Feds are building a detective squad to target consumers and companies that don’t follow Obamacare’s rules

August 23, 2013

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.

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.

    Hitler’s Germany, all over again. Wake up America. The Obamacare was NEVER about making sure that EVERYONE had health coverage. This was a 75% take over of this country and your lives and when he pushes Amnesty down our throats, it will bring down this country. Amnesty is the twin sister of Obamacare for the Muslim Dictator to take over. The only ones who will not have to pay for their health care will be the politicians, illegals and the Muslims in this country. Everyone else will be footing the bill. It’s in the 2,600 plus page nightmare. Get it! It has NOTHING to do with healthcare.

    Riddle me this…

    A guy is working two jobs.. not uncommon these days to make ends meet.

    Job A offers insurance. Job B does not. Does the Job B company get fined because THEY are not providing insurance?

    Businesses will all comply by making their employees all part-time, so that there will not be ANY ObamaCare violations. Lots of federal bureaucracy for NOTHING.
