At least three major federal agencies, including the IRS, will scrutinize your application. Checking your identity, income and citizenship is supposed to happen in real time, if you apply online.

In real time? So, if they can’t instantly prove you’re not a citizen, then you’re good to go. My daughter used to work for a government agency that qualified people for food stamps.

If she discovered that an applicant was using a fake or stolen social security number, she could not turn them down for benefits.

When she asked if she could notify the victims of identity theft that their social was being used by someone else, she was told she would be fired if she did. So she notified the department of Social Security instead. Her manager got very upset at her when she found out, even though it was “supposed” to be department policy to do so. This happened in a very red state. Can you imagine how much worse it is in blue states like California?

My point is, Obamacare technically requires you to be a citizen.

However, just like with food stamps, they will likely allow a fake or stolen social to be used as proof of citizenship.

The Obamacare application sherpas will make sure non-citizens learn this. We already advertise US food stamps in Mexico. So I wonder how many Spanish-speaking sherpas they plan to hire to help Mexicans sign up for Obamacare. The Obamacare application also includes a voter registration form. Does anyone know if border states like California will send absentee ballets to people in Mexico who claim to be voters?

I am already "called" normal. That's seriously not a concern. You don't matter.

Glad to see you read my post on "your" vs "you're."

Homosexuality is the way a person was born and cannot be changed, just like race. Learn it.

Not that it matters, because religion is completely a choice, and that is protected, so if homosexuality were a choice, you would still have no argument. The fact is it is not a choice, so you have no argument anyway.

When you graduate 8th grade come back and try to make a real argument.

The same place it is now. Getting up and going to work. Living their lives trying to get by. The problem is the likes of you keep getting in the way.

By the way, while not defending them, maybe in some ways those three were right?

Applying for benefits under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul could be as daunting as doing your taxes.
The government’s draft application runs 15 pages for a three-person family. An outline of the online version has 21 steps, some with additional questions.
Seven months before the Oct. 1 start of enrollment season for millions of uninsured Americans, the idea that getting health insurance could be as easy as shopping online at Amazon or Travelocity is starting to look like wishful thinking.
At least three major federal agencies, including the IRS, will scrutinize your application. Checking your identity, income and citizenship is supposed to happen in real time, if you apply online.
That’s just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help. The government asks to see what you’re making because Obama’s Affordable Care Act is means-tested, with lower-income people getting the most generous help to pay premiums.
Once you’re finished with the money part, actually picking a health plan will require additional steps, plus a basic understanding of insurance jargon.
Oh come on, what could possibly be difficult to understand about this?

That proposed wage scale would go from a low end of $41,600.00 a year to a high end of $99,400.00 a year …
Now if we extrapolate the mid-point as an average wage of $34.00 an hour times the requested 21,000 “Navigators” in California it would cost us a mere $1,485,120,000.00 a year …And that’s just 1 state …

Since no one in Congress or the SCOTUS read the damm thing, at least someone should know what the h*ll is in it. Although a more appropriate name instead of “navigators” should be “boatmen”, as in Styx boatmen.
if it takes you more that 10 minutes to do your taxes might i recommend H&R Block?

To people with the ability to think, they understand discrimination against one group (regardless of the reason) is the same as discrimination against another group (regardless of the reason.)

Both are wrong and both will be corrected.

think you should be first in line to give some ACORN type thug your social security number and all your personal information.

and where i live, voting was done efficiently--no one was too stupid to not be able to figure it out. there were no long lines. no black panthers outside or within ten miles either.

but union thugs and ACORN TYPES will rejoice. California wants 21,000 of these Navigators. If all 50 states decide to hire these Navigators, the numbers of bureaucrats could top 100,000.

And, where will these Navigators come from? Why, unions like SEIU, health providers, ACORN-created community action groups and Planned Parenthood. OBAMACARE IS AN ATM MACHINE FOR LEFT-LEANING WHACKOS.

Obama seems determined to make sure he pays back every disgruntled special interest group that helped get him elected twice. This is one effective way of providing full employment for his fanatical supporters.

Oh, and there’s a voter registration component to the Obamacare application as well. Imagine how ACORN leftists will abuse that provision. IT WILL BE ONE BIG VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE designed to register Democrats and demonize Republicans.

What’s going to happen to states that can’t afford these Navigators? Simple: Federal grants – your hard-earned money – will be used to hire these union goons, leftist community organizers and other malcontents to oversee Obama’s socialist health care program. Maybe this is the “civilian army” Obama campaigned for during the 2008 election cycle.

Clearly, the Obamacare monster is getting bigger and more intrusive by the day – and we all get to pay for it.

RealDave tell me if this is not the Liberal agenda!! Redistribution for the Common Good…Obama!!
Dave communism is an extreme form of socialism, both systems seek to take away individual ownership of goods, working instead towards shared ownership of goods by the people (communism), or ownership by a centralized government that distributes the goods to the people (socialism) this is Obama’s manifesto!!
