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.

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

U.S. military personnel has been on the ground in Yemen sifting through the aftermath of recent drone strikes, helping to retrieve bodies and data from the scene of a handful of weekend drone strikes carried out by the CIA, a source told Fox News on Tuesday. Separately, Fox News has learned that U.S. pilots provided airlift to Yemeni troops via Russian-built MI8 helicopters overnight for a separate ambush on a vehicle believed to be carrying top Al Qaeda militants. The missions follow the recent targeting of suspected terrorists in the country. On Monday, a suspected U.S. drone strike in southern Yemen killed 68 people,

President Obama vowed that the nation would be "strong right alongside" the victims of the Oso, Wash. mudslide after touring the area where a hillside gave way last month and wiped out a small neighborhood, killing at least 41 people. "The country is thinking about all of you and have been throughout this tragedy," Obama said. "We´re not going anywhere. We´ll be here as long as it takes." Obama thanked first responders, federal officials, and lawmakers, saying they have been "relentless in making sure Oso has the resources they need." And Obama said he was "inspired by the incredible way the community

More than 2,800 Internal Revenue Service workers who had been disciplined recently received millions of dollars in bonuses and time off as part of an employee recognition program, a new government audit shows. The IRS has a program that rewards its employees for a job well done, but a report released Tuesday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that, between October 1, 2010, and December 31, 2012, more than 2,800 recently disciplined IRS workers got more than $2.8 million in monetary awards and more than 27,000 hours in time-off awards.

The self-styled “civil rights” organization Southern Poverty Law Center, which despite mounting controversy maintains some links to government agencies, released a bizarre and factually challenged screed attacking critics and opponents of the deeply controversial United Nations plot known as Agenda 21. Apparently unfamiliar with the definition of basic words such as “conspiracy” and “theory,” or with the UN plan itself, the SPLC also lashed out at “activist groups,” “mainstream politicians,” voters, “extremists,” and others who question or oppose the UN agenda for what it calls “sustainable development” in the United States.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture.
