Video: Navigators Tell O-Care Applicants To Lie

From James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas:

EXPOSED: Obamacare Fraud Committed on Camera

NOV 12, 2013

Navigators counsel applicants to “just lie.”

NEW YORK, NY – Today Project Veritas released a new investigation exposing Obamacare navigators counseling applicants to lie about their income and deceive the IRS, commit fraud on applications by not reporting full health history, and more.

Despite reassurances that "fraud could not be committed," clearly, that is not the case. Obamacare Navigators counseled applicants by saying: "You lie because your premiums will be higher." "Never report it… I always lie on my applications." "It didn’t happen."

“This investigation shows just how vulnerable Obamacare is to fraud,” said James O’Keefe. “Taxpayers loose [sic] billions due to Medicare fraud and there is a clear possibility of billions more being wasted under a government-run health care system costing taxpayers $1.7 trillion.”

This is just the first video in a series of Obamacare investigations to be released in the coming weeks. The purpose of these investigations is not to advocate for defunding or the repeal of Obamacare but to expose waste, fraud, and abuse within the system.

Note that even O’Keefe and his band are afraid of being called crazy radicals. So they don’t dare call for repealing or defunding Obama-Care.

Meanwhile, here in a related story from John Fund at National Review:

Background Checks as the New Racism

By John Fund | November 11, 2013

… Last week, Senator John Cornyn (R., Texas) grilled Kathleen Sebelius, the Health and Human Services secretary, about why the 45,000 “navigators” who assist people in signing up for Obamacare aren’t required to undergo a criminal-background check, even though they handle sensitive personal information.

“So a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information from an individual unbeknownst to them?” Cornyn asked her. “That is possible,” said Sebelius, noting that states could always impose their own requirements — as some have done.

[Meanwhile] the risk that unscrupulous or untrustworthy people could hold federally funded jobs or own guns certainly concerns the Obama administration in other contexts. The Office of Personnel Management conducts more than 2 million background checks a year for federal jobs. The FBI conducted just shy of 20 million background checks on gun owners in 2012…

So given all of the background checks at the federal level, why not include the Obamacare navigators? …

[Because] there is an active campaign on the left to “ban the box,” or remove the checkbox question that’s common on job applications: “Have you ever been convicted of a felony?” …

The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a “guidance” last year saying that employers must establish that an inquiry into an applicant’s criminal record is a “business necessity” before they can make the inquiry. Otherwise, the employer could face employment-discrimination lawsuits under the theory that such background checks have a “disparate impact” on African Americans and Hispanics and are therefore unfair…

Even worse, the EEOC has pursued employers that have a clear “business necessity” interest in the integrity of their employees, such as G4S Secure Solutions Pennsylvania, a firm that provides security guards for nuclear power plants and other sensitive sites. The EEOC went after the security firm for not hiring an individual convicted twice of burglary. G4S thought it was merely being prudent: Pennsylvania law forbids the hiring of individuals as security guards if they have felony convictions…

And nuclear power plants don’t even have all of the personal information that Obama-Care will. And knowledge is power.

    WANTED :
    Workers convicted of felonies for secure data gathering positions. Pay scale commensurate with experience. If you have stolen and lied and cheated people you will be given a headstart since your life skillset already includes most of the necessary skills to execute job duties. If your conviction involved a long stay in a federal facility, you will be allowed to skip government fraud training.

    Benefits include, SNAP, Obamacare, Food Stamps, Welfare, and double unemployment payments during government shutdowns. Ambition is discouraged. Honesty is discouraged. Citizenship is acceptable, but not required.
