President Obama's health care -- running into more trouble now day by day first administration decided to delay.
The employer mandate remember that was last week claiming businesses weren't prepared to provide their employees with mandatory coverage will now.
We're learning that some agencies will use the honor system.
To provide taxpayer funded subsidies for people without insurance.
-- -- -- Florida's attorney general and she's my guest this morning good morning to you didn't Lindsey say your job as attorney general number one thing on top of the list is -- tried to stop fraud in your state I'm sure that's what attorneys general do.
We do everything in our power to try to prevent fraud whether -- Medicaid fraud tax fraud.
Any type of fraud and here now.
We have nothing to prevent fraud.
Anyone can come and say that they qualify for this and there's absolutely no verification.
And so we learned last week and that President Obama want to delay.
Small businesses having to follow his health care law until 2015 instead of 2014.
And then this came sort of -- -- document dump on Friday afternoon.
And the other system I mean we've all been through high school and college most of us where.
Here's a post to.
We abide by the honor system but do you really think that this will work.
Of course not and you know that's what happens when it for those of us who believe in limited federal government.
That's what happens when you try to take over 16 of the economy.
And that's what we've always been so concerned about they're they're changing the rules they're changing the rules of the game as we go along and that's what's happening.
And you know -- as attorney general it's my duty to protect against fraud to protect our taxpayers.
No -- they have no one has to verify that they're entitled to this money.
You are against this from the beginning as far as your state becoming involved in this in what way explain to our viewers what you did not want to happen well first off Florida of course we -- lead counsel.
It in the Obama -- -- lawsuit.
And we I felt very strongly that we should not participate in the Medicaid expansion.
And the House of Representatives.
Agreed and so -- Florida is not participating in the expansion of Medicaid and I'm very proud of our state.
So where do you see this going now if we have this delay.
Which by the way do you think it's even legal because we've been discussing that this minor damage to your opinion on that first before its next frantic -- I've I think it's probably -- hot yes I think there are going to be issues that.
Again they keep changing the rules of the game as we go along and Gretchen just like you -- They do a document dump on -- holiday weekend with 606.
Pages saying hey this is what we're doing now.
And you can't keep this is too important to the American people this is 16 of our economy that we're talking about such -- the next part of the question.
Abiding by this honor system what kind of problems does that put for your job the next year then as you go back to try and seen.
Whether or not your constituents actually followed the -- system.
Wallets it's going to be unbelievable I mean how do you go back and -- with the tremendous amount of people who are -- and not saying everybody's going to commit fraud I would hope they wouldn't I would hope it would be honest.
But when you open something up that's so it's it's vulnerable and that's something that just invites fraud.
And that's what frightens all of us and it's going to be difficult for the higher asked to verify it's going to be difficult for state authorities to verify.
And then again it's just one more example of what a mess.
This federal government takeover has become much more complicated than some people I guess.
-- -- the attorney general of State Department thanks in here.
