Skip to comments.(Washington) State rebuts Obama plan to allow old health insurance policies
Posted on 11/14/2013 12:48:56 PM PST by Zakeet
Just hours after President Obama announced changes to his health care law to give insurance companies the option to keep offering consumers plans that would otherwise be canceled, Washington state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler says those changes will not be allowed in our state.

We don' need no steenking laws!....................
I found the most striking thing Obama said today at the press conference was his sudden realization that most Americans weren't up to the task of selecting their own health insurance. They didn't understand the bureaucratic language and the website must be simplified to make it work. Basically, he said Americans were too dumb and needed someone to help them. Spoken like a true communist. The State knows best.
I suspect we’ve got us a full blown implosion of the white house either happening or about to happen.
Ozero’s statement is now “you can keep your old policy IF IT HASN’T CHANGED...”. And we all know cancellation is “change”. Btw, AABEST, that is a beautiful graphic.
In keeping with Obama’s “I was not there when this happened” skill, his announcement this morning transferred the (NEW) problem right into the laps of every state’s insurance commish.
And mine (WA) did exactly as I predicted (Kriedler is a big time Dem and lib). Nor will he likewise be responsible for gutting ObamaCare. A good comrade.
But he is telling the citizens of WA state that we have no chance for lower costs health plans, if even for one year. How dare he!
Make all the country’s insurance plans open to the state and the free market will sort this out.
In the first place all he is doing is postponing the rape of those whose insurance will be cancelled for a year.
In the second place most any idiot can see this is a political move to get democrats elected next year.
In the third place it makes Obama look clueless, but then he is clueless so that’s not really a minus.
Obamacare should be scrapped in its entirety and all of those SEIU members claiming to be Navigators put back on welfare where they were before.
hilarious! did you make that? You should make it its own post.
Back up a minute....
Killing millions of unborn wasn’t enough American bloodshed for Americans to elect bloodshedding democrats.....
Don’t the poor insurance companies have any say in Barry dictating what they are and are not going to do?
So Obamugabe DID lie. He lied TODAY.
Adorable little popcorn guy ! :-)
Barack Obamacare, say it loud and say it proud!
This debacle today was caused by the selfishness of these democrats. Mary Landreiu is a pig and so are the others that keep torturing American citizens for their own personal gain.
Stand up and demand impeachment America.
It may be a slow motion train wreck now but I expect it will go faster with each passing day. Lies, once found out, are like that when there is no contrition, repentance or correction. There won’t be any recompense here, no admission, no contrition.
I expect this will all get dramatically worse and cost a lot of money for the taxpayer. We pay all the bills because there is no such thing as government money, it all has to be earned by the people in exchange for their work.
Before this is over, if it ever ends, it will get more confusing, more costly and some people will die of neglect because they have lost their insurance.
It will eventually get so muddled that the responsibility for it will be watered down. The sheeple will forget that obastard and his gang of thugs in the demorat party and the press will get off scott free.
I’m sorry to tell you though that as bad as all this will be there is worse to come. I believe that the dollar will well and truly collapse before this next three years ends. What is being done is criminal and fatal to the strength of the nation and I believe it is too late to correct it. Romney or anyone else might not have succeeded in cleaning the mess up and now I doubt that anyone can without starting over. There is just too much to fix. It has become like a house that is not worth remodeling instead of building a new one.
If it knocks the scales off the eyes of some lifelong Democrat voters. When people see loved ones, friends and neighbors experiencing real hardship, maybe.
I just went over to DemocraticUnderground and, as expected, it is a Dumpster Fire. They are screaming and crying at everyone and everything.
“How can you get blindsided by your own *&^#)@*$ legislation??”
Blaming insurance companies, the media, Republicans, Obama, and the only conclusion they have is that Single Payer is the right answer.
Here’s the issue:
Back in 2008, the banks got pulled into a room and they were forced to accept cash injections. There was no legislation, and all of this because the USG forced banks into making loans to people that couldn’t afford them.
The sop for banks for having to make those loans was the USG looking the other way when banks sold those loans to other banks, who in turn created securities out of them and sold those too.
People started making bets on how shaky the loans were getting beneath those securities. Bear Sterns went under, then Lehman Brothers was allowed to go. Bear was sold for a song to JPM. BofA bought Countrywide, who’s CEO was giving elected officials sweetheart loans.
No good deed goes unpunished, and for the since of the children, the parent buyers got hammered by the USG - JPM for $11B, and BofA something in the billions. Neither parent, nor their shareholders, did anything wrong, and at the time, the USG was in up to their bald spots and dyed hair in the mess.
Now the insurance companies are asked by the USG to call an audible and VIOLATE THE LAW in order to save Obama’s bacon.
Given what happened to BofA and JPM, what do you suppose is going to happen - especially since the folks getting begged are the same folks the USG shook down in 2010 for millions.
Even the suspensions currently in place now on various mandates are being done with ZERO legislative authority.
The rule of law is done.
O didn’t anticipate anything...he thought he could walk in and be Hugo Chavez
Just think, this wacko bird controls our nuclear arsenal.
