Skip to comments.Waxman: Selling Individual Insurance is 'Abuse'
Posted on 10/30/2013 11:11:25 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Following Waxman, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) compared the cancellations to the government forcing drivers to trade in Fords to buy Ferraris. Under Waxman's logic, the fact that consumers might benefit from cheaper plans, even if those plans did not offer the same array of benefits, is irrelevant. The free choice of individual consumers and insurance providers offering a legal and beneficial product is defined as "abuse."
Under Waxman's definition, a student graduating from a professional school who happened to be older than 26 (and hence ineligible to stay on his or her parents' insurance) and who found a job in a small organization that did not provide insurance to employees would be a victim of "abuse" if he or she found an affordable individual insurance policy that provided basic protection from catastrophic health problems.
Waxman--and Obamacare--would rather force that graduate to choose between a far more expensive policy on the Obamacare exchanges (assuming he or she could register) that includes more benefits than he or she wants, on the one hand, or not buying any insurance at all and paying the penalty to the IRS, on the other, knowing full well that he or she could not be denied emergency treatment or insurance coverage later.

These clowns at this point are so full of sh@t they can’t even put a cognitive opinion out there that makes sense! Complete @sshat dizzying morons. It’s like arguing with an 8th grade class president who promised free crap if you voted for them.
You cannot have a rational discussion with people like Waxman. The very definition of common words is different. The thought pattern of liberals is so bizarre that there is virtually no hope they will comprehend your argument or have the slightest ability to objectively analyze their own positions. Its really quite hopeless.
America is governmend by pot bellied pigs with a few human chromosomes dispersed.
..shut your slop hole pig face
Yes, since the beginning, people of that ideology have been twisting the common meaning of words.
“Did God really ssssssay....?”
Well said, and tragically spot on.
The ‘freedom of choice’, isn’t that what the pro-abortion crowd has been screaming for 40 plus years?.............
Please don’t insult the pot bellied pigs. They are really nice...................
Waxman is a pig-snouted little totalitarian $hit.
Waxman: Capitalism is abuse.
Damn you! Don’t you know there is a no photo policy when dealing with this man?
Oh! You too ....strict no photo policy should be enforced!
Leftist Logic: Free choice = abuse.
they are not being forced to trade in Fords for Ferrari’s they are being made to trade in Fords for Fords but without things they wanted, and with things they didn’t want and the new policy is priced more like a Ferrari.
That's the best argument they have. ‘Americans are victims and we will protect them from greedy insurance companies’
Of course GOP should emphasize that Obamacare plans with deductibles jacked up to $6000 are one hell of a way to protect us.
It is if you have, as a core assumption, that the average person is incapable of making decisions in his own best interest and requires elite “protectors” such as yourself to make decisions for them.
What a friggin moron he is.
According to my state exchange the cheapest plane is over $200/month with a $6,300 deductible. That over $8,600 out of pocket before insurance covers any costs. What a deal!
This is virtually the same line of reasoning that was being pushed on DU yesterday. Maybe before that for all I know.
Waxman is delusional....were the hell does he think ‘tax credits’ come from?! The taxpayers who pay the bills, Waxman, you moron!
86% of Americans are not going to get ‘tax credits’, they will be pushed into Medicaid (welfare) instead, which is basically a single payer system like the wanted all along.
Did anyone ask Waxman if he had signed up for Obamacare yet?!

Mr. Chairman, the report ignored the fact that under Obamacare, the 85% of Americans with employer or public coverage will see little change in premiums or coverage because of the law.
The Republicans report ignores the impact of the Affordable Care Acts tax credits to help cover the cost of insurance premiums. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), 86% of Americans who receive coverage through the new Affordable Care Act Exchanges will receive tax credits, reducing costs by an average of over $5,000 per year. These tax credits will help make insurance affordable for millions.
“Leftist Logic: Free choice = abuse.”
Unless it comes to abortion!
RE :”According to my state exchange the cheapest plane is over $200/month with a $6,300 deductible. That over $8,600 out of pocket before insurance covers any costs. What a deal!”
Do you mean $6300 + 12*$200= $8700 ?
I think that the fact is that a lot of people buy individual insurance and they should be buying it with everybody else who needs to buy individual insurance. Some of those who have it now are healthy.
- Democrat Congressman, Henry Waxman
Waxman (D-CA), who serves as Ranking Member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, called the private sale of cheap health individual insurance plans the worst abuses of the insurance industry and said that Obamacare would halt those abuses.
Yep but now you get coverage for maturity hospital costs for when you give birth.
Your fly by night outlaw policy didnt include that.
Now you have peace of mind, more important than money is.
Nostrilitis bump for later...
Voting for Waxman is abuse.
Waxman on TV is abuse...... obscene it is
Yeah. Didn’t catch it on the iPhone screen.
Heh. That evil fly by night scam policy didn’t cover that. Oh wait, no wonder it didn’t cover it due to to the lack of necessary organs to give birth. Damn logic.
Doesnt that assume that you get sick annually?
Its possible to get sick the first month.
Some people hit the lotto-bowl too.
Better you pay big $$$ to others on Obamacare and have peace of mind.
LOL, this is what Dems are arguing pretty stupid, Dems are calling it a nondiscrimination item.
unfortunately the GOP seems too scared to touch it specifically now after the Dems ‘War an wimmin’ theme last year.
They dont seem to know how to argue mandates.
A House Dem female brought this exact point up today at hearing hereself.
She said ‘Health insurance companies can no longer treat pregnanacy as a pre-existing condition”
Fwighted GOP wabbbits too scared to respond after last years wimmin theme.
btw, this is a new billboard along I-75 in south Dayton (OH).
If there was a battle royale between Godzilla, King Kong, Monster X and Nostrillus, who would win?
Nostrillus, by a nose.
Workplace freedom act? LOL
California Governor Signs Law Mandating Gay Infertility Insurance Coverage
First thing fertility coverage in health insurance is stupid anyway. How about impotence coverage too?
But this gay version is even much dumber and includes too many ironies for me to list here.
Only a marxist would say what Waxman said.
It's a toss-up between Helen Thomas and Henry Waxman as to who is uglier. Anyone who posts pictures of both of them side by side would be guilty of causing projectile vomiting. Please note: this is NOT a suggestion.
NostrilDumbAss can terrify kids for real tomorrow night and every night.
