How much is the outreach worker being paid?

So we are spending $150M to sign up people for a program that wastes more money. Fabulous use of taxpayer money. That's about as good as advertising for Food assistance and WIC on billboards. Just in case you are so lazy you can't be bothered to get off your couch to collect your handouts, we'll come to you.

It's hard to put lipstick on a pig...this Obamacare law is a disgrace to the cause of healthcare...it needs to be repealed and replaced with positive market driven approaches that reduce cost and give incentives to personal responsibilty in health care. The government is doing nothing more than destroying the finest health care system in the world by reducing it to some kind of of half-baked government run system. Shame on Obama and his minions...shame...shame...shame.

I'm amazed at the lack of knowledge most Americans seem to have.

According to the NY times link, 79% of the public and 87% of the uninsured don't know anything about the insurance exchanges, which are a major feature of the ACA.

That's outrageous - information about these exchanges has been available for quite some time now.
