  • The truth about [Healthcare] Navigoators



    J
    ames O’Keefe, the guerrilla videographer who helped bring down ACORN (the “community organizing” group that Barack Obama worked for as a lawyer and trainer) and got NPR’s president fired, is back.

    This time, his undercover investigators focused on Obamacare’s “navigators,” the nearly 50,000 people who, in the words of the Department of Health and Human Services, “will serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans” on the Obamacare exchanges (at least when they’re finally working). The total value of grants doled out for nonprofits and community organizations to hire navigators has topped $67 million nationwide, and some of the money is going to a group run by ACORN’s highly controversial founder.

    The events of O’Keefe’s video of a Texas navigator site run by the National Urban League are a familiar sight to viewers of his past efforts exposing Medicaid and voter fraud. Government-paid workers supposedly trained to uphold the law advise clients on how to lie on government forms, evade legal requirements, and ignore proper procedures.

    “You lie because your premiums will be higher,” one navigator advises an investigator for O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, who tells the worker he sometimes smokes. “Don’t tell them that. Don’t tell ’em.”

    The investigator then poses as a low-income worker at a university who has unreported cash income on the side, worrying about how that might affect his premium subsidies. That’s no problem for a navigator, who says, “Don’t get yourself in trouble by declaring it now.”

    “Yeah, it didn’t happen,” another navigator says. One more chimes in: “Never report it.”

    Records show that the National Urban League was paid $376,000 by the federal government for its Obamacare outreach in Texas.
    Everyone act surprised!

    Once again, the predictions exactly come true: Obamacare is loaded to the gunwales with waste and fraud and is specifically designed to give Democrats a way to game the system for their own gain.



    Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

      Why doesn't the finding of fraud bother you?

        It does, when it's on the republican side.

          I don't believe anything that person produces. Get a real journalist on the case. You are free to use your credulity as you see fit.

            Why wasn't a "real journalist" already on the case?

              You dismissed nonkultur when he brought up the fake memos too. There was no way that a bunch of freepers were right and the great Dan Rather was wrong.

              How'd that work out?

                Looks like someone believed him:

                One fired, three suspended after undercover health care video
                May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
                Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
                And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
                may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

                  What's your reason to dismiss this now, Bok?

                    I believe you are confusing me with someone else. I was hostile to the whole "AWOL" thing from the beginning.

                    Regardless, for every font there are how many Kerry affairs?

                      You weren't a "fake but accurate" moonbat, but early on you dismissed the claim because if it were true, "real journalists" would have broken the story not amateur freepers.
