ObamaCare to Create 100,000s of Jobs in the Field of Explaining ObamaCare

ObamaCare to Create 100,000s of Jobs in the Field of Explaining ObamaCare

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On April 4, 2013 @ 9:08 pm In The Point | 12 Comments

Democrats always said that ObamaCare would create a lot of jobs and while currently it’s hard at work destroying jobs, especially at the working class level, like most medical centralization boondoggles, ObamaCare will create a lot of jobs in the field of explaining what it is and how to survive it.

Tens 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.

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.

Who says Obama doesn’t create jobs? If California is the national standard, then we’ve got a good 180,000 jobs here at 20 to 48 bucks an hour. Sure they’re government jobs and come at the expense of working people… but think of all the private sector jobs that will also be created as new medical coders will be required and new accountants will be needed to help people escape all the new taxes for all the navigators guiding the ObamaCare Titanic into the financial iceberg.

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.

They’re also required to teach you how to vote three times. And if you don’t speak English, No Temas, translators are standing by.

“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.

ObamaCare is bad enough in English. I can only begin to imagine its sheer incomprehensibility when it’s translated into Spanish, Arabic, Swahili and Haitian Creole.

But at least with all the navigators and translators and astrogators, we’ll have lots more jobs for Obama’s campaign supporters funded by the people who actually work for a living.

With this small army of people, the Obama Syndicate will also work to register voters of Democrat inclination.

If they haven’t -——they will.

Yes more new government jobs that taxpayers will have to foot the bill for. And of course pensions and Bennies.
Mostly affirmative action jobs too if I don’t miss my guess.

This boondoggle will pay for everything, BUT actual health care.

“We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” — Obama

Establish it as a bunch of healthcare navigators — then re-purpose it and give them guns and ammunition.

What a great idea! They can have the Navigators explain Obamacare to members of Congress since they never read it.

They had better have the endurance of Rand Paul filibustering.

Some of the questions that come up will take hours to answer.

Whoa, sign me up for that last one. Can I keep track of the hours? I've already put in 100 trying to explain it to myself.

Tax-free and one two-week paid vacations a month, right? And golf every afternoon? And can I say, "I've never worked harder than I'm working now?

20 to 48 bucks per hour to ax questions? I wonder if this is why the gov bought all that ammo.

Back in FDR’s day they paid people to dig holes and then fill them back in. Now the sheeple make more than the workers who pay their wages.

100K navigators at $20/hr would be about $2.160 billion annually just to explain Obamacare!!!! This country is lost..

Typical liberal crap. “Create” a job that costs more money to help someone spend even more of someone else’s hard earned money.

This is basically ALL that any government job is all about. Why should we expect anything different?

What a clown.

It’s all part of Obama’s redistribution of wealth.

This has to be the worst Administration we’ve ever had.

One health expert with close ties to HHS told Breitbart News, “The navigator program, as evidenced by the leadership of Enroll America and yesterday’s rule from CMS, will be a jobs program for unemployable Obama For America campaign volunteers and ACORN remnants.”

This “navigator” business couldn’t possibly be a thinly veiled Obama tactic to enlist people to “explain” how HORRIBLE the awful Republicans are and REGISTER DEMOCRAT VOTERS at the same time; now could it?

Progressive ideology with the techniques of the Chicago political mob.

They ARE a dangerous bunch for sure.

Apparatchiks. Party loyalists, doing the work of the Peoples Party.

Most of them dumb as clay and possessing no morals or ethics.

Community Organizers from the Obama Campaign Organization will comprise the majority of these “Navibaitors.” They will collect personal information on everyone they talk to. Eventually only those who vote as leftists will receive the best health care. All others will get the Obama Care Lite version, if that.

This is the just the way fascism works. Death Panels are next.

correct, what we have here is a massive lobby for the socialists.

Yet again community organizing at the forefront pushed by the Chicago thugs and radicals who are left overs from the late 60’s and early 70’s
