OBAMACARE WASTE

People were upset that it cost $600 million to set up the website. 
I wonder if they will be upset to know that 
$4.4BILLION 
was sent to the states to set up OBAMACARE. 
Data compiled and released Friday by the conservative organization Americans for Tax Reform reveals the amount of federal tax dollars funneled to states to implement Obamacare exchanges at $4.4 billion. According to ATR, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services distributed the funds to states for a variety of “vague” purposes. Almost every state got bucks, even states that didn't set up an exchange.
