Insurance Policies Not Worth Keeping
New York Times, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:happywarrior, 11/3/2013 3:21:11 PM

Congressional Republicans have stoked consumer fears and confusion with charges that the health care reform law is causing insurers to cancel existing policies and will force many people to pay substantially higher premiums next year for coverage they don’t want. That, they say, violates President Obama’s pledge that if you like the insurance you have, you can keep it. Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that. By law, insurers cannot continue to sell policies that don’t provide the minimum benefits and consumer protections required as of next year. So they’ve sent cancellation notices to

Comments:
So now it´s the Pubbies scaring and confusing people with this "overblown controversy" and 0bama misspoke. This "newspaper" has no shame.

Most of the policies held by millions of Americans do not fit the idiotic tandards set by Obamacare and therefore become invalid.
Obamacare is an unfunded mandate by the Federal government against private businesses, with impossible demands.

So a single, childless 28 year old male who is able to buy a policy for, let´s say, $89 a month can no longer buy that policy for the simple reason the policy does not cover ob/gyn, birth control or pediatric dental and eyeglass coverage. That makes his policy "not worth keeping". Benefits he does not need, want or will ever use are determining what is "worth keeping". All they are doing is spreading the manure around when ever a new challenge comes along. It still smells of lying and deceit. Plus the "new" policy may very well cost more and have much higher deductibles. Thanks for nothing.

seems to that is MY call to make, as a free citizen in this once-free nation. No Obumble or his co-thieves.
But these creeps, none of them, believe in the individual, individual needs or preferences. Only the "collective", with themselves making these decisions for we proles.
It would be morally wrong for me to wish curses unceasing upon the lot of them. So. May they all go to Heaven. Soon.

Mendacity, thy name is New York Times.

"Minimum benefits" that EVERY insurance policy must include regardless of individual need, are Maternity and pediatric services.

Useless and expensive for men and certainly for women past child-bearing age. Just another way to suck money out of the working middle class and give it to pre-existing conditions.

I dunno, it was pretty clear to me and everybody else. The Obamboozler clearly said:
"If you like your doctor, you can keep him. PERIOD!"
"If you like the insurance you have, you can keep it. PERIOD!"
The emphasis was his, not mine. Nobody mis-speaks the word "period". The Obamboozler lies like a rug and that rotton rag called the New York Times sweep his Bulls-t under it!

I am so sick of political hacks saying that this isn´t good enough, if you pick something, you like it but they don´t then it isn´t good enough so you have to pay more and more and more to government. Who in their right mind would think that someone who´s sole purpose in life is to just get elected, elected (not caring about anyone but themselves and what they can skim without doing anything useful) are now the experts on all things no matter what it is. They have no useful skills but they are expert on it.

A new low for the NYT. They are ruining themselves by such shameless sophistries, which even their partisan readers cannot fail to recognize. Who can possibly respect a paper whose editors are prepared to go to such lengths in their attempt to obscure the plain, obvious, and multiply documented truth?

Obama did not "misspeak." He lied. We have him on videotape lying, not once, not twice, but time after time. After this, how could anyone believe anything he said about anything? Who can say when he will "misspeak" himself again?

Americans who are prepared to be lied to in this fashion by their president are incapable of self-government, do not deserve the liberties which their ancestors have passed on to them, and will not be able to preserve them for long.

My agency has written insurance policies for 50 years. We always tailored the coverage to what the client wanted and needed. Some young couples added maternity coverage and folks who didn´t need it didn´t buy it.

Now some ignorant hack from a left-wing newspaper purports to tell everyone what a ´good´ insurance policy contains.

The republicans don´t need to ´stoke fears´. This atrocious law is doing it and it looks like even the lofos are wising up (some of them, not all).

The arrogance of these leftists is staggering. They know better than we do how much soda is too much for us. They know better than we do what health insurance coverage is sub-standard for us. They probably know everything that´s good for us better than we do. They fervently believe. And if you disagree, well, that just shows how stupid you are.

I hope the propaganda ridden NYSlimes is the first business to get their group insurance policy cancelled and all their libtard employees experience the joy of high premiums and deductibles before the policy starts paying at 60% and they get soaked for the other 40%.

"Fashion retailer Topman has withdrawn a clothing line that featured Nazi insignia. The embarrassed clothier apologized after the blunder was pointed out by an online shopper. The "grunge look" Horace jacket — which sold for around $300 — featured an emblem worn by SS troops. The ancient Norse odal rune, reports The Mirror, is similar to a swastika and was used to symbolize Hitler´s belief in a pure Aryan race. It was worn by ethnic Germans of the 7th SS Volunteer Mountain Division in Croatia, who fought alongside the German army. The Nazi faux pas was spotted by the friend

A day after the U.S. said it would not allow Iran’s proposed U.N. envoy Hamid Aboutalebi, a diplomat with links to the 1979 hostage crisis, to enter the country, Iran has dismissed the decision and affirmed it would take the issue directly to the U.N. “We do not have a replacement for Mr. Aboutalebi and we will pursue the matter via legal mechanisms anticipated in the United Nations,” said Abbas Araghchi, a senior Foreign Ministry official, as quoted by Iran’s official IRNA news agency. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Friday the U.S. had informed the U.N. and Iran it would not issue the visa.

Stephen Colbert, the political comedian made popular on "Comedy Central," will be taking over for David Letterman as the host of CBS’ "The Late Show" once Letterman retires. But Colbert is no ordinary host. The late night comedian built himself up as a satirical political opinion character who rarely shows a normal side. The New York Times published an article in January 2012 that looked at the many sides of Colbert, including his connection to God through what his mother taught him. “She taught me to be grateful for my life regardless of what that entailed, and that’s directly related to

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

The 137-page, FBI-sworn affidavit against California State Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat who is also running for Secretary of State, and over two dozen other individuals reads like a crime thriller. Beyond the widely reported stories of alleged wire fraud, money laundering, corruption, and bribery, the affidavit contains tales of alleged murder-for-hire plots involving a political consultant close to Yee, as well as large international weapons trafficking operations. Indeed, while the media have fixated on the hypocrisy of a gun-control advocate--Yee sponsored legislation against detachable magazines, for example--alleged involvement in gun smuggling, few reports delve into the kind of weapons

The empty expanse of water is one of the most remote places in the world and also one of the deepest, posing potentially enormous challenges for the international search effort focusing on the area, one of several possible crash sites.

Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
