Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens (R) boasted to a crowd of Republicans that his office is creating bureaucratic hurdles to slow down and derail the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Jay Bookman reported that earlier this month, Hudgens boasted to an audience of Republicans in Floyd County, “Let me tell you what we’re doing (about Obamacare). Everything in our power to be an obstructionist.”

“We have passed a law that says that a navigator, which is a position in that exchange, has to be licensed by our Department of Insurance,” Hudgens told the audience. “The ObamaCare law says that we cannot require them to be an insurance agent, so we said fine, we’ll just require them to be a licensed navigator. So we’re going to make up the test, and basically you take the insurance agent test, you erase the name, you write ‘navigator test’ on it.”

A slip and fall on unaccountably icy steps in the middle of summer? Most accidents happen in or near the home.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Yep.

why the hell do we need a navigator or insurance company to provide healthcare to the people ?

[-] -1 points by TropicalDepression (-45) 1 year ago

Because they whored out to the insurance companies.

Yes, that and the fact the bill is over a 1000 pages. It's 1000 pages of exceptions, exclusions and loopholes for the elite. Single payer or status quo. ACA is a clusterf*k

Of course. I heard a lot about it while I was still in Georgia. The Governor, oops, I meant guv'nuh, (you in the South, boy), was blabbing on a lot about it and how it wouldn't be 'cummin' tuh jawjuh.' But that's not fair! 'Wheah ya think ya' ahh yankee? Boztin?' Insurance carriers also hand out 'riders' with their policies in Georgia. In most places it's called theft and fraud-but it's Jawjuh bowuh!
