    Lavonne Takatz, 42, worked at the center in Wentzville from October to April.
    “We played Pictionary. We played 20 Questions. We played Trivial Pursuit,” she told the Post-Dispatch Wednesday.

    Re: Second ObamaCare contractor facility doing nothing and still hiring

    Here's an ABC link to the story with more information:

    Some of them work at an office called Serco in London, KY, just a few hours from Nashville.

    “You arrive at 6:30 in the morning. You badge in. You go straight to your cubicle. You wait, and wait and you wait. Nothing comes through,” said former Serco employee LaVonne Takatz.

    Former employees of another Serco facility in Missouri told our sister station KMOV-TV they collected up to $17 an hour to do nothing. They said sometimes they’d play games or sleep to pass the time.

    “Our supervisor, I can’t speak for the others, but ours said if we process one or two of these applications a month, then we’ve done our job. So, that’s a lot of money to be spent on that little bit of nothing,” said former Serco employee Paula Bujewski, who worked at the Missouri facility.

    I did a google search on the name I came up with mostly blogs, but you should back up your own claims rather than expect others to do so for you.

    Lends it more credibility to have an actual person quoted, but an anonymous phone interview and a single person aren't proof. I don't find the notion of a government contractor being paid to do nothing unbelievable, its all too real, but for me to say its going on for certain I'm gonna need more.

    The lawmakers are looking into the claims. You & I don't have to do anything.

    I'd prefer someone with less bias and less desire to find some chicken to **** all the way to re-election.
