It seems to me that some people predicted news articles like this.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Applying for benefits under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul could be as daunting as doing your taxes.
The government’s draft application is now on the Internet.
It runs 15 pages for a three-person family. The online version has 21 steps, some with added questions.
At least three major federal agencies, including the IRS, will scrutinize your application.
That’s just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help.
No, that’s government inefficiency for you. 15 pages? Multiple US govmint agency scrutiny? Really? How could that be?
Some fear that consumers will be overwhelmed and give up. Administration officials say the application form is being refined.
Still, the idea that picking a health insurance plan could be as simple as shopping on the Internet is starting to look like wishful thinking.
Well if we judge the skills of most people who voted this idiOt back into office, people will give up on this ridiculous process that was once wishful thinking but is not turning into the nightmare many of us knew it would be.
