    This should/needs to be stopped.



    Community organizers will use a Federal Data Hub to sign up people for subsidies — and even ballots.

    President Obama has had a poor record of job creation, but at least one small economic sector is doing well: community organizing.

    The Department of Health and Human Services is about to hire an army of “patient navigators” to inform Americans about the subsidized insurance promised by Obamacare and assist them in enrolling. These organizers will be guided by the new Federal Data Hub, which will give them access to reams of personal information compiled by federal agencies ranging from the IRS to the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration. “The federal government is planning to quietly enact what could be the largest consolidation of personal data in the history of the republic,” Paul Howard of the Manhattan Institute and Stephen T. Parente, a University of Minnesota finance professor, wrote in USA Today. No wonder that there are concerns about everything from identity theft to the ability of navigators to use the system to register Obamacare participants to vote.

    This spring, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee lawyers were also told by HHS that, despite the fact that navigators will have access to sensitive data such as Social Security numbers and tax returns, there will be no criminal background checks required for them. Indeed, they won’t even have to have high-school diplomas.

    JHC...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    So innocent grandmothers trying to get on planes have to be manhandled by the TSA, but the people in charge of the most sensitive data people have don't even get a background check?
