Aetna, one of the nation's largest health insurers, has pulled out of its sixth Obamacare insurance exchange.

The company announced this week that it will not join the state-based exchange in New Jersey, as it reviews its participation in the Affordable Care Act.

I wonder when Obama or any of the other collectivists will slander these insurance companies with the charge of racism?

Osama Obama Care is all about driving private health insurers and HMO’s out of business.Once accomplished the rest will be a piece of cake.

Democrats call people names if they dare to disagree with them... they do the same with companies. The term ‘racists’ is one of their ugliest - and most commonly used... It has nothing to do with anything other than dem hatred.

"I wonder when Obama or any of the other collectivists will slander these insurance companies"

If Aetna is admitting that they have only 2600 individual policyholders in New Jersey, that is a form of self-slandering.

I wonder how many salesmen they have to sell 2600 policies?

Probably because they sell their policies to groups of people?

"We are not, and have not been a large player with a mature, robust presence to begin with in the individual market in New Jersey," a spokeswoman said...Jersey already mandates so much expensive junk in its policies that it's not hard to imagine that providing the required coverage would be too expensive for most companies - although it is hard to see how Obamacare could be that much more expensive.....

Where is the big mouth slob? He buts into everything but no word from him on this?????...which big-mouthed slob? - oh, Christie - probably not much he can say - people all over the state seem to be slobbering at the prospect of all the great rebates they think they're going to get on their medical insurance under Obamacare - but then most of them are so dumb that they're going to get a chance to vote on raising the minimum wage to $8.50/hour in November, and a poll the other day found that about 75% of the population was in favor of the move - what can a big mouth do against that sort of ingrained naivety and jadedness?......

Slandering the insurance companies is nothing. He'll send the IRS hit squad
after the Doctors and shred their license to practice if they have Student debt,
unless they comply.

There are not enough Doctors to service Free Health Care for all the leaches
going in with back pain looking to score painkillers, and Skittle flavored Codeine cough syrup.
