New Report Says Obamacare Navigator Program Marred by Mismanagement, Confusion

A new report produced by Rep. Darrell Issa's House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform reveals that Obamacare's controversial "Navigator and Assister" program has suffered from chronic poor management, resulting in widespread disarray, since the law's October 1 launch date. An advanced copy of the document obtained by Townhall raises a number of competency and security concerns. Below is a brief summary of its revelations and conclusions:

 (1) "The preliminary staff report the Committee released on September 18, 2013 outlined concerns that lax Navigator and Assister training requirements and vague marketing standards increased the likelihood of identity theft for consumers," the report reads. "Despite several letters, hearings, staff briefings, and transcribed interviews with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services officials responsible for the program, HHS failed to heed the Committee’s warnings. And, as predicted, after open enrollment began, news reports revealed poorly-trained Navigators gave consumers incorrect information about the health care exchanges, violated HHS rules and procedures, and even encouraged applicants to commit tax fraud in some instances."

(2) "Major problems" have plagued the navigator program's performance, the committee's verdict concludes. These issues caused confusion on basic enrollment procedures and led to faulty advice and guidance being relayed to consumers. Some assisters allegedly urged customers to violate the law, while others broke the rules themselves. HHS officials responsible for the Obamacare navigator operation reportedly discovered several of these breaches through external media reports, rather than "internal oversight procedures," which the report suggests is indicative of a "lax" culture of self-policing.

The oblameacare debauckle is nothing more than a money pit, one that is bottomless. Balance a Budget?  Never will it happen with these insane leaders, or so they call themselves. Abolish this oblameacare, yes "law of the land" BAD LAWS CAN BE REPEALED!

Now seeing as congress knows about this, that they get off their asses, and do what's right by the American people, and they wonder why people are not signing up and states want to be rid of this mess. Congress needs to stop being bullied and start the process of impeaching this mad man.



The Obumocare rollout uses the same network, systems, community organizers, ACorn, etc as they did for the Obumo campaigns and fundraising.   They had no problem... then.    Why now?   Because this  is set up to drain the country, people, agencies.   Billions of $$$$$ have been drained into these Dem Run Organizations and then just disappeared.   It will continue to be a disaster  until  the Dems  have  squeezed every drop of blood out of the people.    

The "Navigator" program is just yet another COMMUNIST government ploy to enroll and enlist millions of those "Great Unwashed" ( who illegally elected him ) Bleeders of the system back on the government "doles", thus giving his COMMIE minions a large voting base to keep his COMMIE "Progressive Socialists" in power. The COMMUNIST beat marches ever onward, following orders from the COMMIE "Flim Flam Man", who must retain his "Dictatorial" powers! Why not use "Criminals" in the program?

Gee willigers! Ya' mean the govt ISN'T acting in our best interest???

   Wjo would have thought  with the smartest regime in history. The media touted then administration that Bonzo put in place as the most educated in history… they all went to college didn't they? They all were professors weren't they? They all probably never worked a day in their lives  didn't they? Probably none even managed a banana stand didn't they?

  We are in very deep sewage and the fools keep saying spend spend and  now the Republican elites are on board with Bonzo.

   You forgot to mention all the criminality involved  !

remember that they put in a lot of acorn people...not the brightest bulbs in the country...I am currently rechecking with my areas voting place to make sure I am registered...I want these freaks that are causing this destruction of our country out of office...and it will be anything and anybody not associated with obamacare, fast and furious, Benghazi, irs and the nsa.

Good advice to check your VOTER REGISTRATION status. Keep knowledgeable on political news from FOXNEWS.

Have a great day.

We send "intelligent, well-educated people"  to Washington to serve US. , only to discover that Congress is obviously smoking "funny weed" on their many breaks. Apparently, the EPA is NOT monitoring the air & water pollution in the Washington Beltway.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
