Like the TSA, a new wave of bureaucrats will abuse their power – this time by stealing your identities.

Similar to how the Transportation Security Administration attracts pedophiles with jobs providing easy access to children, Obamacare will attract identity thieves with jobs allowing them to go door-to-door to preach the “virtues” of Obamacare while extracting private information from Americans in their own homes.

Under Obamacare, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is implementing a “Navigator” program, which provides millions of dollars to non-profit groups nationwide to hire “Navigators” who will advise Americans on their Obamacare health “options” based on the sensitive information provided.

This sensitive information includes social security numbers, income levels, employment history and home addresses, all of which are more than enough to steal Americans’ identities for complete access to their credit and financial resources.

In a Sept. 20 letter to HHS , the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce asked the department to respond to its concerns over the “rushed implementation” of its Navigator program, including plans by non-profit groups to “engage in enrollment activities that increase the likelihood of fraud or abuse, including door-to-door contacts.”

“The recipient of one of the largest Navigator grants explained in their application that they expected a substantial portion of their program to involve door-to-door contacts,” the letter stated. “Another described their work plan as involving ‘door-to-door outreach to 10,000 households per week.’”

If someone at the government level wanted to steal my identity, I wouldn't have to wait for me to unwittingly give that info to the door to door person.

Incidentally, we fill out ALL of that information on every single job application we fill out. (Have you filled one out?)


What this article seems to be cautioning about is people posing as those bureaucrats for the purpose of stealing your identity.

Door-to-Door is not a very efficient method of identity theft.

It is too labor intensive, leaves evidence behind and creates too many witnesses.

It is much easier to accomplish identity theft on line or over the phone.

For in person identity theft the best places are restaurants, gas stations, and "old folks" homes.

That and, having done less invasive door-to-door for the Census, most people will not give up that information. I was lucky to get names and birth dates and an answer to "do you live here most of the year?"

I admire the American administration having a process to monitor health, education & welfare [HEW].
In the UK we are going through a process of devolution from the UK into semi autonomous zones: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland each dependent on knowing how population changes to plan for new schools and housing. Good forward planning needs accurate data hence a compulsory census every 10 years. About the only act from which there is no exemption = universal and enforced.
This started from 1066 when this land had a new government wanting to discover what tax revenues could be expected.
This has also been a useful data base to map trends over time for historic research such as the impact of the black death plague that started in continental Europe.
But this does not involve identity theft.
Payments using credit cards, 'plastic', where misused is the greatest source of identity theft and not from filling annual tax returns [also compulsory]. So I think government is not the culprit.

It's a matter of proper screening of employees and keeping a watch on the dissemination of whatever information they are able to access. I'm at work and I'm literally sitting in front of a computer this very minute that gives me access to national (and actually in some cases international) databases where I can access things like criminal history information and social security numbers. Really, really easily. Because it's part of my job. I am entrusted with this access because I've been properly screened and my access to it is kept under surveillance.

I don't necessarily agree with Obamacare, but to complain that the government is going to have access to that kind of information? People already have that access.

And you're gonna get in some serious trouble if you don't stop that. Don't think I don't see you...
