It takes an army: Tens of thousands of workers roll out Obamacare
Economic Times/ Reuters ^ | 21 June 2013

Posted on 06/21/2013 9:18:49 AM PDT by Lorianne

Call them Obamacare's army. From the chief actuary at the California health insurance exchange that President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law established to the legions of call center staffers who will help people trying to buy insurance through such state exchanges, the number of people working to implement "Obamacare" has reached the tens of thousands, a Reuters analysis has found.

But the precise size of this workforce is shrouded in secrecy. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) did not reply to a question asking how many people it has hired or assigned to implement healthcare reform, and companies with government contracts worth tens of millions of dollars are similarly tight-lipped.

Where is Congress? The DHS has to get its funding from the House. They should refuse to fund this until they get the numbers from this Democrat bailout to the bankrupt cities and states they govern.

Obamacare will put the welfare class in charge of the non-welfare class.

People like Chicago public school teachers union president Karen Lewis.

That’s what I was thinking. Defund it ASAP and stop the roll-out.

There is a reason why Sebelius was trying to pressure insurance companies to pony up.

They’ve been threatened and will make noises but won’t cross the line. Not funding obamacare would cross the line.

Please tell me, I do not have to spend the remaining years of my life with people constantly uttering our POS president’s Muslim name when referring to CommieCare.

It is bad enough that he and his minions in the progressive party have stained our history, our White House and our country with his very existence, so why constantly flaunt his Muslim name in our face every day.

It is CommieCare and one of the worse pieces of legislation ever to have been passed in my lifetime and we do nothing.

Well it really should be called PelosiCare.

The thing was already ready to go way before Obama was elected and he really had very little to do with it (other than signing the final bill).

Where is Congress?

At the end of your phone!!!.....ALL: call your congressmen Monday morning and demand an accounting NOw, not next year or even next month....the DHS knows how many hires they did for Obamacare....any sane Congress would have de-funded this or never let the bill pass int he first place. Well they didn't so they must now be accountable to the taxpayer....Please make those calls...we must all do this together or go broke (hang) if we don't.

0bamacare is the single, most devastating thing ever to happen to the Republican party. They are complete buffoons for not realizing from the start that 0bamacare is a Democrat voter recruitment program having NOTHING to do with health care.

I was not a huge fan of Romney, but did support him for this one reason alone: he promised to repeal 0bamacare. After Chief Traitor Roberts refused to declare the law unconstitutional, Romney became the ONLY real hope of getting rid of it. I knew that if 0bama won a second term, he would veto any significant change to it. Given four years to entrench itself in our society, it would be impossible to ever root it out.

As distastateful as Romney was, this alone would have made his presidency worthwile.

Just another money scam by unions to get cushy jobs that they can then harass conservatives with. IRS redux.

> “Given four year s to entrench itself in our society, it would be impossible to ever root it out.”

The House could vote tonight to restrict funding it. They know Obama would use EOs and shift funds to it. This would create a showdown between the House and the White House. They don’t want to fight.

As for Romney, he has a well-documented history of going back on his promises. He’s a known liar without shame. His goal was to get the political power and then excuse himself from whatever promises he made on the campaign trail.

(Romney) promised to repeal 0bamacare.

The chance that he would have actually done that is about the same as Ted Kennedy going for another swim in cold waters.

Using ObamaCare To Create A Permanent Democratic Majority
http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials-perspective/061813-660457-california-democrats-fund-left-wing-groups-with-taxpayer-dollars.htm

What is known so far suggests that California politicians are exploiting health reform to enroll millions of the uninsured in the Democratic Party and fill the coffers of left-wing interest groups with taxpayer money.

The idea is to create an army of IRS type snitches. This will be the Gestapo. If you own a gun, go to Tea Party rallies, or don’t buy insurance, expect a visit from anyone of the numerous fascist government agencies.
