Federal Government To Enforce 'Obamacare' Regulation In Oklahoma
http://www.newson6.com ^ | 032113 | Jeff Raymond

Posted on 03/21/2013 12:23:34 PM PDT by Fred

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The federal government has informed Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak that it intends to take over swaths of insurance regulation in the state to ensure compliance with the Affordable Care Act – commonly known as “Obamacare.”

The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is notifying insurers in Oklahoma that it will handle enforcement of the ACA. In a March 15 letter to Doak, the agency notified the Insurance Department of its responsibility to enforce the ACA in Oklahoma because the state has declined to do so. Should Oklahoma enact“market reform requirements,” according to the letter, the federal government will consider transitioning regulations to the state.

Feds: We WILL make you swallow this pill.

Doak: You and what army?

Now we know why DHS is buying up hollow-point bullets and assault weapons...

Eventually there will be only one way to defeat the communists empire that is now controlling America. And the first step is to destroy he HHS. Civil war is on it's way.

Maybe it;s time for states like in the south and most in the modwest and part of inland CA and AK to leave this socialist crap they keep forcing onto us, let them have their illegals, homosexuals, weirdo’s and lay abouts.
They can also take all of their ignorant voters back north too

At this time, the State of Oklahoma has not fully incorporated the market reforms of the Affordable Care Act into State law, and otherwise lacks authority to enforce these requirements. As a result, pursuant to the requirements found at sections 2,723 and 2,761 of the Public Health Service Act (42 USC sections 300-g-g-22, 300-g-g-61), the enforcement of the market reforms of the Affordable Care Act in Oklahoma is currently the responsibility of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Policy form review is one of the enforcement tools used by CMS in this State to confirm health insurance issuers’ compliance with the provisions of the market reforms of the Affordable Care Act.

At this time I doubt that the American Citizens in the State of Oklahoma give a flying rat's azz about sections two thousand seven hundred twenty three and two thousand seven hundred sixty one of forty two usc sections three hundred slash g slash g slash twenty two OR sixty one... of obamacommiecare.

It will prove interesting if the commies actually show up in Oklahoma and attempt to force anyone to do anything.

Weird how the GOP never made more of that and how the nedia hushed it up.

How much can states in the south and the midwest and AK take from these people

I hope other states join in too and if my state does not then I move there.

This is not what the founders thought about.

what homsoexuals being married, drugs galore, no guns, no right to defence, states ruled by the feds, people being forced to acept something in violation of their religion.

The founders fought against all of this.

Probably in reaction to this:

Oklahoma House of Representatives Passes ObamaCare Nullification Bill

Joe Wolverton, II, J.D.
The New American
March 14, 2013

Standing as a bulwark of liberty, the Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a bill protecting citizens of the Sooner State from the unconstitutional provisions of ObamaCare.

By a vote of 72-20, the state House of Representatives passed House Bill 1021, a bill that if signed into law would stop the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (known as ObamaCare) at the borders of the sovereign state of Oklahoma.

The bill’s primary proponent is State Representative Mike Ritze (R-Broken Arrow). A board-certified family practice physician and surgeon, he is particularly aware of the threat to liberty and good health care posed by ObamaCare.

He was “the leader of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSDAP) until their destruction by Allied Forces in May, 1945.”

Many, many and more many cops are willing to throw out the constitution. Most of them have no idea what the constitution says. I heard a chief of police say “Our job is to enforce the laws the legislatures pass.” In other words, “We work for the government, not the people”. I wish someone would have asked him “If the government passes a law confiscating all weapons, would you attempt to enforce that law?”

Bottom line: if it comes to “us” vs “them”, the “them” will include a large majority of the cops.

I doubt that any secession in the strict sense of the word will be necessary.

The more the communists go out of control in the occupied States the more good American Citizens will pack up and leave them in their dust.

The Free States are steadily gaining motivated common sense Americans that do not allow revocation of their rights. They are good solid workers and reliable voters, having already voted with their feet. Same goes with successful businesses.

The Free States will eventually be so successful with their superior population, both economically and in their respect for liberty, there will no longer be a need for secession. They will simply let the communist states crumble into nothingness. The commie occupied states will have "Gone Detroit."

Free states will have “gone success.”

Think Magpul, Beretta, etc.

Think "Secession by Success!"

The successful respecters of freedom are not limited to the Second Amendment. The more the commies demand control over basic liberties, the more they will eat the dust of successful producers and the weaker the commies become.

Oh, look... it's TEA time.

They’ll be too broke and spread too thin and the states will just thumb their noses at them.

Well....since our taxes pay their salaries....

the answer and solution to this (yet more) Big Government Tyranny should be obvious. And if that doesn’t work....

there is always another rather obvious solution. And it looks like it’s coming down to that alternative even sooner than we thought.
