I think Dave Jones is too stupid to realized the immense irony of his statement.
“The president gets major legislation based on the lie that “you can keep your plan if you like it”, and when insurers are forced to cancel millions of policies, governors of the same party pressure them to extend the policies. What kind of banana republic are we living in?”
We are living in a country where the big insurance companies made a deal with the federal government at the time Obamacare was being written and debated. It is another manifestation of crony capitalism. Instead of opposing government takeover of the healthcare system (as they did with Hillarycare), the insurance companies signed on believing they had negotiated protections and would benefit from the government forcing millions of new customers to buy insurance.
At this point the insurance companies are completely corrupted. Even if Congress ended Obamacare today, the health insurance market has been thoroughly politicized.
To put this in the right prospective...the wagon train has come to see the Indians in full view and approaching. The Indians agree that they will stall their attack on the wagon train, until March....just to show they are good ethical Indians. Course, then, in March...the attack will occur, as originally planned.
You are merely delaying the negative outcome by 90 days. Nothing else changes. Why would any company agree to this? They already expect to rake in huge profits for 2014, and this delay tactic lessens the amount enough...that the President won’t say bad things in spring of 2015 about them.
How foolish are the idiot consumers in this case?
Can anyone here explain what this means?
How can they extend them?
The same banana republic where the government encouraged a low-credit housing boom, encouraged JP Morgan and Bank America to buy Bear Stearns, Countrywide Mortgage, and Merrill Lynch when trouble hit, and then turned around and sued them for bad mortgage practices by the companies they begged them to buy!
Urged? Like the way Don Corleone or Tony Soprano urge people to do certain things?
the peasants have won a reprieve until March but note that the dates NEVER extend beyond April 15th
the democrat-IRS will not be appeased
It has always planned on collecting “fines” from people who cannot afford or will not pay for their “new” obamacare insurance benefits by April 15th. and who are forced to pay higher taxes and go uninsured to boot
No doubt the expected middle class tax-rape windfall is already spent
move to Nevada folks
Harry Reid got his entire state “exempted” from this “law of the land”
“Please keep the people in the dark about how awful Obamacare is!”
But if insurers extended their policies beyond years end would the people keeping these policies be subject to an Obamacare tax (a.k.a. fine) because their policy didn’t meet the Obamacare standards?
Not just 'no', but 'HELL NO!' Don't let them do it to you. They are blaming their actions on you, and then asking you to make it OK for them. Screw 'em. Tell them you are living by their rules, and if they have a problem with it, then they need to do away with the rules that caused the problem to begin with.
So, the same people who made this the law are now asking the insurance companies to violate it??
The insurance companies are now getting it good and hard for being in bed with Obama.
They’ll now be thrown under the bus where they belong by the malignant narcissist.
I’m thinking the market reaction to Obamacare is happening faster than anticipated, and is resulting in backfire.
Just wait for all the “glitches” when your insurance company that cancelled your current and you sign up for their new “market place” plan. Computer heads will explode with all the confusion. Billing errors, payment errors, coverage errors, duplications, yada, yada, yada.
because state regulate the Insurance in their state, the Feds have zero right!!! but you know the rest
“The president gets major legislation based on the lie that “you can keep your plan if you like it””
Actually, if memory serves, the ACA was passes based on absolutely nothing other than ‘you have to pass it to find out what’s in it’.
All the insurers have to do is simply ignore this stupid law. And everyone who doesn’t want insurance should simply not buy it. What are they going to do?
