Democrats always said that ObamaCare would create a lot of jobs and while currently it's hard at work destroying jobs, especially at the working class level, like most medical centralization boondoggles, ObamaCare will create a lot of jobs in the field of explaining what it is and how to survive it.
Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as "navigators" to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 could earn $20 an hour or more, according to new regulations issued Wednesday.
It is still not clear how many navigators will be required. California, however, provides a hint. It wants 21,000.
That could be an expensive proposition. The proposed rules, now open for public comment, suggest an estimated pay of $20-$48 an hour.
Who says Obama doesn't create jobs? If California is the national standard, then we've got a good 180,000 jobs here at 20 to 48 bucks an hour. Sure they're government jobs and come at the expense of working people... but think of all the private sector jobs that will also be created as new medical coders will be required and new accountants will be needed to help people escape all the new taxes for all the navigators guiding the ObamaCare Titanic into the financial iceberg.
The rules allow navigators to come from the ranks of unions, health providers and community action groups such as ACORN and Planned Parenthood. They are required to provide unbiased advice.
They're also required to teach you how to vote three times. And if you don't speak English, No Temas, translators are standing by.
"The proposed requirements would also include that such entities and individuals provide consumers with information and assistance in the consumer's preferred language, at no cost to the consumer, which would include oral interpretation of non-English languages and the translation of written documents in non-English languages when necessary to ensure meaningful access," said the regulations.
ObamaCare is bad enough in English. I can only begin to imagine its sheer incomprehensibility when it's translated into Spanish, Arabic, Swahili and Haitian Creole.
But at least with all the navigators and translators and astrogators, we'll have lots more jobs for Obama's campaign supporters funded by the people who actually work for a living.
