Well, this should be the nail in the coffin, right here.
And it isn’t even surprising given that ObamaCare Navigators aren’t properly screened, or trained and even convicted felons can get the job. But who could have predicted that James O’Keefe would be able to get them encouraging fraud on camera, this soon. Holy cow.
Here’s Project Veritas, once again doing God’s work….(and the MSM’s):
The Obama Administration’s campaign to sign everyone up for government healthcare inspired Project Veritas to go straight to the source and investigate what’s really going on.
What we found is shocking: navigators, in positions of public trust, told our undercover journalists to lie and defraud the government. Over and over again.
Yes, as if the roll-out of Obamacare hasn’t been disastrous enough, Project Veritas has caught Obamacare navigators counseling citizens to lie about their income and deceive the IRS, commit fraud on applications by not reporting full health history, and worse.
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.”
It gets worse! O’Keefe found that Enroll America appears to be sharing data and working with Battleground Texas – the Democrat PAC dedicated to turning Texas blue…One of the navigators actually thinks he’s working for the DNC…
Part one of a series…
What the hell is going on in Texas? Some kind of vote mining operation? Shut it down. Shut the whole damn thing down.

O’Reilly kicked off “The Factor” Monday night with the O’Keefe video showing Obamacare navigators committing fraud.
Andrew McCarthy, NRO: Obama’s Massive Fraud:
If you like your health-care plan, you will be able to keep your health-care plan. Period.” How serious was this lie, repeated by Barack Obama with such beguiling regularity? Well, how would the Justice Department be dealing with it if it had been uttered by, say, the president of an insurance company rather than the president of the United States?
Fraud is a serious federal felony, usually punishable by up to 20 years’ imprisonment — with every repetition of a fraudulent communication chargeable as a separate crime. In computing sentences, federal sentencing guidelines factor in such considerations as the dollar value of the fraud, the number of victims, and the degree to which the offender’s treachery breaches any special fiduciary duties he owes. Cases of multi-million-dollar corporate frauds — to say nothing of multi-billion-dollar, Bernie Madoff–level scams that nevertheless pale beside Obamacare’s dimensions — often result in terms amounting to decades in the slammer.
National Urban League is among several other left-wing, Obama Friendly organizations riding the Obamacare navigator gravy train: Planned Parenthood, and Virginia Poverty Law Center Inc. and the United Labor Unions Council Local 100 are also helping Obama inflict “his signature achievement” on America.
We now hear that Wade Rathke, the former activist for the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), who founded ACORN, and is an Executive Board member of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is now providing navigators for ObamaCare. Rathke describes himself as someone who is dedicated to “winning social justice, workers’ rights, and a democracy where ‘the people shall rule’” – (i.e. he’s a Socialist.) ACORN was shut down in 2009 after citizen journalists James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles shined a much needed spotlight on their corrupt identity fraud and voter fraud operation. Prior to that, our current POTUS had an intimate and longstanding association with the group.
It shouldn’t be a shock that the shady ACORN spin-off Rathke now leads, has been tapped to help people enroll in Obamacare exchanges but it should enrage American taxpayers that members of the group are collecting taxpayer money for their work despite Congress’ efforts to cut ACORN and its affiliates off from government funding.
Fox News Reports:
The United Labor Unions Council Local 100, a New Orleans-based nonprofit, announced last month it would take part in a multi-state “navigator” drive to help people enroll in President Obama’s health care plan. The labor council was established by ACORN founder Wade Rathke after his larger group was broken up amid scandal in 2009 and banned from receiving taxpayer funds.
But the group went bankrupt after a journalist’s sting operation caught employees allegedly telling clients how to cheat on taxes, causing donations to dry up and lawmakers to cut off public funding.
Epstein said the ban on funding to ACORN-related groups was mysteriously dropped from the key Health and Human Services appropriations bill in the most recent continuing resolution, which Congress uses to fund the government absent formal budgets. He said there appears to be little oversight as to who gets Navigator grants.
The United Labor Unions (ULU) Local 100 is helping to navigate people into the marketplaces in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas under the Affordable Care Act. Republicans in Congress need to step up and do something about this.
