ObamaCare Still Can't Catch Fraudulent Enrollees -- Audit

Government auditors were able sign up 17 out of 18 fake ObamaCare enrollees for coverage through federal and state exchanges, a report released on Thursday reveals. That's despite the fact that some applications included obvious signs of fraud.
The Government Accountability Office sent 10 auditors with fictitious enrollment information to the federal site as well as two state-run ObamaCare exchanges, to sign up for subsidized insurance.
