Skip to comments.Sebelius: Obamacare Navigators Don't Need Criminal Background Checks
Posted on 11/06/2013 10:09:31 AM PST by yoe
"So I want to ask you about the navigators," said Senator John Cornyn at a hearing today on Capitol Hill. "The president is in Dallas, Texas today, touting the navigator program, which, as you know, are people who are hired to help people navigate the Affordable Care Act. But I would just like to ask you this question, if you would answer it: Isn't it true that there is no federal requirement for navigators to undergo a criminal background check, even though they will receive personal -- sensitive personal -- information from the individuals they help to sign-up for the Affordable Care Act?"
"That is true," said Sebelius. "States could add an additional background checks and other features, but it is not part of the federal requirement"
"So a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information from an individual unbeknownst to them?"
"That is possible," said Sebelius.

Freepers call your State Attorney General and demand some answers.
Democrats are using this hearing as a forum for unbridled vitriol against the Tea Party and Republicans...unprofessional and totally uncalled for.
What a crock of unmitigated horses##t
Your Navigator is an ID thief, he just wants all your bank account info, no biggie.
BTW, the link goes to their daily blog not the blog entry/article itself. Meaning it won’t be there tomorrow.
Use this link in the future:
Considering the fact that their bosses Obama and Sibellius are criminals in themselves, WHY SHOULD they?
When are Americans going to wake and realize they have been film-flamed and bamboozled by the Media, Hollyweird, and the DNC into voting again and again for people who are not only MARXISTS, but RACIST Marxists at THAT??
Calm down people.
This makes a lot of sense.
Why should lowly ObamaScare Navigators have to undergo a more stringent background check than President Obama?
This is payback to the Former Acorn commies. The funding of the organization was cut due to bad PR and their dirty deeds.
So Now they hire the same criminals as Navigators.
This is incredible.
My dad sells life and health insurance as a one-man shop.
You cannot be a felon and sell life and health insurance.
These navigators are selling insurance, essentially. They are doing all the things an insurance salesman does, help people look at pros and cons of various plans, explaining options, getting them signed up for a plan.
It is extremely bullsh1t they can have felons getting their hands on this information and selling insurance when private insurance folks cannot have felonies on their record and sell policies.
RESET COMING Cruella. RESET coming.
Recently our illustrious Attorney General ordered HR to stop doing criminal background checks on prospective federal employees because it’s RACIST !
But, should anyone expect them to actually DO something about a runaway executive branch . . .
There is very little time to peacefully restore the republic.
The main Navigators are illegal aliens from
Peru, and Obama’s other favored nations and religions.
I think we see when stuff begins to double down, where many of the gop elite and rinos are going to go. they will become the “more reserved” wing of the democrat apparatchik.
Insert “no steenking” before the words “criminal background checks”
“Not only is it possible,” said Sebelius, “but we care so little that I don’t even mind saying so in front of you people.”
Back ground checks for legal gun buyers, but NO back ground checks for navigators. Another dark day in the Obamanation.
Holder, like his boss, is a black racist.
I think Obama has connections with the Nation of Islam and hates all white people.
Stalkers and rapists’ dream job...
She sounds good on the phone... maybe even able to get height and weight as well... and her address, etc...
In all the hand wringing over the increased cost of insurance under ObamaScare almost no one mentions the tremendous cost of the huge new bureaucrat the democrats created to run the program.
And most of the jobs are just needless busywork for Obama supporters and democrat victim groups.
Only people who are weak in the head could have believed Obama when he said ObamaScare would:
