Gee, Ya Think??

As we’ve repeatedly pointed out, the whole ObamaTax Exchange roll-out is a magnet for fraud. And the evidence for that continues to pile up:

As California prepares to launch its health care exchange, consumer groups are worried the uninsured could fall victim to fraud, identity theft or other crimes at the hands of some of the very people who are supposed to help them enroll.”

No kidding.

Here’s the problem (well, one of them, anyway): the Golden Sate is on course to”register” some 21,000 Navigators, most of whom will have no prior insurance background. But that’s not the best part: the Feds require no background checks on would-be Navigators, and the rocket surgeons in charge of Cover California (the state’s health insurance Exchange) confirm that they don’t “have a plan for investigating any complaints that might arise once the counselors start work. That means consumers who might fall prey to bogus health care products, identity theft and other abuses will have a hard time seeking justice if unscrupulous counselors get hold of their Social Security number, bank accounts, health records or other private information.”

Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

The Exchange has adopted new rules which would require fingerprinting and background checks, but how likely is it that these will actually be implemented?

Yeah, that’s what I thought, too.
