Will ObamaCare be Reversed? (Part 1)


Mike Lee: Latest Obamacare delay is 'lawless' --- 'he is not an emperor'

President Obama's latest delay of the employer mandate is yet another "lawless" change to Obamacare, according to Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who said Attorney General Eric Holder still hasn't provided the legal basis for the last delay.
"[Obama] has no authority to do that," Lee told the Washington Examiner after his speech on higher education reform at the Heritage Foundation. "He's acting outside of what the law authorizes him to do and this has got to stop. At some point the president of the United States has to recognize that we are a nation that operates under a system of laws. He is not an emperor. He is not a super-legislature. And he doesn't have the power to just trump what Congress does."
Earlier Monday, Obama's team announced "that it would give midsized employers until 2016 to provide health insurance for their workers, delaying another key provision of the Affordable Care Act," per Washington Examiner reporter Brian Hughes.
Holder struggled to identify the basis for President Obama's authority to flout Obamacare's implementation schedule when Lee pressed him on the subject during a recent Senate hearing.
"I've not had a chance to look at, you know, for some time, exactly what the analysis was there, so I'm not sure that I would be able to put it in what category," Holder told Lee on Jan. 29 when asked to ground the original delay of the employer law in a standard three-part test for such unilateral actions by the executive branch.
Lee asked Holder to write him an explanation of the legal analysis that the Justice Department used to justify delaying the employer mandate, which was originally supposed to take effect on Jan. 1, 2014. The attorney general has not yet done so.
The Utah Republican said Obama is acting on the weakest of constitutional grounds. "The law says x, and he is trying to do not x, but y," Lee told the Examiner.
Exclusive: College counselors, substitute teachers across Illinois seeing pay slashed in half due to Obamacare by Mike Adams
Monday, January 27, 2014

(NaturalNews) As the economic fallout of Obamacare continues to devastate U.S. workers, Natural News has learned that a new class of victims is now feeling the wake: college counselors and substitute teachers across the state of Illinois are seeing their wages slashed as once-full-time jobs are being retitled and cut to 28 hours per week to comply with Obamacare.
"I will be making [the income] I made 11 years ago," one school counselor told Natural News. "Thanks Obamacare and the state of Illinois!"
College counselors seeing pay cut in half
College administrators are, of course, caught between the impossibility of paying the Obamacare-mandated health insurance fees for full-time employees and the devastating impact of slashing hours and pay for seasoned counselors. They have chosen to "retitle" counseling jobs and cut the pay in half.
The upshot is that college students will now receive virtually no meaningful counseling because many counselors are so economically devastated by the pay cut, they are seeking employment elsewhere.
But employment for college counselors is hard to come by, and this is part of what's contributing to the new wave of
middle class Americans on food stamps -- a frightening sign of just how quickly socialist economic policies can devastate a nation and send tens of millions of workers into economic dependency.
Substitute teachers being rotated to avoid a full work week

Illinois colleges and school districts are also implementing bizarre new work hour limits on substitute teachers, Natural News has learned. In many schools, substitute teachers are now barred from working a full work week because that would obligate the school to cover their health insurance costs as mandated by Obamacare.
The result is that substitute teachers are now only hired for four days a week, and a different substitute stands in the fifth day. This "musical chairs" of teachers creates a disconnect in the classroom and dramatically diminishes the quality and continuity of substitute teaching for children. This is just one of the many ways in which President Obama's milestone legislation is destroying America one child at a time. (And one teacher at a time, too...)
America headed for economic devastation, runaway disease pandemic and a collapsing education system
Policies like Obamacare are pushing America to the brink of collapse, creating widespread economic destruction and job losses running in the tens of millions. At the same time, the costs of all this have no real reward as rates of chronic degenerative disease continue to rise with no end in sight.
Obamacare does not create health; it merely creates financial rewards for the continuation of disease while forcing American workers to empty their pockets at the altar of for-profit medicine.
Insurance companies, hospitals, drug companies and bureaucrats are making record profits while the American people suffer with unemployment, cancer, diabetes and an inflationary money supply that robs them of their hard-earned financial gains with each passing day.
Drug companies and vaccine manufacturers prey upon the sick and the weak while government-funded institutions like the NIH, FDA and USDA continue their delusional policies which intentionally avoid any validation of the real causes of disease and poor health: junk foods, toxic chemicals, heavy metals, toxic prescription medications, toxic fluoride in the water supply and nutritionally-depleted foods. The government that forces you -- essentially at gunpoint -- to buy the most expensive health insurance scheme in the world is also the same government that refuses to ban aspartame, sodium nitrite, MSG or even toxic heavy metals in the food supply. They want you to be sick. It's the best way to keep you down.
The end game is fast approaching. America will soon be relegated to a nation of diseased, dumbed-down, unemployed, chemically-intoxicated government dependants who are incapable of taking back their nation from the cabal of criminals in Washington who have maliciously doomed them all.
Obamacare is a Bad Deal for the Young - Cheaper to be Uninsured, Study Shows
The success of Obamacare largely rests on the shoulders of the estimated 2.7 million “young invincibles” whose premiums are needed to subsidize healthcare costs for others. People in the 18 – 35 age group are needed to create a balanced risk pool.


Now a study shows that coverage through the ACA is just not a good deal for those young adults.
The study, conducted by
The American Action Forum, concluded that for 86% of that demographic, ACA coverage is just not worth it:
The ACA’s perverse economic incentives are well documented. The law makes health insurance more expensive for many young adults, while at the same time making the decision to go without health coverage exponentially less risky than it previously was. It is impossible to predict how many young adults will ultimately enroll in coverage, but it is clear that many young adult enrollees will be worse off financially if they decide to purchase health insurance.

Health “care” coverage premium costs increased for both males and females in that age bracket:
A 30 year old male can expect premiums for his least costly insurance option to increase on average 260 percent in 2014,while a 30 year old female will see an average increase of 193 percent.
The study sought to find out whether enrolling in Obamacare or remaining uninsured was the most “financially advantageous” for the young invincibles.
Here’s what was discovered:
After accounting for subsidies and cost-sharing, 6 out of 7 uninsured, young adult households will find it financially advantageous to forgo health coverage, and instead pay the mandate penalty and cover their own health care costs. As the penalty increases, that number will drop from 86 percent in 2014 to 71 percent in 2015 and 62 percent in 2016, before ticking back up to 66 percent in 2019. In two additional analyses, using alternate assumptions explained in further detail below, the exact percentages vary, but the overall finding is constant; the majority of uninsured young adults will benefit financially from opting out of coverage in 2014.
Even after the mandate penalty is fully implemented, a majority of young adult households will find that it is financially advantageous for them to forgo health insurance, pay the mandate penalty, and personally cover their own health care expenses. Even under our third, and most conservative, scenario we still find that in 2019, 41 percent of young adult households will be financially incentivized to forgo health insurance.
Through its insurance market reforms and overly prescriptive benefit design, the ACA makes the decision to purchase health insurance more costly than it previously was for the vast majority of young adults, while at the same time significantly reducing the risks associated with the decision to go without coverage. Whether young adults make the decision to purchase health insurance will depend on many factors, but the perverse economics of the ACA discourages young adults from joining the health insurance system.
The study’s co-author Chris Holt told The Daily Caller:
“We’re talking about a population of people who chose to go without insurance when it was much more dangerous to be without insurance and when insurance actually cost less.
So the incentives have changed so that these folks now have less risk in remaining uninsured while the cost of getting insurance is even higher.”
Looks like the Obama administration wasted all that money they spent on the endearing Pajama Boy ads and those oh-so-clever racy ads featuring young folks talking about free birth control and boozing it up. Signing up for the Obamacare Ponzi scheme just isn’t worth it to them.

Downgraded: Insurance Companies Taste Wrath of ObamaCare

The beginning of the downward spiral
By Arnold Ahlert
Another day, another dose of bad news for ObamaCare. On Thursday, Moody’s Investor Service announced it was downgrading its outlook for America’s healthcare insurance sector from “stable” to “negative,” due to ObamaCare.
“While all of these issues had been on our radar screen as we approached 2014, a new development and a key factor for the change in outlook is the unstable and evolving regulatory environment under which the sector is operating,” Moody’s said. “Notably, new regulations and presidential announcements over the last several months with respect to the ACA have imposed operational changes well after product and pricing decisions had been finalized.”
Moody’s is being polite. It is no secret that President Obama has made unilateral and constitutionally suspect decisions to postpone or alter major sections of the law. His ham-fisted attempts to mitigate the political damage attending the disastrous website rollout, and his oft-repeated lie that Americans could keep their insurance policies and doctors, has wreaked havoc on insurers struggling to keep up with the massive fiscal adjustments those decisions engendered.
Moody’s also cited the the lack of enrollment by younger, healthier Americans needed to keep the healthcare plan fiscally viable as another reason for the downgrade. “Uncertainty over the demographics of those enrolling in individual products through the exchanges is a key factor in Moody’s outlook change,” the ratings agency added.
Moody’s must be referring to uncertainty going forward, because it’s not uncertain as to what the demographic totals are so far. On January 13, the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) announced that only 24 percent of Americans signing up for ObamaCare were part of the coveted youth demographic. That’s well below the 39 percent the White House contended was necessary for the law to work. They also revealed that as of Dec. 28, the total number of signups for ObamaCare had reached 2.2 million, well below the 3.3 million they had targeted to sign up by that time.
And that’s signups. At a House hearing on Jan. 16, Centers for Medicaid & Medicare (CMS)
official Gary Cohen, the director of Medicare’s Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, admitted the administration has no clue how many people have actually paid for their premiums. “We don’t know at this point how many people have actually paid for coverage?” asked Congressman Greg Harper (R-MS) during the hearing. “That’s right,” replied Cohen. Cohen also admitted something far more ominous. “The automated process for payments is still being built, but we have a process in place that is working and payments will be going out next week,” he said.

The “automated process for payments,” also referred to as the “back end” of the ObamaCare website, is the most critical component of the system because it matches peoples’ policies and their subsidies with their insurance carriers. Yet back in November, Henry Chao, the deputy chief information officer for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, conceded to Congress that 30-40 percent of the back end still needed to be built. “We still have to build the payment systems to make payments to issuers in January,” Chao said.

As Fox News reveals, the effort is hardly proceeding as planned. They note that while the administration remains upbeat in public, “privately it fears one part of the system is so flawed it could bankrupt insurance companies and cripple ObamaCare itself.”
That part of the system is the back end.
The administration revealed the truth when it fired CGI as the lead contractor, and replaced it with Accenture. Because it gave Accenture a no-bid contract, they had to justify it by releasing documents from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Those documents revealed that 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.” Even worse, they noted that if the problems weren’t fixed by mid-March “they will result in financial harm to the government,” and that, absent those fixes, “the entire health care reform program is jeopardized.”
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius insisted that everything would work out fine in the end, despite the reality that insurers are currently enduring massive amounts of confusion and uncertainty regarding who is signed up and what subsidies, if any, they are entitled to. “I mean we will get them paid,” she said. “There is no question about that, so we are on track.”
That would be the same Kathleen Sebelius who unilaterally changed the signup deadline for ObamaCare from Dec. 23 to Dec. 31, and “strongly encouraged” insurance companies to treat out-of-network providers as in-network and refill prescriptions for medication covered by previous plans until ObamaCare could catch up with reality. Thus, her definition of “on track” is suspect at best.
And as of now, much like the administration was forced to do to determine whether Americans were eligible for subsidies, they will have to rely on the honor system to determine how much they will owe insurers. Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center illuminated what that means from the insurers’ point of view. “Here’s who we think we have, and here’s the subsidy we think they’re owed,” he explains. “Please send us a check from the treasury.”
Treasury is a polite way of saying the American taxpayers, whose involvement in underwriting ObamaCare could turn out to be far more expansive than they currently imagine. That’s because if the insurance companies do run into financial trouble, ObamaCare puts the taxpayers on the hook to bail them out until 2017. As Charles Krauthammer reveals, Section 1341 of the bill, the “reinsurance fund,” collects $63 from each insurer and self-insuring employer, who will undoubtedly pass that cost on to the consumer. That raises approximately $20 billion over three years to cover insurers’ potential losses. In addition, Section 1342, the “risk corridor,” has taxpayers underwriting up to 80 percent of insurance company losses.
As bad as that is, it gets worse. As Robert Laszewski, a prominent consultant to health insurance companies explains, because they are insulated from losses, they will hold their rates down for one more year, no matter how bad a beating they take. “I expect that the health insurance industry will be content to give the Obama administration one more chance to reboot Obamacare in the fall of 2014, when the 2015 open enrollment takes place,” he writes.
In other words, because the insurance companies don’t have to worry about losing money, they’ll hold rates down—no doubt by sheer coincidence—until after the 2014 election.
“But that is all the patience I see the industry having,” Laszewski continues. “While they will continue to be protected from losses in 2016, two years will be enough patience for them and they will be eager to at least begin to transition their rates to the proper level in 2016 rather than face a huge adjustment in 2017 when the reinsurance program ends.” That will undoubtedly be huge adjustment upward in insurance rates.
His conclusion? “What consumers/voters will be thinking about Obamacare come November 2014 is still to be determined. But insurers won’t be losing a lot of sleep over it.”
So why is Moody’s losing sleep? Why a downgrade now if taxpayers are being forced to bailout insurance companies until 2017? Bloomberg News columnist Megan McArdle offers a clue. “The law still lacks the political legitimacy to survive in the long term,” she writes. “And in a bid to increase that legitimacy, the administration has set two very dangerous precedents: It has convinced voters that no unpopular provisions should ever be allowed to take effect, and it has asserted an executive right to rewrite the law, which Republicans can just as easily use to unravel this tangled web altogether.”
With regard to Republicans, Krauthammer has already suggested as much, saying the GOP should pass “The No Bailout for Insurance Companies Act of 2014” and tie it, and nothing else, to the debt ceiling debate. “Dare the president to stand up and say: ‘I’m willing to let the country default in order to preserve a massive bailout for insurance companies,’” he writes. He foresees the gambit as a win-win for Republicans. “Let the Senate Democrats decide: Support the bailout and lose the Senate. Or oppose the bailout and bury Obamacare.”
In December, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew reminded Congress that the debt limit needs to be raised. It has been suspended until Feb. 7 as part of the deal that re-opened the government following the shutdown. He urged lawmakers to raise it before that date and “certainly before late February.”
Michael Steel, spokesman for House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), insisted that “a ‘clean’ debt limit increase simply won’t pass in the House.” Looks like Krauthammer is onto something. Moody’s may be as well. Both may have come to the same conclusion: an “unstable and evolving regulatory environment” can cut both ways.

The Fraud and Deceit of Obamacare

By Frosty Wooldridge
January 9, 2014
Last month, Mr. Barack Obama reported to the press that he “fumbled the ball” in connection with his touted “Obamacare” program set in motion with a delinquent website that failed from “day one.”
What Obama hailed as the cornerstone of his “Hope and Change” administration, now enjoys a new rendition as “Obama’s blunderstone.”
Whether we look at the crimes of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder with his “Fast and Furious” gun-running to Mexico or to Obama’s incompetence in responding to the definite Islamic threat to Ambassador Stevens at the Benghazi consulate in Libya, or former Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano’s total incompetence and fraudulence in not enforcing America’s borders or immigration employment laws internally—American citizens see our country being dismantled by malfeasance, corruption and ineffectiveness.
Five years ago Obama swore on a Bible to uphold our U.S. Constitution, yet he usurps it at every juncture. He’s got eight, count them, eight (8) Islamic advisors in the White House consulting him to further their agenda and not America’s. Every advisor possesses one mission: to further Islam in America and around the world.
Obama started with 36 million Americans subsisting on food stamps, but today, 2014, he grew that number to 48.1 million Americans who cannot secure a job that pays a living wage in order for them to feed their families. But at the same time, he sues states like South Carolina, Alabama and Arizona for enacting laws to protect themselves from the invasion of illegal alien migrants tapping into our food stamps, section 8 housing, free breakfasts and lunches at schools and free medical care—all paid by the dwindling middle class which he promised to bring “Hope and Change” for the better.
Now, he’s got us by the throat with Obamacare.
Irrefutable Fact of Criminal Behavior

Nicholas Purpura, a top notch investigative journalist said, “Following the election of Scott Brown, the Democratic Party panicked! They knew the (un) Affordable Care Act was dead on arrival. Senator Brown would give the Republicans the required number of votes to Filibuster the “Act.”
“Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, being aware that the House of Representatives had no time to rewrite the Senate version of the Healthcare Act, (S1796) titled the “America’s Healthy Future Act” concocted an illegal and criminal scheme to circumvent the U.S. Constitution and make it appear as if the House of Representative wrote the Health-care bill which was about to be voted on.
“Every “Act” written by the House of Representatives is assigned a House Resolution Number. Since the House never wrote the Act, no House Resolution number existed for it. To illegally acquire a House Resolution Number, a conspiracy took place that is ripe for a criminal and civil RICO action.”
They proceeded with these illegal steps.
To acquire the required House Resolution (HR) Designation number the Democratic leadership,
Obama, Pelosi and Reid et. al, took an unrelated House bill titled the "'Service-members' Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009” (HR3590) extracted the entire contents of that “Act” and inserted the Senate bill titled the “America’s Healthy Future Act” (S1796). This bill, written by Democratic Sen. Baucus, was then inserted it into the “Service-members' Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009” (HR3590) file. Thereafter, these same degenerates changed the name of HR 3590 to read the “Patients Protection and Affordable Care Act” to illegally acquire the “Service-members’ Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009” House Resolution Number (HR3590).
They knowingly committed fraud without fear of public disclosure or legal consequence. Again, as in my last column, (Ten most corrupt politicians in Washington) the corruption in Washington DC runs deeper than the Pacific Ocean.
Purpura said, “This particular bill has so many constitutional violations that AG Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia and his band of 11 are either incompetent or intentionally turning a blind eye to the shredding of the U.S. Constitution. Myself (Nicholas E. Purpura) and Donald L. Laster, Jr. presented 19-incontrovertible violations of the Constitution and statutory laws. These Constitutional challenges were presented to the U.S. Supreme Court and were denied adjudication.”
Only the House of Representatives has the authority to create law, not judges!

In 2014, we cannot trust our elected representatives to serve us because they don’t. We cannot trust them to serve our Constitution because they don’t. We cannot trust Barack Obama to serve us because he doesn’t.
At some point when the citizens of this country can no longer depend upon the laws of our nation to be enforced and adjudicated, a style of anarchy becomes reality.
It takes many forms: Black Flash Mobs running around looting and killing white Americans. The sum of $25 million dollars a day being shoplifted from our nation’s stores. Thousands of employers hiring millions of illegal aliens with impunity. Thus, they pay slave wages under the table, no taxes on work, no FICA and no health insurance. They put Americans out of work. Food stamp fraud accelerates across the nation. Millions of people illegally residing in the USA tap into free breakfast and lunches, ESL and medical care—all paid for by American citizens. Over 40 percent of illegal aliens come into America via visa over-stays with no chance of being caught or deported. Endless useless immigration injecting millions of foreign people into America annually to be supported by those of us who still possess jobs.
Yet we see the “War on Poverty” after 50 years a total failure. We see the “War on Drugs” for 45 years a total waste of money and failure. We see the “War on Terror” for the past 10 years a total failure and many of our kids dead.
Mr. Obama at the top and 535 supporting Congressional members fail the American people and our Constitution every single day of the year.

The Obamacare Assault on Religious Liberty
By Attorney Jonathan Emord
Author of "
The Rise of Tyranny" and "Global Censorship of Health Information" and "Restore The Republic"
January 6, 2014
On New Year’s eve, Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor stayed the contraceptive and abortion coverage requirements of the Affordable Care Act, sparing the Denver-based Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged from that legal imposition. Little Sisters, Hobby Lobby, and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. are among many companies having officers, directors, and employees who harbor religious scruples against birth control and abortion. The United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued an emergency stay of the same Obamacare provision for the benefit of Catholic organization plaintiffs, including the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. and Catholic University.
In 2013, facing tremendous opposition from religious groups, the Obama Administration offered an “administrative fix” to the law’s adverse effect on religious organizations that oppose birth control. Like its more recent promise to enable 5 million Americans who lost their individual insurance plans to reapply for their old policies, the “fix” fails to provide relief beyond lip service.
The Administration’s religious liberty fix simply changed who had to satisfy the law’s mandatory birth control requirement from religiously affiliated hospitals, universities and social services to those institution’s outside insurance administrators. In this way, religious institutions must still authorize and condone use of proxies to provide the very same contraceptive and abortion services they oppose. Failure to comply results in significant fines.
For profit institutions, like Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corporation, are not even allowed the same “fix” offered by the Obama Administration to religiously affiliated hospitals, universities, and social services organizations. They are required to fund contraceptive and abortion services regardless of their religious preferences.
At root, these challenges reveal the penultimate problem with Obamacare. It denies individual freedom of choice, freedom of contract, and independent professional judgment in favor of government mandates. Those mandates dictate every aspect of care through insurance proxies that implement choices made by the White House as to what coverages will be and what care is considered appropriate. Physicians in this system become mere bureaucrats who must satisfy insurers that in turn must follow the dictates of the Department of Health and Human Services that in turn must satisfy the dictates of the White House. In this system, you pay for what the government mandates, not what you desire. Individual freedom is replaced with government control.
While under Obamacare the government determines what health care offerings are recompensable, what may be charged for them, and whether you may avail yourself of them in any particular case, Obamacare leaves the costs for supporting this market dislocation to the market. The effect is to raise insurance premiums and deductibles substantially.
Many will learn this year that insurance through the exchanges may cost them as much as $10,000 or more a year but they will have deductibles of $5,000 or more, consequently in all but the most dire of circumstances they will be paying out of pocket for their health care coverage. They are, thus, “insured” in name only, left entirely with the same cost burden as if they were uninsured in all but catastrophic cases (but even in those cases not all necessary services are covered). Finally, one of the rudest awakenings those who sign up for the exchanges will experience is the reality that many of the nation’s leading hospitals and physicians will not take insurance from the exchanges. 
Obamacare’s “administrative fix” for religious liberty, like the “administrative fix” for those 5 million who have lost their pre-existing individual insurance, is an apparition. Indeed, those fixes are but a metaphor for the entire system which in Orwellian fashion leaves those “insured” largely uninsured while it proceeds to destroy what remains of a functioning market in medical care.

Let’s Talk About Obamacare Subsidies
By: Devvy Kidd
January 6, 2014
As Obamacare continues to implode, one can listen to cable network gab fest anchors and their endless panels and guests from "both sides of the political spectrum" throw around the word subsidies as if it means nothing. True, while sometimes monitoring Megyn Kelly, a lawyer on FOX, she will throw in something like "we pay for it". But, not enough time is being given to that catastrophic h-bomb to the economy nor do any of them discuss the issue of equal protection under the law which I covered in a recent column: Obamacare: New Lawsuits Should be Equal Protection Under the Law. If you haven't read that column, please take the time to do so because those so-called Obamacare subsidies are nothing but another massive Ponzi scheme that WILL finally bankrupt what's left of the middle class in this country.
For once the NY Times actually prints the truth: New York Times: Obamacare Decimates Middle Class
"But middle class Americans, with incomes much lower than the family of four in New Hampshire, will get decimated. An analysis by the Times found those in the middle class may have to pay nearly 20% of their income on Obamacare. To put that in perspective, "experts consider health insurance unaffordable once it exceeds 10 percent of annual income." Consider these examples:
"A 60-year-old living in Polk County, in northwestern Wisconsin, and earning $50,000 a year, for example, would have to spend more than 19 percent of his income, or $9,801 annually, to buy one of the cheapest plans available there. A person earning $45,000 would qualify for subsidies and would pay about 5 percent of his income, or $2,228, for an inexpensive plan."
20% of your income just for health care premiums. Oh, but it gets better - a very important read:
ObamaCare: The Neutron Bomb That Will Decimate the U.S. Economy
We know the concept behind this communist blueprint health care scheme is to pull in young healthy bodies to pay for those who can't afford custom health plans, the old and sick. A new generation of slaves. However, the plan of the stinking Red in the White House and his comrades isn't working out too well. It seems not all the 20-somethings have their heads in pot smoke. Weighing the options, they choose to pay the $87.00 fine - which by the way, spikes each year thereafter. Oh, wait, it's a tax! So said that joke of a Supreme Court Justice, John Roberts. No, wait, Kathleen Sebelius, head of the unconstitutional HHS who pimps shamelessly for the usurper in the White house says it's a fine: Kathleen Sebelius admits Obamacare is a fine… not a tax (October 9, 2013)
"First it was a fine, then it was a tax, and now it's a fine again – the definition of Obamacare changes depending on the politically expedient position of any given moment. It couldn't be called a tax in the beginning because people don't like taxes. It couldn't be a fine during the SCOTUS hearings because then it'd be unconstitutional. But, alas, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was on with Jon Stewart calling the law a fine once again."
My husband and I are not affected by the Obamacare disaster because we are military retirees who pay our own premiums through TriCare Prime. But once again, the thieves in the U.S. Congress decided they have the power to steal the fruits of our labor to pay for someone else's health care - on top of being forced with a gun to our heads to pay Medicare (which I DO NOT want to be forced into). How many more personal responsibilities are we going to be forced to pay for a hundred million other people? Not to mention Medicaid on the state level.
Despite the endless stream of propaganda from socialists and Marxists in the Outlaw Congress and the old media, no one in this country has any constitutional or "civil right" to health care. It is no different than buying car, burial or pet insurance. All three of which I have, but would never demand you
pay my premiums.
Do I wish everyone in the U.S. could have health care coverage? Yes - IF they choose to get some sort of plan or like millions of young, healthy adult aged Americans, they choose not to or purchase a plan tailored to suit their particular circumstances. That whole traitorous bunch in the Outlaw Congress decided while being cheered on by Marxist heroes like Bill & Hillary Clinton, to simply crap on the Constitution again and here we are with a mess the likes few of us have ever seen.
The same rotten SOBs who destroyed the finest health care delivery system in the world - the U.S. Congress. It all started back in 1973:
Lowering the Cost of Health Care
"We should remember that HMOs did not arise because of free-market demand, but rather because of government mandates. The HMO Act of 1973 requires all but the smallest employers to offer their employees HMO coverage, and the tax code allows businesses — but not individuals — to deduct the cost of health insurance premiums. The result is the illogical coupling of employment and health insurance, which often leaves the unemployed without needed catastrophic coverage.
"While many in Congress are happy to criticize HMOs today, the public never hears how the present system was imposed upon the American people by federal law. As usual, government intervention in the private market failed to deliver the promised benefits and caused unintended consequences, but Congress never blames itself for the problems created by bad laws. Instead, we are told more government — in the form of “universal coverage” — is the answer. But government already is involved in roughly two-thirds of all health care spending, through Medicare, Medicaid, and other programs." And: Blame Congress for HMO's by Twila Brase, a registered nurse and President of the Citizens' Council on Health Care & former Congressman and physician, Dr. Ron Paul."
Another qualified individual who spoke as a whistle blower against HMOs:
"On June 24, 2009, before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, Potter testified, "The average family doesn't understand how Wall Street's dictates determine whether they will be offered coverage, whether they can keep it, and how much they'll be charged for it. But, in fact, Wall Street plays a powerful role. The top priority of for-profit companies is to drive up the value of their stock. Stocks fluctuate based on companies' quarterly reports, which are discussed every three months in conference calls with investors and analysts. On these calls, Wall Street investors and analysts look for two key figures: earnings per share and the medical-loss ratio, or medical 'benefit ratio,' as the industry now terms it. That is the ratio between what the company actually pays out in claims and what it has left over to cover sales, marketing, underwriting and other administrative expenses and, of course,"
Potter testified, "profits."
But, we have to remember how many whores in the Outlaw Congress are bought and paid for by the medical insurance industry as well as being owned by the big pharmaceutical companies. BIG money. BIG betrayal of the American people. Too bad the American people couldn't get their heads out of rectal darkness long enough to understand what was being done to them the past four decades. Instead, tens of millions of Americans chased trivial pursuits and bought into socialist rhetoric drummed into their heads by their incumbent. Well, here we are and now those same Americans are suffering right along with those of us who opposed the unconstitutional hijacking of the health care industry.
Despite the horse manure coming out of talking heads, stupid economists and professional politicians, America's economy is not on the road to recovery. Americans are once again going into heavy debt just to stay afloat each month. With some 24 MILLION full time workers unemployed and another 90 MILLION out of the work force for any number of reasons and 49 MILLION on food stamps, just who is going to pay the TRILLIONS in subsidies about to drown all of us?
How about those making more than $170,000 a year who are going to rape you and me to subsidize their health care premiums?
( – Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), whose congressional salary is $174,000 a year, said he has purchased health insurance on the District of Columbia small business Obamacare exchange, and will accept a taxpayer-funded subsidy to help him pay for that insurance...." asked: "Why do you think it's the right thing to do to accept that subsidy? Some people are criticizing that?
"Sessions: "I opposed the bill from the beginning, but this is the health--this is a--for me, even with the subsidy that we've had before which they've ruled is proper...the Office of Personnel Management said it was appropriate to, in effect, continue the subsidy that we had, which is what we've always had. But in addition I would say that it will cost members--most members--more.”
Harry Reid Takes Taxpayer Subsidy: 'My Employer Helps Me Pay for My Health Care' - Dirty Harry hauls in an annual salary of $193,400.
"In accepting the subsidy, Rubio joins Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), who told there's "no question" that members of Congress are entitled to taxpayer help in purchasing their health insurance. Rangel said he considers the subsidies to be part of Congress' "overall compensation."
"Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) recently told C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" that as a member of Congress, he'll be forced to get his own insurance through the Obamacare exchanges, and he thinks taxpayers should continue helping him pay his premiums."
<>Some members of the Outlaw Congress have refused the subsidy; see link above. NO WHERE in the U.S. Constitution does it give Congress or OPM the authority to steal the fruits of anyone's labor to pay for someone else's health care premiums. Not to mention this unconstitutional rape and if you think it's not coming, think again. It will be the same old justification used in 2008- "too big to fail".

'Huge Gov't Bailout' of Health Insurance Industry at End of 2014
"The insurers understand that they're going to be completely ruined," Krauthammer said on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace. "And what's going to happen as a result of this? There's only one way out, a huge government bailout of the insurers is waiting at the end of next year."
And, let us not forget this group because as I said in my column, Wait gunny - I have to change my diaper, you and I are going to be unconstitutionally fleeced to pay for the consequences of sexual deviants CHOSEN sexual behavior:
The stats don't lie: 'Gay' health costs coming your way
"Medical research has demonstrated the LGBT community is disproportionately susceptible to a wide variety of health problems aside from HIV/AIDS, including mental illness and suicide, alcoholism, drug addiction and substance abuse.
"In a slide presentation titled “Out2Enroll: The Affordable Care Act and the LGBT Communities,” prepared for a Sept. 12 White House briefing on Obamacare and the LGBT community, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health counted 8 million Americans as gay, lesbian or bisexual. With another 700,000 regarded as transgender, Johns Hopkins estimates about 2.84 percent of the U.S. population is LGBT. Since the rise of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, Centers for Disease Control studies have shown that more than 60 percent of all HIV/AIDS infections – 63 percent in 2010 – are caused by homosexual acts
between men."
Sex workers? No, they're whores who prostitute their bodies for money. How many moms and dads would like to see their daughter's career choice as a "sex worker"? Their illegal profession (except Nevada) is exceedingly high risk. Obamacare Will Cover Sex Workers, Too — and This ‘Healthy Ho’s Party’ Helped Grease the Wheels
For two months now we've heard all about the sticker shock people are experiencing up front and personal. Their premiums now shooting up double, triple or more. Not to mention huge deductibles in the thousands. For a family struggling who paid $500 a month for a family health plan to now come up with $1100 a month for a health plan with provisions they neither want or need, that extra $600 bux a month in disposable income is now gone. No extra money to put into the local economy. If they don't have the extra money and qualify for the fruits of someone else's labor in subsidies, that someone - you and me - is going to get slammed in more taxes. The result: Less money into savings or to put food on the table, never mind recreational expenditures.
Right now we're only seeing the beginning of the tsunami. Just wait until those whopping 150 MILLION who have health plans through their employer kicks in and then we will see a massive financial bomb go off that will rock this country. Think I'm exaggerating? McDonald's employs roughly 300,000 in the U.S. China (Wal) Mart 1.2 million in the U.S. The majority of those jobs are minimum wage. The jackals in the Outlaw Congress think they can force employers to not only provide health care (which they cannot), but force those employers and employees into a government run taxing scheme. Where will the BILLIONS come from for subsidies for all those minimum wage workers forced into a plan? You and me.
What about small businesses - the backbone of the American economy? You can take money to the bank (if you have any left) that small businesses will be devastated by massive increases in 2014:
OBAMASCARE: Huge premium hikes rock employer-insured workers
"Sharon Wilson, an office manager in Iowa, figured she would lock in a good deal on health care coverage for her five-person biofuels company by renewing its policy before Obamacare kicked in for 2014. But she balked when her agent came back with a 81 percent rate hike, anyway."
Small employers across this country should band together and sue in large numbers; see Employers, Doctors, Obamacare and US Supreme Court Cases
And, what about the massive numbers who have gone into Medicare instead of individual health plans? Guess who is going to get stung big time in higher taxes? Everyone of us in our states. Think not?
* Perry rejects Medicaid expansion, says he won't set up insurance exchange - July 2012
Rick Perry Quietly Lobbies The White House For $100 Million In Obamacare Funding - August 2013
"Perry has been a heated opponent of the health law. He refused to accept $100 billion in federal funding to expand Texas’ Medicaid program under Obamacare, which could have helped 1.5 million poor Texans afford basic health benefits. As recently as April, Perry essentially called the expansion a joke. “Seems to me April Fool's Day is the perfect day to discuss something as foolish as Medicaid expansion, and to remind everyone that Texas will not be held hostage by the Obama administration's attempt to force us into the fool's errand of adding more than a million Texans to a broken system,” said Perry. Now, Perry is seeking federal dollars for Texas’ Medicaid program anyway."
$100 MILLION in Obamacare funding? $100 BILLION in federal funding? What $100 MILLION? What $100 BILLION? The treasury is empty. Overdrawn $17 TRILLION dollars. That $100 MILLION OR BILLION will be more borrowed debt. Those poor 1.5 million Texans already get Medicaid in this state paid for with our tax dollars. Now the criminal syndicate in DC wants to force more taxes at the federal level to fund this grossly unconstitutional disaster? They're nothing more than modern day bandits.
At Least 1.5 Million People Enrolled In Medicaid Since Obamacare Launch
"Capitol Hill Republicans are not surprised by a new study that suggests more people will make emergency room visits under ObamaCare, not fewer as President Obama and other supporters of the law argue. The Harvard University study recently published in the journal Science shows that emergency room visits increased by 40 percent for those who received Medicaid when Oregon expanded the program in 2008.
“While these higher costs don't come as a surprise to many, it has left us wondering why do Democrats call it the Affordable Care Act if the law doesn't lower the cost of heath care,” said Michigan Republican Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee."
Act surprised: Medicaid expansion under ObamaCare will lead to more emergency room visits
I wonder how this is working out for the tens of millions of Democrats who voted for someone they had no right to vote for (Obama/Soetoro) and their Democrat incumbent in the Outlaw Congress?
The effeminate, lying impostor squatting in the White House has changed the "law" sixteen times since the botched "roll out" - something, even if he were legally elected, has no authority to do.
Obama Repeals ObamaCare
It's a mess that isn't going to be fixed even if the official web site ever works right, which it never will while Americans are having their identity stolen; yes, it's already happened and will continue. Republicans are allowing themselves to be forced into playing the substitution game: Mouthpieces for the Democratic/Communist Party USA and the ones who serve in the Outlaw Congress continue the same old propaganda about Republicans have nothing to replace Obamacare.
Replace it with nothing because that IS constitutional. The primaries begin in
March; the first being here in Texas. Republican incumbents will all talk about Obamacare. They will promise to get rid of Obamacare if you just vote for them in the primary and then in November. Think that will happen with dirtbags like John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell or Raul Ryan just to name a few of the "old establishment" crooks and thieves? Think again. It won't happen. They only want your vote. They want to use you like they do every election cycle.
All the GOP "leadership" talks about is a replacement instead of the constitutional solution. For the love of God, when are conservatives going to stop buying their lies? With BILLIONS (debt) already wasted on Obamacare, the establishment 'old guard' Republicans will come up with politically acceptable excuses instead of just outright repealing the entire "law" in the house and senate (if they take it in Nov) and then over ride the fraud in the White House.
Madness. Absolute and complete insanity in the District of Criminals.
If Republicans remember one thing about Obamacare it should be this: If the Republicans would have challenged Barry Soetoro's alleged win in 2008 as an ineligible candidate, there would be no Obamacare. Instead, ALL of them including Ron Paul, sat there mute while the biggest fraud against the American people (besides the Federal Reserve Banking Act of 1913 and the Sixteenth and Seventeenth non ratified amendments) was taking place. They allowed the electoral college vote to stand. The spineless poltroons did the same thing in January 2013 and we the people are paying the price for their cowardice. See: GOP: Pay Back for Ignoring Obama's Ineligibility
Oh, but look how profitable it's been for talking heads on "conservative" talk radio, FOX and Republican incumbents! Why FOX's ratings are at the top and who and what has been the main cash cow for years? Barry Soetoro (Obama) and his "signature legislation", Obamacare. GOP incumbents have and continue to milk it for campaign donations with more empty promises.
Some states are fighting back and those leading the charge in their legislatures should be commended for standing up for their sovereignty and their citizens:* Georgia Lawmakers Announce Bill Nullifying ObamaCare
Missouri bill would gut Obamacare
S. Carolina aims to nullify Obamacare
HOWEVER, that will not stop the Gestapo (IRS) from stealing the fruits of your labor in those states to fund the Obamacare monstrosity through withholding taxes.
36 states in this Union opted to join the further Sovietization of America with the so called insurance exchanges and Obamacare. 36 states refused to stand up for the U.S. Constitution and tell the Outlaw Congress: No, we will not be part of your illegal taxing scheme. The states are under no obligation to participate in Obamacare; that is a legal fact that cannot be denied.
The Democratic/Communist Party USA along with John Boehner and other RINOs are feverishly working to give liars, cheats and thieves - illegal aliens- citizenship. Suck them into the Obamacare nightmare. Add another 30-40 MILLION and see what happens to that beast. What percentage do you think will be "eligible for subsidies"? 25 MILLION? How long do you think it will take to run up another $100 TRILLION in debt under Obamacare? Not long. Where will the money come from? There isn't enough even if the IRS confiscated 75% of your income in taxes; it will end up just like the ones below. The misnamed taxing schemes called entitlements are bankrupting this country: SS in unfunded "federal mandates" is $16.7 TRILLION, Medicare: $88.3 TRILLION and the Republicans "free" prescription pills program: $22.2 TRILLION. Look at those numbers. Add 30 - 40 MILLION illegals rewarded for lying, cheating and stealing from we the people into those three programs. How long do you think it will take to run up another $122 TRILLION in debt under those three "entitlements"? Not long. Where will the money come from?
When you hear the word Obamacare subsidies tossed around so cavalierly, remember it's your wallet about to be emptied for the rest of your life unless that disaster completely implodes and kills itself off or one of the lawsuits is successful.

Obamacare Fell Off the Website
By Servando Gonzalez
January 4, 2014
All the Obama’s Programmers Couldn’t Put Obamacare Together Again

A few days ago, somebody told me a story — most likely a joker’s fabrication — that a true specialist had offered Obama his help to fix the Obamacare website. His name is Mamadú Ubunto, a famous witch doctor from Nigeria. Mr. Ubunto promised Obama that just by killing a white goat, five black chickens and doing some chanting in front of the White House, he would have the Obamacare website fixed in no time.
Well, even though I have my doubts about Mr. Ubunto’s powers to fix the website, I sincerely suggest Mr. Obama to at least give it a try. Otherwise, nobody will be able to fix it. The Obamacare website is like Humpty Dumpty, no computer programmer can put it together again.
Why I am so sure? Because, contrary to common belief, computer programming is not an exact science, but an art. Every computer programmer has his own style and usage, which he is the only one to fully understand.
Even though computer programmers are supposed to document every single line of their programming code, the process takes so much time that is never fully done. Therefore, only the original programmer can fully understand why he did what he did. Sometimes, in the case of long and complicated programs with thousands of lines of code, after some time not even the programmer himself can understand what he did.
According to what I’ve read, the Obamacare website not only has millions of lines of code, but also it was designed by a team of computer programmers. The joke that the camel is actually a horse designed by a team comes to mind. Experience shows that when a computer program becomes too complex, no one can comprehend it entirety. As a result, if the program breaks down, nobody can fix it. This is exactly what is happening to the Obamacare website.
A common joke among computer programmers is that every computer-programming job will take double the time than you initially calculated — even if you initially calculated for double the time! It seems, however, that the programming job for the Obamacare website was not only awarded based on personal contacts (Do I smell corruption here?), not on experience and expertise, but also that it was accomplished in a rush. So, I can safely surmise that it was a sloppy job, with a lot of what in computer programmers’ jargon is called “spaghetti code.”
Therefore, forget about it. The Obamacare website is unfixable. Fubar! Kaput! End! Finito!
So, if you have been fooled to believe that the Obamacare website is now working, or that it has just some minor problems that eventually will be fixed, or that your personal information is secure, it can only shows that you are a very gullible person, to say the least.
But the Obamacare Website programming fiasco is not the first in the history of mankind, and most likely it will not be the last.
Some Other Major Computer Programming Fiascos
The Denver International Airport in Denver, Colorado, is the largest airport in the U.S. It was scheduled to open on May 15, 1994. The best computer programmers at the time designed its fully computerized baggage transport system. The core of this innovative system was the airport’s subterranean baggage-handling system. Like intelligent coalmine cars along 21 miles of track, 4,000 independent, computer-controlled “telecars” would route and deliver luggage between the counters, gates and claim areas of 20 different airlines. A central nervous system of some 100 computers networked to one another and to 5,000 electronic eyes, 400 radio receivers and 56 bar-code scanners orchestrated the safe and timely arrival of every single piece of luggage. It was supposed to be a marvelous technological innovation resulting in cutting airline labor costs and shortening waiting times for luggage.[1]
To everybody’s utter surprise, however, the system never worked. Actually it was a disastrous failure. As a result, the airport didn’t open in May 1994, but not until February 1995, with separate systems for each concourse, with different levels of automation.
The initial cost of the marvelous computerized system was $186 million. As it usually happens, however, the costs grew by $1 million per day during months of modifications and repairs. In a last effort to fix it, the computer code was sent to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to be fixed. After some extraordinary efforts, however, not even the computer wizards at the MIT were able to disentangle the programming code and fix the program. As a result, they had to trash it.
Another notable case of computer programming catastrophic failure is the California DMV attempt to fully automate its operations.
In 1987, the California Department of Motor Vehicles decided to fully computerize the state’s driver and vehicle registration system. Its goal was to unveil convenient one-stop renewal offices in about a year. Instead the DMV project’s cost exploded to 6.5 times the expected price and the delivery date receded to 1998. Faced with failure after failure to make the system work, in December of that year the DMV pulled the plug and ended the seven-year, $44.3-million investment.
The cases I have mentioned above are not the exception, but the norm. In June 1994, IBM’s Consulting Group released the results of a survey of 24 leading companies that had developed large distributed computer systems. The numbers were unsettling: 55 percent of the projects cost more than expected, 68 percent overran their schedules and 88 percent had to be substantially redesigned or abandoned.[2]
A Silver Lining
As I have mentioned in previous books and articles, Barry Soetoro (a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama) is nothing but a CFR puppet[3] and Obamacare is actually a Rockefeller concoction.[4] Moreover, being a Rockefeller baby, you can bet your money that some eugenic measures have been allowed to infiltrate into the Obamacare monster — which nobody, even the corrupt politicians who approved it, seem to have read.
Nevertheless, as the saying goes, every dark cloud has a silver lining, and the Obamacare site’s disaster is probably one of the best things that has happened to us, the American people, in the last half-century.
Usually, laws passed by the CFR-controlled politicians in the U.S. government do not have a short feedback time. When we the people finally discover that these laws are wrong and detrimental to our interests, a long time has passed and nothing can be done to reverse them. These are the cases, i.e., of the law that created the Federal Reserve Bank, the law that created the IRS, and the ones that created the National Security Council, the CIA, and later the NSA, just to mention a few of them.
In this case, however, the CFR conspirators made a big mistake. They linked the Obamacare monstrosity to a Web site, and a web site gives instant feedback. It either works, or it doesn’t.
You don’t have to wait for half a century to realize that Obamacre is a total failure.[5] It is obvious the Obamacare’s website is a total disaster. But the good part of it is that its failure has given most people an unmistakable sign that the whole Obamacare concoction is nothing but a catastrophic failure.
Thank you, Obama. Finally you and your CFR masters have done something good for the American people.
Sometimes the road to Heaven is paved with bad intentions!

Oregon and Other States See Health Insurance Cancellations Due to Obamacare
By NWV News Writer Jim Kouri
Posted 1:00 AM Eastern
January 3, 2014
© 2014
An "Inside the Beltway" legal watchdog released Oregon state records revealing a staggering high number of health insurance policy cancellations as a direct result of requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, also known as ObamaCare.
According to the group's findings, over 140,000 Oregon residents will lose their healthcare coverage as a result of ObamaCare in the beginning of 2014 and many more may lose their coverage when the employee-mandate kicks in.
Statements in the Judicial Watch obtained records, which include filings by health insurance companies with state regulators, directly contradict claims by the Obama administration and its allies that ObamaCare was not responsible for Americans losing health insurance coverage.
These new records were obtained as part of a nationwide investigation to assess the damage wrought by ObamaCare to the insurance marketplace by Judicial Watch, a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that investigates and exposes government corruption and abuse.
The state records were obtained by Judicial Watch in response to public record requests sent to each state’s insurance division, seeking the following:
The number of group and non-group comprehensive (major medical) health insurance policies for which the [STATE INSURANCE DIVISION] has received notice or report of the carrier canceling or non-renewing, or intending to cancel or non-renew, such policies, and for which the coverage termination date is after June 3, 2013, along with the number of individuals covered by such policies as of the policy termination dates.
According to those states that have responded to date, hundreds of thousands of formerly insured individuals have had their insurance policies canceled or non-renewed due to ObamaCare mandates. Contradicting claims by the White House and leading congressional Democrats, the records obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that many insurance carriers specifically cite the new requirements of the ACA as a central factor in their decision, and even inform their policyholders as much.
Typical of such notifications were the following from Oregon:
New York Life Insurance Company informed Oregon’s Insurance Division that it was discontinuing a group health insurance plan offered to an association and provided a sample letter to policyholders, notifying them of the cancellation, with the following language:
“The decision to exit the medical care marketplace was not an easy one but the evolving market conditions in the health insurance industry under Health Care Reform laws and regulations which are named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (‘PPACA’) prevent us from continuing to offer competitive medical insurance for association plans such as yours. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the actions described in this letter.”
Another health insurance provider in Oregon, Moda Health Plan, informed the state that it was exiting the individual health insurance market there, and provided a sample letter to policyholders that contained this language:
“We’re happy you chose Moda Health, and we want you to stick with us as healthcare laws change. As part of the Affordable Care Act implementation in Oregon, all of our individual and family health plans will be discontinued. That means you’ll have to enroll in a new plan. But don’t worry! We have some great choices.”
Providence Health Plan notified the Oregon Insurance Division that it was discontinuing its portability health insurance plans, and provided a sample letter to policyholders containing this wording:
“The first thing you need to know is that, due to changes related to the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, all portability plans, including your existing plan, will be discontinued after Dec. 31, 2013 and, therefore, you will need to choose new health plan coverage.”
In addition to the records from Oregon, Judicial Watch has received the following cancellation information from six other states to date:
• Connecticut: At least 26,451 polices will be canceled in 2013 and 23,504 in 2014. Those will leave 41,169 individuals in 2013 and 38,601 in 2014 with canceled health care coverage.
Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania insurance department officials reported that 250,000 Pennsylvanians are losing their coverage.
• Arkansas: With five out of nine companies providing the number of polices, individuals covered, or both; the totals are 62 policies canceled affecting at least 537 individuals. Chesapeake Life Insurance, Independence American Insurance Company, Madison National Life Insurance Company, New York Life, and Standard Security Life Insurance Company all state that their decision was prompted by ObamaCare.
Georgia: While not all companies specified the number of individuals affected, records reveal that ObamaCare mandates will result in 727 polices being cancelled, with at least 1,006 individuals losing their coverage.
• Delaware: Emails between the Delaware Department of Insurance and companies detailing the number of polices and individuals covered reveal that, while not all companies specified individual coverage, the total number of polices listed is 4,599, with at least 9,743 individuals losing health care coverage.
• North Dakota: According to North Dakota insurance department officials, 36,875 individuals are losing coverage in that state.
As additional information from other states becomes available, Judicial Watch will provide it on an ongoing basis.
The massive cancellations are in direct contradiction to statements by President Obama and congressional leaders dating back to the introduction of the health care act. As early as August 11, 2009, Obama assured a New Hampshire town hall meeting, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” According to, Obama repeated the statement at least 23 times in the ensuing years. Responding to questions on a November 17, 2013, edition of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told the interviewer, “The law does not demand that all of these cancellations go out.” It is estimated that more than 4.8 million Americans have received health insurance cancellations to date because of the ObamaCare mandates.
Despite these reports, White House adviser Valerie Jarrett tweeted on October 28, “FACT: Nothing in #ObamaCare forces people out of their health plans.”
“The entire ObamaCare fraud relies on lies,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “According to requirements the administration had written into the law from the very beginning, the Obama administration knew that 40 to 67 percent of customers will not be able to keep their policies. The information Judicial Watch is gathering state-by-state bears that out. These snapshots of information show that ObamaCare is causing a national health insurance crisis that demands immediate action.”
