Prospering under ObamaCare

by Walter Olson on June 20, 2013

Well, at least health care regulatory lawyers are prospering [Ira Stoll] And if California is any indication, the bland-sounding state-level “health insurance exchanges” are going to engineer a transfer of hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars to “outreach” efforts conducted by interest groups politically allied with the Obama administration, including the SEIU, AFL-CIO, NAACP, and various community activist groups. “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.” [Betsy McCaughey, Investors' Business Daily]

I’m not sure I trust this story — it is almost too incredible, and IBD is a sketchy source. Has anyone corroborated this???

If true, this would be a new low in corruption from California Democrats, which is really saying something.

I’m confused. So, Walter, I’m supposed to be outraged today because poor people take advantage of programs made to help them?

But, no, please, go on, tell me how the “real” problem in America these days is groups like SEIU.

You really should ask yourself whether you can trust an article with a woman who is so insecure that she allows that photo to be used as her stock byline photo while she is actually 64 years old.
