Obamacare Operator Fired After Taking Call From Hannity; Hannity To Give Her A Year's Salary
On the top of Thursday's broadcast of his radio show, Sean Hannity revealed Erling Davis, the Obamacare operator he called early in his Monday show, got fired. Hannity quizzed her on how well the law is being received by applicants and she revealed no one liked it. Hannity had Davis on his show today and revealed he will give her a year's salary of $26,000 and help her find a new job.

I think his generosity is echoed in hearts across America!
Not surprising. They do a crappy job of implementing a system that should never have come to be, put her in the position of being out in front to hawk it, then get mad when she tells the truth. Typical collectivist.
$26,000 a year? She must only work 29 hours a week so they don’t have to pay her healthcare insurance.
Honesty in this regime will get you canned (or maybe worse!).
I hope there are several people watching her back!!
Just as I expected. This regime doesn’t tolerate criticism.
So the only person getting the sack for Obamacare is an underpaid minion.
Why do I feel like this is a wasted gesture on Hannity’s part? Likely the left is laughing themselves silly that an extreme right-winger is out $26k, especially for a worker who wouldn’t goose-step to Obama’s orders.
Who was she working for. You can’t just fire a fed like that. If a contractor, she may have a wrongful dismissal case.
Or maybe she was a disgruntled employee on her way out the door anyhow. It would be nice to know the background.
I once had a boss who insited I keep painting over a RIVER of hand lotion...dripping down the wall of a hospital restroom.
it would have been so easily removed but he wanted to save time....
he may have been related to Odrama!
0dumbo and all his minions are the biggest pieces of carp breathing
I hope she gets the chance to air her case. I hope she feels safe enough to do so.
So, I guess a federal worker CAN be fired, but only if you do the right thing and talk to a conservative or someone who cares about the country, then and only then does it violate federal or fed union rules.
But but.....The Domocrats are FOR the little guy.
thus far..but I will guess that the careers of many poltical types will be taking a dirt nap for this before its all said and done.
Sue their their fascist azz! $50 million is a nice round number.
We don’t care; we don’t have to. We’re Obamacare.
When Politeness Crosses the Red Line into Forthrightness the offender must be severely punished. HHS rule number 1
For Later. Did I bookmark this once already?
I believe she was getting $12 an hour. It’s a private contractor, not the government.
Hannity said he didn’t to “go after” the company and I thought, “why not?”
Name them, and the snarky supervisor that fired her, along with all of the management staff listed. Expose them, Shame them and Shun them.
Clog up their emails and phone lines.
I ran call centers like this. BIG call centers. With more than a thousand reps across our business unit.
She would have gotten fired, or at least reprimanded severely.
Here is why: It has nothing to do with her opinion. But, I do not pay her to express her opinion to customers or potential customers. There is a reason she has scripts to work from. That reason is to ensure that all of our contacts get the exact same explanation of our products, services and policies. Deviating from that will result in mixed messages and incorrect information.
Next, he identified himself as a member of the media. As soon as she opens her mouth on the air, she is representing the company and we are liable for whatever she says. It is easier to transfer the media person to our information and media office. That way we can make sure the company is protected and the individual is protected.
I worked for a publicly traded financial services company. If one of our reps, only on the phone for two weeks, started talking like that to Sean Hannity it would have impacted our stock price and potentially affected our fair lending statutes and what not.
Before they touched a phone at our office, the reps trained and were tested about these things.
So, yeah, she would have been fired. AND everyone else would get another dose of training.
But, as I listened to it live, she did a fine job. Up until she went off the script. You could tell she wasn’t the brightest bulb in the circuit. Hannity is doing the right thing by picking up her tab for the year. I used to hate when reporters would call up and pull that crap.
When you are dealing with an emergency like this, with this number of calls, and with this type of exposure, you will find this happening all of the time. Your reps MUST know how to get this call off the line and a media rep pretty damned fast.
A contractor. She claims never at hiring or training did they ever tell them they couldn’t talk to media (of course they should have) or have them sign anything as policy.
They got mad she told the truth during her interview with Hannity on Monday.
Democrats don’t love God and serve their fellowman by actions such as these.
So this is the lady responsible for the mismanagement of the healthcare.gov design and the lack of adequate testing! I knew the adminstration would figure out who was responsible and dole out some consequences.
I wonder if she was also involved in running guns to Mexico, using the IRS to target conservatives and failing to summon help at Benghazi?
But did she get a Ruth’s Chris gift certificate ?
breathing pieces of carp which are bottom feeders
AND pieces of crap
I heard her when he called (today and the other day). I was impressed with her demeanor.
[shrug] No explaining morons.
I worked for guys like that! “Hurry up and make it look good!”
“Sue their their fascist azz! $50 million is a nice round number. “
That’s taxpayer money.
I doubt very much that the real obumacare operators look so pleasant, intelligent, ambitious, and y’all know the other one.
I heard that call ... Hannity was trying to be nice ... poor lady was required to read from a script (a fairly inane script) and had some sort of supervisor type giving orders just out of hearing range. It was quite clear that the 0bamacare system is AFU.
I hope she can find a real job; jolly decent of Hannity to give her a hand.
Meanwhile, 0bamacare should be abolished in its entirety. It cannot be fixed.
Telling the truth could get a person fired in ANY workplace in America. Think about it. With each passing day there are more and more things that are true that no employee dare discuss.
For as much heat as Hannity gets in this forum, I am surprised no one has ripped him for being too cheap. The guy is worth millions and millions of dollars, and because of his prank he gets both the mileage from his interview and only has to give up 26K. /sarc
You are 100% correct.
She was very polite and definitely someone I would want on inbound B2C calls but we have a PR firm for media and that’s where I would want the snarky reporters going. Can’t make an exception for one and not for all.
I know there’s some who dislike Hannity but I’m glad he’s willing to put up his money in this case.
Everyone who works for this government is an accomplice. The only way to reduce government is for all accomplices to quit.
ONE RINGY DINGY... TWO RINGY DINGYS...
That’s exactly right. Shame and humiliation for underperformance are great levelers. It is absolutely necessary to name names, companies, etc. Put the blame where it belongs loudly and clearly. The Kenyan is an incompetent dumbass and so are his minions. And by the way-—who takes these dead end jobs pushing his krap, making up rules, excelling in non customer service-—or customer non service? Like say park police or obamacare call center geniuses?
Daryl Issa will launch an investigation into this and find...nothing.
So, you ran call centers?
Are you the call centers that do telemarketing. . .you know, the evil ones that ignore the Do Not Call list, that put your number on some sort of auto re-dial if you hang up on them? The same call centers (telemarketers) that ring-ring-ring when ignored when call-screened?
The same call centers that hang up on you when you ask who they represent/are so you can file a FTC complaint?
Hanging up ensures you don’t get the information and the caller gets onto the next person straightaway.
The same call centers that sell your phone number if you get a “live one” to answer the phone, thereby exponentially expanding the harassing telemarketing calls?
Scripts are mindless and are not responsive and not any better than recorded auto-responses that demand you to TALK to a machine when the machine asks you a question, thereby lowering you to the level of a machine. . .talking to a machine. . .come on.
And if you get to a person, they read a mindless script and are no better than a machine.
“It is easier to transfer the media person to our information and media office” Color me skeptical on that, as it is hard as heck to get transferred to a supervisor, I can’t imagine how hard it would be to get in contact with a media rep in a call center. . .when the call center never identifies who they are.
“When you are dealing with an emergency like this” What emergency?
If you are not of that ilk or used those tactics, then never-mind.
Hey phone call center doofus. She was answering a call that was shouted out by the president of the United States.
I hope you burn in hell, for you should.
He did it in a way there is no tax liability.
I was only wondering why he didn’t offer the third person in her family a 13K like the other two got.
Wow! Look at the size of that Rolodex!
Right on the money.
