Obamacare and DHHS: Zero Tolerance for Dissent

We have all seen the costs of our health insurance rise over the years. And we have come to expect that the costs of insurance premiums will rise as medical costs also rise. Many analysts predict big increases in premium costs as a result of Obamacare...so Obama does the usual thing and finds some to say otherwise...typical. But what isn't typical is the way the administration is getting the insurance companies on board.

In the opening paragraph of a letter from Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Department of Health and Human Services, the Obama Administration showed us exactly how it would run Obamacare. At the same time they spelled out what Obamacare is REALLY about...and it has nothing to do with your health.  They'll run it with a Heavy Hand and a zero tolerance policy for dissent from Insurance Companies. 


"It has come to my attention that several health insurer carriers are sending letters to their enrollees falsely blaming premium increases for 2011 on the patient protections in the Affordable Care Act.  I urge you to inform your members that there will be zero tolerance for this type of misinformation and unjustified rate increases."
In the third paragraph she ADMITS THERE WILL BE AN INCREASE in premiums due to the provisions of Obamacare. 
"...any potential premium impact from the new consumer protections and increased quality provisions under the Affordable Care Act will be minimal.  We estimate that that the effect will be no more than one to two percent."
In the fourth paragraph of the letter she goes on to explain the true purpose of Obamacare...To make sure YOU( the tax payer) CAN PRODUCE MORE TAXABLE INCOME.
" Prioritizing prevention without cost sharing could also result in significant savings: from lowering people’s out-of-pocket spending to lowering costs due to conditions like obesity, and to increasing worker productivity – today, increased sickness and lack of coverage security reduce economic output by $260 billion per year."
And in the sixth paragraph she explains how they will get even for any dissent...
"Later this fall, we will issue a regulation that will require state or federal review of all potentially unreasonable rate increases filed by health insurers, with the justification for increases posted publicly for consumers and employers.  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."  

So...let me get this straight...if this monster bureaucratic nightmare causes premiums to go up substantially, the Insurance Companies can either, eat the added expense, or raise premiums as long as they lie and don't tell us it was because of Obamacare. Because if they do tell us the truth why premiums went up they risk being put out of business by the Administration.

Democrats who jammed this crap down the screaming throats of the American People, promised us it wouldn't raise our premiums, cause our employers to drop the benefit, or cost us more tax money out of our already empty pockets. They are BIG, FAT, GREASY, LIARS !!!  We already know that Health Insurance Coverage, that was not taxed last year, will now be added to our Gross Income, counted as wages and taxed. But it gets worse...now The Obama Administration is threatening to bankrupt Insurance Companies who tell their policy holders that premiums are going up because they are now required to cover pre-existing conditions, keep children on parents' policies till they are 26 years old, provide coverage with no yearly or lifetime cap, and pay into a fund to pay for coverage of low income families...all of which are newly required coverages under Obamacare and will cause premiums to explode.
