I'm not honestly sure what to call this system or compare it to. I'm not sure there is really a comparison. Calamity Care might be a fitting term,
but hardly productive. However, the issue I think is that insurance is pretty much becoming subordinate partners to the Federal Government by law, not
choice on this, and it's to our collective detriment. Their own people have and are continuing to get waivers at whatever loophole or wiggle around
method may exist to get one and for good reason.
Obamacare Summaries - Health Exchanges
There is nothing like getting it right from them directly and there it is to behold. How that can be seen as anything other than a public / private
partnership in the way the Mafia partnered with a debtor in their business is beyond me. What's going to be interesting though is that the
law Missouri passed
says and keeping in
mind, we aren't the only state to do this or something similar.
The act further prohibits state agencies from establishing programs or promulgating any rules or policies to establish, create, administer or
otherwise operate a state-based health insurance exchange unless the agency has received statutory authority to create it. The act specifically
prohibits agencies from performing responsibilities of a state-based health insurance exchange unless authorized by statute.
Now that part is what some others have done too and then they stopped there. That is also what Obama has written into the law to ignore and make a
Federal one anyway. Missouri thought of that too.
The act prohibits agencies from entering into agreements to establish or operate a federally-facilitated health benefit exchange unless the agency
has received statutory authority to enter into such agreements. In addition, the act prohibits departments and agencies from providing assistance or
resources of any kind to any federal agency or department relating to the creation of a federally-facilitated health benefit exchange unless the
assistance or resources are authorized by state statute or the assistance is mandated by federal
This passed as a Missouri State
Constitutional Amendment in the last election and it's what the Supreme Court decision Obama seemed so happy
about on one hand awhile back, also made legal and possible for the states to do in saying no to Uncle Sam and NOT having reprisals from Washington in
any other way for saying it. That part of the decision, which was the Super Court's gift to the states, is always over looked for some reason....
Anyway, we have an interesting year coming because that makes for immovable object in the path of irresistible force until the Super Court rules on it
specifically ..and this court hasn't been Obama friendly in many ways. lol... I'd hate for the crux of things to rest in their hands a second time
if I were Obama.
California didn't pass it though, so insurance companies like United have a major problem there.
