“Obamacare has been wonderful for America.” – Harry Reid, yesterday
*****

Saying “Obamacare has been wonderful for America” at this point is like telling your family “this has been the most relaxing trip ever” as you’re backing out of the driveway to leave for vacation in San Pedro Sula.

Starting in October, California will begin convincing an estimated five million-plus people to sign on the line which is dotted and enroll in Obamacare through a new health care exchange manned at least in part by hastily trained, poorly monitored “counselors” hired after inadequate background checks. What could possibly go wrong?

Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones also said the exchange does not 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, he said.

“We can have a real disaster on our hands,” Jones, a Democrat, said in an interview.

His department regulates more than 300,000 insurance agents and brokers statewide.

Inadequately monitored and trained counselors combined with consumer eligibility verification on the honor system is destined to be “wonderful for America,” according to Harry Reid. The senator must have a stake in a business that cleans up train wrecks.
