Errors & Omissions: Protecting the State of the Union From the Statements the President Made
Errors and omissions (E&O) is the coverage that protects you from another individual or company that wants to hold you responsible for something that you provided which does not give expected results. Does the President have coverage? There were many statements made last night during the State of the Union that didn’t seem to match up with reality for many Americans. Going through the transcript | Read More »
Power means privilege
When the first big stories of ObamaCare “doc shock” began to circulate, and it dawned on Americans that they might not be able to keep their doctors under Barack Obama’s health care scheme – contrary to another of his absolutely unambiguous, often-repeated promises – Zeke Emanuel was sent out to conduct spin control. He might not have been the best choice for the job, because | Read More »
#Obamacare watch: latest rules openly trampling on the uninsured.
So, here’s Bob Laszewski’s description of the latest way that the Obama administration rewrote the law and tax code: If you had a health insurance policy that was cancelled, you are now exempt from the individual mandate and its tax penalty should you not decide to buy a replacement policy. In addition, you can now sign up for the very high deductible Catastrophic Plan that | Read More »
So. @barackobama took away your plan, but now won’t fine you for not having one.
Big of him. And the rest of the Democratic party. And by ‘big of him’ I mean… something unprintable. The Obama administration will not require the millions of Americans who received health-insurance plan cancellation notices to purchase a new policy next year. They’re granting those consumers an exemption from the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, a Department of Heath and Human Services spokeswoman confirmed. The | Read More »
This Is Not A Monarchy Watch: panicky HHS just making up new #obamacare ‘laws’ on the spot.
Glenn Reynolds has a question about this: The Obama administration on Thursday pushed back the deadline for consumers to make their first payment for coverage under the healthcare law. Rather than a deadline of Dec. 23, insurers will be required to accept premium payments through Dec. 31 for people who are seeking coverage that starts on Jan. 1. [snip] In addition to the one-week extension | Read More »
Covered California’s war on privacy. #obamacare
Hey, did you sign up an account in the California Obamacare exchanges? If you did, guess what: Covered California gave out your personal information to brokers, the better for them to call you up out of the blue and try to sell you an insurance policy! Isn’t that nice of Covered California? Raising concerns about consumer privacy, California’s health exchange has given insurance agents the | Read More »
#Obamacare is holding a gun to the collective head of 93 million insurance policies.
This is… bad. Background: Jay Carney, speaking as White House Press Secretary (notice how all of the administration’s official Obamacare cheerleaders are loyal partisans, instead of respected policy wonks?) tried to argue that Obama’s “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” lie would only turn around to bite people in the individual insurance market. Not so fast, says Avik Roy: Contrary to | Read More »
NBC: up to 10.5 million on track to have @BarackObama/Democratic party take away their health insurance.
Actually, before I get started on that… please watch this related ad on Terry McAuliffe, and his uncritical – not to say, slavish – devotion to one of the greatest American civic disasters since Prohibition. I refer, of course, to Obamacare: Got that? Good. Go help Ken Cuccinelli.
#Obamacare watch: How the Democrats threw a pregnant woman off her insurance.
All in the name of “helping” her, of course. Fullerton resident Jennifer Harris thought she had a great deal, paying $98 a month for an individual plan through Health Net Inc. She got a rude surprise this month when the company said it would cancel her policy at the end of this year. Her current plan does not conform with the new federal rules, which | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 56: Debt Limit Flip-Flops, and the ObamaCare Math
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. I had a nice conversation with a Twitter follower on the flipping and flopping may Democrats have done on the whole debt limit issue. They were very much against raising it until one of their guys is sitting in the White House. What a difference an administration makes! I was | Read More »
Evolution Gives Us The Answer To Obamacare
If in life, adversity is the true mother of invention. Catastrophic calamity is the catalyst for evolution. We are in the bowels of catastrophic calamity. Obamacare is the catalyst which will cause new answers to the game. As an example, Medicare was touted as the saving grace for all the older members of our community. But as the requirements on this system grew, and the | Read More »

HHS might also be biased? No freaking way.
Earlier tonight, I was watching a WWE pay-per-view when I glanced at Twitter and saw David Limbaugh post a link and ask if anyone knew about this story: Multiple federal investigations are probing the $2 billion Obamacare co-op loan program at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, The Washington Examiner has learned. [Skip] Investigators are focusing on the co-op program’s lack of transparency, high likelihood | Read More »
Are Obamacare Pressures Unconstitutional?
As each day passes, the various facets of Obamacare are getting implemented in order to be fully operational by 2014. And we are beginning to hear about difficulties in the implementation caused by 1) people or companies trying to avoid the “penalties” or 2) people wanting to pay the penalties in order to avoid having to pay for intentionally overpriced health “insurance”. In order to | Read More »
Some insurers may extend existing policies until after 2014 elections.
Well, we had to pass the bill before w… oh, never bloody mind. At issue is a little-known loophole in President Obama’s landmark legislation that enables health insurers to extend existing policies for nearly all of 2014. This runs contrary to the widespread belief that all health insurance must immediately comply with new federal rules starting Jan. 1, when most provisions of the law take | Read More »
