1.4 million lose health insurance under Obamacare

Want to know why the media is obsessed with trivia? Because the issues all argue for a 50-state sweep for Republicans.

Take Obamacare.

From JWF:
At least 1.4 million people in 32 states will lose the Obamacare plan they have now, according to state officials contacted by Bloomberg. That’s largely caused by Aetna Inc., UnitedHealth Group Inc. and some state or regional insurers quitting the law’s markets for individual coverage.
Sign-ups for Obamacare coverage begin next month. Fallout from the quitting insurers has emerged as the latest threat to the law, which is also a major focal point in the U.S. presidential election. While it’s not clear what all the consequences of the departing insurers will be, interviews with regulators and insurance customers suggest that plans will be fewer and more expensive, and may not include the same doctors and hospitals.
It may also mean that instead of growing in 2017, Obamacare could shrink. As of March 31, the law covered 11.1 million people; an Oct. 13 S&P Global Ratings report predicted that enrollment next year will range from an 8 percent decline to a 4 percent gain.
The press pushed a false narrative of a broken health care system so that Democrats could put in place a program that would break that health care system.

Way to go.

The Tea Party was absolutely correct on this one. And what good did that do? The media smeared them as racist, mocked them as ignorant, and ridiculed them for not knowing tea-bagger is a porn term for what Lewinsky did to Clinton.

Being right in this nation no longer matters.

But that is getting us nowhere. We must remove this cancer from our health care and our freedom.

The only way to get rid of Obamacare is to vote for Trump. Johnson won't. Stein won't.  Only Trump.


Please read "Trump the Press." It's available as a paperback, and on Kindle..


  1. This would be another reason, but I expect it's already one for so many of us.

  2. And, who was(will be) lost? The previously uninsurable with prior conditions? No. Those affected are the previously functional taxpayers who got Grubered by their white guilt vote (twice) and lack of GOP candidates with functional frontal lobes. As was known at the time, many savvy gamblers that think they are in good health will take the so-called penalty (healthy single GenXs/Ms), violating the grand theorem of insurance Ponzi©. Mr. and Mrs. America, with dependents and actual 1040s each year, lose because their risk/reward narrows with responsibility. And, now we hear most opinion polling is propagated by the insurers that have a built in TARP-like relief valve for losses structured within the original ACA. As they are oft want to say: You can't make this up.

    For kicks, while we're waiting for another grope victim or global nuclear attack, go back to the months before the ACA was even brought to the congressional snakes in DC. Open up the health care sector's long term market charts. Do you see that ramp in all the insurers? Do you see that ramp for pharma? Do you see that ramp for suppliers of replacement parts for things that get neglected by the uninsured previously existing conditioned, like knees and hips? There was no better play for traders than the health care-related stocks. Notice that the ramp was way early, almost like they new it was coming.

    Bottom line: The casino always wins. And, you are not dressed appropriately to enter.

  3. Take Obamacare, please! (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) Ho-hum... Yes, the Tea Party saw the collapse of Obamacare before it was even enacted. But our betters knew this was the best way to get to single-payer (see: "Cloward-Piven Strategy). It is a very bad law on top of being un-Constitutional. Shame on John Roberts. Repeal it a deregulate health care. Then you'll see some competition. Health care companies aren't stupid and they know how to offer services competitively while still making money. Obamacare put them - and the U.S. Citizenry - in a regulatory straightjacket. Don't even get me started on the cost to the U.S. Taxpayer. - Elric

  4. What about the other seven states?

  5. Even if they did want single payer, nobody would want it now.

  6. Unfortunately Republicans have become caught up in the "repeal and replace" nonsense the MSM/DNC axis trots out on the rare occasions when they acknowledge that Obamacare is not working. You don't "replace" Obamacare with some other government-backed rubbish any more than you "replace" HIV/AIDS with cancer.

  7. And the government is now going to fix the weather for us.
