Letter to the Editor - April 11, 2013

According to reliable media sources (gosh, are there any that aren't reliable?), the Obama administration will be hiring tens of thousands of "navigators" to help people sign up for Obamacare.

Since the rules allow for these people to come from action groups, such as Acorn and Planned Parenthood, as well as unions and health providers, we apparently should be confident they will provide unbiased advice. Does this mean we can hold them in the same degree of trust that we have in MSNBC and the New York Times for fair and balanced reporting?

Apparently, the "navigators" will be responsible for explaining and "translating" the unbelievably complicated and excessive rules and regulations contained in the 2,700 pages of the bill and its citations.

If over half of the American public is in opposition, wouldn't it be appropriate to organize a counter-contingency of "grief counselors," who would administer to the unknowing victims as they become enlightened on the true disastrous effects of the highly-mislabeled Affordable Care Act?

By definition, the term "navigator" suggests a person who conducts explorations by sea. Does it not follow that many of these Obama explorers may find themselves in over their heads?

There are some who believe that Obamacare will simply self-destruct as more details come to light. So, could these navigators actually become terminators?
