Words.
One employee said she was told by a Serco supervisor to only process one to two applications a month.
Serco executives testified before Congress in May and said the company intended to process an estimated 6.2 million paper applications. However a Freedom of Information Act request, filed by KMOV, revealed that Serco had actually processed a mere 271,000 applications–which is less than 5% of what they had previously promised.
Serco was brought on to process paper Obamacare applications in Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
According to a Real Clear Politics average of polls, a whopping 53.8% of Americans still oppose Obamacare.
