John Kerry is on board for giving the 5% of his salary back to the little people.

But is that 5% of his measly senate salary or his total income.

Tens of thousands Obamacare 'navigators' to be hired

ens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as "navigators" to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 could earn $20 an hour or more, according to new regulations issued Wednesday.

The 63-page rule covering navigators, drawn up by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, also said the government will provide free translators for those not fluent in English -- no matter what their native language is.
"The proposed requirements would also include that such entities and individuals provide consumers with information and assistance in the consumer's preferred language, at no cost to the consumer, which would include oral interpretation of non-English languages and the translation of written documents in non-English languages when necessary to ensure meaningful access," said the regulations.

The rules also addressed conflict of interest and other potential issues that navigators could face as the public's first stop on the Obamacare trail.

It is still not clear how many navigators will be required. California, however, provides a hint. It wants 21,000.

That could be an expensive proposition. The proposed rules, now open for public comment, suggest an estimated pay of $20-$48 an hour.

"There is a section of the proposed regulation where our financial analysts estimate how financially significant the regulation will be. In that section, for the purposes of estimating that impact, they assumed navigators would be paid an average of $20 an hour. That is an estimate, not a recommendation or a requirement," said an administration official. "States and organizations are not required by the federal government to set any payment levels for these employees," he added.

The rules allow navigators to come from the ranks of unions, health providers and community action groups such as ACORN and Planned Parenthood. They are required to provide unbiased advice.

Some in Congress are already wary of the navigators. Louisiana Republican Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., chairman of the House Ways and Means Oversight subcommittee, has raised questions about a voter registration provision in the Obamacare application Americans will have to fill out to receive health care, and whether Democratic-leaning activists will influence which party people choose to join.

Just because you can't honestly answer those questions does not mean they're stupid questions.
Subtle distinctions have always been a problem for you. I am all knowing and can answer anything! In this instance, I chose not to respond to more of your spin because you know the answers anyway. If you didn't know the answers, I'd be convinced you're possibly dumber than I ever imagined to begin with. I'm sorry you're intimidated by Ann Coulter.

Here are the questions you asked:

"You're honestly blaming "the establishment GOP" for electoral losses? Do you honestly believe that a farther right candidate would have done better outside of the primaries?

My answer to 1st question: It's incomprehensible to imagine how any intelligent and learned conservative "WOULDN'T" blame the "establishment GOP" for the last presidential race debacle along with state election failures as well. The establishment leadership and line-up of RINO's have failed on every front, first by the abandonment of core conservative principles..and by surrendering to corruptive forces, political, social and otherwise.

My answer to 2nd question: Because any speculative outcome of a Presidential election is subjective, no-one can predict outcomes. We saw this played out in this election. Chief idiot, Carl Rove is the crowned prince of this example! There were willing players in both parties. Prominently, the glaring failure is resident in GOP's complete inability to message the values of Constitutional protections, economic solvency, a healthy and vibrant business community, budgetary discipline and much more.

Values, irrespective of their virtue cannot be articulated by those who don't know what they are! It seems the GOP is more interested in unnecessary and unconstitutional wars, one right after the other...which our current President has grabbed the baton with a death grip! The GOP has collectively sold American citizens down the river with one legislative intiative after the other.

Ours is a Nation wherein only an estimated one/third of eligible votors participated in the last Presidential elecion. While I cannot axtrapolate or quantify the corllary impact of the GOP here, You must understand there's a big piece of that number belonging to us! If you actually believe this has nothing to do with "establishment GOP Leadership," and that these considerations bring no "negative" implications to the party's survivability, then remain in the dark where you seem to live.

I fully support the education of liberal democrats so that they dont sound goofy every time they post something.

Fully automatic weapons have been banned ever since the National Firearms Act of 1934.

And that pretty well sums up the gun control debate, doesnt it? Its between know-nothing, empty headed, knee-jerk liberals...and the decent, law abiding and reasonable citizens of the nation (who oppose the loss of our freedoms in the name of a dumb, poorly thought out, knee jerk law.

What, exactly, is the return on our investment in Iraq?
Well OA, as you probably already know we will be in the "RED" as far as our investment goes for the rest of our lives. Not to even mention those great Americans that lost their life and a future that will never be.........all because of Darth Vader(Cheney) and his puppet Bush.
I really wish they would travel outside of the U.S. more often....ohh like Carter and Clinton.

You do fully understand the moniker given to you, don't you? Well, when the T-Party realizes there's someone in their ranks too stupid to be a member the rejectee is thereby designated as a: "Tea Party Fool," as in the case here.

Most of us just call them liberals, but it's just a toss-up and matter of personal preference that that point!

There's also an arm patch which comes with the special designation. Yes, you should have your very own..it's an emblem of a tea-party fool experiencing rectal/cranial inversion, and I mean this illustration has this guy's head totally jammed up his ask me later and I'll be sure yours is mailed to you.

Wonderful comedy, Willie. You're honestly asserting that the GOP candidate didn't win because he wasn't far enough right, even though, historically, the winning candidate has raced quickly to the center after the primaries to seem more palatable to a larger cross section of the entire voting pool in the general election. Wow.

Another conservative who thinks his party can win more elections by chasing the moderates and RINOs (who comprise voting numbers) away from their party, and thusly, out of their voting base. You seem to have a bit of trouble understanding simple mathematics. Your own party issued an urgent message after the election stressing the importance of expanding their voter base, yet their core constituents are resisting this logical solution with every fiber of their being.

Please, carry on with that strategy.

It's not my strategy! If it were, I'd already be President of the United States..and you'd be washing my limousine.

Clearly, There's not a socialist in the world I would agree with, about anything. Surely, YOU suffer no illusions here.
