Streamlined ObamaCare Application Goes On for 60 Pages

Wonderful news — our federal overlords have streamlined the process of applying for ObamaCare, making it so simple that a team of experienced accountants could complete an application in only a matter of days:

The Obama Administration quietly released a draft copy of its “single streamlined application” for Obamacare. This is the form that the government will use to certify eligibility for the program’s subsidies. The on-line version of that form requires 60 printed pages to spell out all the queries.

State paperwork to determine whether you are eligible for Medicaid comes separately, as does a form your employer has to fill out on your behalf. But getting back to your own single streamlined ObamaCare application:

Most families of four will have to answer about 1,000 discrete queries by the time [they are] done. …

Members of your household could be asked to upload proof of income, proof of citizenship, and even proof of tribal membership. Have you smoked in the last 12 months? The government wants to know.

Yet the feds couldn’t care less if you are in the country legally when it comes time to vote.

Careful with your answers. They will be scrutinized for discrepancies by at least three major federal agencies, including the sinister IRS. Mistakes will potentially result in perjury charges.

More good news — the Regime is using this massive waste of time to mitigate the stratospheric unemployment it has caused.

The Obama administration is subsidizing the hiring of thousands of guides to help people wade through the paperwork.

How will they be paid for this Sisyphean task? More money will be sucked out of the private economy, causing still more unemployment.

    Those sixty pages of questions are just the impetus the feds need to hire a bunch of well-paid union cronies to fill out the paperwork for the poor, suffering, disenfranchised patient.

    And in the face of all this, Obama returns to fundraising. Obamacare is such a huge unwieldy piece of trash that it’s falling apart in front of our very eyes.

    60 pages is very reasonable. You should see the admission forms the Eighth Circle is creating for Barry and Nancy. Not that they need validation, mind you.

    …on the positive side IT COULD BE WORSE – applicants could also be REQUIRED to listen to a speech (i.e., “teleprompter reading”) from OBOZO.

    Another liberal canard states:
    “You want sick people to die in the street” ?
    Instead they are more likely to die while filling out 60 pages of Obamacare application

  17. Flu-Bird says:

    HUNDREDS OF PAGES, THOUSANDS OF PAGES,MILLIONS and BILLIONS and TRILLIONS OF PAGES

  18. Wizard45 says:

    Laurie, et.al. Of course the application is 60 pages, they have to have “justification” for hiring the thousands of “navigators” at $20 to $48 an hour to help you fill ’em out.
