UnitedHealth dropping most or all Obamacare health insurance exchanges, Currently in 34 states and covers 795k people,
Losses from its exchange business in 2015 2016 to total more than $1 billion

“If you’ve got health insurance we’re going to work with you to lower your premiums by $2,500 per family per year. We will not wait 20 years from now to do it, or 10 years from now to do it. We will do it by the end of my first term as president.”…Barack Obama

“Dean Griffin liked the health insurance he purchased for himself and his wife three years ago and thought he’d be able to keep the plan even after the federal Affordable Care Act took effect.

But the 64-year-old recently received a letter notifying him the plan was being cancelled because it didn’t cover certain benefits required under the law.

The Griffins, who live near Philadelphia, pay $770 monthly for their soon-to-be-terminated health care plan with a $2,500 deductible. The cheapest plan they found on their state insurance exchange was a so-called bronze plan charging a $1,275 monthly premium with deductibles totalling $12,700. It covers only providers in Pennsylvania, so the couple, who live near Delaware, won’t be able to see doctors they’ve used for more than a decade.”…Times Colonist November 2, 2013

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

From Yahoo News April 19, 2016.

“UnitedHealth, the nation’s biggest health insurer, will cut its participation in public health insurance exchanges to only a handful of states next year after expanding to nearly three dozen for this year.

CEO Stephen Hemsley said Tuesday that the company expects losses from its exchange business to total more than $1 billion for this year and last. He added that the company cannot continue to broadly serve the market created by the Affordable Care Act’s coverage expansion due partly to the higher risk that comes with its customers.

The state-based exchanges are a key element behind the Affordable Care Act’s push to expand insurance coverage. But insurers have struggled with higher than expected claims from that business.

UnitedHealth Group Inc. said it now expects to lose $650 million this year on its exchange business, up from its previous projection for $525 million. The insurer lost $475 million in 2015, a spokesman said.

UnitedHealth has already decided to pull out of Arkansas, Georgia and Michigan in 2017, and Hemsley told analysts during a Tuesday morning conference call that his company will not carry financial exposure from the exchanges into 2017.

“We continue to remain an advocate for more stable and sustainable approaches to serving this market,” he said.

UnitedHealth moved slowly into this newly created market by participating in only 4 exchanges in their first year, 2014. But the company then expanded to two dozen exchanges last year and said in October it would add to that total. It currently participates in exchanges in 34 states and covers 795,000 people”

    “Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.

    Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

    When an ankle bracelet goes off at the White House
    By Henry Percy

    Last weekend, Barack was holding a “Brother’s Keeper youth initiative … to keep men of color out of trouble” at the White House when the ankle bracelet of one of the rappers in attendance went off.

    Rick Ross, the “artist” in question, was recently arrested for the second time in a month, this time for kidnapping, aggravated assault, and aggravated battery after pistol-whipping a man working at one of his houses and refusing to let him leave the house.

    How does a thug like Ross get invited to the White House? Could there be danger in letting a felon close to the president?

    When I took one of the public tours, nowhere near the president, I had to present government-issued photo ID – but don’t make that a requirement to vote in this country. I’m just guessing here, but getting into the White House as a guest of the president surely requires a bit more stringent background check than touring the public spaces, right? Maybe not – if you’re the right color, if you’re from one of the caring public-service callings like rapping.

    The White House website lists prohibited items, but apparently ankle bracelets are fine. It’s all good. Hey, maybe Ross can use the incident for one of his hits.

    Thanks CDR Kerchner.

    I was typing Rafael (Edward Cruz) and I was corrected that I was spelling Edward wrong that it is (Edwardo) Cruz. I will from now on use you’re correct spelling. BTW… I assume that when someone is running for office that their full legal name should be spelled correctly on the ballots…. what do you say? On my drivers license, federal and state income tax, voter registration, bank loans, etc the correct legal spelling of my full name has to be correct. So why is some of the people who has and is running for the highest office getting by with deceiving the voters?
    Thank You …for you’re time

  16. WE……….
    ……….CAN ALL ……jump up and down, curse, scream, and otherwise expend millions of cubic feet of hot air, but ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WILL CHANGE until Americans get off their lazy, complacent a$$es and CHANGE IT THEMSELVES. Then the DEBRIS should be mercilessly shoved up the anuses of the BASTARDS who perpetrated what has and STILL IS happening to our country. ONLY WE THE PEOPLE can change it………..If nobody gives a damn then you will most likely end up eating the peanuts out of the shi# of the enemy and then saying THANK YOU to the bastard whose shi# you JUST ATE………..enjoy your meal!

  17. YO ALL………
    ……..know who I am referring to when I use the words “OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITH”. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a formal education, but when you use what you have learned to make the lives of millions of innocent people a veritable HELL ON EARTH, you deserve the same treatment as that which you are dishing out……..and perhaps even worse. When people are so cowardly that they are afraid to take the initiative they have lost the WAR before they have even fought the first battle.

  21. AND NOW………..
    …………. an LA County high school now has it’s new shiney DUAL GENDER bathroom……..and all hell has already broken loose……….with fistfights galore! The queers are smiling broadly…….now they can sneak up behind another and do a quick FEEL, and perverts can FREELY attack CHILDREN. Perhaps the QUEERS in LA will RETHINK their sick TWISTED way of life when one or more of them is found hanging from a ceiling fixture in the MULTI GENDER BATHROOM, with a tightened garrote around his/her scrawny neck. I personally think it will happen! The US Marine Corps, 1st Division at Camp Pendleton declared open season on QUEERS in the 1950s, so if they can do it so will highly angered PARENTS whose children have been attacked by the STINKING BASTARDS. Hell could easily erupt in LA.

    I wonder if the usurper will get around to painting the white house in rainbow colors?

    This usurper doesn’t have the authority to do anything! That is why this is so outrageous!

    **********

    I believe this bathroom crap has something to do with the usurper’s plans on ushering in Shariah law and treating women like farm animals.

  25. (1) The proposed change is not set to be implemented until approximately 2030.

    (2) Any proposed change in currency — or in any other area of America’s existence — can only be enacted if it is ALLOWED to be.

    (3) There will be a new administration in place as of January 20, 2017.

    (4) The new administration can keep in place the previous administration’s recommendations, plans and pet projects — or it can gut them all like fish. I could be wrong, but I don’t recall too many new presidents who kept the Treasury Secretary from the previous administration.

    (5) I find it strange that every single one of the proposed “heroes” suggested for America’s currency are black. There’s even considerable speculation that Horse-Face Eleanor (Roosevelt, that is) was part black. Friends, blacks are ONLY 13% OR LESS OF THE POPULATION. I suggest that we all remember that. This enforced “black worship” is a green steaming pile of hippopotamus crap. This is not the United States of Africa. If the Sharptons, Farrakhans and welfare trash with their expensive weaves and brand-new Cadillacs get the race war they constantly agitate for, blacks will go from 13% of the population to about 3% . . . if that. Very bad news for the regular, ordinary, decent, hard-working blacks out there.

    (6) These facts are NOT meant to make anyone mad or uncomfortable. They are meant to be words of comfort.

    Oldsoldier80 once posted some wonderful singing videos, and introduced them with the phrase “Words have power”. He was right. The more people resist the blatant attempts at psy-ops by both the conventional media and on the Internet, the more control over their own fates they’ll discover that they have.

    What these doom-and-gloom-dealing donkey poop-chutes are trying to do is convince you, and me, and everyone else that all hope is lost. Nothing will ever be done about anything. The situation is hopeless. There are people in the country who refuse to work, so let’s throw up our hands and give up. Oh nooooooooooooo, some people might even (gasp!) say mean things about those who disagree with them! Well, a citizenry who collapses into a fetal position at the thought of mean words — or at even the mere HINT of a potential obstacle — doesn’t deserve freedom.

    Putting the soapbox away now. Oldsoldier, if you can dig up those great videos you posted back then, would you mind putting them up again? I think one was of either an Irish or a Scottish choral group.

  26. Bob Strauss……..
    ………in all probability we will eventually be calling our twenty dollar bill an “AUNT Jemima” Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Tubman who is going to be on the new twenties has a very close resemblance to the Aunt Jemima logo.

  27. AFB………
    …………while I do not advocate such changes to our established monetary notes, if such people are to be included upon our money let it be the PORTRAIT of a WW2 HERO from the TUSKEEGEE airforce, who helped guard our B-17s, and B -24s as they bombed the living hell out of Germany. I think most Americans would then accept such a change. The Tuskeegee airforce was a project pursued by Eleanor Roosevelt. They proved beyond a shadow of doubt that the BLACK MAN could do everything that his white counterpart could do. BTW several of the P-51 BLACK PILOTS shot down several ME 262s………..which means that they too were capable of thinking…..after all!

  28. Very good points, Oldsailor83. I agree with you. And I know you understand that my beef is with attempts to force us all to worship the blacks as de facto “gods” and grovel in subservience to them. Most definitely NO dispute regarding the brave black men who risked their lives for their country and actually WERE heroes. We’re on the same page there! 🙂

  29. Bob Strauss………..
    As I think you already are aware, the Battle Hymn of the Republic is indeed one of my all time favorites. Sometimes when I am feeling a little down,I go to You Tube and listen to many of my favorites.
    For those who enjoy total peace, you can listen to some of the Bach Cantatas. One such that I sometimes enjoy is “The Sheep May Safely Graze” Bach. It strikes a beautiful note inside of me……..one of peaceful bliss.
    Many people do not know that the Battle Hymn of the Republic was also a favorite of Abraham Lincoln.

    you said….”I believe this bathroom crap has something to do with the usurper’s plans on ushering in Shariah law and treating women like farm animals.”
    ——————————————————————————————–

    If this be the case, and it very well may be true….then Obey and Michael had better hurry up and get their asses to Duebei or wherever they will roost after he sneaks out of the country…..they would BOTH be prime targets for punishment for their openly homosexual actions….can you just visualize Michael being treated like a farm animal…and crying that the ‘white people’ are responsible for their problems……

  31. oldsoldier80……
    ………the errant, and criminal behavior of many of today’s young black males is 99 % of the reason why they ARE WHAT THEY ARE, and WHY they REMAIN WHAT THEY ARE. A very large percentage of them have been incarcerated before they were 13 years of age……….and the same people go on to become murderers, rapists, and general habitual criminals. Many blacks come to believe that doing CRIME makes them C-O-O-L among their peers. Such logic is the result of little to no education. One begets the other! By the time they are twenty they have just three verbal expressions which constitutes a vocabulary…..(.”.F—YO MAMA”.)

  32. MANY…….
    ……… blacks have lifted themselves out of the so called WHITEY PRISON in which they live, by staying in school, and going forward………instead of backward. Many have done something constructive with their lives, and in every case there is a STARK difference. Those who have sought an education have gone on to hold good jobs, and earn great livings………which proves that there is really NO IMPEDIMENT against the black man in our society except the IMPEDIMENT THAT HE CREATES HIMSELF.

  33. Precisely, Oldsailor83! Very astute assessment.
