Opinion: ObamaCare Impels Us To Navigate A Way Out Before Its Too Late
If I told you about a non-profit group called Enroll America you might think I was about to promote some organized educators or maybe an effort to staff Volunteer Fire Departments. Instead, Enroll will be leading the new army of bureaucrats hired to help people “enroll” in “ObamaCare.” The future employees of Enroll will carry the title of “patient navigators” an oxymoron that fails to realize “patients” are those receiving medical services, not help applying for subsidies or registering to vote. That’s right, when someone enlists for ObamCare services in one of these state run “exchanges” they will also be given the opportunity to register to vote.
The good news about this is that the first year price tag for the “navigators” is a meager $54 million or about 40 seconds worth of the national government’s current operating budget. The bad news, and it gets much worse from here, is that “navigators” will have to complete a most rigorous training regimen to acquire their credentials. A whopping, 20-30 hours of online instruction on how the mammoth ObamaCare law works.
But that is still the good news when you consider that the database “navigators” will be accessing in their “work” will have more private information on people than the NSA has dreamed about.
The Federal Data Hub will contain a person’s information from a myriad of government agencies including the IRS, DOJ and the SS administration. An Editorial in the USA Today described it’s dangers. “[W]hen the constantly updated information is combined in a central data hub, the potential for abuse is staggering. For one thing, the hub will have all the details needed to steal identities and fraudulently access credit.” Combine the fact that the Hub will also contain data from State governments and you have the SpyFare State’s fantasy.
Are you noticing that the closer we get to “ObamaCare” the more expensive, ridiculously complicated and now dangerous to our liberty it becomes? We better find a way to “Navigate” out of this one before we all go flat-line.
