The success of Obamacare always rested on getting enough “young invincibles” to enroll on the exchanges. Since the scheme bars health plans from pricing their insurance policies to the actual risk, Washington needs a lopsided share of cheaper young people paying too much in order to subsidize older people who are paying too little.

As many people expected, not enough young folks are signing up to pay the high premiums. But the structural problem could run much deeper. The young people who are enrolling also tend to have more serious (and costly) medical problems

In short, Obamacare’s young enrollees aren’t invincible enough to underwrite the law’s delicate scheme.

The most compelling proof of this paradox comes from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, which recently gave the first significant snapshot of the health status of its new enrollees. The data show that the younger people ages 18-34 enrolling in its exchange plans have much higher prevalence of chronic health problems than the same cohort enrolled in its comparable commercial (non Obamacare) plans. The results were based on a self-assessment survey sent to its beneficiaries.

A much broader survey, released last week by the Kaiser Family Foundation, shows that this finding is probably no fluke. Kaiser’s survey polled consumers on their health status, finding that people enrolling in exchange plans are less healthy than similarly aged people that remained in non-compliant off-exchange health plans.

In the Kaiser survey, 20% of all exchange enrollees described their health status as either “Fair” or “Poor.” This compared to less than 7% of enrollees in non-Obamacare plans. Moreover, only 48% of exchange enrollees describe their health status as “Excellent” or “Very Good.” By contrast, 65% of those who enrolled in off exchange, non-compliant health plans describe their health status in a similar way.

The Kaiser data should worry proponents of Obamacare. While the Blue Cross data was largely dismissed as a potential outlier, the consistency of the Kaiser results show that the North Carolina Blues may be revealing a much broader trend.

Contraceptive Coverage Essential to Women's Health

Ob-Gyns Oppose Employer Interference in Medical Decisions
November 26, 2013

Washington, DC -- In light of the US Supreme Court’s decision today to hear Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc and another similar case*, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) reiterates our full support of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) no-cost birth control benefit as the best medicine for women and their families. A woman’s insurance coverage for contraception or other health care should not be determined by the personal or religious beliefs of the company’s owners. Decisions about medical care should be solely between a woman and her physician, with no involvement from her boss.

Contraception remains of paramount importance to women’s health for many reasons. The benefits of contraception include the following:

>>>>>>" Offers important noncontraceptive benefits, including lowering the risk of certain cancers, treating heavy menstrual bleeding and dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), and reducing symptoms of endometriosis."<< <<<

----------

That's the opinion of Ob Gyn's, which you've never had to visit, you fraud.

Why Liberals Can't Even Run a Successful Lemonade Stand
They get elected by saying, "Vote for us and we'll give you 'free' stuff and let you do whatever you want."
Of course, somebody has to pay for all of the "free" stuff and as often as not, when you bend the law to let one person do whatever he wants, it gets done at someone else's expense.
You want special privileges for the unions? You have to screw businesses to make it happen.
You want gay marriage? Well, then you'll have to force Christians to violate their religious beliefs to get it.
Want to give free contraception away? Then somebody has to pay for it and chances are, people think it's a dumb idea.
Liberals believe in deciding who wins and who loses in society based on political concerns, not merit, and it shows in the mediocrity of their performance.
Every child gets a trophy.
Keep popping out those kids without responsble fathers.
Call voter id discriminatory, but give free sanctuary city ID cards to illegal aliens so they can live in the US illegally and get more handouts.
Regulate civil service jobs to require fingerprinting and drug testing, but scream loudly when the same is asked of welfare recipients.
Cry a river about gun violence, but keep the psych wards in the neighborhoods so no one's rights get abused.
Romanticize and fight for the rights of convicted cop killers and love the idea of partial birth and later term abortions.
Never, ever consider the consequences of your impractical, feel good ideas that won't work in the real world.
So... does this mean reich wingers will get off of Soros' back? And Hollywood? And every other 'liberal' who runs a successful business?

You should tout the successes of, say, Countrywide.... or Enron.... you know, more reich wing supporters!

It makes sense that younger people who enroll in Obamacare would be those with a higher incidence of serious, and costly health conditions. The exchange plans aren’t priced for healthy consumers. They’re priced for those who plan to use a lot of medical care. The combination of costly mandates that drive up premiums, coupled to high deductibles and co-pays (and cheap, narrow networks of doctors and drugs to help pay for it all) make the plans unattractive to people who don’t foresee big medical bills.

People without a lot of chronic medical problems mostly want to be insured against some of their routine care, and have catastrophic coverage in case they get really sick. That is what people were choosing in the market until Obamacare came along.

The architects of Obamacare will inevitably hail the coverage of so many people with chronic medical problems as a triumph of the scheme. Many young consumers with chronic health problems will surely benefit from the legislation. But the tradeoff between enabling access to affordable coverage for healthier people, versus coverage for those who are sick, wasn’t inevitable.

If Obamacare had created a viable insurance pool, the scheme could have offered more affordable options for everyone. But these one-sized fits all health plans were designed in Washington, not in the marketplace. The result is policies too slim to really benefit the chronically ill (owing to Obamacare’s narrow networks and formularies) and too costly for those who don’t plan to use a lot of medical care.

If the Kaiser survey is a national reflection of the same spectacle experienced by Blue Cross Blue Shield, then Obamacare will end up serving nobody well.

Bush and Iraq
Dick and Liz Cheney's "The Collapsing Obama Doctrine" (op-ed, June 18) conveniently overlooks that it was President George W. Bush who, on Dec. 14, 2008, signed with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) calling, in Article 24.1, for the withdrawal of all U.S. forces—not just combat forces—from Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.
Anyone who doubts it might consult on the White House website an "In Focus" release of Jan. 15, 2009 or a Congressional Research Service analysis of this SOFA by R. Chuck Mason, July 13, 2009.
If the assumption was that the newly elected President Obama should negotiate a SOFA calling for a residual U.S. force in Iraq large enough to prevent the current mayhem, then why did President Bush agree to a complete withdrawal of all U.S. forces by the end of 2011 in a SOFA that he must have known would be a major road block in negotiating a follow-on SOFA for a sizeable residual U.S. force in Iraq?
You appear to be confused here. This is Patrick's response to this post.

"Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 - federal law aimed at preventing laws that substantially burden a person's free exercise of their religion - passed unanimously by the House and nearly unanimously in the Senate - signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

Any Cheese To Go With This Whine? Obama Responds to Boehner’s Lawsuit Against Him (+video)

President Obama’s sick of those big mean bullies in Congress, and he’s not taking it anymore.

After House Speaker John Boehner announced yesterday that he is pursuing legal action against him over his use of executive power, Obama lashed out at the GOP:

President Barack Obama pointed his finger squarely back at congressional Republicans on Friday, stating that their historic inaction prompted him to go it alone to address the nation’s problems.

WHINING OBAMA:“They don’t do anything except block me and call me names,” Obama said in a speech on the economy at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Obama WHINES: The GOP Keeps Attacking Me With “Phony” Scandals
.
Forget those “lost” IRS emails America, there’s nothing to see here.

FROM OTHER POSTERS:

How can one man embody the worst characteristics of a leader and still be in a leadership position? This absolutely amazes me. He lies, He complains, He fails to take any responsibility, He fails to follow the laws he swore to uphold, He blames others for his failures, He lacks insight about the ramifications of his policies, both foreign and domestic, He would rather lead from behind (or from the 9th green) than from the Oval Office and the list goes on. Damn - when is the rest of America going to wake up?

If all of my ideas were against what is best for my country, I wouldn't be surprised that many people would be against them. But Obama has deemed all of his ideas as being indisputably the very best answers to all of our problems. And we're just messing with him! What a jerk!


Who the F are these people that still adore this guy? Are those people in the audience paid by the government to laugh and applaud? Does anyone really swoon over this guy, yet?

If he make it thru the end of his term unimpeached (if that's a word), after the mid term elections,(should we make it that long without a major incident either at home or the world stage), we will all know what must be done, or else WE, will all be done.

Most pathetic reaction to Hobby Lobby decision so far?

It came from CNN’s resident morning idiot, Carol Costello, who was apparently unaware that there are THREE female justices on the Supreme Court:

COSTELLO: All right. We've been telling you about the Supreme Court's decision it just handed down that Hobby Lobby has won. The Supreme Court justices ruled in a 5-4 decision that narrowly held companies do not have to be forced to pay for some forms of contraceptives, in this case emergency contraceptives; of course, quite a blow to the Obama administration and Obamacare.

But I want to bring in our legal analyst Sunny Hostin and Rana Foroohar, CNN's global economic analyst and assistant managing editor for "Time Magazine". Sunny I want to start with you. The two women on the court dissented.

SUNNY HOSTIN, CNN LEGAL ANALYST: Actually the three women.

Duh.

So many (truthful) comments, so little time.

Obama Whines

Who are all these people that grew up as Marxists that he is talking about? I didn't grow up hating this country and wanting to shred the Constitution so he isn't like me. Why does he continue to block the Republican bills to strengthen the middle class? If he wanted to do something that we could immediately feel he would approve the
Keystone Pipeline.

Wah .. Wah ... Wah ... Somebody call the wambulance!

The Faker is just making noise, that's what he does next best to causing problems and lying his butt off. Boner and this law suit is a late piece of symbology and practically useless, if anything 6 years ago there should have been a unanimous R response to a candidate with no BC to qualify and howled loudly about lack of credentials and openess but RINO's just don't worry about representation and constituents, they worry about keeping their office and helping libs succeed..........

Wah, wah, wah, he is the biggest crybaby I ever saw. How can you respect someone like that?? I have long ago turned him off, he spits out nothing but lies, and the blamegame is front and c enter. I do not understand how he can go out there and say these things - a normal person would be embarrassed!!!!

A puppet only does what the string puller, Soros, et. al., wants the puppet to do or say, totally without emotion or guilt.

Perhaps if barry husein wasn't such an intolerant, intransient, uncompromising, Marxist despot the GOP would be more cooperative. barry brought this on himself when his first interaction with the GOP in 2009 started with "I won." Then barry and his "progressive" co-conspirators proceeded to willfully ignore their GOP colleagues and shove massive spending and the unaffordable care act down America's throat.

Mr O is a wimpy ass spoiled brat.

I wonder whom wrote those speeches for him, But then it occurred to
that all "obama" is stating, is the truth alright, But thrown in the opposite direction to fool or cover up the very things which he himself is the one. Who is spearheading what he is talking against and misleading the people again as he usually does and is very good at it,

A smoke screen to cover his own a-s is what "obama" is all about, lie's, deception, and treachery whom will say or do anything to get his wants and desires no matter what the cost is, that is the cost by you and me as tax payers.

This man is pure evil, unqualified, violent and relentless with a proven
history of an "Anti American" individual whom is out to totally destroy
America and rebuild it as a socialistic and communistic regime.!

Good God, what a blithering idiot. this imposter-in-chief will look great in hand cuffs, leg irons, and orange. law suite? how about impeach his sorry ass???

Nixon did one thing and resigned. Not a day goes by that this fake liar isn't pulling off another scandal that the complacent, biased media under reports.
