Despite what you might have heard from President Obama during last year’s debates, Planned Parenthood does more than just provide live-saving mammograms. Three branches of Planned Parenthood have been awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to help people get signed up for Obamacare.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today announced the winners of $67 million in “Navigator” grants. So-called Navigators will “serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace this fall.” We know that Planned Parenthood has extensive experience in receiving taxpayer money from the government, but will the affiliates do a better job selling Obamacare than they do providing those mammograms?
On Tuesday, the District of Columbia awarded $375,000 to Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., to help people sign up for Obamacare.
