ObamaCare Navigators Bring Corruption to a Neighborhood Near You

Obamacare Navigator Fraud
“You lie because your premiums will be higher,” James O’Keefe’s latest undercover video for Project Veritas shows one ObamaCare navigator advising one of O’Keefe’s guerilla journalists, who just told the navigator he sometimes smokes. “Don’t tell them that. Don’t tell ’em.”

One of the navigators exposed in O’Keefe’s video pretty well sums-up the Third World-style corruption behind the entire enterprise of drafting, selling, passing and implementing ObamaCare: “I always lie on mine,” says she.

However, there are, as Claude Frédéric Bastiat observed so presciently, two kinds of “plunder” or corruption: legal and illegal. 

One, the illegality O’Keefe documented, is the kind of everyday venality that laws have been passed to prohibit and punish since the dawn of lawmaking. Wrong as outright theft and lying by government employees or contractors is, the other kind of corruption is much more damaging.

This is the “plunder” or corruption that is legal and has been institutionalized into law on a regular basis by Barack Obama and his radical liberal allies in Congress.

This is the kind of corruption that has paid nonprofits and community organizations some $67 million to hire navigators nationwide to bring corruption and legal plunder to a neighborhood near you.

According to an article by John Fund for National Review Online, records show that the National Urban League, employer of the navigator who told O’Keefe’s guerilla journalist to lie, was paid $376,000 by the federal government for its Obamacare outreach in Texas.

Fund further reported that “In Texas, some of those people work for Local 100 United Labor Unions, a New Orleans group run by ACORN founder Wade Rathke. Local 100 is a “sub-grantee” providing navigators for the Southern United Neighborhoods group, which received a $600,678 grant to promote Obamacare enrollment. It also received a $270,193 grant for similar work in Arkansas and a $486,123 grant for Louisiana.”

Even more troubling to those who watch for corruption in the political process is the close association between navigators and Obama-associated political organizing groups.

Fund noted that Daniel Clayton of Enroll America says his group is “purely nonprofit. It’s not partisan, non-political.” But when Brian Pendleton of Enroll America is introduced at a speaking engagement, Enroll America is described as “the official group for the DNC [Democratic National Committee].”

Enroll America, O’Keefe reports, “appears to be sharing data and working directly with an explicitly political group called Battleground Texas, activities that he notes ‘are prohibited unless certain conditions are met.’ Adrian Bell, the regional field director for Battleground Texas, proudly notes the group was ‘started by President Obama’s national field director’ and is ‘dedicated to turning Texas blue’.”

Fund went on to observe that “one of the most serious things undermining its [ObamaCare’s] credibility is the Obama administration’s seemingly complete indifference to corruption within one of the key groups tasked with its implementation.”

Indifference?

As we see it, the corruption is built into the system. ObamaCare is a vast wealth transfer mechanism designed to institute an all-pervasive system of legal corruption to buy votes for Democrats by, as Bastiat stated it so eloquently, making plunder universal under the pretense of organizing it.
