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.

Glenn Beck has previously expressed his desire to be less political and more like Walt Disney, and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Beck reveals he’s working on three movies to make the kind of entertainment he would want to see more of in theaters. Beck’s company Mercury Radio Arts is working on building up a film division, and he says right now he’s working on three movies: “one set in ancient history, one in modern history and a third he considers ‘faith-based.’” For anyone that might wonder why the ex-Fox News commentator would get into the Hollywood game,

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

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

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
