Obamacare’s “navigators”

Paul Mirengoff at Power Line has an interesting piece on Obamacare “navigators”, the legions of government advisers recruited to fan out and help people make health insurance decisions. A few of the problems Mirengoff identifies are:

  • The navigators are specifically barred from giving complete advice. Specifically, they will not volunteer the fact that purchasing insurance may be more expensive than the Obamacare penalty.
  • The navigators will be given access to a wealth of personal information, but will undergo no background check, even to exclude known felons and identity thieves.
  • The federal government is paying for the navigators, despite being barred by law from doing so.
