When this is all over they will be hunting dims with dogs - open season with no bag limit.
“Dont the poor insurance companies have any say in Barry dictating what they are and are not going to do?”
That is the kicker - they don’t have to do anything he says.
I would love to be a fly on the wall with Obama and his advisers.
<....”Its a slow motion train-wreck. Every step Odumbo takes gets him further into the mire”....>
His agenda for single payer is working just fine.....when all is unsaid by congress, and Obama continues with his plan that this indeed fails....he and the Dims will say they tried but the Republicans and Insurance companies did them in leaving them with no other alternative but to go to single payer...
Nope...when this is all over the Dims will be hero’s for rescuing us from the Insurance Companies by taking us all under single payer.....all these fix’s will not work....and these scenes playing out in the news were well anticipated by this administration. In the end it will mean no skin off their noses at all.
Can i get off this broken ride now?
This ruling that WA State residents will not be allowed to keep their insurance is not a rebuke of Obama, but statement of support.
WA State was way ahead of the feds on Obamacare. Gregoire shoved through the set up of the state exchanges and other regulations before the Supreme Court even ruled on the constitutionality of the law. She did it because the State Attorney General had signed onto the law suit against Obamacare without her permission.
What the insurance commissioner is saying is that with or without the feds, WA is going forward with the plans for socialized medicine.
The low information voter predominate. They are easy to control and manipulate. I see this a threat to our Republic, Isn't it any wonder that the politicians think they can do whatever they want?
People get the government they deserve. Obama is the result.
The problem is an electorate who would vote for him. Twice.
And the idiots in the Boeing union voted 67% not to ratify their contract.
I think Americans are doing something by doing nothing. No one is signing up.
People, really, go to the article and read exactly why he won’t let people keep these policies. He’s a diehard lib who refuses to budge from the position that everyone whose policy was canceled will get a better deal on the exchanges. He wants to force them to get an Obamacare policy “for their own good” :)
With friends like these, Obama doesn’t need enemies!
Please to not overfeed animals. Tank you.
It is literally impossible to do what Obama suggested.
WTF is he doing?
After this debacle, who would be stupid enough to EVER trust "the government" about ANYTHING healthcare related.
I actually think this is exhibit A in why single payer would be even more of a bust.
The democrats would run as fast as they could away from it.
I do pray daily for people who have been caught in a real bad way in this. Hoping that some way can be found to continue treatment. I am not saying everything is peachy in WA, believe me, just a matter of relatively so compared to some other states.
Even if the insurance commissioner had allowed the “restart” to go ahead, there doesn’t seem to be any way realistically that insurance companies could reinstate policies in anything near that time frame. Plus their business models and risk pools would be screwed up beyond comprehension.
So it is going to take congressional action to force this issue to happen! So the vote tomorrow in the House is important.
I’m in Washington state and it seems that our leftist government is set on doing anything that would be good for the public or for the economy.
And I am appalled at those dumb Boeing machinists not taking their contract deal.
But is it better overall, considering the increase in premiums and higher deductibles, and paying extra for coverage you not need nor want.
Yes, the mantra from dems up for re-election will be “we are working hard to get your old plans back, but the republicans are the party of NO”
We all knew he picked Biden because old Joe is a moron. Insurance against impeachment.
Exodus from Washington!
Sort-of welcome back to America, Jane. What’s the reaction to this locally?
I can just hear the obamabots now...
But King Canute ordered the tides to stop!
Actually the obamabots will be saying,
“Obama ordered the tides to stop and they would have
except for those nasty republicans stamping their
feet and making waves!”
Obama can’t simply decree outside the confines of legislation...he tried for a while... he really did....but it’s come home to roost. he wrote a law, it doesn’t work, and he wants to fix it sans ...congress...er...i mean, “ reality.”
And most importantly, their two housewifey dem senators are NOT up for re-election in 2014, no?
Lots of questions about this and that. So, how’re you doing??
As a national spokesman for the “National Assocation of Rocks”, I “represent” that remark comparing us to 2/3rds of the American people.
We are strong, solid, enduring. People build long-lasting things with us including homes, buildings, BBQ pits. The low-educated Americans burn down their homes when building a BBQ pit.
We are old but still here, unlike the temporary stupidity of too many Americans.
We are the weapon of a David against a Goliath. Even in Afghanistan and Vietnam, American soldiers used rocks against the enemy, successfully. Ever throw a Democrat against a commie or a jihadist? Would never hit the target. Besides, you saw how Obama threw a baseball. Embarrassing.
Rocks are beautiful works of nature. Democrat/liberal/marxists are “zombie works” of a demented American Left.
Finally, people collect rocks, not Democrats or the low-educated blindly obedient voters.
Please use another item to compare the 2/3rds of American fools that you are talking about. Perhaps Sea Slugs or fans of Alec Baldwin.
And I’ll bet Bill Gates gets the best health coverage of all in the State of Washington! He could and probably has bought his own doctors, hospital room, etc., etc., and enough to buy a fully staffed modern hospital for just himself and his family.
However, the little guy now has to pay a hell of a lot more for that Best Coverage there, Mr. Kreidler.
Now for some, the choice is going to be pay the mortgage or pay for health coverage, but not both.
Can’t complain much, was accepted by Medicaid recently (I’m thankful but don’t like taking from the public trough) because jobs are scarce and I don’t have insurance. At least it means I’ll be able to start seeing doctors and be able to get my health to where it should be. I don’t mean to complain, but endocrine problems make me feel like an old man, and that’s no good when you’re only 28.
Other than that, finished Matt’s (Travis McGee) first book last night, and while I enjoyed it, the ending made me sad. He’s a good writer, and you could probably find his books around for a decent price, if you don’t mind points in the book that would make your blood boil. But if you’ve already read Unintended Consequences, then you’ve experienced something like it already.
‘scuse, me. this is waaaay more
i really get upset when anyone
minimalizes the damage these
people are doing...
The states and insurance companies won't/can't comply--then wallah! He now has someone to blame. That is what this all about.
Looks like they chose to follow the law.
I disagree. He can do any thing he wants for as long as he wants. And he has and will so continue. Until someone stops him. And I don't see any politician or judge with hair to do that so far.
When Dear Leader Barack is in a Porta-Potty, he's pretty much the smartest guy in the room...
The stuff below him is smarter...
People don't like losing their doctor either. The left is a big evil lie.
And Ill bet Bill Gates gets the best health coverage of all in the State of Washington! He could and probably has bought his own doctors, hospital room, etc., etc., and enough to buy a fully staffed modern hospital for just himself and his family.
he pays CASH
According to ObamaCare, a price increase is also “change.”
So, if your “restored” policy has gone up in price since you last paid, technically, the restored policy should be illegal.
Obama has exempted dozens of union health plans from the price rule.
Re: “Those dumb Boeing machinists not taking their contract deal.”
It’s worse than that.
A lot of people in the state don’t realize that the Legislature is (was) in special session.
They just voted around $2 billion in tax breaks and technical education benefits for the aviation industry, most of it, obviously, going to Boeing.
The Union voted AFTER the tax breaks passed.
I’ll guess they keep voting “NO” until Boeing agrees to put most of its tax break into union paychecks.
Remember, there are very sick people in treatment who might not be insured on January one, then what??
Yeah....and they have a LOT of angry relatives and friends.
Buy stock in companies making pitchforks, scythes, rope and tar.
Yes I did make it.
Use it however you see fit. I’m not a copyright kind of guy.
It is amazing how liberals pass legislation to try and stop the very natural consequences of their idiotic laws. They are perpetually attempting to trick the laws of economics.
Just a reference for all of you. This is a list of R submitted amendments that the D’s rejected regarding the ACA.
