In July, Coach is Right reported that the Affordable Care Act saw to it that the nation’s best, doctor-owned hospitals would be forced to close. And now it appears that the favor is being returned as most of the nation’s top commercial hospitals will either refuse to accept ObamaCare patients, or “…accept insurance from just one or two companies operating under Obamacare.” (1)
It seems Kathleen Sebelius’ Health and Human Services Department went too strong in demanding insurance companies participating in ObamaCare cap their premiums. After all, prospective insureds must be able to afford premiums on the policies Obamacare is forcing them to buy.
Well that has not come to pass, as the many stories of “sticker shock” have made clear. And in its attempts to intimidate insurance providers into quoting lower prices, the HHS has succeeded only in causing them to create policies which will pay “…top-tier doctors and hospitals far less cash … Continue Reading:Nation’s best hospitals likely to refuse treatment to ObamaCare patients

Former Obama/White House spokesman Robert Gibbs admits Barack Hussein’s HHS minions are lying when they claim that no one in the Department knew that the Healthcare.gov website did not work properly and would lead to a rollout disaster. “It’s not believable,” said Gibbs.
As a professional liar himself, Gibbs ought to know what’s believable and what ain’t.

If I were a masochist, I would detail here all the insider corruption involved with the Obamacare rollout. To preserve my sanity, I offer only a taste…
CGI, the largest contractor, has ties to Michelle Obama, and that must make up for their often abysmal performance in other jobs. Due diligence, what’s that?
The company now charged with fixing the unholy mess that is healthcare.gov—QSSI—was already part of the project, and by most accounts has done a good job. Nonetheless, the fact that it was purchased by United Health Group in September 2012, months after it was picked by the Department of Health and Human Services to help set up the Affordable Care Act Web site, does strike one as being a massive conflict of interest.
But, give QSSI its due. Here’s the problem: To fix this shambles will require almost supernatural cooperation among the vendors, to say nothing of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which … Continue Reading:Sure we can fix healthcare.gov…No problem

The Affordable Care Act rollout on October 1st is “one of the biggest IT disasters in government history,” Representative Joseph Pitts (R-PA) told four vendors testifying before the House Oversight Committee about what went so horribly wrong with the Healthcare.gov website. Multiple vendors each seemed confident in assuring legislators that separately, each system worked. But “no beta end to end testing” was completed until just two weeks before the rollout date of October 1! In spite of a lot of double speak and non answers, an official high up in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) apparently offered this statement about ObamaCare enrollees and website plans to a HealthCare.gov vendor: “YOU’LL GET FINAL QUOTES FOR SPECIFIC PLANS BASED ON YOUR INCOME AND HOUSEHOLD AFTER YOU COMPLETE A MARKETPLACE APPLICATION.”
This website monkey wrench appears to have been a political decision thrown in at the last minute to hide the sticker shock … Continue Reading:House hearing exposes reasons for failure of Healthcare.gov
If you live in a Red State which refused to build an ObamaCare exchange and you have been divested of your doctor and your healthcare plan, don’t get mad at ObamaCare or even Barack Hussein. The reason? Here is what former DC Insurance Commissioner Lawrence H. Mirel has to say about health insurance and the states:
The problem is that the federal government has no legal authority to regulate health insurance rates. Insurance, including health insurance, is regulated by the states. The McCarran-Ferguson Act, which preserves the principle of state regulation of insurance, was not amended by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the law under which the new rule on health insurance rates was issued. So what is going on here? With no regulatory authority at all, HHS is trying to bully or shame health insurers into reducing their rate increases. The whole effort is an incredible exercise in chutzpah. (1)
In short, if the so … Continue Reading:States authorized by LAW to ignore ObamaCare mandates, rate hikes
