About a year ago Michelle wrote a column about the $4 billion slush fund for Obamacare CO-OPs. She mentioned that one of the recipients of a CO-OP loan was a company called Freelancers Union, which was started by Sara Horowitz, a woman Obama has known since his Illinois days back when TOTUS was just a gleam in his eye.

Freelancers Union, which received a $341 million tax free loan from the Obama administration, is a non-profit that owns the for-profit Freelancers Insurance, the latter of which has a dubious distinction:

The New York-based Freelancers Insurance Company has been rated the “worst” insurer for two straight years by state regulators, and data compiled by a national insurance association show an extremely high rate of consumer complaints.

I’ll say this much for the Obama administration… they don’t let little things like past performance of a company or any parent organization cloud the decision-making process when it comes to doling out taxpayer money to pals — much of which will no doubt never be repaid.
