Retreat: Obama Admin May Extend
Plans Canceled by Obamacare
for 3 Years

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/6/2014 9:52:13 PM

This is either a glaring admission of defeat from the White House or… no, that’s really all it could be. After weeks of defending the cancellation of health plans insurers discontinued in 2013 in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s coverage mandates, the White House announced in November of last year that it was urging insurers to reinstate those plans. The catch was, of course, that most insurers would be unable to turn on a dime and reinstate those plans. Furthermore, the administration allowed individual states leeway to determine whether or not they would even allow insurers to reinstate

Kenyan sleight-of-hand: insurers will refuse to wade in these murky waters, and will then shoulder the blame for the hordes of newly uninsured.

The ACA is the law of the land duly (if you stretch the definition to breaking point) passed by Congress. Where is the Constitutional authority to do this? Is this his father´s private Kenyan plantation?

Wouldn´t it be up to the insurer? They legally cancelled, a court won´t order reinstatement of the policies.

What would be the time frame? How long can you wait to ask for your old insurance again? Back premiums?

The insurance companies do face a bind. They want and expect a bailout for losses on ObamaCare policies. IOW the companies know HHS has them by the nuts. They will behave if they can.

This is the desperation scenario, delay beyond his second term and hope the next president is stupid enough to attempt to implement an unsustainable piece of wreckage and get the blame.

Sorry, obie, you own this mess, it is your legacy of failure and you earned it.

If he really wants cancelled plans reinstated, there is only one way - sign a bill from Congress which repeals Obamacare. It´s a little too late for that, but it would be a start. Maybe insurers will write new plans that resemble the features of the cancelled plans.

What truly boggles the mind about Obamacare is the birth control mandate for all women, despite religious beliefs, and, incomprehensibly, a woman´s age and fertility. Many women have had hysterectomies, so why should they have to pay to have birth control in their insurance? Going back to respecting religious beliefs - since when does America not respect religious beliefs? Does anyone remember Conscientious Objectors?

While I´m not a Catholic, I think the Catholic Church is going to have to lead the way, in getting Obamacare repealed, since it is the doctrine of the church that prohibits artificial birth control. That doctrine may have been somewhat relaxed, but even more infuriating is to expect all women, long past childbearing, to pay for contraceptives as part of their health insurance - it´s illogical!

Can the administration just magically morph into BCBS, Aetna, Humana, et al? And then snap their actuarial and business fingers and, poof, overnite we have policies in force, doctor´s take last year´s card, just like it was 12/31/13?

Can we just snap our fingers, ignore law (enforce law?), and make it 1/19/09 again?

They are asking companies to take illegal actions with only BO´s word, which has proven to be worthless, for cover. If you are the board of one of the insurance companies would you like to expose your company to this type of legal threat?

First, they could be sued for providing policies that don´t comply with the law. Second, if someone buys one of these policies (for a lower price because it doesn´t have all the BOCare bells and whistles) and then they have a situation develop that falls under the required BOCare coverage, they could sue demanding the coverage required by the law. The insurance company is left paying the bills with only small premiums being paid and NONE of BOCare´s protection for "losses" associated with implementation with the law.

Doing this would be a horrible business risk.

It nicely plays into BO´s real goal of destruction of the insurance companies.

Agree w/ #14. I worked for an insurance company briefly once. We often had to forward issues to the legal department to make sure the policy complied with the law,or if it was being interpreted correctly.
The policy can´t have an asterisks saying ´´Obama said this is OK.´´

Now let get this straight. This was Obama´s own signature law. Yet the current manifestation of it bares little resemblance to what was passed by Congress and he signed into law. Most of the changes he has made are 180 degree reversals of what was signed. The ACA resembles a Swiss cheese, because of all the holes Obama has driven through it.

This was not supposed to be a blank check to allow him to do whatever he wants whenever he wants to do it. To make matters worse, he keeps reversing his directions from day to day.

This resembles a king ruling by "divine right*." That is, the king can make it up as he goes along. It is totally in opposition to the rule of law spelled out in the US Constitution.

* "divine right" is one of the biggest oxymoron´s of all time. It is neither divine nor is it right.

The Republicans are sitting there with their mouths open saying, he can´t do that! I urge them to think about the trial balloon to close Gitmo, the trial balloons to reduce the benefits for active duty veterans, his decision to delay the employer mandate, his decision to use the honor system to determine income for issuing tax credits to people enrolled in Obamacare.

Take him to court, but do not allow him to use control as President to keep changing the contractual terms of the insurance companies. At the same time, repeal the bailout clause so the insurance companies bail.

I can´t understand why some of those conservative organizations that specialize in doing so don´t come out and file charges against the administration, expecially Obozo, for breaking what is the law. Where is it written that the President cannot be charged with a crime? And show me where is says that a President can change a law with a wave of the hand? I thought that CONGRESS was supposed to pass laws. Or change them if necessary. I´m beginning to believe that we are now living in the Twilight Zone.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel. “Requiring the Census director to report directly to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a

Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
