The Federal "Marketplace" - i.e., the federal Obamacare bureaucracy - is unable to determine whether applicants are US Citizens.

From the IG Report:
The Federal marketplace was unable to resolve 89 percent of inconsistencies

As of the first quarter of 2014, the Federal marketplace was unable to resolve about 2.6 million of 2.9 million inconsistencies because the CMS eligibility system was not fully operational. It was unable to resolve inconsistencies even if applicants submitted appropriate documentation. These inconsistencies pertained to citizenship, national status, and lawful presence; income; and employer-sponsored minimum essential coverage.29 On the other hand, the Federal marketplace was capable of resolving more than 330,000 inconsistencies with Social Security number, non-employer minimum essential coverage, incarceration status, and whether the applicant is an Indian. However, during the same reporting period, the Federal marketplace reported that it had actually resolved only about 10,000 such inconsistencies, or less than 1 percent of the total. See Table 1 for Federal marketplace inconsistency data. CMS said that it was working toward being able to process all inconsistencies.//

In other words, Obamacare is almost - almost - a complete failure at complying with its own rules.

Now we make the surprised face.
