Kathleen Sebelius Concedes More May Lose Healthcare
breitbart.com ^ | 12/11/13 | Tony Lee

Posted on 12/11/2013 2:59:45 PM PST by ColdOne

On Wednesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius conceded that when the one-year exemption for businesses with more than 50 employees expires next year, even more Americans may lose health insurance plans which they were promised they could keep.

Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA), the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, asked Sebelius if some "small group plans" could be canceled, as individual plans have been, because "they do not comply with the ACA."

"Yes, sir," Sebelius replied.

We were told yesterday our health insurance was getting cancelled because it didn’t meet the requirements of the ACA. They are going to offer some kind of supplement to help pay the deductibles but you have to go to healthcare.gov to get regular insurance. I’m a new employee so I was never signed up in the first place but the folks who have been around a while weren’t too happy.

Just heard she is calling for an investigation into her own developed website and her involvement in obamacare top to bottom.

The trickery never quits, if it’s under investigation it stops any further questions by anyone to everyone in the regime, including the president.

“Sorry I can’t answer that, until the investigation is concluded”

“Sorry I can’t give you those documents, they are in the hands of the investigators” etc...etc.

That should hold them over until after 2014.

Can’t you get it from ehealth.com if you don’t qualify for a subsidy?

And just wait till they start issuing orders to the doctors to match client with the care required....and prescriptions....don't forget all those complex prescription orders.

I see not just amputations on the wrong limb....but on the wrong patient.

Some examples from the Gobmint run NHS in UK...

and don't expect quick response for a broken arm:

And so you have an acute appendix....?

Mark Wattson, 35, from Swindon may have been the victim of botched surgery after he had to have his appendix removed twice

To his shock, surgeons from the same team told him that not only was his appendix still inside him, but it had ruptured - a potentially fatal complication.

In a second operation it was finally removed, leaving Mr Wattson fearing another organ might have been taken out during the first procedure.

The blunder has left Mr Wattson jobless, as bosses at the shop where he worked did not believe his story and sacked him.

130,000 elderly patients killed every year by ‘death pathway’, claims leading UK doctor

by Thaddeus Baklinski Thu Jun 21, 2012 10:02 EST Tags: euthanasia, patrick pullicino, uk

LONDON, June 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An eminent British doctor told a meeting of the Royal Society of Medicine in London that every year 130,000 elderly patients that die while under the care of the National Health Service (NHS) have been effectively euthanized by being put on the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), a protocol for care of the terminally ill that he described as a “death pathway.”

SOME Democrats are gonna lose their jobs.

If you’re at 138% of the federal poverty threshold, you automatically qualify for Medicaid.

At 400% of it, up to a certain income level, you get a federal subsidy to help with the costs of an ACA-compliant private health insurance policy/plan.

Above that, you’re on your own. Obamacare’s pain doesn’t stop there.

“That should hold them over until after 2014.”

No...it won’t. Everyone knows that trick.

Even if they had the money, the Republicans can’t possibly purchase enough air time to broadcast all of the delicious sound bites that the Democrats and their fellow travelers have provided over these past five years. The good news is, that’s really all they have to do in their ads. Very little production expense.

This new one - Dr. Doom’s wife demanding an investigation into how the project under her responsibility went so wrong - is a true classic.

Remember the screeching, 30-point font stories back in the Hillarycare days about 40-50 Americans have no insurance AND WE GOTTA DO SOMETHING?

Nice to see the feaerless GOP Reps. tip toeing through the tulips on kenyancare again. These losers couldn’t score in Paris on liberation day.

As I view it, it’s a last ditch effort of the regime to stop the questioning. It would also give the president an out when and if he holds another press conference.

It would also help, in a small degree, democrats running for reelection and holding town hall meetings, they can dodge questions related to anything about 0care. Granted, it’s clearly a weak attempt to disassociate themselves from a fraudulent and disasterous program but it’s all they have to prevent outright lying.

There is also the question about the House Oversight hearings, how can they conduct productive hearing when the people brought in front of the committee are, essentially, immune to answering any questions regarding 0Care?

Of course, you are right that everyone knows it’s a trick but desperate people will attempt desperate measures.

I guess someone held the “Surgery for Dummies” upside down and Haji almost removed it before attempting the removal from the other side.

I believe that applies only to states that set up their own exchanges.
