ACORN Operatives Reappearing As ObamaCare Navigators (What a shocker….ed WO)

BY 

The shortcomings of ObamaCare continue to seep into the light, putting the lie to virtually every claim made by Barack Hussein about his namesake “healthcare” scheme. But one part of the law remains as much a mystery now as when it was written.

ACORN-SC

Section 1555 of the Affordable Care Act is quite short. It reads:

“No individual, company, business, nonprofit entity, or health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall be required to participate in any Federal health insurance program created under this Act (or any amendments made by this Act), or in any Federal health insurance program expanded by this Act (or any such amendment), and there shall be no penalty or fine imposed upon any such issuer for choosing not to participate in such programs.”

Authors of the Affordable Care Act knew it would be unconstitutional to demand that 300 million Americans purchase health insurance. So they provided a way out, albeit with the payment of a penalty. It is this right to opt out of ObamaCare that applies to “individuals, companies, businesses and nonprofit entities,” just as it says in Section 1555.

But the Section’s language then begs the question: What is so special about “health insurance issuers [who offer] group or individual health insurance coverage?” Why are these individuals (or groups) so obviously singled out for exemption from the ACA?  And why are they spared payment of the ObamaCare penalty?

Numerous exemptions were awarded to the politically connected after the passage of ObamaCare, including most of the restaurants and night clubs in Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district. But these little slices of political payback were doled out after the fact. None had been made part of the law itself.

So why the red carpet for “health insurance issuers?”

Because the thousands of ObamaCare “navigators” who will be paid to collect the most sensitive and personal of information from ObamaCare enrollees will become health insurance issuers themselves. And most important, in addition to collecting Social Security numbers, ObamaCare navigators will also be registering voters!

According to the People’s World newspaper, “California’s Secretary of State Debra Bowen is designating the state’s new Health Benefit Exchange, Covered California, as a voter registration agency under the National Voter Registration Act. That means Covered California will be incorporating voter registration into every transaction — online, in-person and by phone — it has with consumers.” In short, “…Obama supporters have found a new way to fill the void left by the bankruptcy of ACORN, the notorious left-wing voter-registration group that saw dozens of its employees in multiple states convicted of fraud.”

So the authors of the Affordable Care Act appear to have written a very accommodating exemption for members of ACORN Redux right into the ObamaCare law! And Barack’s old crew of community organizers will have access to the Federal Data Hub, a massive computer system that will house the personal information of every ObamaCare enrollee as it connects HHS, the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security Administration, Homeland Security, and countless additional federal bureaucracies.

Perhaps the logging of Data Hub time will give navigators something to do between the signing of ObamaCare enrollees as members of the Democrat Party.

Thanks again, Chief Justice Roberts.

    Freedom not to participate
    On September 7, 1916, Congress passed the Public Health Service Act, [Public Law 410] 58 Stat. 682(pertinent part reproduced below). The very title was designed to deceive, it had nothing to do with the public, and it was an *elective form of insurance. The reason no one is required to participate in the Health Care Act, as stated in section 1555, is simply the Act amends the Public Health Service Act, the original law was not repealed, so any amendment would also have to be voluntary.
    Section 1001 (pertinent part reproduced below), clearly states the PPACA is an amendment to the Public Health Service Act, for the most part, it’s an International Agreement for Foreigners, and government owned corporation employers.

    I. Background Back to Top
    Subtitles A and C of title I of the Affordable Care Act amend the requirements of title XXVII of the PHS Act (changes to which are incorporated into ERISA section 715). The preemption provisions of ERISA section 731 and PHS Act section 2724 [2] (implemented in 29 CFR 2590.731(a) and 45 CFR 146.143(a)) apply so that the requirements of part 7 of ERISA and title XXVII of the PHS Act, as amended by the Affordable Care Act, are not to be “construed to supersede any provision of State law which establishes, implements, or continues in effect any standard or requirement solely relating to health insurance issuers in connection with group or individual health insurance coverage except to the extent that such standard or requirement prevents the application of a requirement” of the Affordable Care Act. Accordingly, State laws that impose on health insurance issuers requirements that are stricter than the requirements imposed by the Affordable Care Act will not be superseded by the Affordable Care Act.
