Columbia, SC (WLTX) - South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson is heading to Washington to testify to a senate subcommittee about the Affordable Health Care Act.
He is joining 11 other Attorneys General from across the nation to urge lawmakers to delay the implementation of the program.
The new law is supposed to go into effect October 1, with the help of a group of people called Navigators. The Navigators will educate the public about the plans available and sign people up for the program.
Wilson says there are flaws in that program and the government is rushing to push the system through to try and prove that it works, and not taking into account the public's safety.
"Now we are going to release an army of people with 20 hours of online training, only 20 hours of training, no background checks, no security checks ,and we are going to allow them to have access to your financial information, employment information and potentially your personal health information," Wilson said. "You know to con artists out there bon appetite we are inviting you to come in and do some damage."
On September 30th, WLTX will be on your side answering your questions about signing up for the Affordable Health Care Act. We will have experts in taking any questions you might have from five in the morning until 11 p.m.
