Liberal politicians overwhelmingly support and agree that the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is something desperately needed for America's estimated 47 million uninsured citizens.

To participate in this program, most of these uninsured must gather their personal data, log on to HealthCare.gov and input their data. If problems (a real possibility) occur, they must locate an ObamaCare “navigator,” explain the problems, provide personal data to the navigator, re-input the data, secure government insurance data, analyze insurance options, consider costs, determine eligibility for subsidy, make a decision and purchase insurance.

These same liberal politicians, however, vehemently oppose and consider it a severe hardship for many of these very same people to locate their birth records and travel to a convenient location to get their pictures taken for free photo ID cards. Perhaps a few thousand photo ID “navigators” would solve this dilemma.
