Greed at a time like this with cancellations galore.
Check it out:
Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) proposed legislation on Monday that would prevent the federal government from giving bonuses or raises to people who run state-level health insurance exchanges under ObamaCare.
Gardner’s bill, H.R. 3679, is a response to a a recent effort by Patty Fontneau, who runs Colorado’s health insurance exchange, to get a raise and bonus. Gardner said Fontneau is seeking a raise even though the Colorado exchange is far behind its enrollment target so far this year.
The Denver Post reported that just 6,000 Coloradans were signed up through mid-November, even though the exchange expected that enrollment of 11,000 people would be a worst-case scenario.
“While hundreds of thousands of Coloradans were dealing with cancellation and rate increase notices in October, the CEO of Connect for Health Colorado seemingly had more pressing concerns at hand — making sure that her taxpayer-funded salary grew even larger,” Gardner said late last week.
