Skip to comments.Using ObamaCare To Create A Permanent Democratic Majority

If you have to keep it a secret, you probably shouldn't be doing it.
But the California legislature and the new Covered California health insurance exchange are conspiring to keep secret how they will dole out more than half a billion dollars in taxpayer dollars to contractors. The lion's share of the money is going for what the exchange budget terms "outreach."
In truth, the money is going to build Democratic Party enrollment.
The Obama administration granted a whopping $910 million to California to set up its insurance exchange. That money is not for bandages, surgery, nurses and doctors to care for the sick. Nor is it for insurance plans, though $910 million could buy generous coverage for at least 113,000 people!
Shockingly, the $910 million is slated for bureaucracy, including rich compensation packages for exchange employees ($360,000 a year for the executive director) and contracts for computer equipment, public relations and "outreach."
Outreach is the largest expenditure and where the real monkey business occurs.
Amazingly, CALIFORNIA LEGISLATORS PASSED A LAW that the exchange could KEEP SECRET FOR A YEAR WHO RECEIVED THE CONTRACTS and INDEFINITELY how much THEY WERE PAID.
California's open-records laws would otherwise prohibit such secrecy.

California to let exchange keep vendor contracts private
Spending a billion dollars to enroll Democrats in California seems like a waste of money. The last amnesty program assured California’s Democrat dominance forever.
It's another proof that Obamacare was not really about health care but about gaining control of Americans and making the Democrat party the ruling political party in America for the foreseeable future, making taxpayers fund it.
if the IRS cannot handle tax refunds properly like the 23,000 refunds sent to one address in Atlanta. Then how can they manage Obama care.
It's all about re-distribution of assets from the Have's, to the Have-Not's (except for those in Charge/Power).
Another great reason to live in Kansas. Keeping this stuff secret won’t happen, especially now that Obama’s favorite bunch of Kansas thugs, the Sunflower Community Asses, have blown their cover by broadcasting their juvenile antics on Kris Kobach’s porch.
Maybe the term "skimming" would be appropriate here.
I doubt a single illegal received a penny of the take.
And i'll bet that money made its way to the DNC (and probably the RNC, as well).
Why was it written last July 2012. But not released until last week. Why?
What is Congress doing about this?
Don't look to Congress.
That might well backfire on them.
Permanent democratic majority ??? Permanent Republican majority ??? Whatever ... we can all be certain of one tragic truth .... we have the best government money can buy.
Because there was a Presidential election coming up.
