#ObamaCare As Community Organizing Tool

A community organizer’s gotta community organize, you know. If ObamaCare can’t reliably hook people up with health insurance, at least it can create an engine for agitating Democratic constituencies.

Since the passage of Obamacare, all fifty state Medicaid agencies have been forced to create a new standalone database that contains nothing besides the contact information of Medicaid applicants who used Healthcare.gov.

Some of these new databases mail out voter registration forms automatically. You cannot refuse them.

[…]

[T]hese new databases are accessible by groups like Organizing for Action, the reconstituted ACORN, and malevolent figures like Chris Tarango.

The law treats Healthcare.gov as a governmental service office under the 1993 Motor Voter bill, creating a direct marketing pipeline to Medicaid recipients, who just happen to vote largely Democratic. If I had to hazard a guess, this is probably the only provision of the bill that Obama actually understood before he signed the thing.
