Obama health czar: Obamacare
is driving up insurance rates
before it drives them down

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 11:53:59 AM

President Obama’s health care adviser during the Obamacare debate admitted that health insurance rates are rising in anticipation of the implementation of the health care law, but argued that it’s because the law will lower rates later. “[It´s] in anticipation of 2014 and the fact that we’re going to have real competition in the exchanges and rates are going to come down,” Dr. Zeke Emanuel, former White House health care adviser and brother of former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, said on Morning Joe when asked why insurance rates are rising as much as 25 percent.

Comments:
I never thought I would live to see the day where things got this bad in Washington. It is depressing and beyond frustrating to watch these insane morons destroy us. Zeke Emanuel is as bad as his sick and twisted brother Rahm.

Is this a 2013 version of: I voted for it before I voted against it; I voted against it before I voted for it.

I would ask Zeke to name a single time in our history where medical insurance rates went down...

What a Moron!

Oh, I see.... we´ll glory and revel in the 15% insurance rate deduction, AFTER we´ve seen the 150% increase.

Obama´s "new normal". Depending on the stupidity of people since 2007.

Competition...does not change basic econ. It might drive out excessive overheads, but when the insurance pool drives out the healthy low risk members, the actual costs of insuring the high risk members will go up.

Agreeing with a previous poster, the health czar seems to be an intellectual moron.

Health insurance rates will continue to go up, if for no other reason, changes in technology.
Zeke is a liar, who has not really practiced medicine on a day to day basis.
He also loves the british health care system.

Oh, it´s the things get worse before they get better. Next they´ll tell us that rates went up "unexpectedly." When rates continue to skyrocket, liberal democrats will vilify insurance companies, outlaw private health policies and transform us to a single payer plan which was the objective all along.

Doesn´t this bring to mind the passage in "1984" where on one day the chocolate ration is reduced 20%, and then the next day it´s increased 10%, and everyone rejoices?

Strange days indeed...

Wasn´t Zeke the name of Brer Bear? You know the big, oafish, dull-witted one of the pair repeatedly outwitted by Brer Rabbit. I guess that make Rahm Brer Fox, the little, mean, rascally one. Hussein would be the TB: black, vacant, soul-less--- but dangerous to run up against.

1. FTA: "[It´s] in anticipation of 2014 and the fact that we’re going to have real competition in the exchanges and rates are going to come down," Dr. Zeke Emanuel, former White House health care adviser

Alice called. You know -- from Wonderland? And no, they don´t want their "health care adviser" back. [She was laughing really hard.]

2. As someone observed, how is it that the same people who think we can´t afford doctors, hospitals, and medical care now, tell us we can afford doctors, hospitals, and medical care, plus a gov´t bureaucracy to run it all?

3. And then to load the insurers with millions of people who have or may have pre-existing conditions, but take away the insurers´ ability to factor those costs into the premiums? And it´s all going to work? Any of it´s going to work?

4. Is it really a stretch to think this has all been designed to destroy our healthcare? It seems a lot more believable almost by the day....

It would be easier to just admit it does not, could not and never will work, but then they no longer draw a paycheck.

Well, well, well. Where have they been hiding Zeke for the last four years? He was the Daddy of Obamacare. It was his healthcare plan, complete with budget - which included a mandatory VAT - that was ready to be put on the desk of whoever ended up HHS Secretary after little Tommy Daschle crashed and burned.

Not a peep out of Zeke for four years. He must have a new book coming out.

Really nice theory Comrade Czar, but no cigar...it has to go up before it comes down?...that is truly evolutionary (probably even revolutionary). I prefer Newton´s Third Law of Motion...for EVERY action there is an equal and opposite REACTION! The going up part is the reaction and it´s not coming down!

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

Why is US Senator Harry

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
