Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse in the wake of the Obamacare rollout, conservative videographer James O’Keefe has launched a shocking new video showing Obamacare “navigators” counseling clients on the best ways to game the system and evade the stringent new health care regulations. Via National Review:
“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 [undercover] 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 now.”
Senator Cornyn has called on President Obama to halt the navigators program completely, saying that the collective actions taken by Obamacare’s agents are “yet another broken piece of a deeply flawed system.”
Last week, HHS Secretary Sebelius admitted before Congress that the lack of background checks for these navigatiors could put the private information of millions of Americans at risk. Now, we have evidence that these same navigators are actively encouraging their clients to engage in fraud at the expense of taxpayers.
It is unacceptable for Barack Obama to put big government overreach above protecting the interests of the American people. It’s time to send a strong message to the Administration that we the people are through trusting this Administration with our personal health care choices.
