Covered California to register voters

Covered California to register voters

voting electronic machine wikipediaCovered California, the state’s implementation of Obamacare, now will be mailing voter registration cards to enrollees. Given that most of these folks are poor, and poor people tend to vote Democratic, this is a big boon for the Democratic Party that already dominates state politics.

Reported the Chronicle:

“Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, began the mailings last week and agreed to add voter-registration material to its online, telephone and in-person enrollment procedures by this fall, theAmerican Civil Liberties Union said Monday.

“The ACLU represents the League of Women Voters and others who accused the state of violating the 1993 National Voter Registration Act by failing to include voter-registration material in insurance applications. Nicknamed the motor-voter law, it requires states to let people register to vote when they apply for driver’s licenses or public assistance. California Secretary of State Debra Bowen told Covered California in May that the agency was covered by the voter law.”

Get it? Democrats passed the NVRA in 1993 when they controlled Congress and the White House. It mandated voter registration with government insurance. Then in 2010, when Democrats again controlled the whole shebang, they passed socialist medical insurance. Which meant that the socialized medical insurance will lead to more Democratic voters.

The idea that this somehow will lead to more democracy is not in fact the case. It’s already easy to register to vote. You can do it online. You can get an application at a local post office. You can call your county registrar of voters to get an application. Various activist groups hold get-out-the-vote rallies. And starting in 2016, you’ll even be able to register at the polls on election day.

The only way to avoid registering to vote is to either not want to, or to be exceedingly lazy. Now, even that won’t be an impediment.

    I dunno, John…sure they will be on Medi-Cal or get a heavy subsidy to be on Covered Colliefornia (as Ahnode calls it). BUT are how happy are they going to be when they can’t find a doctor who takes their coverage or how are those Covered Colliefornians going to feel about $6,000 deductibles?

    Maybe they won’t be so happy with those Demoncrats.

    I love the idea of Obamacare ™ registering voters! This drive would tend to lend itself to minority recruitment of voters, something this Nation needs!

          Donkey still thinks only white male property owners should ever be allowed to vote.

          Of course you do Skdog, it gives the RAGWUS the advantage of giving out crumbs to the poor while you steal large portions of taxpayers dollars for your own gain. 🙂

    Under Democrats, man exploits his fellow man. Under Republicans, it’s the opposite.

    So, making it easy and convenient for people to register to vote is now a vast left-wing plot against representative democracy and our republican form of government? Who knew?
