Insurance cancelled? Don´t blame
Obama or the ACA, blame America´s
insurance companies

Fox News, by Juan Williams

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/5/2013 4:23:58 PM

Liar! Pinocchio! Deceiver! With all the charges flying against President Obama in the on-going effort to stop ObamaCare it’s time for a reality check. Having failed to kill the Affordable Care Act in Congress by shutting down the government the opposition is currently taking delight in charging the president with lying to the public when he said anyone who likes their current healthcare plan will be able to keep it under the new law. It turns out that some people in the individual care market – about 5 percent of the overall insurance market -- are having their insurance policies

Comments:
The government did not “force” insurance companies to cancel their own substandard policies???? Really Juan?? Sometimes I think he deserved what he got from NPR. He should be ashamed of himself for all of these lies and misrepresentations. It´s obvious he is following the orders of his fellow comrades. Never tell the truth, always support the Marxist lying leader!

The government defined a substandard policy as one that doesn´t include free birth control to post-menapausal women, Juan.

Once upon a time I thought there was hope for Juan, considering how badly the left abused him for not toeing the company line 110% of the time. I´ve now come to the conclusion there´s no hope for him. He just keeps saying dumber and dumber stuff. Watching him on Fox against Mary Katherine Hamm is not pretty. He´s now got the mentailty that if you yell, you win.

Harry Reid´s mother in law gets her insurance from Kaiser.

As of October 1 this year she can no longer use Fairfax Hospital (INOVA)

She will probably die on the long ambulance ride to Baltimore (it´s gonna´ be free ya hear) after Ol´Har coldcocks her after she grabs his ear to tell him how he has inconvenienced her!!!

The HMO was invented in DC back in the Great Depression. We used to have a lot of them. Kaiser spent the last 15 or 20 years absorbing all of them, and now the customers can´t count on hospitalization locally.

I say a crime was commited.

Shut up Juan. We can safely blame your Zero Hero for all of it. From inception to imlememtation. It´s his baby. He is the baby daddy and it´s time for Big Daddy to man up stand up and accept responsibility. To do otherwise is taking the cowards way out. You are simply enabling him and not helping him at all. When you think you are helping, you aren´t helping. Keep it up JW. You are such a useful tool. Look in the mirror Juan. Your nose seems to be getting longer.

Hey, Juan: "Blame the Insurance Companies" was last week´s talking point. Today´s is something about "if it didn´t change..." (as mandated by the HHS)

Let me give you a hint: Tomorrow´s will be (If McAuliffe succeeds in stealing the Virginia election). "Terry´s election proves the people are behind Obamacare."

If he loses everybody in Virgina is a racist.

Juan, like most liberals, have no knowledge of the basics of economics and the running of businesses. Liberals believe that businesses should offer their products so as not to make a profit. Profits are evil to them.

So go ahead, blame insurance companies who cannot make money when Obamacare and its regs make that impossible. Oh, and Juan, why don´t you explain that to the state insurance regulators who oversee insurance companies. Maybe you can wow them with your idiotic logic as well.

Oh, one more thing, just wait till the employer mandate kicks in. It will be a lot, a lot more than 5% who lose their policies.

You let the cat out of the bag, juan. What bothers you, and your fellow communists, is that the insurance companies make money. That is the purpose of obamacare, to correct that problem they will destroy the insurance companies. The astounding thing is that the insurance companies are falling for the bait.

So let me get this straight, Juan. If a thousand of your friends put their money together to form an insurance company to serve their community, the risk pools and payouts should not be BOTH self-sustaining AND profitable.

Your friends should have invested their time, energy and money merely to be the unpaid servants of the policy holders?

Worse yet, it seems you want them to LOSE money in the process.

Either you don´t understand how business works, by providing a service in a competitive market, and receiving only the rate of income that a competitive market allows, or you hate those hypothetical friends who would lose their money if they followed your rules.

I have noticed that the liberals Fox News hires often become less so and thus less valuable to the ´fair & balanced´ equation.

I think they must get occasional pep talks encouraging them to be more vocal and unhinged on air so they hold up their end of that bargain/equation.

They need the contrast.

Case in point is Kirsten Powers´ recently revealed new found Christianity.

Watch for her to be more strident to counteract that revelation.

Thank you, OP, for bringing this to us. It is important, every now and then, to see how unhinged leftists can creatively (and clumsily) lie to protect an idol, an ideology and a narrative.

It is utterly frightening to see this level of progressive tenacity which we must deal with. And brought to us, of course, by our favorite ´conservative´ cable TV news station,

Juan, get out of town. The insurance policies were written by democrat hacks to cover people who cannot, or won´t pay, for pre-existing conditions, and for coverage that the purchaser does not want, or need. These policies are mandated by Obamacare, so the other policies are canceled by law. The insurance companies have nothing to do with the policies, but are guilty of wanting the government to require everyone to have a policy.

Juan, does it hurt to have the White House´s hand up your back and to have sawdust for brains?

BO was unequivocal about this, "We could keep our insurance plans, doctors, and our costs would drop by $2500 per family. Period!" NONE of these things are true.

Juan, we don´t all drive BMWs because we cannot all afford them or may not choose to pay the price for them. Most of us don´t need all the "extras" demanded by BOCare and do NOT want or may not be able to afford to pay for them.

The point is, in a free society, people get to choose what is best for them, even if they turn out to be wrong about it. Insurers are not taking advantage of us. They offer services at a set price. We decide if those services are worth that price, TO US. To many people, they are. No, the policies we buy don´t have all the BOCare bells and whistles. We don´t want them and we don´t want to pay for them.

BO promised we would continue to have that choice. HE LIED!

Marxists and dumb people believe there is such a thing as a free lunch. They cannot understand that people do not work for free. Of course Juan and his fellow travelers also do not work for free but still think others should. When you require a health insurance company to cover more services it costs more. When you require them to cover people who have higher risks and will be sicker more often it costs them more. They do not work for free just like Juan. It is very simple really and it so escapes those who mindlessly follow the politicians they have fallen in love with. If Juan truly believes these silly concepts he should be the first one to line up and work for free. He should take his pay cut and perform for Fox News for minimum wage.

Facebook removes my post about

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

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.

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

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being.
