It's a little story that won't really be mentioned much....but it'd make you sit and ponder.
Jim Angle works for Fox News. Jim wanted to experience the 1-800 business with ObamaCare's call-in center. So Jim went to a unlisted phone...not a Fox News phone....and called.
The 1-800 technician eventually answered and to help Jim.....the 1-800 guy asked a few questions which would allow him to help Jim in a better way.....name, address, etc.
Well....there's a pause in the conversation at this point....while the 1-800 ObamaCare's technician is looking at the data.
Then the technician says....oh, you work for the media. Jim kinda paused at this point.
Then the technician said.....we will put you on the resolution technician listing and he'll call you up in two to five business days, and they were basically finished.
So Jim is waiting....ever so patiently for the resolution expert to call from the 1-800 center.
Jim is wondering.....without his social security number....without identifying himself.....without saying he was a reporter.....how they could possibly know that he was a news journalist from the media.
The answer? Somewhere out there.....someone has amassed a database, which is connected to every single American, their occupation, their employer, and it's working as they planned it.
This brings me back around to this odd government mandate....not the date business....but that you had to be connected to this government web site.....name, address, etc.....to get into the "system". If you weren't poor or needing the government grant business for your health care....this wouldn't really matter and it was all a wasted piece of the overall plan. Course, maybe herding everyone through this funnel and requiring them to play the database game....was the key part to start with.
This next week....some gal or guy will call Jim. Jim will ask how they knew it was media.....and resolution geek will have to find some really good and creative answer to give. If you ask me.....the gimmick just won't work if we confirm the database exists.
