from the Los Angeles Times

By Chad Terhune

July 2, 2013

The nation's largest health insurer, UnitedHealth Group Inc., is leaving California's individual health insurance market, the second major company to exit in advance of major changes under the Affordable Care Act.

UnitedHealth said it had notified state regulators that it would leave the state's individual market at year-end and force about 8,000 customers to find new coverage. Last month, Aetna Inc., the nation's third-largest health insurer, made a similar move affecting about 50,000 existing policyholders.

Both companies will keep a major presence in California, focusing instead on large and small employers.

The moves illustrate how different companies are responding to a major overhaul of the health insurance market for millions of consumers. Starting Jan. 1, the federal healthcare law forces insurers to accept all individual applicants regardless of their medical history and provide a comprehensive set of benefits with limits on patients' out-of-pocket spending.

SOOOOO true...Come on righties explain what part of that isn't true????
all of it. so far in my life i've never been hired by a poor person and i know of people who pay no income tax and get refunds. and the wealthy can continue to relocate to lower tax states and countries (Denise Rich for one, after Holder/Clinton pardoned her criminal husband).

and hows that Obammy economy working out for the many who are permanently underemployed or have given up looking?

and coming soon...long waits for more expensive, less quality healthcare thanks to Obammy and his redistribution.

and why isnt' the lamestream media complaining about the wealth gap growing under the Obammy, The Food Stamp President?

HEY STUPID! Nurse Practitioners and Physicians Assistants need to pass rigorous educational requirements and have Masters degrees in their fields. They are definitely not third rate and are fully capable of diagnosing and prescribing treatment for common chronic conditions.
You're an idiot Galt!
There is a reason that people spend years in medical school and internships. The reason is that amateurs like nurse practitioners and physician assistants can't tell the difference between routine illnesses and serious problems. Why should anybody take the risk to save a few bucks?

The standards for these amateurs vary widely from state to state.

Obamacare at odds with state
As ‘extreme’ insurance costs loom, Senate pushes waiver

"The Affordable Care Act is proving to be anything but in Massachusetts. The recent revelation that federal regulatory changes could jack up premiums over 50 percent for some small companies has resulted in resistance from an unexpected source: the senior Democratic leadership in the state Senate.

The Senate passed a bill that will force Gov. Deval Patrick and his administration, to seek a waiver from certain elements of the ACA. The House on Friday went along with the Senate language. The move could come to a head when the provision lands on the governor’s desk. Should he sign it, it would be an embarrassing political moment for the Obama administration. How is it that the ACA is forcing significant changes to the state law officials claim was their model?"

When a good portion of the guns being used in Chicago come from out of state, then trying to control access to guns in Chicago doesn't work very well.
Instead dealers just go to a Red State to buy guns & sell them in the marketplace protected by Republicans.
Dumbwaiter sides with the NRA in making sure gun manufacturers don't lose out on any sales.
Chicago has a high rate of urban gang killings because the police just don't give a damn.

It did happen under the Bush administration...only difference was that the Bush administration circumvented the law by not getting court orders.

June, 2006: George W. Bush on the surveillance program in which the release of classified information on the governments bypassing of banking privacy protections, to tap into international banking records for information about terrorist financing:

"This program has been a vital tool in the war on terror. There can be no excuse for anyone entrusted with vital intelligence to leak it and no excuse for any newspaper to print it."

Treasury Secretary John W. Snow wrote: "In choosing to expose this program, despite repeated pleas from high-level officials on both sides of the aisle, including myself, the Times undermined a highly successful counter-terrorism program and alerted terrorists to the methods and sources used to track their money trails."

A GOP House resolution..... "expects the cooperation of all news media organizations in protecting the lives of Americans and the capability of the government to identify, disrupt, and capture terrorists by not disclosing classified intelligence programs such as the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program."

"The GOP resolution, sponsored by Rep. Michael G. Oxley (Ohio), also states that "the disclosure of the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program has unnecessarily complicated efforts by the United States Government to prosecute the war on terror and may have placed the lives of Americans in danger both at home and in many regions of the world." It "condemns the unauthorized disclosure of classified information by those persons responsible and expresses concern that the disclosure may endanger the lives of American citizens."

GOP Mantra: "Do as we say, not as we do."
