He has just rewritten The Law of The Land by executive fiat. It’s a brilliant move by obbbama, whether we want to admit it or not. He’s thrown the entire fiasco right back into the insurance companies laps. If the companies don’t reinstate the policies, he can point his finger at them and say,,,”see what meanies they are!!!” And if the GOP criticizes what he is now doing, he can say,,,”see? they didn’t really care that you lost your policies!” Been doing some quick surfing, and libs are absolutely ecstatic about his speech, saying that he has pulled victory from the jaws of defeat. And by postponing cancellations until after the elections, he’s taking a lot of pressure off donks. The Teflon Preezy may have slipped away again.

The letter, from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, specifies that insurance policies must have been in existence as of Oct. 1, 2013. It encourages state agencies “responsible for enforcing the specified market reforms” to take action to allow plans to continue into 2014.

Insurers have already expressed concern about how the “fix” will affect premiums. Karen Ignagni, president of America’s Health Insurance Plans, released a statement warning that fewer young people and at-risk individuals could now opt not to purchase coverage in the exchanges, causing premiums to rise and offering consumers fewer choices.

“Though this transitional policy was not anticipated by health insurance issuers when setting rates for 2014, the risk corridor program should help ameliorate unanticipated changes in premium revenue,” read the letter, which was signed by Gary Cohen, the director for the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight.

Dems all rushing to TV Cameras to say:

“Republican Obsession with defunding or Overturning ACA is to blame for this!!”

They are truly crazy!

That’s what this was all about....setting up Republicans. Lots of talking points coming in the next few days.

They have no real concern for the unwashed (in their eyes) masses, just lots of fake clintonian sap.

State agencies responsible for enforcing the specified market reforms are encouraged to adopt the same transitional policy with respect to this coverage. Though this transitional policy was not anticipated by health insurance issuers when setting rates for 2014, the risk corridor program should help ameliorate unanticipated changes in premium revenue. We intend to explore ways to modify the risk corridor program final rules to provide additional assistance.

I know I have been scrambling and wondering whether I should try to get a union job mopping floors somewhere. I am more than half-serious.

The thought of working a union or government job really isn’t my thing.

No gain for obama and democrats at all because in the end there will be much higher premiums and by law that money you had set aside for vacation or food will have to go for insurance instead. Taking the money out of the market destroys the market and we are losing tons of full time jobs.
It will all get worse and this cancer needs to get removed.

“And he has increased our rice allowance to 20 grams per week.”

But since king barrack hussein rules by decree, it will soon be, “If you like your 20 grams of rice per week, you can keep your 20 grams of rice per week.”

And for added emphasis, he’ll say, “Period!”

Then next week he’ll clarify with, “What I said was...”

These things always end badly for the serfs.

Today's presser of "Obama Fix" totally exposed the dictatorial nature of Obama Presidency.

He can* act how ever he chooses, and doesn't need Congress. Period.

* Illegally for 5 years, nobody's challenging him.

You called it right. Everything continues according to plan, except if you are still unhappy that you lost the coverage you liked, it is now the insurance companies' fault - not Obama's.

I just pulled up the full transcript of Obama's presser just so I could count how many first-person references he made. I was astonished. Here's the tally:

I = 150
me = 10
my = 22
we = 101
--------------
Total = 283 first-person references

This has got to be a narcissist record.

Okay, time to call the hearse.

In the morning, House should pass a bill to repeal Obamacare. (again).

Send to the Senate and let it stew over the weekend. Then, have the senate vote on it Monday. Blue state dems may now vote for repeal.

Send the Repeal Obamacare bill, passed by the house and senate, to Obama and see if he refuses to sign it.

When the lawless tyrant refuses to sign it, let the rebellion begin. . To hell with your fundamental transformation!

I'm so damn mad I could just spit.

This is America, damn it!

Repeal or War!

Two excerpts from Obama’s bla bla yesterday on obamacare......notice he calls health insurance A PRIVILEGE a certain portion of people can have......and later compares health care to having a car.......Sounds just like the old Communist Loyal Party Member Privilege of having a car......EXCEPT ITS THE WORST OF BOTH WORLDS....you only get a car as a privilege and yet, you have to pay for it.

IOW, its another look inside odumbi’s communist youDidn’tBuildThat mentality.

my unofficial poll of chronic liberals on the street concludes that they ALL automatically believe (no facts required) that the reason "Obamacare" is flailing is because the Republicans are blocking it.

the sad sick truth is more likely that the Republican rats are just along for the ride hoping to get a piece of the Obamacare spoils too

all the politicians, on both sides, should be tarred and feathered and dumped in the sea along with their poop flavored tea
