Politicians are lazy, and this is solid proof of that...can't even read what they pass. Jokers.


Had to get on twitter and send a 140 character laugh fest.

Amazing that Twitchy and Rush Limbaugh's website are the only mentions of this in the press so far.


Donna Brazile Doesn't Know Why Her Health Insurance Premium Went Up February 27, 2013 Windows Media

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Donna Brazile tweeted that her insurance premium went up and she doesn't know why, and I am not kidding. I literally am not kidding. Donna Brazile, a tweet, "What's on your menu? I just got off the phone with my health care provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. No good answer."

Now, for those of you who do not know who Donna Brazile is (and there may well indeed be many of you who don't), Donna Brazile is a Democrat campaign specialist. She is one of the ranking unelected Democrats in the country. She ran Algore's presidential campaign. She was as close to Bill Clinton as you can get without being Monica Lewinsky. I mean, she is a ranking, powerful Democrat. She is constantly on CNN and other networks doing commentary and strategic analysis for the Democrat Party.

She actually tweeted, "Just got off the phone with my health care provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. No good answer." Now, a couple of things stand out. First, is it possible...? I'm just asking. Is it possible she's not aware of Obamacare? No, it's not possible.

Second, why is she calling her health care provider asking them about her health insurance? She said she called her "health care provider" asking them to explain why her premium jumped up. The "health care provider" is the doctor. What does the doctor have to do with an insurance premium?

Well, looks like ATS just moved this post from 'Breaking Political News' to the ' US Political Madness' forum...effectively knocking it from the 'Home Page' and burying it.

Doesn't matter who is president.

For years the premiums have been going up ever year and coverage down. Insurance is a big business.

The service has been slowly getting worse. Guess it is just a money making enterprise now. Really sad.

What's that medical professional creed, the 'Hypocratic' Oath.

Just goes to show, how ignorant she thinks the voters are. Unfortunately, more of them voted, than us.

She gets to see what an open can of worms looks like, now.....

Finally, at least one person on ATS gets it.

Health Insurance cost has jumped up every year for the past several decades. I suppose all those increases were due to Obamacare as well? Even if rates don't change, every year you are a year older so your rates go up to cover the expected higher cost of your care. health insurance will never get cheaper for anyone absent a single payer, non-profit plan (Obama's original idea)

Look at the arguments you see in this thread alone: "lazy, stupid people" are meaningless words in a world without enough meaningful "work" and in 20 years, augmented reality interfaces with the public Internet will be so transparent, they will literally become invisible to end-users, robots nurses who can insert and I.V. or catheter will be the norm (and if they can insert a catheter, they can do *most* "jobs") and so on.

We are need to start addressing what such a world will look like now, in terms of how we educate our children, how we utilize limited resources like food, fresh water, energy and medicine, and so on. We need to plan for a society of 10 billion people by 2050 because 2050 is right around the corner and humans suck at mid to long-term planning.

There is no future for humanity where everyone chooses how they dispose of their own trash, or whether or not they pave their own roads. 10 billion people can't fan out and hunt for deer, or fish for dinner.

This loud, shrinking group will continue to agitate for "traditional ways" but it is pig-squeal zooting. We can either prepare for a world which preserves healthy competition while insuring abundance for everyone, or we can plan for world war and the death of 6-8 billion "undesirables." There are no "good ol' days" to go back to.

One can dress it up all one wants by putting one's own spin on what this woman wrote.Yet, the fact remains that the woman's own words clearly speak for themselves... for all to see; it is what it is, my friend.

Yet after all of your so called "increases" for years and years, she picks THIS time to make public comment about it?

Ask yourself this then. If she has seen these increases for EVERY YEAR, why pick THIS moment to comment. How does that help her or her obama-care loving party?

She may be trying to distance herself from the "great savior", or maybe JUST MAYBE - she was truly shocked that the increase would actually affect HER.

hmmmmm

"I will vote for Obama care because WE know what is best for Americans, but by god it will NOT affect my premiums" - fabricated quote from Donna Brazile.

i didn't say she wasn't an idiot. She should known better than to post what she did. It will likely lose her a whole lot of political power and most likely her job. She must be like completely unaware to give the ignorants this opportunity to bash her and Obamacare.

Based on her updated tweets, what I don't understand is why Donna Brazile thinks that insurance companies won't be able to continue price gouging after January 1, 2014.

I thought that "price gouging" had already been addressed and phased in to Obamacare to keep it from already happening.


The law requires insurers to give out annual rebates by Aug. 1, starting this year, if less than 80 percent of the premium dollars they collect go toward medical care. For insurers covering large employers, the threshold is 85 percent.

As a result, insurers will pay out $1.1 billion this year, according to the Department of Health and Human Services, although most of it will not go to individuals. The average rebate will be $151 per household, with the highest in Vermont ($807 per family), Alaska ($622) and Alabama ($518). No rebates will be issued in New Mexico or Rhode Island, because insurers there met the 80/20 requirement.

Although the percentage of insurance companies that owe rebates this year is relatively small, about 14 percent, many giants of the industry are on the list. They include Aetna, Cigna, Humana and UnitedHealthcare.

Maybe Donna should read the list of what's already been put into affect.
