$1.2 BILLION for these leeches.

ST. LOUIS (CBS St. Louis) – Employees at an Obamacare processing center in Missouri have very little work and are often paid to do nothing, a whistleblower tells KMOV-TV.

“The main thing is that the Data Entry side does not have hardly any work to do. They’re told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every ten minutes- no more than every ten minutes.

They’re monitored to hopefully look for an application. Their goals are set to process two applications per month and some people are not even able to do that,” the employee told the station, which withheld the employee’s identity.

Serco, an a British-based staffing company, was awarded a 12-year federal government contract worth more than $1.2 billion to process Obamacare paper applications.
