Draft Obamacare application asks about voter registration
The Daily Caller ^ | 3/25/2013 | Caroline May

Posted on 03/25/2013 4:31:21 PM PDT by markomalley

The online application draft for health care insurance under Obamacare inquires if the applicant would like to register to vote and directs the applicant to a registration page if they answer in the affirmative.

Page 59 of the 61 page draft application, “List of Questions in the Online Application to Support Eligibility Determinations for Enrollment” developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and first reported by The Washington Examiner, asks applicants “Would you like to register to vote?” The “yes” answer linking to a blank registration form.

On Monday, House Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany of Louisiana called on Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to provide more information about the voter registration portion of the draft.

“The health care law spans 974 pages and regulated nearly one fifth of our economy, yet nowhere in the law is voter registration mentioned,” Boustany wrote in a letter to the HHS secretary. “The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) requires that federal agencies gather only appropriate legislation required by legislation. While the health care law requires that government agencies collect vast information about Americans’ personal lives, it does not give your department an interest in whether individual Americans choose to vote.”

Boustany surmised that the placement of the voter registration question, in the middle of questions to determine eligibility for insurance policies, could lead some to believe their potential eligibility is contingent on whether they are registered to vote.

The Louisiana Republican requested that by April 8, Sebelius supply him with the department’s authorization to collect voter information under Obamacare and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, the titles of those responsible for clearing the document, and other drafts of the application.

Additionally, Boustany noted that many applicants will deal with the exchanges through “navigators” like AARP and Families USA, and requested all of the department’s draft guidance for the navigator program, and asked if the navigators will be “encouraged to ask applicants about their voting status.”

Why do I have to APPLY for Obamacare???

IF it is for EVERYONE-—why should they need to process ‘an APPLICATION”????

This is nuts-—

What reasons would there be for denying me coverage when the whole law was sold to us under the title of ‘covering everyone’???

Another intrusion into my life by Big Brother!!!

Obama can pound sand.

Obamacare is only for those who don’t have health insurance from another source, such as your employer or Medicare.

People, this is very insidious and it should raise huge alarms,

I know someone who was deeply involved with the dem GOTV (Get Out the Vote) mission last November in a battleground state. The person told me that it was sop that the canvassers went door to door to meet with each registered dem voter and that it was IMPERATIVE that they let the organizers know if they made contact and if the voter that they had contacted planned to vote or not. At the time, I shrugged it off because I couldn’t understand why that was so important.

After the massive fraud was reported in the November election, I suddenly realized that if the voters told the dem GOTV staff that they weren’t going to vote, the organizers probably filled out absentee voter cards for the person, with the vote going to, of course, zero. So with more people registered through obamacare, they will have more absentee votes available at their disposal. (Which means that if hellary runs, she wins.)

At my old job, I worked with crazy liberals. Part of what I did was their payroll. Back when the Bush tax cuts were being discussed, they were up in arms against it, but when they went into effect, it was a different story. At a meeting, one of the liberals leading the charge against the cuts asked me when the cuts would be showing up on her pay check. I told her that everyone was to fill out a new W-4 askng their political party affiliation, and the Democrats would get no cuts. She didn’t think it was funny but a few others did.

Boustany had better watch his back, or he might find himself underneath a St. Charles Avenue streetcar.
