States, alarmed by the lack of background screening and restrictions on Obamacare’s “navigators” – who are paid tax dollars to recruit participants for the health insurance scheme – have begun preparing protections for their citizens.
More than 120 federal grants have been handed out in nearly three dozen states for various “community” organizations to be paid to recruit Obamacare participants. The grants amount to hundreds of millions of dollars.
The list of grant recipients, according to one organization monitoring the activity, “is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of the left-wing political machine.” It includes groups with ACORN-ties such as the Southern United Neighborhoods and the Structured Employment Economic Development Corp, or SEEDC.
SEEDC, according to the Goldwater Institute, “recently settled a $1.725 million lawsuit for fraud committed under another government program.”
“The American people have a right to be concerned about the agendas and integrity of these groups,” said Arizona state Rep. Paul Boyer of Phoenix, who is working on the issue.
“Once again we are seeing the federal government play favorites with public funds, and in this case under the guise of helping people smoothly transition to a marketplace that was supposed to simplify the process to begin with.”
