Story of the Year
Insurance companies are rapidly becoming mere extensions of the federal government.
by Charles Krauthammer

The lie of the year, according to PolitiFact, is “If you like your health-care plan, you can keep it.” But the story of the year is a nation waking up to just how radical Obamacare is — which is why it required such outright deception to get it passed in the first place.
Obamacare was sold as simply a refinement of the current system, retaining competition among independent insurers but making things more efficient, fair, and generous. Free contraceptives for Sandra Fluke. Free mammograms and checkups for you and me. Free (or subsidized) insurance for some 30 million uninsured. And, mirabile dictu, not costing the government a dime.
In fact, Obamacare is a full-scale federal takeover. The keep-your-plan-if-you-like-your-plan ruse was a way of saying to the millions of Americans who had insurance and liked what they had: Don’t worry. You’ll be left unmolested. For you, everything goes on as before.
That was a fraud from the very beginning. The law was designed to throw people off their private plans and into government-run exchanges where they would be made to overpay — forced to purchase government-mandated services they don’t need — as a way to subsidize others. (That’s how you get to the ostensible free lunch.)
It wasn’t until the first cancellation notices went out in late 2013 that the deception began to be understood. And felt. Six million Americans with private insurance have just lost it. And that’s just the beginning. By the Department of Health and Human Services’ own estimates, about 75 million Americans have plans that their employers would have the right to cancel. And millions of middle-class workers who will migrate to the exchanges and don’t qualify for government subsidies will see their premiums, deductibles, and co-pays go up.
It gets worse. The dislocation extends to losing one’s doctor and drug coverage, as insurance companies narrow availability to compensate for the huge costs imposed on them by the extended coverage and “free” services the new law mandates.
But it’s not just individuals seeing their medical care turned upside down. The insurance providers, the backbone of the system, are being utterly transformed. They are rapidly becoming mere extensions of the federal government.
Look what happened just last week. Health and Human Services unilaterally and without warning changed coverage deadlines and guidelines. It asked insurers to start covering people on January 1 even if they signed up as late as the day before and even if they hadn’t paid their premiums. And HHS is “strongly encouraging” them to pay during the transition for doctor visits and medicines not covered in their current plans (if covered in the patient’s previous — canceled — plan).
On what authority does a Cabinet secretary tell private companies to pay for services not in their plans and cover people not on their rolls? Does anyone even ask? The bill itself is simply taken as a kind of blanket authorization for HHS to run, regulate, and control the whole insurance system.
As if to make plain who is in charge, late Thursday night the administration did it again. It decreed that those with canceled insurance plans can now buy cheap “catastrophic” plans — that have been largely banned by Obamacare as inadequate and substandard. And HHS granted these same consumers the unique right to forgo health insurance entirely — without any penalty, something the insurance companies immediately denounced as destabilizing the risk pools of Obamacare’s own exchanges.
Three years ago I predicted that Obamacare would turn insurers into the lapdog equivalent of utility companies. I undershot. They are being treated as wholly owned subsidiaries. Take the phrase “strongly encouraging.” Sweet persuasion? In reality, these are offers insurers can’t refuse. Disappoint your federal master and he has the power to kick you off the federal exchanges, where the health-insurance business of the future is supposed to be conducted.
Moreover, if adverse selection drives insurers into a financial death spiral — too few healthy young people to offset more costly, sicker, older folks — their only recourse will be a government bailout. Do they really want to get on the wrong side of the White House, their only lifeline when facing insolvency?
I don’t care a whit for the insurance companies. They deserve what they get. They collaborated with the White House in concocting this scheme and are now being swallowed by it. But I do care about the citizenry and its access to a functioning, flourishing, choice-driven medical system.
Obamacare posed as a free-market alternative to a British-style single-payer system. Then, during congressional debate, the White House ostentatiously rejected the so-called “public option.” But that’s irrelevant. The whole damn thing is the public option. The federal government now runs the insurance market, dictating deadlines, procedures, rates, risk assessments, and coverage requirements. It’s gotten so cocky it’s now telling insurers to cover claims that, by law, they are not required to.
Welcome 2014, our first taste of nationalized health care.

Fraud- Deception carried out for the purpose of achieving personal gain while causing injury to another party.
Although there are many different types and forms of fraud, basically the crime of fraud involves the use of deception for financial or personal gain. Fraud can also be committed to gain an unfair advantage or to damage another.
In order for criminal fraud to take place, in most states, the following elements of the crime must be proven:
A misrepresentation of material facts
The perpetrator knows or believes it is not true
The victim relies on the falsehood
It results in actual loss or damage.
Fraud can range from a street-level con game to insider fraud within the world's largest corporations. There are laws against tax fraud, insurance fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, credit card fraud, securities fraud and even religious and marriage fraud.
What about Governmental fraud?
Can someone please tell me why Bernie Madoff is in prison and Obama isn't?
If Americans permit this crime to go unpunished then our Republic is dead. Folks, this is not a political issue, despite what the talking heads on TV want you to believe. This is a legal issue.
Even in amoral America, fraud is still a crime. Lying about a contract is fraud and fraud legally cancels a contract. Obama Care is void because of the fraudulent way it was presented. Read here.
President Obama should go to jail.
But he is not the only one. The entire government complex is complicit in this crime. From watching “Dragnet” as a young child I learned that helping someone commit a crime is to be labeled an accessory. Accessories to crimes are also criminals.
Boehner is an accessory. So are McConnell, Pelosi, Reid, your congressman and senators, and the entire Supreme Court of the United States. When those assigned the duty of defending the laws, don't, we become a lawless nation. Everyone of those scoundrels swore an oath to the Constitution. They have violated it.
They are straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel. Obama Care is fraud...plain and simple. Will no one do anything about it?
Come on now. If a policeman were to eyewitness a bank robbery would he not be derelict in his duty to not arrest the offender? If I can see the fraud...if you can see the you really think THEY can't see it? President Obama's lies constitute fraud.
“An official such as the president does not need to take a special oath to become subject to the penalties of perjury. He took an oath, by Art. II Sec. 1 Cl. 8, to "faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States" and to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" to the best of his ability. While he holds that office, he is always under oath, and lying at any time constitutes perjury if it is not justified for national security.” View
Nearly thirty times the President told the American people that “if you like your coverage you can keep it. If you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor.”
Now we find out that we can't and that He knew that we couldn't. All of Congress knows he said it. All of the Justice Department knows he said it. All of the SCOTUS knows that he said it.
Elected officials are not exempt from our laws. In fact, they are held to a higher standard.
Our Constitution calls what Obama has done a “high crime.” What does that mean? What makes something a “high crime?”
“High Crime” does not refer to the severity of the crime that is committed, but rather to the position of the one who commits the crime. A “high crime” is a crime committed by a person of “high authority.” The “higher” the elected position, the “higher” the severity of the crime.
Bill Clinton “lied about sex” or at least that is what they told us. “Everyone lies about sex”, remember? But Bill Clinton wasn't just the average “Joe Blow” (sorry). His lying under oath was more serious because he had a “high” position. Elected officials should be held to a higher standard when they betray the public trust.
Sadly, those in “high positions” today use their power to excuse their law breaking. Holding the “highest” office in the land does not give the President the right to commit fraud. It does just the opposite. It raises the bar in regards to honesty. Lying is a betraying of the public trust.
Treason--Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies. A betrayal of trust or confidence.
President Obama has committed treason.. Obama Care is aiding our enemies by destroying the economic stability of the citizens of this nation. Obama Care steals from the citizens.
No one will say it. No one has the guts to take a stand. This isn't a political issue; this is a national security issue. The liars all protect each other.
Our government is criminal. Let's face the facts. Why waste time trying to unravel hidden lies...Benghazi, NSA, IRS...when we won't deal with the obvious public lies?
We can't get lost in the weeds. The scandals in our government are legion, but every “investigation” leads down a bunny trail and permits the guilty to continue to lie and obfuscate. In the Obama administration the buck never stops.
But Obama Care is different. He lied to the American people regarding legislation that involves 1/6th of the US economy. That financial rape dwarfs anything Bernie Madoff could have hoped to have done. Millions will have to pay more based on a lie. That is fraud.
Let me make this so simple that even a public school graduate can understand.
The President and the Congress sold Obama Care to us on false pretenses. We have video of his lie. We have eyewitness accounts. We now know it was a lie, and we know that he knew it was untrue when he said it.
Folks, nothing else matters. His lie constitutes fraud--Deception carried out for the purpose of achieving personal gain while causing injury to another party—PERIOD.
In the private sector the Department of Justice would be all over it. In the government, the Department of Justice is part of the fraud. They throw Madoff in prison and cover for Obama.
America would be safer with Bernie Madoff in the White House.
Our government is lawless. The foxes are minding the chicken coop. If this crime is not punished America is nothing more than one of those Banana Republics we all used to laugh about.
Are there no honest judges in America? Are there no honest legislators in America? Where are the ACLJ, The Rutherford Institute, The Alliance Defense Fund, the Thomas More Society, et al? Rather than fighting over manger scenes and a picture of Jesus hanging in the halls of the school why won't they focus all of their power on removing the liar in the White House? He defrauded the citizens!
Our elected officials do not have the stones to do it. Once again the question must be asked, where are those who represent the Lord? Until we demand accountability from those who hold public office we will never right the ship.
The dude lied to us. It has caused millions of Americans great harm. If we don't stand up now Katy bar the door.
Silence is consent. Not to act is to act.
Obama Care was sold to us under false pretenses. It was a miss-representation of the product by the salesman selling it to us. That is fraud in any book. The CEO of a private business who did what Obama did would be in jail. Why isn't he?
And to top it all off...  Who could be worse than Bernie Madoff ?
First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton roommate is a top executive at the company that earned the no-bid contract to build the failed Obamacare website.
Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.
Townes-Whitley and her Princeton roommate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.
Toni Townes,’85, is a onetime policy analyst with the General Accounting Office and previously served in the Peace Corps in Gabon , West Africa . Her decision to return to work, as an African-American woman, after six years of raising kids was applauded by a Princeton alumni publication in 1998.
George Schindler, the president for U.S. and Canada of the Canadian-based CGI Group, CGI Federal’s parent company, became an Obama 2012 campaign donor after his company gained the Obamacare website contract.
On the government end, construction of the disastrous website was overseen by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a division of longtime failed website-builder Kathleen Sebelius’ Department of Health and Human Services.
CGI Federal did not immediately return a request for comment.

Lets see if we can connect the dots here ...
1.) No American companies considered;
2.) A Canadian company hired;
3.) No Bid contract for $93 million;
4.) Top executive at website-building firm went to school with Michelle Obama and was her roommate;
5.) Previous experience building gun registry for Canadian government;
6.) Fired by Canadian Government for overruns that cost Canada $100 million;
4.) Overruns for Obamacare enrollment website now costing U.S. $678 million,and still going up.
Does this bother anybody else besides me? And this is just one of their corrupt enterprises. The Obamas are worse than "Bernie" Madoff and far more dangerous to the country. These thieves and traitors should be in jail for the rest of their lives.
