H & R Barack: Obamacare navigators shown offering helpful tax advice

James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are back with a new video showing another part of what the Affordable Care Act hath wrought.

Here’s part of what the latest video shows, via NRO:

“You lie because your premiums will be higher,” one navigator advises an investigator for O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, who tells the worker he sometimes smokes. “Don’t tell them that. Don’t tell ’em.”

The investigator then poses as a low-income worker at a university who has unreported cash income on the side, worrying about how that might affect his premium subsidies. That’s no problem for a navigator, who says, “Don’t get yourself in trouble by declaring it now.”

“Yeah, it didn’t happen,” another navigator says. One more chimes in: “Never report it.”

Records show that the National Urban League was paid $376,000 by the federal government for its Obamacare outreach in Texas.

Video from Project Veritas via Twitchy:

O’Keefe says he’s got many more of these kinds of videos and will release them over time. The bottom line is that it looks as if the federal government is giving grants to some groups who are then advising people to cheat on their taxes. Actually, “navigators” aren’t even necessary for that, because the law itself encourages the practice because the less income you can show, the more benefits you receive.

Naturally, libs are blowing these vids off as “isolated incidents” and saying O’Keefe probably “selectively edited” the videos, but anybody with an IQ over room temperature in a poorly heated house knows that the Affordable Care Act is in engraved invitation for fraud.

The true purpose of Obamacare isn’t to provide people with access to insurance but rather to get OFA and ACORN-style tentacles even deeper into the system under the guise of health coverage. Frankly what will shock me most is if somebody can show a video of a navigator that encourages applicants to be 100 percent honest.
