Hey look, somebody’s finally been held accountable

The advice being offered by those “navigators” in James O’Keefe’s latest video was a symptom of a law that incentivizes such behavior to say the least (and many more won’t need a “navigator” to know that the less income they show the greater their subsidized benefit).

This is how it will probably go moving forward — the symptoms will be dealt with as they become public, while the disease and those who created it go on their merry way:

Last night, the Urban League fired one employee and suspended three others. It said in a statement it ”does not condone, nor would we ever sanction, misleading the public or any individual who seeks our assistance about any issue, and particularly in this case, an issue as critical as health care.”

At the same time it claimed the video was misleading because “the full context of these comments is not reflected in the video.”

I’m told the full video will be made available by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, but that the problems with the navigators may be just beginning. Apparently, O’Keefe plans to follow his ACORN model and release other videos showing navigator abuses in other cities thus demonstrating that problems with the $67 million federal program are far from isolated.

These fired and suspended people should have instead taken part in writing, voting to pass it to find out what’s in it, or signing the ACA into law. If only they’d have promised millions of Americans they’d be able to keep their insurance while knowing they couldn’t, designed a wildly expensive website that doesn’t work and demonstrated general incompetence at the federal level, they’d still be getting paychecks.
