On Wednesday Fox News host Bill Hemmer found a new reason to dislike Obamacare: It’s because it’s offered in 150 languages. I know, right? Obama’s walking around acting like there is a good percentage of Americans who are more comfortable speaking in their native dialect, in order to fully comprehend Affordable Health Care.
Raw Story reports, “At a briefing on Tuesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had noted that call centers were prepared to answer questions about the health care law in 150 languages.
Sebelius told MSNBC that the translators were necessary “to answer questions, help people understand some of the terminology.”
Hemmer said, “There’s also a report that says there’s 150 different languages available to those who wanted to sign up Where does that happen?”
He continued, “I got an idea. How about English?”
“English, that would be a good start,” co-host Martha MacCallum agreed.

Dana Perino weighs in:
Offering Obamacare in 150 languages is absurd. If someone can’t speak enough English to fill in forms, what will they explain to a doctor?

How is this even pertinent to the topic of Obamacare? Easy access and easy enrollment is the goal.
