Are You Ready For Your Navigator?

Obama's regime announced that beginning in October, they will be hiring tens of thousands of 'Obamacare Navigators'.  These will be union workers, community activists, and healthcare workers who will assist people in filling out all the paperwork necessary to register under Obamacare.

These people will be paid in the range of $20-$48 an hour.  They will not only be on call to answer  questions via phone, but will be out going door to door offering assistance in geographic areas.  Free translators will be provided for any language other than English.  Who choses the areas to be worked, and the demographics of those areas were not discussd - but you can make a pretty educated guess that its not going to include pre-dominantly white or conservative areas.

The number of 'navigators' needed has not been disclosed, though it is known that California has asked for 21,000 just for that state alone. 

Republicans in Congress are already alarmed by the possibility these people will be used as a massive Democrat voter registration effort - since voter registration is included as a part of Obamacare, and given the description of what kind of workers will be pursued to fill the positions.

All of this is going to be paid for by our taxes.

How much - an estimate for you.  Assume a 40 hour work week.  Assume a median salary of $35 an hour.  Assume 200,000 'navigators' are hired (which is a conservative estimate, given California's request).  That's a cost of $280,000,000 PER WEEK.

None of this was ever disclosed or figured into the Obamacare budget  estimates provided by Democrats while they were trying to shove this down our throats.
