Health Exchanges - Imposing Obamacare

"The ACA cannot be implemented without an insurance exchange in each state. It's a go or it's a no-go. It's that simple." - As Robert Laszewski, president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, Sept 2012, HealthDay.

"The exchange is the foundation of health care...Without these exchanges we're really not going to reform anything." - Terry Gardiner, national policy director for the Small Business Majority in 2010.

NewObamacare Rigged to Fleece Taxpayers

Obamacare Rigged to Fleece Taxpayers

Never doubt the cleverness of Big Health. Obamacare does not redistribute wealth to the poor. Instead, the law’s various requirements redistribute wealth and wages to Obama’s partner in crime: large health plans. These corporations are then by law allowed to keep the cash and shortchange the care under “medical necessity” guidelines, demonstrating again that coverage is not care.

No June Obamacare Report – What’s the Administration Hiding?

ST. PAUL, Minn.—Since the end of Open Enrollment, the Obama Administration has been boasting 8 million enrollees in the government-run health care plan. Ironically, not long after claiming this feat, the Administration quietly announced it would no longer release monthly enrollment reports and provided no information on when future reports might be available.

IRS Closes Escape Route from Obamacare

The Obama administration wants no one to escape Obamacare’s wealth redistribution scheme. A new IRS regulation shuts down a major escape route, corrals the unwilling and tries to keep the truth about Obamacare under wraps.

ST. PAUL, Minn.—Just months before health plans are required to announce their premiums for 2015, the Obama Administration is offering them billions in taxpayer dollars to keep up the illusion that the Affordable Care Act is affordable.

Claiming 8 Million Enrollees, Obamacare Is Little More than Medicaid for the Middle Class

Now that the Obamacare enrollment deadline has come and gone, cheerleaders for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are calling the initiative a success, boasting 8 million signups since enrollment began in October.

But one patient advocacy group says Obamacare has succeeded only in creating a new Medicaid for the middle class.

Health Insurers “Closed for Business”

Health Insurers “Closed for Business”

Health insurers are shutting down for seven months. It’s virtually lights out. Unless you have a qualifying “life event,” you must wait until open enrollment begins Obamacare on November 15. A product once available year around for Americans to purchase no longer is. The entire industry now runs on the Obamacare schedule.

Is the Individual Mandate Gone?

Is the Individual Mandate Gone?
Why worry about the March 31 open enrollment deadline? There no longer appears to be a mandate to buy health insurance. The Obama administration recently added a 14th hardship exemption that gives anyone and everyone an “out” -- without need of documentation to prove your case. It’s a “catch-all” exemption, as reported by BusinessWeek.
