I dove into my archive to show how intricate Obamacare was in basically being a voter outreach for the Democrat Party and increase people’s dependency on welfare.
Back in 2013 a report surfaced in how California spent the taxpayer money it received for its state healthcare exchange. Many groups that have no connection to healthcare received money.
Here’s some examples:
The Obama administration granted a whopping $910 million to California to set up its insurance exchange.
the $910 million is slated for bureaucracy, including rich compensation packages for exchange employees ($360,000 a year for the executive director) and contracts for computer equipment, public relations and “outreach.”
The California NAACP received $600,000 to do door-to-door canvassing and presentations at community organizations. Service Employees International Union, which says its mission is “economic justice,” received two grants totaling $2 million to make phone calls, robo-calls and go door to door.
Even though this report is from 2013, the money will not stop going to these groups. It will only intensify since premium money has been rolling in.
These enrollment “assisters” will be paid $58 for each enrollee they sign up. An additional $49 million is budgeted to pay them the first year, but in future years, assisters will be paid out of the premiums collected by the exchange.
The template is repeated in every state. The Obama health law creates a permanent stream of funding for unions and community activists by outsourcing insurance enrollment to them.
Assisters will also guide the uninsured to sign up for whatever non-health social services they may be eligible for, including welfare, food stamps and housing assistance, according to the manual prepared by the Community Health Councils for California’s implementation.
The Democrats successfully created their own voter outreach program via the taxpayer.
