Obamacare

This spring, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee lawyers were also told by HHS that, despite the fact that navigators will have access to sensitive data such as Social Security numbers and tax returns, there will be no criminal background checks required for them. Indeed, they won’t even have to have high-school diplomas. Both U.S. Census Bureau and IRS employees must meet those minimum standards, if only because no one wants someone who has been convicted of identity theft getting near Americans’ personal records. But HHS is unconcerned. It points out that navigators will have to take a 20–30 hour online course about how the 1,200-page law works, which, given its demonstrated complexity, is like giving someone a first-aid course and then making him a med-school professor.


[FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]But early reports are that the federal government will be offering navigators between $20 and $48 an hour. In many states, that’s far more than many private-sector workers with corresponding responsibilities earn.

[FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]Uh, does anyone but me see a potential problem with this? Overpaying people without a high school education that could have a record, to have access to all sorts of information about you... [/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]Nah, nothing could go wrong with that... [/FONT]
