    The Truth about Navigators

    http://www.nationalreview.com/articl...tors-john-fund

    Yeah I can see how this is going to end well... Basically it shows that the corruption is already rampant with the AHA Navigators.


    James O’Keefe, the guerrilla videographer who helped bring down ACORN (the “community organizing” group that Barack Obama worked for as a lawyer and trainer) and got NPR’s president fired, is back.


    This time, his undercover investigators focused on Obamacare’s “navigators,” the nearly 50,000 people who, in the words of the Department of Health and Human Services, “will serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans” on the Obamacare exchanges (at least when they’re finally working). The total value of grants doled out for nonprofits and community organizations to hire navigators has topped $67 million nationwide, and some of the money is going to a group run by ACORN’s highly controversial founder.


    The events of O’Keefe’s video of a Texas navigator site run by the National Urban League are a familiar sight to viewers of his past efforts exposing Medicaid and voter fraud. Government-paid workers supposedly trained to uphold the law advise clients on how to lie on government forms, evade legal requirements, and ignore proper procedures.


    “You lie because your premiums will be higher,” one navigator advises an investigator for O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, who tells the worker he sometimes smokes. “Don’t tell them that. Don’t tell ’em.”


    The investigator then poses as a low-income worker at a university who has unreported cash income on the side, worrying about how that might affect his premium subsidies. That’s no problem for a navigator, who says, “Don’t get yourself in trouble by declaring it now.”


    “Yeah, it didn’t happen,” another navigator says. One more chimes in: “Never report it.”Records show that the National Urban League was paid $376,000 by the federal government for its Obamacare outreach in Texas.


    O’Keefe’s cameras then visit Enroll America, a nationwide nonprofit group that has launched a multi-state grassroots campaign to help millions of Americans sign up for health coverage. Daniel Clayton of Enroll America says the group is “purely nonprofit. It’s not partisan, non-political.” But when Brian Pendleton of Enroll America is introduced at a speaking engagement, Enroll America is described as “the official group for the DNC [Democratic National Committee].”


    Enroll America, O’Keefe reports, appears to be sharing data and working directly with an explicitly political group called Battleground Texas, activities that he notes “are prohibited unless certain conditions are met.” Adrian Bell, the regional field director for Battleground Texas, proudly notes the group was “started by President Obama’s national field director” and is “dedicated to turning Texas blue.”
    I couldn't get the whole article to copy here is the video:

    Obamacare Navigator Manual Shows Path To Identity Theft

    By Loren Heal on September 17, 2013

    As part of the complex montrosity known as Obamacare, people signing up for health insurance can have the help of Navigators - people with little training or experience wading through the most complex law ever passed. The manual for the program describes a system that will lead to privacy violations, personal embarrassment, and identity theft.

    I read the Navigator manual in the mindset of information security: the set of practices and principles used to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and accessiblity of information systems.

    Obamacare chartAlong the way, I kept thinking; why do we need a program so complex that we then need "Navigators" to help us wade through it?

    Descriptions of practices that violate information security principles are rampant throughout the Navigator manual, but the portion on data safeguards has me crying into my coffee.

    I watched a few minutes and then turned it off when O'Keefe started his cowboy dance. When you ask someone leading questions and that person's job is to aid people what do you think would happen? Hey lady making 10.00 per hour give me tax advice! O'Keefe's productions are exactly that, productions.
