In the Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare” aka “big f-in deal,” appearing on page 5839, section D, subsection 9.4 of the paper skyscraper is the new Hippocratic Oath: “First get them to vote”:

The online application draft for health care insurance under Obamacare inquires if the applicant would like to register to vote and directs the applicant to a registration page if they answer in the affirmative.

Page 59 of the 61 page draft application, “List of Questions in the Online Application to Support Eligibility Determinations for Enrollment” developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and first reported by The Washington Examiner, asks applicants “Would you like to register to vote?” The “yes” answer linking to a blank registration form.

On Monday, House Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany of Louisiana called on Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to provide more information about the voter registration portion of the draft.

Here’s the draft section:

null

To your health!

We’ll wait and see if the “yes” link ends up going to the “non-partisan” Organizing for Action site.
