Obama-Care Operator Fired For Telling The Truth

From the Daily Caller:

Obamacare operator fired after Hannity radio call; Hannity to give her a year’s salary

By Jeff Poor | October 24, 2013

An Obamacare phone operator announced Thursday on Sean Hannity’s radio show that she had been fired after Hannity aired a prior phone call with her earlier this week.

On Monday, Hannity called an Obamacare hotline and a conversation with the woman, Erling Davis, in which he pressed her for details about the lackluster rollout of Obamacare. That phone call led to her termination from the private contractor where she worked, Davis said when Hannity interviewed her Thursday. Hannity then promised to give her a year’s salary.

“They fired me from my job,” Davis said. The host asked her to lay out the details of the situation, and she explained how things unfolded leading up to her firing.

“The day I received the call from the radio station, I had to go pick up my best friend that night, and then someone was like, ‘Someone was looking for you,’” Davis said. “But, I don’t know who that person is. So I was like, well I’m going to come back here in the morning because I had to go back to work. So the next day I came back and they had, like, two people escort me upstairs to H.R. And then it was three head people and me, we sat down, and so I’m like, ‘Why am I up here?’ I figured, OK, they want to talk about the phone call incident.”

“Then the lady sitting behind the desk — I don’t know what their name is, but the lady that was sitting behind the desk, I guess called up another head lady, and they had her on speakerphone on her cell phone, so the lady was talking, and I couldn’t really understand what she was saying because she had me on speakerphone,” Davis continued. “I remember her saying, ‘We can’t have this type of stuff going on here, so we have to release you.’ …

Davis, a mother of two, revealed she had only been working there since September. But as show of goodwill, Hannity said he would give her a year’s salary, tax-free at $26,000, and help her find a new job.

But just think of the irony here. This poor woman was fired for merely telling the truth about people’s reaction to the Obama-Care website. Meanwhile, Kathleen Sebelius still has her job. And Ms. Erling Davis is a black mother of two. Where is the ‘social justice’? Where is the NAACP and the ACLU? Where are the Reverends Sharpton and Jackson?

In fact, Ms. Davis went on to say that was fired because she talked to the news media, which she was told, is against the company’s regulations:

HANNITY: And what was the specific reason? When they sat you down, did they give you a specific reason?

DAVIS: They said that no contact with the media. No type of media whatsoever. We’re not allowed to do that at that company.

HANNITY: Meaning, in other words, they didn’t tell you before you were hired, they didn’t tell you during your training, but then they told you after the fact that you aren’t allowed to be on the media if somebody called in. It’s not your fault I called…

Is that restriction imposed on the companies who have been contracted to handle the Obama-Care exchanges? If so, that is a violation of the Constitution, which limits the federal government powers to restrict one’s freedom of speech, unless it is a matter of vital national security.

Of course, we realize we are thinking of the ancient past, when the federal government was still limited by the Constitution.
