Crash-prone ObamaCare site also includes voter registration option
Published October 14, 2013
FoxNews.com



The federal website that enrolls Americans in ObamaCare also asks applicants if they want to register to vote, raising questions about why the Obama administration would further complicate an already crash-prone website.

Thirty six states are using the federal site – also called exchanges or market places -- to enroll customers in government-mandated health insurance.

At least four other states -- California, Connecticut, New York, Vermont and Wisconsin -- also are asking or intend to ask customers if they want to register to vote.

“The [website] launch has not gone well,” Nick Novak, a spokesman for the John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy, which noticed the voter-registration question on the Wisconsin site, told FoxNews.com on Monday. “Why are they cluttering up the site?”

Novak, who has unsuccessfully tried numerous times over the past week to click through the site, also argues officials should have at least posed the question after customers sign up for insurance.

However, government officials have defended putting the question on the exchanges, citing federal law.

Brian Cook, a spokesman for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in August the exchanges must include the question, under the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. The law requires states to offer voter registration at government offices that provide public assistance.

Brett Healy, president of the Wisconsin-based MacIver Institute, suggests that including the question could backfire on Democrats.

"The president should be careful what he wishes for,” he said. "While he counted on young people to win the presidency, many are now experiencing ObamaCare sticker shock."

I always suspected that the vast majority of people who apply for Obamacare will be cross-checked against other voter registration rolls....and if they are not on any of them...presto....you've just become a dedicated loyal Democrat voter.   Whether you want to or not.

Only if he had total control of it.  Sort of like Obama wants to do. 13859

All they need is the names. Look at reports coming out of New Jersy today. People showing up to vote are being told "you already voted by mail"..........

You know someone with bucks is paying for the mail scam.  Obama voters aren't likely to pay the postage and have to give up dope, cigarettes, or booze. :pondering:

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

I think control over the internet is a goal of every government on Earth. When everyday people have access to information and can learn things faster than their government can lie about them, that is a problem.

True, true!  The other end of that is people being too uneducated and stupid to use it, a campaign progressives have been working on for a hundred years. 888sunglass
