    Re: Obamacare Operator Fired After Taking Call From Hannity; Hannity To Give Her A Ye

    It's pretty obvious that she was fired for talking to the media about her job and was bad-mouthing her employer. I don't really see how anyone could look at it any other way without revealing themselves to be ignorant partisans.

    edit: and I listened to the call btw. I knew she was going to be fired as soon as Hannity mentioned that he was calling.

    For those who don't know, every call center I've ever been to or had friends work at mentioned that there's no talking to the media or allowing for the recording of phone calls. This woman was denser than a brick if she thinks that it was appropriate to talk to the media.

This lady should have known that. Hannity giving her charity is nothing more than trying to make up for being the asshole who egged her into getting fired. All so he could get media ratings and a paycheck from sponsors.
    I think you made an excellent point. Hannity got the woman fired and felt guilty enough to spend over 2/3 of the interview trying to make it up to her by giving her money and trying to find her a new job.




    Single mom with two kids making 26K a year for a full time job puts her barely above the poverty line. Well, at least now she can get health insurance with or without a job.

    Not her opinion. She stated anecdotal evidence based on her experience.

    Next stop, reeducation camps.

    Obama should put all his rules into an easily searchable and easy to understand format. Perhaps a little red book with all the answers would work....
    Not to over state it or anything right?

    Ms. Davis did not work for a non-profit organization. She worked for a contractor that the government hired and we the taxpayers pay the bill. ....

    Hannity asked Ms. Davis if she received training for her position. Ms. Davis responded "yes". Then he asked if during this training was she instructed not to talk to anyone from the media and the answer was "no". Hannity refused to give out the name of the government contractor. I would have liked to known that bit of information.

    Spare me your fluffing of Hannity's qualities. By the end of the week, she'll still be without a job, and he'll find someone else to get his ratings from.
    When asked during her training as a hot-line operator was she told not to take calls from the media? Her answer was "No". Look I know this whole rollout for the big awaited Obamacare is an embarrassment for the left. After all, the left is always telling us they are the smartest pencils in the box and know what's best for all of us. After all didn't Obama promise top IT czars to ensure that taxpayers got the most effective, innovative, cutting-edge and secure technology for their money?

    This mess isn't the fault of Ms. Davis but incompetence from the top down to the government contractors hired.

    When you are hired in to a company large or small typically everyone is given a copy of the company rules to review and sign stating they have read and understand the rules. I guess this Obammy sweat shop does not. I am shocked it is not a union shop. I'm sure Obammy will step in here and get her back on the job.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    But, this isn't a private company.

    McCarthy was a great American, who helped stop the communist infiltration of America.
