We are getting closer and closer to the sign up date for "Obamacare."

A lot of it is not ready and the entire thing has turned into a big mess with unanswered questions.

We passed it and Nancy Pelosi still cannot tell what's in it.

One thing that is in it right now, is the lack of privacy.

I have no doubt you've already heard about this.

The Feds are paying good money to hire "navigators" to help those who cannot figure out all the "ins and outs" and paperwork.

You don't necessarily have to have a talent, but believe in the president and do what he wants you to do.

Another good thing about getting a job like this, it seems if you are a believer and can fog a mirror you're in.

These federal navigators don't have to be screened.

That's right.

One of the most private things a person has is their health care records and if I work with you, I don't need to know your medical facts or diseases you have.

But these "navigators," who are dealing with your most private information, will not have to be screened by the federal government, while people rummaging through your bags at the airport at least have training and screening.

Right now, there is no guarantee of privacy from these folks, or the things they or you enter into a computer. There is no guarantee of privacy with any of that yet.

Right now, the mantra is just get it going, although we don't know where the train is heading.

This is all a big mistake.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

No one cares about privacy when the discussion is about reproductive freedom.

We are concerned about the level of hate deaf smith is posting on this site and other ketk issue sites...given that this person is undoubtedly able to arm himself to the teeth and shoot anyone who gets in his way, one wonders if the Tyler police are aware of the level of hatred this man harbors and, if not, if they should be made aware of him. Mr. Smith, you have crossed a boundary of paranoia, militancy (at least in your posts), and dangerous rhetoric...maybe ketk should alert the police?

Oh, shut up, smith...you think anyone else reads your warped opinions except less than a handful of like-minded radicals (and one or two of us who post because your opinions are so vile)? The Affordable Health Care Act is already making a positive impact on citizens...take, for example, young people who can now stay of their parent's insurance until age 26, until they establish themselves in work and paying for their own insurance. You peddle junk, not facts, and certainly hate more than most.

Most of the legislation passed hasn't been read before it's passed. The navigators will probably be working under an arrangement similar to Eric Snowdens contract. They'll be trained in the laws regarding personally identifiable information.
Texas has had five years to come up with some kind of alternative to the Affordable Care Act. Texas tax payers have been paying for indigent health care every time they go to the doctor or hospital. The cost is added on to your bill.

Pelosi never knew what was in it.

2014 mid-terms are coming! Ditch Obamacare NOW Democrats before your job goes bye bye.
