Thanks to Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner for this story: Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community organizers are being hired as "navigators" to help Americans choose Obamacare options, beginning October 1. Never mind that the health care exchange system has been delayed until 2015 because the government is having a difficult time making it work.
These "navigators," as Rush Limbaugh credibly speculates, will likely register voters at the same time they are guiding people through the 61 pages of sign-up forms. Gee, I wonder which party the navigators will recommend? Let's see now: Union members, community organizers? Must be the Democratic Party.
At this is the point. Whether it be immigration or Obamacare, Democrats have found a way to get more people to vote for them. As Limbaugh noted on his show last week, the navigators can be expected to trash Republicans and tell the low-information voters how the GOP opposed health care for them. Honesty may be the best policy, but dishonesty is a policy liberals use to win elections.
