February’s Golden Fleece Winner Is CMS

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman French Hill (AR-2) announced that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the February recipient of the Golden Fleece Award for the distribution of $750 million in tax credits to unproven citizens and/or unlawfully present individuals in the United States. In a letter to CMS Acting Administrator Andrew Slavitt, Congressman Hill wrote: 

“This mismanagement of taxpayers’ dollars was recently highlighted by a report from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs on the Affordable Care Act Premium Tax Credits.

“There is an old adage that CMS would be wise to follow: ‘measure twice; cut once.’ However, time and time again, those responsible for the implementation of the president’s failed health care law have further contributed to its harmful effects through their rushed efforts at the expense of the hardworking American taxpayers and the U.S. economy…”
