Barely Functional Obamacare Websites Solicit Voter Registration

Let’s start off by noting that this is required by law under the 1993 voter registration law, as all government agencies that provide public assistance must ask. Yet, is it really necessary to ask even before someone finds out how much they are going to be nailed for health insurance? Before they can even start their application?

(Fox News) The federal website that enrolls Americans in ObamaCare also asks applicants if they want to register to vote, raising questions about why the Obama administration would further complicate an already crash-prone website.

“The [website] launch has not gone well,” Nick Novak, a spokesman for the John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy, which noticed the voter-registration question on the Wisconsin site, told FoxNews.com on Monday. “Why are they cluttering up the site?”

Novak, who has unsuccessfully tried numerous times over the past week to click through the site, also argues officials should have at least posed the question after customers sign up for insurance.

Of course, they don’t want to wait till after one has registered and even submitted a successful application (which is rare) to ask. People would be so tired and upset after the whole experience they might not bother to register to vote. And

“The president should be careful what he wishes for,” he said. “While he counted on young people to win the presidency, many are now experiencing ObamaCare sticker shock.”

Na. Most are either staying on their parents plan or simply not bothering to register.

    I’m betting many still have not heard. Then you get those that are just now turning 18, and might not be claimed as a dependent any longer? Now there’s sticker shock when they file their IRS for first time and are REQUIRED to pay a fine, which takes most of their refund away.

    But, am sure everyone will blame repubs for that too. And repubs will say.. “well, no, but, I.. I, I mean, we.. I, we, … we meant to … but .. wait. no.. wait, I want to tell you about *******”
