Skip to comments.Obama Slaps States That Don't Comply With Obamacare
Posted on 12/01/2012 12:26:17 PM PST by Olog-hai
Residents of states that refuse to set up health insurance exchanges under Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.
Insurance companies will be charged 3.5 percent of any premiums they sell through the federal exchanges, the department announced Friday. And insurers are likely to pass that surcharge on to clients, leaading to higher premiums.
The only states to be affected are those that refuse to set up their own exchanges because of opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. They are almost certain to be those under Republican control. In those states, HHS will set up the exchanges.

Pass the pipe please!
The next election will give you 33 seats you may be able to replace with people who would convict.
Even if you won all 33 seats..
that leaves 67 remaining...
Your not going to remove this POS through impeachment.
I might even go as far as to say there is no legal way anyone is willing to take to remove this POS. We can only hope his maker calls him home (through natural causes of course)
to be blunt.. that worthless f#%@ should just switch parties and be done with it. Or better yet. retire. Now.
You sound like an expert.
Consider this if you would: It is my understanding that the first few years if you decline to purchase health insurance then you pay a penalty of about $95.00 a year, but you receive no health insurance coverage.
I believe that somehow the “47%” (the Illegals, Treyvons & Co.) will pay nothing yet still receive health insurance coverage. (Remember Nancy Pelosi nearly swooning over the thought of all the Americans who could “become artists, musicians!” etc.?)
So, those of us expected to actually pull this barge loaded with deadbeats, across rocks, can go mini-Galt by becoming part of the 47% in order to bring the whole thing down.
And won’t that happen if the premiums that working people are paying aren’t covering expenses—like General Motors, the health care company that builds a few battery powered cars nobody wants?
It wouldn’t take very long at all, would it, factoring in as well the bloated bureaucracy that will be required to administer this Frankenstein’s monster?
This is completely Un-American, I wonder if Rush will now say it’s time to panic?
Alright adjusted myself to be able to live at 47% levels.
I am so done pulling the wagon.
I’m not getting in it. I’ll just walk along side and point and laugh at them.
This country is in full tilt. “Laws” are nothing but dictates from a White House and its agencies that answer to no one. (Read about Elena Kagan’s philosophy for more on that) We are America in name only. Always thought the end would be a full nuclear exchange, not some third world piece of crap taking over the White House.
Even if we own it (our home, property, money, 401k,etc.), eventually they will steal it from us through taxation and crazy fees. We will OWN nothing—the government will own all. This will not be just, but to them it will be “fair.”
..................Someone get some dirt on this bastard................
There’s all kinds of dirt on the POS, all we need is someone with influence to grow a pair!
he really wants chaos and civil war in this country.
The house needs to cut off funding for:
The UN and any support of UN activities in the US
no need to panic. You need to do the other P word. Prepare.
Money will be worthless. Hard assets and lead will be used to trade (or take) goods.
Get away from the inner cities.
Find means of communication that do not rely on the grid. (ham radio, shortwave, CB)
If Obama manages to bring down america there will be blood spilled. I am already 40 miles from the inner city. my GTFOOD spot is another 100 and takes a 4 wheel drive to get to. If it gets really bad I’m off to the mountains where my mother-in-law lives with a true mountain man. The path to them is all red states once I leave my blue one.
I use to think preppers where nuts. Now.. Not so much ;)
You get this by electing a Dictator.
Will insurance companies have the guts to operate in States which resist Obamacare and which resist the exchanges of any type?
Yes, I do agree that Obamacare will collapse, the problem is that we must be ready to blame that collapse on Obama and the Democrats.
We are in a bad spot, perhaps, since we do not want to cooperate, and therefore we will be blamed for the collapse.
We need extensive documentation in the blue, Obamacare State Exchange States that this is not working the way it was advertised, and we need “push back” media and leaders to make that case.
Yes, I think there are countless ways to resist Obamacare, and we should avoid funding it at every opportunity, which will hasten reform of health care reform.
..........................Completely changing a huge industry on whims of the Administration will be like creating workable prototype automobiles for the entire nation without knowing how automobiles are actually designed, manufactured, financed, marketed, or repaired.....................
Oh, aren’t we already doing that with Fiskers that self immolate, Volts that a stacked up like firewood in lots all around the country, as the union Volt workers play poker in the cafeteria all day?
How many right here on FR said there is no difference between Romney and Obama? I have contempt for everyone who refused to lift a finger to stop this mad man.
It is time for our government to go.
Somebody needs to give Obozo a 3rd eyeball...
