A new video produced by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas seemingly shows Obamacare “navigators” in Dallas, Texas, advising a man to provide false information on his application to get more subsidies and a lower premium.
Secretly video recording the exchange, a Project Veritas “investigator” tells Obamacare navigators at the National Urban League’s offices in Dallas that he never reports his outside income when filing his taxes, which is likely untrue. The navigators then advise him not to get himself in “trouble” by reporting the income to the IRS now.
“You’re supposed to file a percentage of it,” the navigator, identified as “Mrs. Dorothy,” says in the video. “Don’t get yourself in trouble by declaring it now.”
“Yeah, it didn’t happen,” another navigator, “Lakisha Williams,” adds.
Later in the video, other Obamacare navigators at NUL Irving Community Center can be heard informing the Project Veritas investigator not to identify himself as a smoker in order to receive a lower health insurance premium.
“They have — I don’t know where it said it says something about if you smoke or something like that, but I don’t really smoke,” the Project Veritas staffer says.
“You lie because your premiums will be higher,” an Obamacare navigator “assistant” replies.
“Don’t tell them that,” Obamacare navigator “Sabrina Hill” chimes in.
The same Obamacare navigator assistant later added, “I always lie on mine.”
It should be noted that the video is heavily edited and employs deceptive tactics in order to catch the navigators offering the shocking advice.
