Could Obamacare Just be a Giant Democrat Voter Registration Scheme?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Obamacare may just be the biggest, boldest scheme by Democrats to register millions of new Democrat voters, analysts say.

There is one thing many Americans don’t know about Obamacare. Within the procedure of implementation of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, billions of tax dollars are being given to left-wing groups to “help” people learn how to sign up for Obamacare. But, worse, those same groups are permitted to register people to vote Democrat.

These left-wing groups–called Obamacare “navigators”–are comprised of left over remnants of the now partially defunct group ACORN, other left-wing community groups, and union operatives, Democrat hacks all.

As part of their duties of “helping” people sign up for Obamacare, these “navigators” are also authorized to register people to vote over the phone and via the Internet. We’ll give you one guess as to which party they will push people to sign up for. Yeah. Democrat.

As former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey pointed out in a recent commentary, these left-wing activists turned Obamacare “navigators” are not restricted from pressuring people to register as Democrats. She said that these so-called navigators “can say and do things that government employees can’t, such as urging people to register as Democrats.”

“There is nothing wrong with encouraging voting. But a government employee is legally barred from saying you should become a Democrat. A community organizer can say it and will. … The Obama health law transforms community organizations into a fifth estate with steady government funding but without government rules.”

A report by Diana West also notes that this new system of registering voters is also a massive data mining operation that will give Democrats and their left-wing “community organizers” cum “navigators” the intimate information of millions of Americans who they will then be able to directly target with personally crafted voting and campaign information intended to reinforce Democrat goals.

Obamacare isn’t just a socialist takeover of our healthcare system. It is much, much more.
