California Obamacare Director Peter Lee said he plans to provide the “human touch” during the next open enrollment period by targeting low-income and minority communities as well as prisoners who have recently been released from incarceration, reports California Healthline.
As Breitbart News reported earlier this month, several cash-strapped states are looking to dump health care costs onto the federal government by signing up prisoners for Obamacare.
Lee says enrollment efforts are “only just beginning” and that Covered California plans to tap 250 grassroots organizations to sign more people up on the highly unpopular Obamacare program.
The latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that over one in three (36%) uninsured individuals said they “tried to get coverage but it was too expensive.” Worse for the Obama administration, after four years of being the law of the land, Obamacare’s approval rating stands at just 38% nationally.
The unpopular Obamacare program has also dragged down President Barack Obama’s approval ratings to all-time lows. The new Washington Post/ABC News poll puts Obama’s approval rating at just 41%.
