Obamacare 'Navigators' To Oversee Implementation in Resistant States

They want us to believe resistance is futile

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In those states where there is a significant level of hostility toward ObamaCare, trained "navigators" will be on the ground to ensure the program is successfully implemented,  senior administration officials said Thursday during a conference call.

With the open enrollment period for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, set to begin on Oct.1 and through March 2014, White House officials made it clear in their remarks that the partnerships set up in California to promote the federal health care program could serve as model for the rest of the country.

President Obama is scheduled to speak Friday in San Jose, Calif., where he will discuss the implementation process and the importance of community outreach efforts. Spanish language media outlets including Univision, Telemundo, ImpreMedia and the California Endowment, a statewide health care foundation, have been recruited to take part in this effort, according to administration officials.
