Does anyone really believe the Obama Administration would do anything immoral, unethical, underhanded or below the belt?

This article started out like this "Arrogance that might be termed incredible" And Id say the person that wrote this editorial would know a lot about. Wouldn't you?

So these navigators, who will speak to as many people as they can , are taking notes on who chooses one carrier over another. They will not know who they are talking to.What secret information are they privy too? Only when you are actually buying insurance does any meaningful information be disclosed. And that will be between your carrier and you. Editor, nice try, but the sky is still up there.

This is a poorly written editorial. The quality of the editorial staff seems to be lacking. The editorial hardly makes sense other than the author is against ObamaCare and the public should be kept ignorant of the benefits that they might enjoy from ObamaCare. It seems strange that on one hand the Obama administration is being accused of keeping the public in the dark, while at the same time accusing the Obama administration with misleading the public about the benefits of ObamaCare...all without any facts or evidence to support the accusation. Surely the Sentinel can do better.

Have a question? Look it up on the internet. Most folks have a computer and there is plenty of information and calculators out there to help everyone. And the first step is TURN OFF FOX Tea Party Network.

"Have a question? Look it up on the internet."

The problem with that is this bill was rushed through and is so intensive that even those who wrote the law don't know what all it says.

Hindsight tells us it's a pathetic law, so bad that even rational, level headed Democrats are finding fault with the bill.

The simple truth is, the bill needs to be addressed, on item by item issues but that would require leadership from the administration.

Sadly, there is none. Were there, this atrocity wouldn't have passed in the first place.

As someone who has been looking to purchase insurance - so I can COMPLY, I will tell you I have had companies trying to sell me insurance that won't even work in WV. So . . . I called the WV insurance commissioner's office. I asked for a list of major medical providers for individuals in WV - they sent me 10 co. names. The first one I called said - we don't have individual policies in WV. So tell me now I can get a straight answer from any government agency. It just opens the door for scammers. Thanks Obama, thanks. Not only am I forced to comply just let us all sort through the scammers on our own. What a mess.

BK says "I called the WV insurance commissioner's office. I asked for a list of major medical providers for individuals in WV - they sent me 10 co. names."

One would think they would use information provided by a group that received tax payer money to aid citizens in navigating the largest tax increase in American History yet they must not have because they gave a citizen names of companies that do not provide the coverage the agency stated they did.

Is anyone really surprised with incompetency given the incompetence of the current administration?
