    Should convicted felons be allowed to navigate a White House-managed website?

    HS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today told the Senate Finance Committee that convicted felons could become ObamaCare navigators, citing federal regulations do not require criminal background checks for governmental site navigators. Are you ok with this or do you feel a criminal background check should be mandatory for the potential navigators?

    Having access to people's personal information answers your question itself.  No.

    Yeah, right like anyone would be OK with that? Of course there should be mandatory background checks for people with access to your personal information. Better yet they should fire the imbeciles who care so little about our citizen's private information and identity properties that they would approve of such activities without safeguards.

      tsadjatko, I find it interesting to learn how very contrary to the general mindset some folks' views are. This is why I sometimes pose questions as this smile

      beth sometimes it amazes me that people will think the unthinkable is okay.  Until their wallet is in jeopardy.  LMBO

      Well looky here TFP- peeples is one of those people - why am I not surprised. She poses a question of her own, then asks me to comment and when she sees the comment exposes her inadequacies she deletes it. Navigators were created to rehab felons?barf

      tsadjatko, I'm unsure if you are talking about me but please tell me when I have deleted anything of yours. I have NEVER deleted any comments or answers to my questions EVER. Most of your comments come up as spam and I approve and then wait for mods.

      If I may interject a moment about the "deleted" comment thing: I believe HP's is having a problem with duplicate comments, as I have received numerous emails about identical answers, and if they are having this kind of problem, then it may...

      Seriously tsa, I can disagree with you all day, but I am never the type of person to say I am 100% right. I would never delete your answer based on being different than my own belief. My husband is Christian and disagrees often, I still love despite.

      Peep well what happened to my comment to your "Please enlighten me since you are so superior. " I doubt any true Christian organization can justify having atheists in ministry positions." Implies they shouldn't work together to help those in need.

      I just scoured through all 105 comments on that question and it says under yours "This comment is currently awaiting moderation" I have already marked it as NOT SPAM. It is still awaiting HP mods. I get disagreed with plenty, I never delete.

      I didn't know hp mods moderate comments - they don't moderate the comments on my Question and Answers. You comment it appears unless I delete it.

    First, with all of the problems with the website, many were screaming about how their tax dollars would be used to fix it all. No one wants to pay to fix the system. So this is a reasonable way of fixing it. Not all felons are out to steal personal information and I assume they would pick people who did not have a history or an affiliation with people who did those types of crimes.
    The point of prison is to rehabilitate people. This is a job skill that could be used when reentering the work force. I think since this seems to serve multiple purposes then it's a great idea.
    I think many really forget the point of prison.

      okay so you go to your local prison and give the felons there all your personal information so they can sign you up for Obamacare - maybe, if it works. You really want convicted felons knowing exactly where you live?

      You realize 28% of prisoners are in for drug crimes right? Only 1.7% are in jail for identity theft. The majority of felons are no threat to me, SO as long as they keep it to those who will never be released or screen them well I have no problems.

      Your answer isn't what is going on. Navigators aren't there to fix the system.  They collect user info and advise within their limited scope of knowledge about insurance issues.  It has nothing to do with prison.  They are out pf prison.

      So you're saying they have already served their debt to society and are no longer incarcerated?

      The whole point isn't that convicted felons (who are out of jail) can be navigators, it's that there are no background checks to keep people who are criminals or want to commit crimes like identity theft from accessing our private information.
