Katie Pavlich writes that we should first hire some librarians to read the bill, but unfortunately it’s already too late for that.
From the Washington Times:
The nation’s librarians will be recruited to help people get signed up for insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Up to 17,000 U.S. libraries will be part of the effort to get information and crucial computer time to the millions of uninsured Americans who need to get coverage under the law.President Obama will address the ALA conference tomorrow morning via recorded message and personally deliver the good news. What Obama won’t tell librarians is that when Obamacare collapses under its own weight he may also ask them to perform prostate exams and STD tests.
The undertaking will be announced Sunday in Chicago at the annual conference of the American Library Association, according to federal officials who released the information early to The Associated Press.
Libraries equipped with public computers and Internet access already serve as a bridge across the digital divide, so it made sense to get them involved, said Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
