At last, Heidi Zoellner can smile.

Zoellner, the lone Affordable Care Act navigator in central Nebraska, is seeing fewer glitches on www.healthcare.gov.

Zoellner, 40, of Kearney has an office at Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska. She took a week of online training to become a licensed certified navigator and passed online tests throughout the process.

She has no data on how many Nebraskans have enrolled for health care insurance so far.

Well, you'd think she could speak about her personal successes.

Or maybe she is.

What kind of inadequate program is this that can’t immediately compute this data (e.g., applicants, approvals and so forth)? Want a mongo-cluster-f.

DAILY CALLER.COM--Kansas Obamacare ‘navigator’
has outstanding arrest warrant / by Michael Volpe

>

Rosilyn Wells — the Director of Outreach and Enrollment for the Heartland Community Health-care Center (HCHC)-- was hired as an Obamacare "navigator" despite her shady financial history: (1) a bankruptcy in 2003, (2) a 2007 civil charge from a local check cashing business for writing a bad check, (3) being more than $1700 behind on her state tax bill, and, (4) having an outstanding arrest warrant in nearby Shawnee County. Wells lives and works in Douglass County.

NAVIGATORS--OBAMACARE'S PRIVACY NIGHTMARE---AG's from 13 states wrote HHS' Sebelius to express concerns over consumer privacy and oversight of “Obamacare navigators,” counselors charged with assisting consumers.....the AGs' asked HHS what policies were in place to: (1) screen and monitor program personnel, (2) prevent fraud and remedy cases of it, and, (3) regulate the navigators at the state level....... chief among AG concerns was (5) whether sufficient safeguards were in place to prevent security breaches.

TALKING POINTS---A West Virginia nonprofit has turned down a federal grant it received to help residents navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act after it received an inquiry from Attorney General Patrick Morrisey about how it would protect consumer information. Clarksburg-based West Virginia Parent Training Inc. did not respond to a letter it received from Morrisey directing it to answer 26 questions about the group's personnel and hiring practices, including employee background checks and employee monitoring programs, the Sunday Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/17M1QVe) reported. (Excerpt) Read more at sanluisobispo.com ...

YOUR TURN--Contact your state AG---ask him/her to issue a letter of inquiry to groups receiving federal "Navigator" grants. The inquiry should center on questions WRT how the group intends to protect consumer data.

In particular, the questionnaire should ask if the tax-funded "Navigator" program intends to transfer personal/ financial/medical data of the insured to the local/county/national Democrat Party, relevant Unions, banks, investment companies, drug companies, insurance companies. Trial Lawyers' associations and whether "Navigators" have sub rosa contracts with these, and other groups, plan to profit, to provide significant info to enrich databases for pecuniary purposes.

The AG also needs to confirm (1) whether the "navigator" was ever convicted of a felony....... and....(2) whether the "navigator" can be bonded.

Most importantly demand that your AG enforce the requirement that "Navigators" must have a state insurance license (consists of a comprehensive test on all aspects of insurance and compels a background check).

Sees Relief?
The only relief is a total scrap of the program.

Ahh, the ministry of propaganda, I wonder if she has any warrants calling for her arrest, divorce records, indications of past drug abuse or a former ACORN stooge?

When is comes to Obamacare everything is a legitimate target.

Wow! A whole week of training! What a grizzled vet she is! What a farce. Can’t wait for the grand collapse of this crappy program.
But it won’t. They will keep flogging away at it.

I still find it hilarious how Democrats think it’s so horrible to ask someone to present an ID to vote, but it’s perfectly okay to make people jump through hoops to verify their identity to get MANDATORY health coverage.

It’s laughable that the Obamabots think that once these software “glitches” are cleaned up, everyone will flock to Obamacare. They couldn’t be more wrong. It’s like waiting on line for two hours at some highly-touted new restaurant. You finally get a menu and find out that a burger and fries will run you thirty bucks. And the burgers are burnt and the fries are soggy. And the chef and his staff don’t even eat there.

Nancy Pelosi: Obamacare Rollout Glitches ‘Unacceptable’

By Amber Kiwan Oct 20, 2013 10:29am ABC nancy pelosi this week jt 131020 16x9 608 Nancy Pelosi: Obamacare Rollout Glitches Unacceptable

ABC News

This morning on “This Week,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the website glitches around the rollout of the president’s signature health care law were “unacceptable.”

“As far as the Affordable Care Act, as I call it, the fact is, that yes what has happened is unacceptable in terms of the glitches,” Pelosi told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on “This Week.”

“This has to be fixed, but what doesn’t have to be fixed is the fact that tens of millions of more people will have access to affordable, quality health care. That no longer having a preexisting medical condition will bar you from getting affordable care,” Pelosi added.

Raddatz also asked Pelosi about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s political future, following her return to the campaign trail Saturday for friend Terry McAuliffe’s Virginia governor’s campaign.

Pelosi said she believes if Clinton does run for president in 2016, she would win and would be “a great president.”

“Let me say, if Hillary Clinton does run, she’ll be one of the best prepared people and she will win, I believe, if she runs,” Pelosi said. “She’ll be one of the best prepared people to enter the White House in a long time.”

Once that antiquated nightmare is up and running, the bigger nightmare will start, sticker shock, and the desperation millions of Americans will experience when they realize they’ve been thoroughly screwed, and there is nothing they can do to stop the attack.

The websites are the easy part and they totally f’d it up.

The hard part is how to manage 300 million peoples personal data without fraud, theft, misuse, corrupted data, loss of data integrity, etc. etc.

Data could easily be in error and it will be up to the individual to fix it. Otherwise, premiums will be extremely high. Probably lots of hours on the phone with government bureaucrats that will make the whole experience horrible. Hey, just like the IRS. Most sheeple will not care and just live with the intrusion and mess and be thankful that they have "free" healthcare.

If you listen to young women, they say..... I want to make a difference

Being a navigator is an ideal position for un or barely educated air heads to make a difference

It’s about time people in Nebraska had a site to go to where they can relieve themselves. A lot of them had been holding it for so long that they were starting to lose their sight from all of the squinting that they were doing.

After she enters "Accept" on am application she has no idea as to the horrors that can befall that application.
