Ca GOP creates fake health care website to discourage constituents

Are there no depths to which the GOP will not sink?<my comment

Daily Kos: California GOP creates fake health care website to discourage constituents from obtaining insurance

California Republicans are desperate and shameless. In the past two weeks, GOP Assembly members have sent mailings out on what appears to be the state's dime to their constituents about health insurance. Only, they don't direct those people to CoveredCA.com to sign up. Instead, they send them to their own astroturf version with the url CoveringHealthCareCA.com.
On their version, there are links to negative articles and twisted messages intended to sour people on signing up for health insurance before they ever land at the official health exchange site.

there is no proof at all that any gop member in CA was involved in this. the article is completely without a single source or cite. it is pure fiction and of course the liberals just soak it up....look at the supposed republican jakestarkey, he IMMEDIATELY accepts it as true, despite coming from the daily kos.

and really expects people to believe he is a republican...Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see images.

So you're admitting to being a lying POS. CA GOP has nothing to do with it.
[do you know Texas has the most citizens of all the 50 states without health insurance?]

But, I digress. You OKTexass have no evidence a lie was committed, and the evidence suggests no lie was committed. That makes your allegation a lie and you a liar. Sadly, to convict you of a lie one must prove intent and most would agree you're too damn dumb to plan ahead. I'd bet you **** your pants at least thrice a week.

The tip of the coming iceberg.

My bet is we will be seeing a lot more of this.

Consumer, State Officials Warn Buyers To Be On the Lookout For Fake, Look-Alike Exchange Sites - Kaiser Health News

Quote:
As states are setting up their online health insurance marketplaces, officials are watching for look-alike websites that can lead consumers to be the victims of fraud or simply, confusion.

States are on the lookout for websites created by interest groups, private insurance companies and sometimes scammers that have similar web addresses and the appearances of the official state exchange websites. Officials are intervening in some cases and trying to make sure consumers are able to spot a fake site before they give out private information.

"These exchanges could range from deceptive but relatively benign marketing devices for legitimate insurance companies to malicious devices that are designed to steal your identity or insurance information," said James Quiggle, communications director for the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud.

In California, for example, typing in Coveredcalifornia.com takes a user to an informational website, with a fine print disclaimer that it is not the state-run site Coveredca.com. State insurance officials monitor the website -- run by the Health Exchange Consulting group as a source of information on the state exchange -- because consumers may easily type in the wrong web address. Because the site is not being used for commercial purposes, however, the state has not interfered.

Pennsylvania insurance officials intervened in July when a private insurance company welcomed consumers to the "Pennsylvania Health Exchange" with the state seal in the corner. The company took the website down immediately and apologized.

"We believe it was not done in a malicious manner," said Melissa Fox, spokesperson for the Pennsylvania Insurance Department. "We do have an enforcement bureau to make sure that the folks that are selling, soliciting and negotiating insurance are complying with regulations."
Then there are the denial of service attacks -

Republicans will do whatever they can to keep Americans from getting affordable health care.

They're scum.

And, they're suicidal.
