It's looking more and more like Obama's hired gun, Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is planning on driving private insurors out of business.
from the link above;
"Yesterday, she sent a public letter to the head of a health insurance industry group demanding that carriers stop "falsely blaming premium increases for 2011 on the patient protections in the Affordable Care Act," and that "that there will be zero tolerance for this type of misinformation and unjustified rate increases."
She reinforced her short-term threat with a longer-term one:
We will also keep track of insurers with a record of unjustified rate increases: those plans may be excluded from health insurance Exchanges in 2014. Simply stated, we will not stand idly by as insurers blame their premium hikes and increased profits on the requirement that they provide consumers with basic protections.
When Sebelius threatens exclusion from the "Exchanges," she is really saying: "Shut up and eat your costs, or you'll be out of business in a few years." "
Well, to me this sounds like what I've been saying all along;
They are going to drive private insurors out of business, legally, using the provisions of the Obamacare legislation passed this past spring (y ou know, the one our Representatives didn't read before voting on it?? )
They have said all along they wanted a 'single-payor' (government) system of Healthcare, and this is how they are going to go about it.
Please remember your elected Representative come November.
Look at their voting records.
If they voted for the Obamacare legislation, aka the "Affordable Care Act" on March 23, 2010, YOU need to vote against them in November.
