The Truth and Facts

United States

We were warned this would happen but no the democrats said this was another Fox news lie.
NOW WE know who the LIARS have been all along for the last 5 years.

(Reuters)- UnitedHealth Group (UNH) dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks, leaving many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company's other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.

The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing "significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment." According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.

UnitedHealth is participating in about a dozen new state insurance markets that launched on October 1 to offer subsidized health coverage under President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul.

The insurer said previously it planned to withdraw from some markets in 2014 because of the government funding cuts.

Another top health insurer, Aetna Inc (AET.N), also warned in October that it expected slowing growth in 2014 in its Medicare Advantage plans.

I had someone tell me how conservatives are the ones who always look out for the rich, but the liberals have widened the wealth gap even more by making the middle class even more poor to cover the poor and is basically destroying the middle class with this law.

Folks, believe me when I say you can keep your doctor or your insurance plan.

So this is proof that NONE of them have read the law and they are all drinking the same Kool Aid sweetened with lies. They need to be voted out.

Immediate mass overhaul of these crooks starting in 2014. throw them all out without a pension and with the same insurance options as the American people.

United healthcare does what's best for Them, not you. My God, there's not a bigger corporate crook on the world than United. Did you know that on Election Day, they made almost 70,000 employees work two hours of overtime? And it was done strategically so that their employees could not vote. My girlfriend who works from home for them got a letter (the letter made it MSNBC)... It literally made it impossible for her to vote .

Now, for those of you who don't give a shit enough about democracy to be outraged by this, you really don't deserve to live in America. Every soldier that ever died, did so that each and every one of us (except those who have lost the right) were able to vote and maintain our way of life. When The executives at United Healthcare send out this demand they should have been imprisoned.

Voting day should be a complete holiday and it should be illegal to work, or those employers who would require an employee to work, should be forced to do EVERYTHING THAT IS REQUIRED DOR THAT INDIVIDUAL TO VOTE VIA ABSENTEE BALLOT. Anything less in non-American and in violation of the constitution and worse.....IT SAYS THAT EVERY SOLDIER WHO EVER DIED, DID SO IN VAIN.

Believe me, I don't care if that person is going to vote one way or another. Anyone (especially our local Ron Ramsey, who would deny anyone the right to vote should be imprisoned and perhaps public ally flogged, but that's just my biblical opinion.

United adds and drops doctors all the time. Except Massachusetts. Let me tell you something. You do not F around with somebody's healthcare insurance in Massachusetts.

You fools who would think that United healthcare is anything less than a NAZI corporation are just totally out of touch.

You should see their own employees healthcare plans. Honestly, they should be illegal. They are horrible. They treat their employees like absolute garbage.

If the CEO showed up at my door starving to death, I would invite him in and grab the video camera. I would call my lawyer and ask of I am under any legal obligation to aid him in any way and if I could video tape him without being outside the law. If my lawyer said that I would need his written consent to videotape him, I would offer him a fistful of peanuts in exchange for his signature.

If I am under no obligation to retreat, then am I under any obligation to help?
