When she’s not denigrating President Donald Trump, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters is working to funnel billions of dollars in taxpayer funds to leftist organizations.
According to Judicial Watch, Waters introduced a bill to Congress that would shift more than a billion dollars to “Obamacare navigators,” all of which are far-left organizations determined to upend Trump’s presidency.
“A fraud-infested Obamacare ‘outreach’ program will get an astounding $1.2 billion from American taxpayers if legislation introduced by a veteran congresswoman becomes law,” Judicial Watch said in a statement.
“The preposterous measure, introduced by California Democrat Maxine Waters a few week ago, aims to recruit customers for the health insurance exchanges set up under Obama’s disastrous health care overhaul,” the watchdog group continued.
Waters efforts to funnel billions of dollars through Obamacare and into the coffers of radical leftist groups raises serious questions, especially given she already has a history of re-directing federal funds to shady projects.
As reported by Judicial Watch: “The 14-term congresswoman, investigated by the House Ethics Committee for steering federal funds to her husband’s failing Massachusetts bank, crafted the law because the Trump administration slashed Obamacare outreach funding by more than 90%.”
Her proposed bill. titled, “ACA OUTREACH Act,” claims it will shift $300 million annually for the next four years from Health and Human Services to these Obamacare “navigators,” which she claims will help “minority and underserved” individuals better understand the health insurance process.
On paper, her goal almost sounds noble. But in reality, she’s trying to shift federal funds to organizations with clear far-left agendas who have made it clear they want to unseat Trump.
Judicial Watch sued HHS in 2014 to obtain records showing abuses of power and uncovered the Obamacare navigator program was “rife with fraud and corruption” and gave a “whopping $67 million to help people ‘navigate’ health insurance exchanges that weren’t even fully established” in 2013.
The Trump administration has slashed the fraud-filled Obamacare navigator program by 90 percent in the past year, but Waters is still determined to shift billions of dollars to her leftist allies.
It’s time for Waters to be held accountable for her shady actions.
