Administration Fears Part Of Health Care System So Flawed It Could Bankrupt Insurance Companies
Fox News ^ | 1/22/14 | Jim Angle

While the administration publicly expresses full confidence in its health care law, privately it fears one part of the system is so flawed it could bankrupt insurance companies and cripple ObamaCare itself.

"Week after week, month after month," says John Goodman of the National Center for Policy Analysis, "the Obama administration kept telling us everything's working fine, there's no problem and then they turn on a dime and fire their contractor."

To justify a no-bid contract with Accenture after firing CGI as the lead contractor, the administration released documents from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services that offered a rare glimpse of its worst fears, saying the problems with the website puts "the entire health insurance industry at risk" ... "potentially leading to their default and disrupting continued services and coverage to consumers."

Then it went even further, saying if the problems were not fixed by mid-March, "they will result in financial harm to the government."

It even added that without the fixes "the entire health care reform program is jeopardized."

In spite of the "urgent" need officials cited to keep the system from collapsing, the White House spokesman said he knew nothing about it.

It was their plan all along.

Death, and not healthcare, is coming for
non-EXEMPT American families, from Coast to Coast.
It has already begun for too many.

He was remarkably candid about simply BANKRUPTYING big coal, instead of using the law.

It is silly not to suspect this is also the plan with insurance companies.

PART OF THE PLAN.

Notice the way he’s extravagantly blase about all this?

HE EXPECTED THIS.

13 seconds, YouTube:

“You can build a coal plan, but we’ll simply BANKRUPT them...”

I dont think the Dems from red states even care at this point..can the law even be repealed? As long as King Obama is in power no matter what the law is still the law so to him, he already has what he wants..he will bankrupt the insurance industry just like all progressives want..so they can have the single payer system they have always wanted

Well, it’s certainly a good thing you built a TARP bailout into the law.

I wonder, “will you renege and litigate your way out of that which the law obligates the government or will Eric Holder contrive a series of novel prosecutions for the band to play a hommage to as the ship rolls and finally sinks.

... so they can have the single payer system they have always wanted ...

Single payer will NEVER pass Congress - at least for 20 years, if EVER. Not after THIS POS legislation. If they try it, those who vote for it can kiss their careers goodbye ...

I’m sure that hospitals and providers will be very happy to know that their patients are “covered” by soon to be bankrupt insurance companies. Just think how long it will take for claims to be paid, and how many procedures will be denied.
When payments slow, and procedures are denied, layoffs will ensue, and patients will need to put money up front.

You are so right! The voters are dumb, but they are not stupid, I hope!

“Obama will sign it by executive order..I guarantee it..and even if he can’t legally he will do it anyway”

Then Boehner and Co. will fund it. After wiping some tears, I suppose...

The insurance companies got in bed with Barry. This is the result.

He destroys everything he touches.

Yes, the proverbial "crisis," that can only be fixed by socialized medicine. To the surprise of no one here.

Obamacare is what Obama, i.e., the "Secretary," says it is. If he says it is single-payer, it will be.

Who will oppose him?

Ha.
Insurance is an obstacle on the path to the single payer system the communists want to impose on the American people.

It is not narrative but a picture from Obamacare advertising for enrollees.
