If you ever suspected some government employees are paid to sit around, doing nothing, well, you were right… A British-based company called Serco Inc. landed a $1.2 billion federal contract to process applications for Obamacare. At the time, Serco was under investigation for overbilling the British government. But an Obama Administration spokesman insisted it was a “highly skilled company” with a proven track record in providing cost-effective services to federal agencies. But what exactly ARE those services? Some employees in St. Louis told KMOV.com that Serco is paid by the worker, not per application processed. So they’re still hiring, even though they already have staffers who are instructed to just stare at their computer screens for 10 minutes, then hit the “Refresh” button. But it’s not as if the company does nothing. They do have a multi-million dollar lobbying operation and cut lots of checks to politicians, including $6,000 to Obama’s reelection campaign. Kind of makes you want to hit the “Refresh” button on Washington, doesn’t it?
