Community organizing, Obamacare style
As John noted earlier today, James O’Keefe has struck again, revealing the fraudulent conduct of Obamacare “navigators” in luring prospects into that program. The party of voter fraud has indeed become the party of insurance fraud.
But Cohen admitted that under the regulations his agency is developing, navigators will receive only 20 to 30 hours of training through an online course
. Furthermore, CMS apparently (1) will not require that navigators have a high school diploma, (2) will not require background checks of navigators, (3) will not automatically exclude felons, (4) will not automatically exclude individuals with prior involvement in identity theft, and (5) will not require that navigators have insurance to cover giving incorrect information about tax consequences.
Nor, as a general matter, will navigators be subject to the standards applicable to census takers.
