Obama gave taxpayers’ money to Obamacare contractor to hire employees to do nothing
It has just been reported that Obama gave taxpayers’ money to Serco, an Obamacare contractor, to hire employees to do nothing. The more employees that Serco hired to do nothing, the more taxpayer money it got from Obama. At the time of the report, Serco was still hiring new employees.

It also reminds me of how Obama gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs. However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt. The Washington Post reported that Solyndra had used some of the loan money to purchase new equipment which it never used, and then sold that new equipment, still in its plastic wrap, for pennies on the dollar. Former Solyndra engineer Lindsey Eastburn told the Washington Post, “After we got the loan guarantee, they were just spending money left and right… Because we were doing well, nobody cared. Because of that infusion of money, it made people sloppy.” CBS News reported that Solyndra had thrown millions of dollars worth of brand new glass tubes into garbage dumpsters, where they ended up being shattered.
It also reminds me of how Obama gave $16.3 million to First Solar, a company that manufactures solar panels, so the company could sell solar panels to itself.
During Obama’s presidency, the federal government repeatedly purchased soda for a cost of $3.40 per can. Obama did not express any desire to switch to a cheaper seller, such as Costco, amazon.com, or Wal-Mart – or to an even still cheaper seller such as a wholesaler. Instead, Obama repeatedly forced taxpayers to pay these outrageous prices for soda.
