Obamacare Now in "Utter Chaos:" WH Exempts Millions from January Mandate 12-20-13 (video)

Utter Chaos: White House Exempts Millions From Obamacare's Insurance Mandate, 'Unaffordable' Exchanges 12/20/2013 @ 6:20AM

It’s hard to come up with new ways to describe the Obama administration’s improvisational approach to the Affordable Care Act’s troubled health insurance exchanges. But last night, the White House made its most consequential announcement yet. The administration will grant a “hardship exemption” from the law’s individual mandate, requiring the purchase of health insurance, to anyone who has had their prior coverage canceled and who “believes” that Obamacare’s offerings “are unaffordable.” These exemptions will substantially alter the architecture of the law’s insurance marketplaces. Insurers are at their wits’ end, trying to make sense of what to do next.

Obummer"care" NOW in "utter chaos"???

They haven't seen ANYTHING yet, have they?

This is so that hillary

will come to the 'rescue' in 2016, as the crowds applaud her when she speaks about her single-payer plan.

It is by design.

The "single-payer plan." Bingo!

The current quasi-payer system was doomed to failure away. What this most recent cave-in waiver does is speed up the transition to a single-payer system. It will be on a silver platter by 2016 in time for Hillary. However if this tyranny isn't fixed and working by then, Rand will walk right into the Oval Office.

Obummer"care", Hillary, RINOs, and 2016

I'm sure that is what they have in mind. Let's be ready for them before then, shall we?

You CAN'T fool ALL of the people ALL of the time! Ain't no such thing!!

Government doesn't work! PERIOD!

This is on purpose

Everything that is happening in the U.S is not a free market!!

If you think there is a free market in America you are either confused or don't make any money!!

How can the Federal reserve print a Trillion dollars a year out of nothing, while controlling interest rates.

Meanwhile the Government is spending another Trillion over there budget

Meanwhile the tax rate in America is anywhere from 15% - 54%. NOT INCLUDING OBAMA CARE.

My definition of "free market" is nothing like the America that exists today. We live in 1984 and you people eat it up!!!

The free-market existed 200 years ago. It's what made this country into what it is today!

Let me give you a perfect example. I watched HOME ALONE 2 the other day and if you have watched the movie. The kid spends (3) days in the most expensive hotel in New york. Meanwhile buying everything in the hotel had to offer.

The movie ends with his Dad getting a $980 bill. Today that would have been 20K. I laughed out loud!

the free market is at fault

its always at fault. In 10,20 years I promise you the free market will be blamed. Either we get congress men up there with a spine or we die.

I have a solution for this

Send them a letter and tell them to shove their whole criminal racket up their ass...

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

How many times has

Barry changed the law without the approval of Congress, 20?

SteveMT's picture

Yup. That is 20 times too many.

He needs to eat some humble pie in jail.

Republicans

like Rand Paul have been warning Obamacare is a trainwreck and now more of the public is starting to see it.

Here is a HINT: GOVERNMENT DOESN'T BELONG IN THE PRIVATE MARKET

My two cents...

OR IN A PUBLIC ONE EITHER!!

PEACE AND FREEDOM!

Insurers

should start ignoring the affordable care act and simply sell as if it was a free market. That would really shake things up.

She looks like she's been crying and doing some boo hoo. Wonder if it's the pokes Stewart made about Santa being just white (kids), he just is!

Be Your Own Media!!!

Ya gotta wonder....

How long the insurance companies are going to bite their tongues and stay silent about such lunacy.

It also seems to me that if the object of ObombaCare was to destroy the free market....it's working.

I do wonder where the

I do wonder where the insurance companies stand on all this.

Whenever there's news about Obama changing something last minute, I hear a lot of comments about how the insurance companies are struggling to respond in time, everyting's in chaos, etc.

Whenever I hear that things are going well for the insurance companies, I hear about how Obamacare is guaranteed $$$$ for them, so of course they're doing great.

Big insurance started counting the money before they got it!

Big insurance makes a big mistake.

"You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table."

Ah, but you missed a major point...

The little provision that says if an insurance company changes things due to this law and then loses money, they can just report how much and the government will reimburse them!

They're STILL counting their money.

Thanks for pointing that out...No doubt now they wrote it.

Tails they win. Heads we lose, again.
