“Sixteen states most of them governed by Republicans have said they will not set up their own systems, forcing the federal government to come up with one instead.”
Any way of knowing which 16?
These exchanges look like a massive dating mining operation for the federales
Cardinal Dolan and the USCCB which he heads still SUPPORT Obamacare.
This means that the bishops of my Church are my ENEMIES, because they support totalitarianism. They supported it for decades, including the four decades in which the U.S. Government has been in the hands of the pro-abortion eugenics movement. During that time, they have refused to declare that politicians who promote abortion are bad Catholics. During that time, the Popes have continued to appoint bishops to the U.S. who will not oppose the destruction of my country.
The Church to which I belong is committed to the destruction of my country.
They will never ever make the 2014 deadline. We have had some HIPAA mandates which were to be effective beginning in 2012 which are still being postponed. Private insurance carriers are good to go but Medicare isn’t.
Your idea isn’t crazy at all IMO. People who want insurance are going to get it on their own, those that don’t won’t. I don’t mind so much everyone having to have some level of coverage what I object to is BO telling me what I need to have covered. Personally I think all policies should be high deductible and primarily for inpatient services only, no carve outs to third party, no case management for outpatient services and no networks. Cut out everyone in the middle. Most doctors I know and work with will negotiate outpatient fees if you want to pay cash and there is no insurance paperwork necessary. I also have a real problem with pre-existing conditions being covered. Probably partially because it’s something I don’t have to worry about, but also because there simply is not enough money in the world to cover everything for everybody.
I hear Romney's IT team is available.
“CommieCare”....better than “ObamaCare” because there are actually stupid people who believe he deserves credit for destroying our medical system and killing old people.
No individual, company, business, nonprofit entity, or health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall be required to participate in any Federal health insurance program created under this Act (or any amendments made by this Act), or in any Federal health insurance program expanded by this Act (or any such amendment), and there shall be no penalty or fine imposed upon any such issuer for choosing not to participate in such programs.
Does this work? It’s from the Obamacare law itself.
The lousy federal government hasn’t even made a decent beginning in writing the regulations for the 2500 pages of CommieCare. How in Hades is anyone going to implement an enormous system when the bureaucrats are still trying to figure out what they are doing? No wonder thousands of physicians are planning to retire when this disaster kicks in.
And we thought that Amtrak and the USPS were badly run. At least, they couldn’t kill our parents and children.
The reason commiecare is a debacle is because it is about social engineering, not the delivery of good and affordable healthcare.
Commiecare was designed to kill off old people and seize the freedom of the younger people using their future health needs to bully them into submission.
This is what happens when communist dems get control. Everyone suffers.
The national, or the socialist?
His only goal is to "overwhelm the system."
