Anybody that paid any attention at all knew that these brown shirts were still around, and now they may get their hands on your personal information. What could go wrong there? If history is any indicator, plenty, and Darrel Issa will have to go octagon with his own committee to investigate.
Hearings were held a few weeks ago regarding the roll out of Obamacare, and the results were disturbing to say the least. Contractors who have received hundreds of millions of dollars to set up a non-functional website played clueless. A defiant Kathleen Sebilius initimated that she really didn’t have to answer to the American people. In that hearing she admitted that the Obamcare “navigators,” those entrusted with helping people actually getting signed up for this disastrous law could be just about anybody. With no background checks, every kind of criminal, including identity thieves may be manning the phones waiting for your call. If that wasn’t bad enough, we now know who some of those criminals are.
Although ACORN was officially dismantled in 2009, they never went away. They just morphed into hundreds of other groups, the same people under a new name. One of those groups is The United Labor Unions Council Local 100. This is an organization put together by none other than Wade Rathke, founder of ACORN. They will take part in a multi-state navigator drive in an effort to allegedly get people signed up for Obamacare. I was about to say not a peep from Republicans, but that isn’t entirely accurate. There are a few Repubs sounding the alarm, and one of them is Darrell Issa.
Even as Issa looks to hold hearings into what even Sebilius admits could be a problem, he faces opposition from within the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform from none other than Elijah Cummings. As far as Cummings is concerned all Issa wants to do is gather sensitive documents and information and then leak it in such a way that would misrepresent the facts. Keep in mind that Cummings is the same guy that threw roadblocks in front of the Fast and Furious investigation, Benghazi and numerous other investigations by the committee. His only function is to seemingly thwart Issa’s efforts to get to the truth. He makes no effort to hide it either.
Since you became Chairman of the Committee in 2011, you and your staff have engaged in a reckless pattern of leaking sensitive information and documents to promote political narratives that turn out to be inaccurate after further investigation.
Between Cummings on one side and Boehner on the other it’s a wonder Issa gets anything done at all.
Issa is walking a high wire here. If he gets too bold Boehner may relieve him of his post. Not bold enough and Cummings manhandles him. He’s stuck in the middle, as are all of us. We know that ACORN is at it again with The United Labor Unions Council Local 100 alone receiving hundreds of thousands of tax dollars to come after you and twist your arm into signing up for a healthcare law you never wanted. They’ll be mining your personal information while they’re at it. The Obama regime has it all covered. The website is full of security holes and so are the navigators. Pick one or go to jail.
