I must be really dense. How does this obstruct Obamacare?
Currently the navigators are your Acorn, Planned parenthood, United Way, community organizers with no experience in insurance at all. Many have said they will not have background checks but will be able to see private information.
If they have to be licensed insurance agents, they will have to go through the required training and likely have background checks.
Betsy -the famous guru on health care - said that Obamacare will fund community organizers for decades to come.
One other thing is that Obamacare is designed to run the insurance companies out of business.
It doesn’t. It jus slows down the implementation a bit.

If I understand the article correctly, Georgia will require potential Obamacare Exchange employees to take the same examination that a trained insurance agent would have to take . . . despite the fact the potential Exchange employees have zero training in being an insurance agent: they’ve taken no courses on the subject, read no books on it, etc.
Georgia will do three things: 1) Require potential Exchange employees to become “Navigators”; 2) Require them to take the examination for becoming a licensed insurance agent: and 3) Change the name of the examination from “Insurance Agent Examination” to “Navigator Examination.” It’s Georgia’s examination; they can call it anything they want.
It’s also based on some demographic savvy as to who the potential Exchange employees are likely to be: probably ACORN types, community organizers, et al. What are the odds that such people will muster the self-discipline and ambition to take the same educational route that someone wanting to be an actual insurance agent would take, especially for the sake of passing what is probably a long, tough, boring licensing examination? Shall we say “slim”?
It’s a clever idea. I very much hope it works.
I am guessing obamacare supporters can’t pass the test?
“I must be really dense. How does this obstruct Obamacare?”
Its like mister Scott from Star trek said,”The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.”
Obamacare is one hell of a complex and convoluted plan that not even Obama can figure out. Insolently it probably has thousands of “critical points” that our state merely has to disable to bring the whole thing down.
