Is this even legal? Tax preparing companies in California were paid extra by the Obama regime to enroll people in ObamaCARE. It was an incentive payment to California tax preparers to try and boost the phony ObamaCARE numbers, and your tax dollars paid for it!

Tax-preparing companies are getting paid by an Obamacare exchange to enroll people in Obamacare plans, The Daily Caller has learned.
At least 79 tax service providers, including offices of major companies like Liberty Tax Service and Jackson Hewitt Tax Service, are listed as certified Obamacare enrollment entities in the state of California, according to state exchange records.
California’s Obamacare exchange, Covered California, pays enrollment entities for signing people up for Obamacare.
“Certified Enrollment Entities are paid a flat-fee of $58 per successful application and $25 per successful annual renewal,” according to California Health Benefit Advisers. ”The Enrollment Entities compensate the individual Enrollment Counselors.”
Certified Enrollment Entities in California include multiple offices of Liberty Tax Service and an Inglewood office of Jackson Hewitt Tax Service. Certified Enrollment Entities can include “non-profit community organizations,” labor unions, tax preparers, community clinics and other kinds of groups.
