Dr. Mercola explains why WebMD is not the best source for reliable healthcare information. Between the government promoting Obamacare on the site and the pharmaceutical companies (which in many cases are in partnership with the government) promoting their products on the site, WebMD in many ways constitutes an online infomercial for the health care establishment.
The rest of congressional leadership, both Republicans and Democrats have directed their staffs to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchanges. Reid has decided not to issue such a directive. Some of his staff would prefer to keep their very generous federal worker healthcare plans. This staff helped create the the law, but no big deal.
Never buy a house from a builder who won’t live in a house he built.
It’s far too soon to tell. The overwhelming trend over the last 70 years has been toward increased statism and an expanded system of crony capitalism. But we are witness to an amazing change in the political winds. Just a month ago Democrats were declaring victory over having ended the partial government shutdown. Today there isn’t much crowing going on.
Apparently deep within the bowels of Obamacare is a provision which says that if an insurer who participates in the Obamacare exchanges loses over 3% more than they thought they would they can recoup 50% of that loss from the taxpayer. If the companies lose 8% they can recoup 80% of that loss.
Watch Ms. Pelosi tap dance. My bet is that she won’t be back to Meet the Press anytime soon.
“What the president has done here is outrageous, it is illegal, and it is unconstitutional.”
Amen to that.
I thought Obamacare was “the law.” You know, passed by Congress, the whole bit. But it appears that now the president can just single handedly say that one part of “the law” can be changed?
Obamacare is making many people and companies rich(er). Just got to be in with the right folks, and say the right things, and dollars float down from on high.
As I read this article my brow just became more furrowed. So now bribes are cool according to Kathleen Sebelius?
The President was either flat out ignorant of how the new health care program would impact people’s insurance premiums, or he flat out lied over and over to the American people. Take your pick. There aren’t too many other possibilities, and it’s hard to figure which is worse.
I take that back. Calculated deception is worse that bone headed ignorance. And I don’t think ignorance is what were are dealing with here.
