Don't say we didn't warn you!
It's bad enough the application form for ObamaCare runs over 60 pages. That will make a visit to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles seem like a vacation by comparison. But what's worse, is that hidden among the bureaucratic nightmare is a question asking whether applicants would like to register to vote.
This raises a whole host of questions. First, there is no legal authority under ObamaCare to register voters. But what's worse, who gets to see the information provided by applicants? Do the so-called "Navigators" or private groups who have allied themselves with ObamaCare also get to use this information for partisan politics? Will applicants be pressured by left wing groups into registering to vote and perhaps even allowing unlawful vote fraud by giving access to their ballot? It's all happened before.
Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., (R-LA) chair of the House Ways and Means Oversight subcommittee points out that the "Paperwork Reduction Act requires that federal agencies seek only information needed to do their job." Surely voter registration is not relevant. What a shame the Paperwork Reduction Act" isn't enforced when it comes to liberal programs like ObamaCare. Rep. Boustany's is investigating. Good luck with that. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius has been rather imperious in defying ANY congressional oversight. Hopefully, this will be that one step too far!
