    Fraud firm gets OK to sign people up for ObamaCare

    Rampant fraud on a New York City contract last year didnít stop a major nonprofit from landing a slew of federal contracts to sign people up for ObamaCare.

    Seedco, a New York-based community-development organization, was sued by the federal government for faking at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with the city.

    Eighteen months later, the feds and Seedco are teaming up again, this time to help medical-insurance seekers maneuver through the maze that is the Affordable Health Care Act.

    did I read this right a Seedco, a New York-based community-development organization sued by the federal government for fraud has been hired by the federal government to handle you personal information. I don't see anything going wrong here

    Presumably they must meet HIPAA requirements for data security.

    like the Obama care navigators with only 20 hours of training and no background checks don't even have to be a high school graduate

    It is a little bit funny.

    I find it quite humorous that the GOP is demanding background checks for Obamacare navigators, but is also complaing that background checks for those who want to buy an AR-15 would be an affront to their freedom. Just sayin'.

    Exactly! Once the cat is out of the bag, then there will be an apology that it happened, and assurances that problems will be fixed, but in the end when your identity is stolen because of it, it won't matter, your Obamacare premium will still be due.
