Is Obamacare Application A Democratic Voter Registration Tool?

March 25, 2013 by  

There is some speculation that the Administration of Barack Obama has set up a scheme to register voters to the Democratic Party after it was revealed that the 61-page online Obamacare draft application for healthcare includes a section to register voters.

Near the end of the application packet is the question: “Would you like to register to vote?” The placement and wording of the question could lead some applicants to the conclusion that voter registration is a requirement for healthcare.

The online application states: “This document-the ‘questionnaire’-represents each possible item that may need to be asked for successful eligibility determinations.”

The voter registration question has drawn criticism from lawmakers such as Representative Charles Boustany Jr. (R-La.) who expressed concern in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

“The draft documents wander into areas outside the department’s purview and links applications for health insurance subsidies to voter registration,” he wrote in the letter provided to Washington Secrets. “The position of the question could lead some to think voter registration is somehow tied to subsidy eligibility,” he added.
