CHICAGO — Working on a tight timeframe, Illinois is building an 800-person army of temporary workers to help people sign up for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act. The “in-person counselor” jobs, located in every corner of the state, range from a $9-an-hour part-time evening job in Clinton County to a $45,000-a-year project coordinator position in Chicago for someone with experience in community organizing and public speaking.

Looks like a gig for former ACORN hustlers.
I suspect Goofy and Mickey and all the Disney gang will sign up along with the Looney Toon crew.

What I don’t understand is if this insurance is from an insurance company why wouldn’t the Insurance company have their own reps to help sign up potential policy holders.

This corrupt administration is pulling out all the stops Chicago Style to insure this Marxist law in shoved down the nations throat. Control health care and you control the masses. Its their dream. They NEED the ignorant ‘yutes’ to pay into it or it has little chance of surviving.

Hurry! Unionize those folks and demand the “dignity” of a “living wage”....say, $30 to $50 an hour plus benefits. No, I don’t see much interest in THAT idea.

Nothing about how many hours per week - 29 I’m sure ...

So, they’ll have to take the same crappy insurance they’re gonna be shovelling to the masses ...

Will the state be providing sufficient insurance coverage for those $9 an hour workers, or have they chose to just pay the Obamacare penalty? Because that would be deliciously ironic!

Still more lucrative to crank out an illegitimate child or two with random dude(s), stay at home and whine about being in a food desert.

They need to pick cotton in exchange for those food stamps. No husband to go with that baby?

Because it is NOT insurance. It's just free stuff from Obama.

Insurance is a risk-benefit company.

So why would I need a navigator if I still have to get insurance if they don’t sing me up for insurance?

Great place to snip the excerpt! makes it a fill-in-the-blank game for us.

I guess my question is, "If we don't think anything under $12/hr is adequate for a burger flipper, how in the hell can they justify paying $9/hr to someone who is expected to actually know something and be able to be trusted on what the differences in insurance policies are???"

The Chicago mob knows well how to play the game.
This is a double win, having the fedgov pay their low level troops to campaign for Democrats.

Part of the Affordable Care Act calls for having “in person assisters” to be in every state to help people understand the various insurance plan options. Also the assisters will help people enroll if they need help (reading proficiency problems, limited vision,etc.).

Bet they aren’t offering these jobs in rural America like Chandler IN, where DIL was told Medicaid rolls are closed, and she’d have to wait until next session opened. Only thing is both she who was just diagnosed with breast cancer and diabetic son need health care NOW. And their jobs offer NO INS. He works part time due to the economy and his health, she is a NA, and will not ever be able to do that job again.

Probably to ensure that they get your name and picture to ensure that you remain loyal to Obama.
