Obamacare Paper Enrollment a Placebo for Stuck Applicants
Newly-released internal Obamacare "War Room" documents reveal that the Obama Administration's push for citizens to submit paper applications was a misleading tactic designed to "allow people to feel like they are moving forward."
The documents, turned over to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, paint a picture of an Administration intentionally misleading health insurance consumers as a dilatory tactic designed to keep citizens from giving up hope.
"Navigators are seeing people very frustrated and walking away, so they are turning to paper applications to protect their reputations as people in the communities who can help, even though paper applications will not have a quicker result necessarily," said notes from an Oct. 15 meeting.
October 11 meeting notes make it clear that the paper application ploy was an attempt to string along beleaguered citizens frustrated with the government's busted website.
"The paper applications allow people to feel like they are moving forward in the process and provides another option; at the end of the day, we are all stuck in the same queue," state the Obama Administration notes.
The Obamacare website recently replaced its front screen with a graphic touting the paper application as one of four enrollment methods.
News of the paper application ruse comes as the Associated Press is now reporting that 3.5 million Americans have seen their health insurance policies canceled due to Obamacare.
"If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan," the President said numerous times.
Obamacare will cost American taxpayers $2.6 trillion over the next 10 years.
