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.

It requires every bit of self control now to not wish something far worse on that bastard. I'll just leave it at that.
Romney wanted to repeal and replace Obamacare. Romneycare might have even been worse.
I think he might have gotten more votes if he had left out the replace threat.
Wouldn’t have mattered. Obama had more than enough fools to vote for him. Then there was voter fraud.
Face it One way or the other he was going to be re-elected. And the Republican Party conspired in that scheme by forcing another liberal candidate on us.
Bad but maybe not that bad.
If we fall off the cliff, go here to see what my CPA told us.
For better or worse I have this CPA friend, and Enrolled Agent and they are freaking. I'll save you the 411 as to what I have learned over the last month, it is scary, the IRS and these tax pros are running out of time to do their job everyday Obama drags this out.
Worse is my discussions with people in business and those who interact with small businessmen every day.
I have not heard a good word for post 12/31/12
Everyone is prepping for Obamacare, i.e. reducing staff to 28 hrs or dumping people into the exchanges, hanging onto cash, not going foward with capital projects, closing down businesses or selling to competitors because they are no longer going forward organizations and they are wiped out trying to eek out a living the last 4 years.
MY guess Jan, thru April with this business stuff and Taxamageddon might finally wake people up.
BTW Turk, their is a man in a major domo outfit in the Basketball Court and he is Farting :-)....
TARGET THE MEDIA..TARGET THE MEDIA
The fruitcakes here on FR have for months tried to make "the establishment" out to be the bogeyman but it's all a myth.
I had NO pressure on me to support anyone I didn't want to in the primary.
Now, you want to blame this on "the establishment". I have no idea if you supported Romney or Obama and I don't care but for ANYONE who knew who Obama was and they refused to stop him, I have nothing but contempt for each and everyone of you.
Maybe you want to help pay my crying daughter's health insurance premiums.
For ANYONE who said there is no difference between Romney and Obama, I say you are an idiot. Thanks a lot for the havoc you have helped create in our once great nation.
The ultimage “going galt” is forgetting something in April.

To think Roberts had the chance to bury this monstrosity.
I was a member of a flight attendant’s union.
I cannot tell you how many times I personally heard - or heard happened to other flight attendants - when questioning something in our contract that was vague, “I know that is what it says but that is not what it means.”
The ambiguousness is always quite intentional and will never be ruled in your favor.
I'm so sick of these people.
“he could take live kittens/puppies and toss them into boiling hot water on live TV..........all you would hear about it is***crickets***”
One of Jimmy Carter’s secret service men wrote a book and detailed how JC went after a small dog with a bow saw because the hungry puppy dared to eat JC’s cat’s food.
And yet, when President George W. Bush was driving on his farm- ON HIS OWN PRIVATE PROPERTY- with his seatbelt off, that stayed in the headlines for days.
>>> 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.
I’m not sure if you are aware of this or not, but this election was not about either of them.
The election was about the 47% keeping their free stuff.
The 47% were more motivated to vote to keep their stuff than the 51% were about keeping their earned stuff.
Combined with the obvious voter fraud on a scale we have never seen before, this election was over before it started.
We are great producers... Great innovators... and Great complainers...
But we suck at enforcing the law that the democrats consistently thwart.
What should we expect to happen when it comes time for a “fair election”?
Not even close. Fiskers and Volts are built by auto engineers and manufacturers.
Obamacare is going to be built by bureaucrats.
