Maryland Exchange Informs Man He is Not a Citizen (though his ancestors arrived on the Mayflower)

by John Sexton 30 Oct 2013, 12:45 PM PDT

Brian Shaffer lives in Maryland. He is one of hundreds of thousands who has lost insurance because of the Affordable Care Act. But when Shaffer tried to buy replacement insurance on the Maryland exchange he got a surprise, one which he described as "sheer stupidity."

"I went to the Maryland Exchange, filled out the application, and at the end it told me I wasn't eligible because I was not a U.S. citizen" Shaffer told WJLA-TV.

Shaffer says he sent in his drivers license and birth certificate to the exchange by fax not once but twice. And still he has not been approved to buy insurance.

Amusingly, Shaffer has studied his own ancestry and knows that some of his relatives arrived in the New World on the Mayflower. His family has lived in America for 13 generations.

It's sounding more like the government borrowed the hard drive off someone else's computer.  :silly:

Had his surname been Gomez and the exchange deemed him "not a citizen," it wouldn't have been a problem, though ...
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
