GOP Ramps Up Smear Campaign Against Obamacare Navigators

Senators Rubio, McConnell and Ayotte - enemies of the Affordable Care Act
This is one of the lowest high-level sabotage campaigns we've seen.  The social service organizations who do the work necessary to help people buy insurance under Obamacare are not being supported, but rather slandered as people who could be stealing your credit card and other private information.  A responsible legislator would suggest a fix if there were a problem - not attack the program in order to kill the expansion of health insurance coverage.  Instead we have an insinuation campaign, rather like the Voter ID bills - pass laws against a non-existent danger to prevent people from realizing their rights. - gwc
GOP Ramps Up Smear Campaign Against Obamacare Navigators:
Beware anybody trying to help people sign up for health insurance under Obamacare.
That's the line from top Senate Republicans, who have magnified their smear campaign against the law's so-called navigators, groups that have received federal money to assist people in enrolling for coverage. Their latest shot: darkly warning that Americans could put their personal and financial safety at risk if they seek out assistance.
Republicans have a longstanding animosity toward the navigators -- state officials in a number of red states have put up roadblocks for them -- but the comments of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are a new extreme in the party's assault on those tasked with helping Americans navigate the health reform law.
