Earlier this month, Georgia discovered a way to obstruct the implementation of Obamacare, causing Democrats across the country to condemn the states Department of Insurance for obstructing President Barack Obamas beloved Affordable Care Act.
In early August, Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens explained the obstruction method to a crowd of enthusiastic Georgians. Obamacare created many positions within each states healthcare exchange for insurance agents, or employees that sign customers up for Obamacare coverage.
“IMHO, we should be doing everything we can to stop this disaster. Not delay it, STOP it, dead in it’s tracks.The idea of federalizing 1/6 of the US economy is nuts.”
Unfortunately the uniparty is not going to lift a finger to stop it. They’re in pretty much perfect agreement that boehnercare is the way to go. So we’ll get to do what we can with what we have.
I don’t get it. Please explain it to me.
The insurance companies pushed this travesty. Agents I’ve spoken with think it will put them out of business. I wonder if they’ll help
insurance agent test....
Format the test in cursive.
By the same means, some activist judge could "nullify" this law. You know the drill; the law is racist, sexist, homophobic, therefore it is (liberal pretzel logic) unconstitutional.
Why'd they push this? What's in it for them, if they go out of business or are (ultimately) replaced by 0Care?
I am guessing obamacare supporters can’t pass the test?
American Overlook, whatever that is, is not Fox News. For one thing, both the TV and the web editions of Fox News feature better writers.
Gotta love my state!
With a republican led legislature (after the 2012 election gained almost a super majority) Georgia has done a few things right including:
- passed voter ID law and made Eric Holder/Obama back down
- passed stricter state immigration enforcement (a lot of illegals fled the state)
Governor Deal is doing a good job. When he was a Congressman from my district, he sent Obozo a letter asking for proof that obozo was Constitutionally qualified to be President. Deal never got a response.
And he got bashed by the libs for it..
If I understand the article correctly, Georgia will require potential Obamacare Exchange employees to take the same examination that a trained insurance agent would have to take . . . despite the fact the potential Exchange employees have zero training in being an insurance agent: theyve taken no courses on the subject, read no books on it, etc.
Georgia will do three things: 1) Require potential Exchange employees to become Navigators; 2) Require them to take the examination for becoming a licensed insurance agent: and 3) Change the name of the examination from Insurance Agent Examination to Navigator Examination. Its Georgias examination; they can call it anything they want.
Its also based on some demographic savvy as to who the potential Exchange employees are likely to be: probably ACORN types, community organizers, et al. What are the odds that such people will muster the self-discipline and ambition to take the same educational route that someone wanting to be an actual insurance agent would take, especially for the sake of passing what is probably a long, tough, boring licensing examination? Shall we say slim?
Its a clever idea. I very much hope it works.
And if the text is in cursive type font it may further weed out the lowfo applicants...
How can any one person, let alone a whole staff of people, know all the rules and regulations contained in the 2000+/- page ACA pas by congress, plus the 20,000+/- pages of regulations created by the HHS? It is impossible. So how can anyone be hired to fill the position of Naigator?
That would be much better than a bunch of ACORN community organizers/activists, which is what we’re going to get otherwise.
Now that’s funny!
I am a Georgia Peach, I am so glad our state is one that will not secumb to Obummercare.
Hi Repeal, I hope you are well.
Thanks for the links. It looks like the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner will stop any Navigator in Oklahoma. https://www.agencyequity.com/news/863-oklahoma-commission-criticizes-the-navigator-program-as-it-lacks-credentials

We’re moving from VA to AZ. Hope AZ follows GA’s lead.
