    This is the same James O`Keefe who lied about Acorn. This guy is not a reliable source.

    @mesovortex, sadly, what constitutes a "reliable" source these days anyway? The left has there version of reality and the right there version. I try to look for the truth somewhere in the middle so I`d say this has some kernel of truth. But honestly, I tire of the whole Fox News this and MSNBC that... ... seems like a giant waste to me.

    The difference is that Fox News will report this as true and MSNBC will debunk it later the same day.

    Even MSNBC isn`t cheering so loudly about obomba-care. It`s a horrendous disaster. Any politician defending it will lose their next election.

    But on the bright side, we have given a smile to the entire world as we screw up healthcare even more. In a world where every other civilized nation has managed to do it we can`t. That`s worth a chuckle for europe.

    Wait, the guy comes in and tells the woman that he`s been defrauding the IRS for years, and asks her if he needs to come clean in order to get Healthcare, and she says that if he comes clean he will probably get in trouble and might get arrested. I guess that means she IS encouraging him to lie, but is that really an Obamacare issue or an issue with this particular employee?

    Sounds like an issue with a particular employee or employees from Texas to me. The problem is that it`s not "newsworthy" in and of itself so they present it as if ALL the navigators nationwide are doing it to add fuel to the fire.

    A lot of these so called "navigators" are the same people that worked at ACORN, before they renamed themselves after their scandals.

    mesovortex: James O`Keefe didn`t lie about ACORN or Planned Parenthood. Video doesn`t lie and he`s released full videos of all his investigations. You just can`t stand it when liberals get caught coaching people how to lie and get free services.

    Of course every lie, if found by the insurance company, is a valid reason to cancel your insurance should you ever actually need it...

    @mesovortex: O`Keefe didn`t "lie" about anything! You got some proof that doesn`t come from an uber-liberal opinion blog?

    @lauriloo: I await your LINK to MSNBC`s "debunking" this... it`s been in the news for a while now... take your time... any minute now, it will get "debunked" I SO sure...

    @bliznik: It is indeed a problem with this particular employee. BUT as mentioned? The contract for this service was given to Obama supporting ACORN alumni... THAT is a problem too!

    It`s just another example of how POORLY RUN the website is. $500,000,000+ poorly spent.

    But don`t worry! The ACA will work FLAWLESSLY! Period! Obama said so!

    @CrakrJak and 5Cats

    Gotta nitpick here. James O`Keefe didn`t lie, but in some videos he inadvertently managed to trick some of the subjects of them into thinking they were part of a low-brow prank. There were plenty of other things wrong with ACORN, they would eventually have to restructure.

    Why does he mostly record the dark skinned ones making the egregious comments?
    I know that the us government was one of the first to integrate blacks into the workforce with government employment, but still only about 20% of the blacks work in government making up only 15% of government employees.
    My conclusion is that O`Keefe loves to bait the race card making him a non-reliable source that is playing old stereotypes and half-truths(just call em lies really) building a wedge between Americans.

    @Cajun247: Eh? News to me! Did HE say that or did the people on camera come up with that excuse later?

    ...but still only about 20% of the blacks work in government making up only 15% of government employees.
    @llaa: Which is it? 20% or 15%?
    Do 20% of "all Black people" work for the (State, Fed or other) US Government? THAT would be amazing!
    Don`t Blacks make up 13.6% of the US population? (says Wiki) That would mean at 15% they`re OVER represented in Government, eh?

    Not saying that`s BAD! Let me be clear about that!

    Anyhow: why does the skin colour of the people involved matter?

    Have you considered that it`s possibly he is just showing the ones making the egregious comments?

    @5Cats - 3 out of 20 (=15%) government workers are African Americans and one out of five blacks (=20%) hold government jobs. If they over represent its by a small margin a little over 1%.

    The other point is the supposed "fraud" is not grand larceny. The veritas operative states that he has no w2 forms at all but is employed as a janitor making $15k/year and a side job (no amount is mentioned in the recording). The worker advises the operative not to state their undeclared income onto their ACA application if they havent declared their other income, since their premiums will be more expensive, by how much I have no idea. If the man is making $15k a year means that he wouldnt have a premium under medicare? We don`t know what type of plan he was receiving help signing up for...
    At 1:20, it looks like there is a new sheriff in town and he`s short white queef and surrounded by cowgirls?! What the hell is this video trying to say other than black people reverse

    The latter. Look dude I`m not saying ACORN was a well run ship (in fact it was quite the opposite), but the charges of embezzlement were mostly bogus.

    @Cajun247: Interesting! That might explain one of the videos, but there were a LOT of them.

    ACORN was just another "slush fund" pool for crooked politicians to launder crooked money. Both US parties use them to avoid the law(s).

    Nothing new, except that ACORN got caught!

    Also interesting is that it`s still dragging through the courts. Lawyers and other parasites, eh?

    @5Cats

    True enough, but ACORN did start out as a legitimate charity and community outreach organization as opposed to a slush fund. Of course things change when tax money come into play.
