UNREAL … HHS Sec. Sebelius Admits to Senate Panel that Obamacare Navigators Don’t Need Criminal Background Checks … A Convicted Felon Could be a Navigator


The Obamacare “Navigators,” the very people who Americans give their person information to and are supposed to help navigate individuals through Obamacare are not required under federal guidelines are not required to undergo criminal background checks. How on earth could the government open Americans up to such identity theft and fraud? Isn’t there enough fraud in healthcare without Obama and his minions opening up more individuals to more?  How could this possibly be considered HIPAA compliant?

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admits in a Senate hearing on Obamacare that a felon could be a navigator. And you think the worst part of Obamacare is the website. It would appear your biggest problems may occur once you log on. Good grief, is there any aspect of Obama care that is worth a damn! How could anything this poorly constructed ever get out of the planing stage of project management?

From The Weekly Standard:

“So I want to ask you about the navigators,” said Senator John Cornyn at a hearing today on Capitol Hill. “The president is in Dallas, Texas today, touting the navigator program, which, as you know, are people who are hired to help people navigate the Affordable Care Act. But I would just like to ask you this question, if you would answer it: Isn’t it true that there is no federal requirement for navigators to undergo a criminal background check, even though they will receive personal — sensitive personal — information from the individuals they help to sign-up for the Affordable Care Act?”

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

“So a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personal information from an individual unbeknownst to them?”

“That is possible,” said Sebelius.

This must be a part of Obama’s felon jobs program.
