MORE EVIDENCE OF TYRANNY?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 1, 2013) — In the wake of a troubled October 1 start and millions of angry policyholders losing their current coverage because of Obamacare, insurance executives have revealed that the regime has attempted to intimidate them into silence about the effects of the law on their industry.
Prior to October 1, many companies such as such as Aetna, United Health Care, and Anthem Blue Cross announced that they would not be participating in state-run health exchanges. Obamacare dictates more comprehensive coverage than many individual plans which were offered in what is known as the “individual market.”
According to one source, many insurance companies initially supported Obama’s plan to change health care in America reportedly to receive “profits from the influx of previously-uninsured Americans whose premiums will be paid, or at least subsidized, by taxpayers.”
It was suspected that the Department of Health and Human Services was being dishonest about premiums and deductibles associated with Obamacare plans. Putative Vice President Joe Biden stated that Medicare Advantage would not be affected, while instead, scheduled cuts were delayed until after last year’s election.
Shortly after the law was passed in March 2010, Rep. Henry Waxman asked to meet with health insurance company executives, asking them “to defend their assessment that the new national health care reform law will cost their companies hundreds of millions of dollars in health insurance expenses.”
On multiple occasions before the rollout of the individual mandate, Obama promised the American public that “If you like your health plan, you can keep it.” Speaking in Boston on Wednesday, however, Obama told his audience that people losing their plans should “shop around” in the new marketplace and that their policies were canceled by “bad apple insurers” anyway.
An official-looking, pro-Obamacare website continues to report that “Most Americans will have the option to stay on their current healthcare plans. No one, including seniors, will be forced not to have healthcare. That’s an ObamaCare fact.” Thousands of seniors have now been notified that their plans are canceled and their long-time physicians’ fees will no longer be covered. The Daily Record reports that “Under Obamacare, seniors will be required to pay significantly more for less protection. Current Medicare’s monthly cost to seniors is on average $96.40. However under Obamacare that changes to $120.20 cents in 2013 and $247 in 2014 and will increase every year thereafter. These numbers come from the Obamacare analysis conducted by Professor Emeritus John W. Hill of the Kelly School of Business, Indiana University. These are facts knowingly withheld from us until after the presidential election.”
As of this writing, the White House website states of the program, “There’s a lot of misinformation out there” while a popup leading in to the website states that enrollment begins on October 1.
The White House also refutes the claim that employers will cease offering health insurance to their employees with the implementation of the law. In a confusing statement, it says that it is a “myth debunked” that “The Affordable Care Act will help bring down the cost of health care,” then goes on to label as “Fact” that “The health policy experts and economists who have looked at this legislation have said we are pursuing every possible mechanism to reduce health care costs. The Congressional Budget Office found that health insurance reform will reduce the deficit by $210 billion in this decade and by more than $1 trillion over the following 10 years. And a family of four would save as much as $2,300 on their premiums in 2014 compared to what they would have paid without reform.”
Families across the country are finding that their new options with Obamacare are exponentially more expensive than the plans which have been canceled as a result of the law.
Normally when attempting to disprove something, the “myth” is stated, then the argument against it presented.
Hundreds of employers have reduced workers’ hours or stopped providing health care coverage as a result of the effects of Obamacare.
Website crashes, difficulties navigating and enrolling, and the dissemination of inaccurate information are still plaguing the Healthcare.gov portal, for which Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said she is responsible in a hearing on Wednesday with the House Energy & Commerce Committee. Many Republicans and some Democrats have called for her ouster if the website performance is not substantially improved by the end of the month.
Obama said he will take “responsibility” for fixing the website, on which almost $1 billion has been spent to launch thus far. Sebelius said that Obama was not told beforehand that there could be difficulties in the rollout because of inadequate testing and other coordination problems among the vendors.
Sebelius stated that she does not plan to enroll in Obamacare because she “has affordable health insurance,” referring to her federal employees’ plan.
A spokesman for the White House insists that “every day people are signing up for insurance,” but the regime has declined to say how many people have successfully enrolled and paid a premium. Early numbers reported by CBS and other sources indicate that most people “signing up” are enrolling in Medicaid, which covers basic services but is paid for by the American taxpayer.
Supporters of the regime have also attempted to silence researchers looking into Obama’s background, birthplace, and constitutional eligibility to serve. Reporters have been threatened with their careers and lives, as have bloggers and this editor. The Obama White House has used the IRS to politically target individuals, groups and religious organizations which they consider oppositional to the regime’s purposes.
In 2009, Canada Free Press reported intimidation of major media figures who had begun to question Obama’s life narrative. The mainstream media has failed to report on the forgery of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form as declared on March 1, 2012 by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse.
Some so-called “conservative” websites have self-censored the Obama eligibility/identity issue.
An anchor at CNN recently reported that “President Obama’s people can be quite nasty. They don’t like you to say anything bad about their boss, and they’re not afraid to use whatever means they have at hand to stop you from doing that, including threatening your job.”
It has been stated that “A state-run media is the hallmark of tyranny.”
