On his Monday evening broadcast, syndicated talk show host Mark Levin pointed out the "absurdity" of referring to the requirements needed to enroll in Obamacare as "racist" if they are applied to voter identification requirements.
As previously observed by the Examiner,
"A provision of ObamaCare, the 'individual mandate' requires that you and your dependents have health insurance in 2014 or pay a penalty (really a tax, according to the Supreme Court). The penalty increases over time....As it stands, enrollees will need to provide a Social Security card, as well as some form of identification, along with tax returns."
The Department of Justice has been filing lawsuits against states such as Texas, "over the State’s strict voter photo identification law," as explained in this August press release.
In September, the Examiner reported that
"the Department of Justice is suing North Carolina over their voter ID requirements, the very same requirements needed to enroll in Obamacare."
President Obama heartily supports the Justice Department's efforts. As reported by the AP via the Huffington Post, President Obama declared that he "will use tools available through the Voting Rights Act to keep jurisdictions from enacting laws that have the effect of preventing people from voting."
Mark Levin said,
"I looked at the homepage, and I thought...if people are not capable of getting a photo ID...how the hell are they going to work their way through that? If you can't afford a photo ID to vote, how are you going to get on the computer?"
Levin continued to say,
"Healthcare.gov is racist...because it requires all this information to be put into a website that poor people can obviously not possibly do, according to the liberal mentality and the liberal arguments."
Perhaps the Department of Justice should file a lawsuit against President Obama for disenfranchising poor people.
