Obamacare's PLANNED FAILURE is slowly taking hold.

Soon the "Affordable Care Act" may become the "Unavailable Care Act" as insurers pull out.

Once again, the General Accounting Office was off by millions in it's estimates of healthy participants willingly paying ridiculous premiums for those with pre-existing medical conditions.

 

Obamacare choices may go from 1 to 0 in some places...

 

Humana announced this year that they’d be leaving the markets altogether next year. That means there are parts of Tennessee that will have no insurance options unless another insurer decides to enter.

And Anthem, which operates in 14 states, is getting nervous, an industry analyst told Bloomberg News this week.

OBAMA DIVERTED MONEY FROM LOW-INCOME HOUSING TO KEEP OBAMACARE ALIVE

The Obamacare financing flimflam
By Jack Hellner
The fact that the Obama administration illegally used funds not appropriated by Congress to prop up Obamacare should be a big story, but somehow the diligent media have somehow been able to

make sure the public doesn't see it.  Essentially, the Obama administration stole money from low-income housing funds at Fannie and Freddie to prop up Obamacare after a judge told them to stop

diverting funds illegally at HHS.

From the linked article:

Federal court litigation provides evidence the Obama administration illegally diverted taxpayer funds that had not been appropriated by Congress in an unconstitutional scheme to keep Obamacare

from imploding.

In 2016, a U.S. District judge caught the Obama administration's Health and Human Services Department acting unconstitutionally and therefore put an end to the illegal diversion of taxpayer funds,

but the Obama administration didn't stop there.

The Obama administration instead turned to the nation's two government-sponsored mortgage giants – the Federal National Mortgage Association, commonly known as "Fannie Mae," and the Federal

Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, commonly known as "Freddie Mac" – to invent a new diversion of funds in a desperate attempt to keep Obamacare from collapsing.

Now we know why the Obama administration unilaterally changed rules on Fannie Mae funds in 2012.  They basically screwed private-sector bondholders and shareholders to create a slush fund for

left-wing groups allied with the administration.  These funds do not go through Congress.  They are treated as off-balance sheet entities, where the amount that comes to the government is treated as

a net reduction in expenses instead of an increase in revenue.  In other words, it allows Congress and the president to pretend they are controlling spending.

some of them, and they don't work"  M.Jordan

Now that ACA is dying under it's own weight, not all news is a horror story:

UNITEDHEALTH PROFIT SOARS AS OBAMACARE BUSINESS SHRINKS...

 

UnitedHealth's first-quarter profit soared 35 percent as the nation's biggest health insurer slashed participation in Affordable Care Act exchanges but grew just about every other part of its business.

Shades of the VA Health Care:

 

When Government Bureaucrats are in charge of your health care...What could go wrong? 

 

Instead of investigating...

Health chiefs desperate for “good news above true news” attempted what could turn out to be one of Britain’s biggest medical cover-ups.

 

EVIL cancer doctor 'could've wounded thousands' with UNNECESSARY operations

 

Ian Paterson, 59, was convicted of causing horrific injuries to 10 private patients but the final number could run into thousands.

Nottingham Crown Court heard one victim describe how she had been left looking like “she had been involved in a car crash” after an “entirely unnecessary” mastectomy.

Paterson lied to his victims, “exaggerating or quite simply inventing the risk of cancer” and claimed payments for more expensive procedures by putting incorrect codes on insurance forms.

 

Shockingly, both NHS chiefs and private health care providers were warned by worried staff over a number of years about Paterson’s behaviour. But instead of investigating, health chiefs desperate for “good news above true news” attempted what could turn out to be one of Britain’s biggest medical cover-ups.

Cost of universal health care in California -- bigger than state's budget...

 

The price tag is in: It would cost $400 billion to remake California’s health insurance marketplace and create a publicly funded universal heath care system, according to a state financial analysis released Monday.

California would have to find an additional $200 billion per year, including in new tax revenues, to create a so-called “single-payer” system, the analysis by the Senate Appropriations Committee found.

On Washington: Obama Unwittingly Handed Trump a Weapon to Cripple the Health Law

 

Judge Rosemary M. Collyer ruled that the Obama administration had no explicit authority to pay as much as $130 billion over 10 years to insurance companies to cover out-of-pocket health costs for millions of lower-income Americans obtaining insurance on the new health exchanges. Democrats acknowledge that the Obama administration left the law vulnerable to attack with the way it funded the subsidies.

Cuban Doctors Revolt: 'Tired of Being Slave'...

There is no FREE healthcare, unless you own a slave who is also a doctor.

 

Americans burdened by Obamacare now face even higher costs...

 

 

"Average family will save $2,500" NOT!

 

Jim Hansen and his wife considered themselves fortunate when they retired five years ago.

The Denver couple, both electrical engineers, were healthy. They’d socked away an ample nest egg. And they found health insurance that, if not cheap, seemed reasonable for two people in their late 50s.

Then, the math started to change. Since 2015, the couple’s annual premiums have more than tripled and may hit nearly $18,000 next year.

 

Hansen’s insurer, Cigna, plans to increase premiums for individual insurance plans in Colorado by an average of 31% for 2018 -- one of many double-digit increases slated to hit consumers around the country next year.

“Many of these people are just normal, middle-class folks,” said former Kansas insurance commissioner Sandy Praeger. “And they’re just not going to be able to afford coverage.”

 

PS: You can buy a lot of actual healthCARE for $18,000.

 

How about $55 a month?

Budgets put UK government Death Panels back in operation!

 

UK mulls surgery ban for smokers, obese...

The NHS will ban patients from surgery indefinitely unless they lose weight or quit smoking, under controversial plans drawn up in Hertfordshire.

A number of areas have introduced delays for such patients - with some told operations will be put back for months, during which time they are expected to try to lose weight or stop smoking.

But the new rules say that obese patients “will not get non-urgent surgery until they reduce their weight” at all, unless the circumstances are exceptional.

The criteria also mean smokers will only be referred for operations if they have stopped smoking for at least eight weeks, with such patients breathalysed before referral

 

NHS is in financial difficulty, and seeking to save £68m during this financial year.
