As if it wasn't bad enough that the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, roll-out was a total mess, and the website has only just started working, now comes news that people have been further confused by fake, misleading websites. The California Republican Assembly is under fire for creating CoveringHealthCareCA.com, which is suspciously similar to and could be way too easily mistaken for the state's health care exchange, CoveredCA.com.
The GOP site, which launched in August, actually started raising eyebrows this week, because various Republican Assembly members sent out mailers to their constituents, pointing to their deceptive website as a “resource guide” for information on the Affordable Care Act. And that's still what they're claiming in their defense ... that it's meant as a tool to help constituents know what the law means for them. Suuuure!
