Countdown: 175 Days Until the End of Job Lock in America
Posted: 07/09/2013 9:57 am

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendell-potter/...
The Obama administration's decision to postpone for a year the requirement that large employers offer health insurance to their workers has been characterized by pundits on the left as a capitulation to big business and on the right as the latest evidence that Obamacare isn't working.
Actually, it's neither, although the lefties have reason to be annoyed. Even so, I'm willing to cut the administration some slack on this one. The health care reform bill passed by Congress made implementation of the employer mandate unnecessarily complicated, for both employers and the administration, as former Obama health policy aide Ezekiel Emmanuel pointed out in a recent New York Times column. The House version of the reform bill, which would have required employers with 50 or more workers to contribute a portion of their payroll to covering their employees, would have been less challenging to implement than the Senate version that became law, which requires companies to offer coverage to employees who work 30 hours or more a week.
...According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 98 percent of companies with 200 or more workers provide coverage, and 94 percent of those with 50-199 workers do. This means that the part of the reform law the administration is postponing until 2015 -- the requirement that employers with 50 or more workers offer coverage -- affects only a very small percentage of companies and between 1 million and 1.5 million people.
While it's unfortunate those folks will have to wait an extra year before their employers offer subsidized coverage, it doesn't mean that they will necessarily be uninsured. That's because of other, more important provisions of the Affordable Care Act that are still scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2014.
...Another important provision set for January 1 will prohibit insurers from charging people in their 40s, 50s and 60s more than three times as much as people in their 20s and 30s.
...In addition, in less than three months, people who can't get coverage through their workplace can shop for it in a way that finally makes sense. They'll be able to buy it on the online marketplaces that every state and the District of Columbia must have up and running on Oct. 1.
...Also gone forever on January 1 will be an obstacle unique to America in the developed world -- job lock. An untold number of Americans for all practical purposes are indentured servants in large corporations, locked into jobs they don't like but won't dare quit because of their employer-subsidized health coverage.
...The postponement of the so-called employer mandate, which won't affect many employers in the first place, will not delay the end of job lock or the implementation of the long-awaited consumer protections that will go into effect in a few months. If it did, we'd have reason to march on the White House. It doesn't. So let's chill.
You didn't answer the man's question.

Why No One Should Lose Sleep Because Big Insurers Are Taking a Pass on Exchanges
Posted: 07/02/2013 10:45 am
Wendell Potter
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendell-potter/...
...Some critics of the reform law are suggesting that if the big companies aren't willing to sell policies on all the exchanges, Obamacare is somehow fatally flawed and will surely fail to live up to the promise of lower premiums through more robust competition among insurers.
But I think we'll all be just as well off if the big companies stay out of the individual and small group market, which the exchanges are designed to serve. Those companies have overhead costs and are under constant pressure from their shareholders and Wall Street financial analysts to spend as little of their premium revenue paying claims as the law will allow.
That means most of those who are selling policies to individuals and small businesses will primarily be nonprofit companies, including the new co-op health plans that have received start-up loans from the federal government. Without the need to price their policies to cover a substantial profit and pay executives millions of dollars every year, the nonprofits should be able to sell coverage that is more affordable.

A GOP Idea That's Part of Obamacare Showing Signs of Working as Planned
Posted: 05/13/2013 3:34 pm
Wendell Potter
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendell-potter/...
...While it's possible that some people will have to pay more -- especially those with low-benefit, high-deductible plans that are soon to be abolished -- most folks who have to buy coverage without an employer's help will likely pay less, thanks to income-based tax credits that will be available for the first time. As the Oregonian noted, at least half the people who buy coverage on the state's exchange will qualify for a tax credit. And they'll be able to determine quickly how much the tax credit will reduce their premiums simply by providing income information on the exchange website.
Americans in every state can look forward to these GOP-inspired consumer benefits and protections and the very real possibility of lower premiums, assuming ObamaCare goes forward. Which, of course, it won't if House Republicans' 40th attempt to repeal ObamaCare does indeed prove to be the charm.

It's CEO Pay Shock, Not Premium Rate Shock, That We Should Be Outraged About
Posted: 04/15/2013 11:45 am
Wendell Potter
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendell-potter/...
...Policies will have to provide decent coverage for hospitalization and other "essential benefits," and the annual and lifetime caps will be banned. Insurers will also have to provide information in plain language about what is covered and in a format that will enable consumers to make apples-to-apples comparisons among plans.
Aetna CEO Bertolini probably was thinking of the thousands of people who are currently enrolled in limited benefit plans when he warned of premium rate shock. And he has a point. The premiums for such plans are low compared to policies that actually cover medical care doctors and nurses provide to cure you once you've been hospitalized. It's not unreasonable to think that Aetna would charge its existing limited benefit customers more for real insurance -- maybe even twice as much. But because insurers market limited benefit plans to low income workers, most likely will qualify for subsidies to help them pay the premiums.
Indeed those people might be shocked when Aetna tells them how much they'll have to pay for a plan that is not "virtually worthless."
Is everyone taxed equally for this benefit?

Yes, there is information about his brother. Just as I said. You might re-read it since you probably didn't really read it carefully in the first place.
I think it is ignorant to totally ignore new information, technology, or thoughts that you may not want to hear. Remember people made fun of Columbus for saying the world wasn't flat. People poked fun at the movie serials of Buck Rogers, saying that space travel was impossible. Fun has been made of the book 1984, and now it has come true. The same goes for the book Atlas Shrugged, which should be a must read for every American.
Obviously if it isn't 140 year old history you don't keep an open mind. Both of us have been brought up to believe deceptions. You must keep an open mind if you wish to escape them and gain new knowledge. Don't live in the past.
If it is accurate then I am confident that the mainstream media will pick up on it, I will take is more serious then.

For the clueless, gutless, and uneducated "judges" out there, please explain your ignorant judgements, if you can. While you're at it, tell me where lower and middle income workers are going to get the money to buy health insurance, if you can. Tell me why the individual mandate was not postponed also, if you can.
They can't, they (liberals) don't get the fact that obamacare a tax that will gouge the middle and lower classes the most.

If you’re a company making billions in profits, you’re exempt from Obamacare next year. But if you’re a 28-year-old struggling to pay off your student loans, you’re not.

If you’re a big bank or financial company, you don’t have to comply with Obamcare, But if you’re a single parent trying to make ends meet, you do.

I will try again. One last time. No, I am not saying there was a secret plot by the Obama family.
It does give links between Obamas brother Malik, and Bashir. Remember 3 days ater the attack, The Chief of Security of the Libyan Government named Bashir, Morsi among others that planed the Benghazi attack and the riots in Egypt. Bashir and Malik work together and are Islamic buddies.
You must also remember that President Obama supported Morsi as President of Egypt.
To say the least the investigation is not flattering of the Obama clan.
Just read and let your imagination roam some and you would see why the President wouldn't want all this information to appear in the New York Times.

Delaying only one aspect of this tangled mess leaves Americans holding the tab for an irreparably broken law they do not support. Moreover, it leaves in motion many of the most egregious parts of the law, ensuring they will take root in just a few short months. This is untenable.

Obamacare has become a “huge train wreck.”
