Spanish-Language Version Of Healthcare Website Not Ready For Enrollment
CBS local affiliate ^ | October 25, 2013 | Matt Rivers

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — An indefinite delay of the Spanish language version of the Affordable Care Act website threatens the viability of the program as a whole, according to area experts.

CuidadoSalud.gov was supposed to roll out this month, but although the website exists, the option to enroll electronically doesn’t.

That option does exist on Healthcare.gov, although the system has been plagues with problems.

“My job only is part time so I can’t afford health insurance,” said Carmen Rosa.

Rosa, who can only speak Spanish, said she would have applied online if she could, but said she was frustrated that option doesn’t exist yet.

So I guess Darrel Issa’s bill to “bring the illegals “out of the shadows” will not help the effort to entrench ObamaCare into out political landscape...

I mean hey, if people can’t remember that this WHOLE thing about ObamaCare is that it is a TAX, and its secondary function, more like its cover is to provide “healthcare” in the conventional sense...

We will get nowhere, anytime soon...

Everyone I hear seems to still be skull-blocked on ObamaCare to provide heathcare services for the peeps...Far from it...they are scrambling to try and fix the revenue generating portion, get everyone signed up on that website, and for what???

Give this thing, as much as I would have liked to see this abomonation burn in the pits of hell, another two years, tops...And it will fail...

What we need to setup right now with this next election are people that will not be duped into trying to fix this damn thing when it does...

If I can remain healthy for that period of time, I will gladly pay the “fine”, and possibly the next years “fine” for not signing up for this “TAX” they’ve forced upon us...

By then, if we have much of a healthcare insurance industry left, we might be able to return to normal before the wheels fall off...

But then again, that may not be allowed to happen, since the political attention span of your average voter is about that of a gnat...

And their opposition to return things to “normal” will be easier for them, than it was for the movement to defund ObamaCare before it got off the ground...

I rememeber a line in “Smokey and the Bandit”...

“You gotta stop thinkin’ so negatively about this sonnnn!!!”

“It’s only 900 miles there, and 900 miles back!!!”

When it crashes, people whjo had their insurance policies cancelled because of obamacare will have to shop for insurance again. They will have to do so with one or more of the following preconditions:

They are healthy
They are healthy but require medication.
They are elderly
They are pregnant
They have substance abuse problems.
They are ill.

A physical examination may be required.

So, I’m guessing ‘Carmen Rosa’ is an illegal. If she were legal, how did she pass the English test for citizenship?

Frankly, I don’t care if she gets her healthcare or not if she can’t even bother to learn the language.

Yeah, what about the 10,000 languages other than English. I heard NO mention of offering this in Ebonics. What a travesty!

Rosa should sign up for health insurance in her native country, in her native language. Problem solved.

Click here if you want an ObamaPhone...

Click here if you want Obama to pay your bills...

Click here if you want the government/Obama to rule this country forever...

I guarantee you it doesn’t take a foreign language to get clicks like these to register on a website...

Anyone who has been in this country long enough to qualify for Obamacare should not need a Spanish version of this turd.

Why should we subsidize people who cannot speak English. English should be the only language for any official document in this country.

I can’t afford health insurance,” said Carmen Rosa.

OK. But read on:

Rosa, who can only speak Spanish, said she would have applied online if she could, but said she was frustrated that option doesn’t exist yet.

So if she can't afford it but would've signed up online for it, that means she expects it to be FREE to her!

They are waiting on the Amnesty for illegals. THEN they can enroll THEM on our nickel. That’s the ticket, enroll in healthcare for “free” and register them to vote— dem. Simple.

Since English is not the official language of the United States, there is no English requirement

I know that this is counter-intuitive.

Then add on the extra costs hospitals will encounter on every level of care with spanish to english translators @ all the hospitals across, America. This right should really jack up hospital rates.Obamacare is just the starting point.
