A California couple who wanted to remain anonymous called 10News after they received an envelope from California’s Obamacare website, Covered California. The became concerned after opening the letter finding a voter registration card inside from their health insurance provider. The voter registration and a registration card had been pre-marked with an “x” in the box next to Democratic Party.
The couple says they have been registered Republicans for years and were left speechless as to how the voter registration card pre-marked Democrat ended up in their mailbox.
“I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife,” said the man who received the mailer.
ABC news reports that “Covered California began mailing out voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups.” But no one really knows how to explain the pre-signed voter registration cards.
“It’s a waste of money because there’s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don’t need to. I can see that, but I can’t see putting x on the form before it’s given to me in a little bitty box that nobody’s really going to notice,” said the recipient of the mailer.
Covered California Spokeswoman Anne Gonzales stated, “We are mailing voter registration material. However, the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State’s office, with no fields pre-marked. The individual should contact the Secretary of State, which takes these violations of election law extremely seriously, and they will investigate, using the unique serial number.”
This is just one more example of Obama being right when he said Obamacare is working just as it was intended to.
