Kathleen Sebelius admits convicted felons can become Obamacare navigators

November 6, 2013

  I remember hearing a report that convicted felons could become Obamacare navigators and I swear that I wrote a post about it not all that long ago but I cannot seem to find it so perhaps that was a story that I never got to. I find that hard to believe but the Obama regime throws so much at us that perhaps I let it fall through the cracks. But anyway, today Kathleen Sebelius was asked if this were true and she admitted it was:

That is true,” Sebelius replied. “States could have an additional background check and other features, but it is not part of the federal requirement”

  So convicted felons, which potentially could include people convicted of identity theft, will have access to your personal information if you chose to seek their guidance through the entanglement known as Obamacare. What could possibly go wrong here?!

  But she goes on to say that the individual states could pass laws to include background checks on people who are seeking to become employed as Obamacare navigators.

  Of course we have already seen how the Obama regime handles states which pass laws with which they do not agree–the Department of Injustice sues them for not conforming to federal law, and in many instances these lawsuits have come in regards to background checks dealing with the issue of illegal immigration, so does anyone really believe the Obama regime will sit idly by as states pass laws to strengthen background checks on potential Obamacare navigators?

Update: I found my original post on this issue, you can read it here.

    The Obamites don’t care your identity is stolen. They really don’t care. These are some real sick puppies we have in this administration.

      No they don’t and any effort to do anything about this will be met with personal attacks.

    Our psychic powers are amazing aren’t they? Most of this known years ago, and we were told to put our tin foil away. Finally the chickens are indeed coming home.

    Oh I saw this piece of obvious political grandstanding by Senator Cornyn of Texas. What total BS! If I had been her I would have said, “Sure, and a psychopath could become a U.S. Senator. There’s no mental health background check. Life entails risks. But do you think it’s likely to happen?”

    See, the people who are the ACA “navigators” are mostly hospital staff, or local insurance agents, people well-known in their communities, who already have a vested interest in making sure the people they sign up have a positive experience. They aren’t hiring people off the street like they do census-takers or signature gatherers for petitions.

      Are you serious?

      An illegal alien is a navigator in NY and one in Lawrence, KS, has an outstanding arrest warrant. Hey, nothing to be concerned about…right?

      “As Volpe pointed out, the House Oversight Committee recently issued a report highlighting the personal security risks involved with handing over sensitive consumer information to such workers — who are not required to undergo background checks.

      “[T]he main concern for consumers is the heightened risk of identity theft and financial loss from a poorly managed outreach campaign,” the Oversight Committee report read. “Navigators and Assisters will come into contact with a plethora of personally identifiable information (PII), including an applicant’s Social Security number, date of birth and income, as well as the PII of everyone in an applicant’s household.”

        Yeah, it’s a conspiracy theorist’s dream. In my town of 9,000, a county seat, the navigators are a hospital administrator, and a well-known insurance agent. Who’s going to commit the identity theft?


      • November 7, 2013 3:47 am

        Hmmm….I see. So, because it’s very unlikely that a navigator in YOUR town would be an identity thief, the same is true for the rest of the Country….? Is that your contention?


      • November 7, 2013 6:33 am

        Small towns like the one you live in are a different story than living in the big city, where people are less known to each other.


    • November 7, 2013 6:32 am

      That may be fine for small communities, but in big cities like Boston and New York the situation is ripe for abuse.

      “Sure, and a psychopath could become a U.S. Senator”
      Man, if I were a birther I could have a field day with that line! But I will say he is a pathological liar.

    This is an identity thief’s dream! At our expense, of course.

    And, if you recall, I think it was Dep of Labor that wanted to punish companies for using background checks in hiring decisions.

    Is it unlikely that Acorn is the ni__er lurking in the navigator woodpile?

    The Rep can never stick to the main topic a badly designed and implemented website. They have to wander off into the weeds on extraneous issues. The larger issue is identity theft. The Healthcare website is poorly designed and I think it lacks basic encryption. This should be the focus. From what I have read it appears the Rep were aware or should have been aware of problems with the website but chose to ignore the warning signs.
