Congressional Candidate Darlene Senger Wants Answers on Illinois Obamacare Program

Darlene Senger - who has been all over the Affordable Care Act - is at it again.  This time, she wants answers on the $33M of marketing dollars spent in Illinois.

Darlene is running against Bill Foster for Congress in Illinois.  And she's talking about government waste, an issue that matters to all voters.  
Darlene Senger is calling for a state and federal investigation to examine the spending and costs associated with promoting the federal healthcare marketplace in Illinois.

Last week, The Associated Press reported that Illinois spent $33 million in federal money to promote the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare. The contract allowed public relations firm FleishmanHillard to bill at $270 an hour, far above rates paid at other states. Illinois ended up paying $37 per enrollee in the exchange, one of the highest rates in the nation.

“The Quinn Administration’s management of the $33 million Get Covered Program is reckless and troubling,” said Senger. “The lack of accountability and transparency mirrors other failed programs administered by Quinn, including the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative, which is under multiple investigations.”
