The moment that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a Senate panel that Obamacare “navigators” – those hired to help Americans weave through the labyrinth of the law’s rules and regulations – could be convicted felons, I began a mental countdown of how long it would take before the first story showcasing Sebelius’ incredible admission broke.
It took six days.
On Nov. 6, in response to a question from Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, who asked Sebelius if it was true that, because there is no federal background check requirement for Obamacare navigators, some of those who are eventually hired could be criminals, the HHS chief replied, “That is possible.” (Background checks for exercising your Second Amendment rights, but not for anyone dealing with your personal information.)
On Nov. 12, news broke that undercover videographer James O’Keefe – the guy who helped bring down ACORN (the “community organizing” group that Barack Obama worked for as a lawyer and trainer) and got National Public Radio’s president fired – had produced a new video showing corruption and illegal activity by none other than Obamacare navigators (see the video here).
