2014 Will See Obama Bailing Out Health Insurance Companies

Washington Examiner reporter Byron York told Fox News on Thursday that a bailout of health insurance companies “absolutely will happen” under Obamacare, claiming a government lifeline is actually “built into the law.”

York spoke with Fox News’ Greg Jarrett and Jamie Colby about the latest healthcare tweak announced today by the White House, which allows those who were unable to sign up in time for coverage to file “appeals” to be considered on a case-by-case basis. Colby asked the reporter to break down what next month will look come Jan. 1, when Obamacare health plans are supposed to take effect.


“I wish I could tell you,” York replied. “Nobody really knows now. Because what – the basic fundamental problem here is that since all of the problems with the Obamacare website that emerged beginning on Oct. 1, the administration has been improvising this whole thing… and what the administration has done in this improvisation is ask insurance companies to just go easier on people who think they have insurance starting Jan. 1.”

“And some insurance companies have said if they receive payments by Jan. 10, they will consider that retroactive to Jan. 1,” he continued. “Others have said Jan. 15 retroactive to the first. Others have said not retroactive at all. It’s a very confusing situation, and I think what is unavoidable is that after the first of the year, people that require expensive health care treatment are going to find out then that they may not be covered as they thought.”

York explained that hospitals will continue to treat seriously ill individuals even if their Obamacare coverage fails, meaning the costs will be passed onto the healthcare providers themselves. “Of course, this was the system that the Affordable Care Act was supposed to remedy,” he noted, “and right now it doesn’t appear that there’s going to be a lot of change in that come Jan. 1.”

But it was Colby’s suggestion that the government may end up bailing out health insurance companies — now poised to cover hundreds of thousands of sick individuals without the assistance of premiums from the young and healthy — that really raised eyebrows:

COLBY: What do you think about these bailouts of insurance companies, as well? Could that happen?

YORK: It absolutely will happen –

COLBY: Will happen?!

YORK: As a matter of fact, it’s written into the law. There’s something called “risk corridors,” which basically ensure that if an insurance company ends up paying a lot more in benefits than it takes in in premiums, then the federal government will bail it out — it will make it good. And it looks like we are entering a situation — certainly in the first month of January — where the insurance companies will be in that situation. And they’e not going to take the losses. It will be the taxpayer who makes up for those losses. source – Daily Caller

  • This makes sense that this would & will happen. As the baby boomers age, their medical costs go up. And there are not enough younger people to foot the cost of insurance because their wages have been cut to part time so the companies they work for don’t have to pay insurance on them.

    It’s got to bottleneck somewhere. But don’t worry… the death panels are ready to take up the slack! ‘Right to die’ pressure will be the new normal, instead of paying for health care that they won’t get, like for cancer, the #1 or #2 killer of baby boomers.

    • This is absolutely correct. There are already things in the law that limit care to elders. The definition of elder is not that old, either. The euthanasia crowd will be happy. We need to rethink our fear of death and expectations of health as we age but that is a personal thing, not a government mandate.

  • The Chinese Dragon Flexes Its Military Muscle
    December 27, 2013 – 10:35 am EST | No Comment

    By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton


    Image: H-6K strategic bomber (YouTube).

    China is breathing nuclear fire and threatening Japan and US military bases with nuclear weapons. This just came out on the pro-communist news source: Want China Times. Who’s afraid of the big, bad dragon? Everyone should be, because the Chinese will eventually act on their threats when they deem the time right and probably, when we aren’t looking:

    The People’s Liberation Army’s H-6K strategic bomber can attack the Japanese mainland with CJ-10 cruise missiles without even leaving Chinese airspace, reports the Kanwa Defense Review run by Andrei Chang also known as Pinkov, a military analyst based in Canada.

    China had no real nuclear projection capability until H-6K entered service with the PLA Air Force, Kanwa’s report said. H-6K bombers have already been deployed with the 8th and 10th air divisions of the PLA Air Force. However, strategic bombers alone can not help China penetrate enemy defenses using surface-to-air missiles. For this reason, the long-range cruise missile has become a crucial part of China’s nuclear arsenal.

    With a range of between 1,500 and 2,000 kilometers, the CJ-10 meets the requirements of the PLA Air Force to possess the capability to launch strategic missile attacks against US military facilities and those of its allies in the Western Pacific. All major cities in India are also within range if the H-6K launches the missile from Tibet.

    In a potential war against Southeast Asian neighbors over territories in the South China Sea, the CJ-10 could be launched directly against Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines from the airspace of China’s southern island province of Hainan. Although the bomber and cruise missile lack the range to attack Russia’s largest cities, they pose a major threat to Russian cities in the Far East. An H-6K taking off from the air base of the PLA’s 10th air division in Anqing, Anhui province, would be able to strike at all US military bases in South Korea.

    If the bomber were commanded to attack Japan’s main island of Honshu, the best choice from which to launch the CJ-10 missile would be the airspace of the Shandong peninsula at a distance of 1,700 kilometers, the article said, while Heilongjiang province in northeastern China is only 1,100 kilometers from the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.

    On the list of possible targets:
    ◾US Military Bases
    ◾South Korea

    Although the Chinese have a penchant for bragging concerning their military prowess, their H-6K strategic bomber can attack US military bases in South Korea, as well as the Japanese mainland using long range nuclear cruise missiles. I have long contended that the Chinese military is now stronger than ours and they certainly have more disposable numbers of soldiers that they are more than willing to sacrifice in order to win in the South China Sea:

    China is currently embroiled in a territorial dispute with Japan over the Senkaku Islands, tensions that were heightened earlier today when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited a shrine seen by critics as a symbol of Tokyo’s wartime aggression.

    The aggressive stance by the Chinese military has been ratcheting up for some time now. As reported on this site just recently, the PLA crowed over China’s first aircraft carrier combat task force. And who could forget in November, the nuclear attack impact map displaying American cities that were being suggested as targets for the PLA’s strategic submarine force and nuclear weapons. China has also just landed an unmanned ship on the moon and has at length outlined their satellite killing defenses. A nuclear attack could also come from China in space against America and we would not be able to stop it. A depiction promoting China’s Jade Rabbit Moon rover also included a background photograph of a mushroom cloud over Europe. Many have looked at this display and have put two and two together equaling China’s militarization of space.

    While Obama bows to the Chinese; they build cities here in the US that are wholly Chinese (New York) and they buy up our real estate and businesses, we just sit idly by and let a stealth attack continue. They own us financially and there are those in power in this country who are just fine with that. They feel that in the end they will be taken care of no matter what. They might want to study history a little more closely before they have outlived their usefulness.

    The Chinese dragon is flexing its military muscle. They are probing the US military’s response to violations of international waters and air space. Pretty soon they will be done war gaming and will come for what they feel is rightfully theirs and then they will move on the global chess board to take the American King. We better counter before we are in an absolute checkmate.

    I’ll close with an interesting quote from my friend Jay Elliott:

    Almost 40 years ago a friend introduced me to the game of Go. It is the oldest board game on earth and is a mental martial art in Japan and China, complete with kyu and dan ratings. There are hundreds of professional players in the East. When Mao captured China from Chiang Kai-shek, he was asked by western reporters what he credited for his victory and he replied, “Chiang Kai-shek plays chess, and I play Go.” Fabulous game, really.

    ‘Go’ is the encircling game. Apropos for what China is doing to the US currently.

      (Before It’s News)

      Alex is joined by Joel Skousen to discuss the plans of China to have boots on American soil within days and the dangers of China’s large investment in the United States.

    • Great post…….. scary really.

      The rest of the world has caught up with the U.S, and it sounds like China has overtaken them, especially with nukes coming from the sky….. that really is a scary thought.

      They have been too quiet for too long……..just buying their time.

      If it makes you feel safer Teresa, we are closer to China!

      If they were at sea then I’m sure that it wouldn’t take much to attack us.

      Im hoping that the tribulation isn’t started by war from these guys, simultaneous attacks on all of us would cause some serious panic , but does China realise that they would be attacking their own people?? Ever been to Australia guys?? Sydney in particular?? If you have then you know what I mean.

      Don’t get me wrong though, they are good people, such hard workers just escaping their communist country to come here and enjoy a good life.

      I pray that all will turn to Jesus.

      • hi down under, not worried, we hear nothing but Iran and Nukes, think that’s some false flag for us to start a war and then this doesn’t happen? China just bought another couple cities or a lot of buildings, Spain owns the Bridges, Canada owns ??. I own a 2 person camping trailer, a motorcycle 2 dogs and that’s about it! Take care blessings to you and Happy New Year

  • Barack Obama’s dream is to bankrupt this (in his eyes) “neo-colonial” world power and leave it as a shadow of the greatness it once was. Obama will wreck American prosperity. Obama knows it was overwhelming debt incurred before and during the second world war that broke the British empire. A majority of Americans elected this America-hater who sat in a racist church for twenty years listening to anti-Semitic, racist, anti-American sermons. This man will be a stain on the history of this country. Will Americans pull themselves out of this dispirited, self-loathing, servile state of being? Time will tell.

    • The BO damage was done by the time he was reelected. His lackluster campaign was due to the fact that he told his handlers that he didn’t have anything more to do. All that was left was the denouement of what he had put in place in his first term. Our only hope is that God isn’t done with us yet. It will take a true miracle to turn this mess around and at this point I don’t see the heart of repentance that would make that happen. Individually, we can each avert disaster and we can help our family and friends avert disaster by turning our hearts totally to Jesus and let him be the author and finisher of our faith as he promised.

      • As a forty two year registered Republican, I have to say the damage was done just prior to Barack Hussein Obama. In fact the damage done GAVE US Barack Hussein Obama.

        Sadly, even self-professed born again Christians either do not read their Bible Nor do they believe the word of God (YHWH) or fear him or his name.

        “I will gather all the nations
        And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat.
        Then I will enter into judgment with them there
        On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel,
        Whom they have scattered among the nations;
        And they have divided up My land.

        August 2001: Crown Prince Abdullah Warns Bush Against Pro-Israeli Stance in Letter
        Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah writes to President Bush saying that the administration’s increasingly pro-Israel stance with regard to the Palestinians and other issues is putting the Saudis in a very difficult position. The prince warns that Saudi Arabia may need to reassess its relations with the United States. Bush immediately responds by promising a new, more balanced initiative for peace in the Middle East, including support for a Palestinian state.


        We support President Bush’s vision of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security. ……
        Republicans agree with President Bush that Israel’s plan to remove all settlements from Gaza and several settlements from the West Bank is a courageous step toward peace in the face of continuing terrorist violence. This initiative can stimulate progress toward peace as laid out in the Road Map launched by President Bush.

        Republicans commend the government of Israel for its desire to pursue peace, even in the face of continuing terrorist attacks. This is demonstrated by steps Israel has taken, such as removing unauthorized outposts and improving the humanitarian situation by easing restrictions on the movement of Palestinians not engaged in terrorist activities.

        “And I will make you a great nation,
        And I will bless you,
        And make your name great;
        And so you shall be a blessing;

        And I will bless those who bless you,
        And the one who curses you I will curse.”

        “Abram passed through the land as far as the site of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. Now the Canaanite was then in the land. The LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.”

        “We support President Bush’s vision of two states, Israel and Palestine…

        “Republicans agree with President Bush that Israel’s plan to remove all settlements from Gaza and several settlements from the West Bank is a courageous step toward peace in the face of continuing terrorist violence…

  • The End of Obama?

    This looming scandal could ruin the 44th President and disrupt the entire…

    Updated on 09/12/2013

    James Monrogh


    A few big moves stand out in Barack Obama’s Presidency.
    The $800 billion stimulus plan passed in 2009
    The $5 trillion in debt accumulation—the most of any President in history
    The passage of Obamacare… the assassination of Osama Bin Laden… and huge tax increases

    As bad as The Affordable Care Act will be, what’s coming next is going to be much worse for the american middle class. And you will hear this shocking revelation from the most unlikely person of all. Meet Jud Anglin (a wealthy healthcare business owner) who stands to gain a lot of money from the Obamacare program. Jud also happens to be uninsured himself due to a pre-existing health condition which prevents him from getting insurance coverage. So you might think he’d be happy with the “universal coverage” offered by the president’s plan. But you’d be wrong…

    Jud says “The Affordable Care Act … or Obamacare… is not the godsend it’s promoted to be. In fact, it’s been designed to distract us from something radically worse that’s on the horizon. While what’s coming will be a great thing for my business, it’s going to cause you and millions like you sleepless nights.”

    President Obama’s Big Lie: A Special Presentation

    According to Forbes.com, “Obamacare will increase individual-market premiums in California by as much as 146 percent.” And ABC News reports that “the overwhelming majority will see double-digit increases in their individual health insurance markets.” Many journalists in America also say these events are nothing compared to the next big surprise that could devastate Obama’s legacy.

    Imagine you or a loved one needing critical even life-saving surgery. But your application to the Health Board has been rejected. What will you do then? This happens every day in countries around the world. And soon… it will happen right here in America, too.

    Now Jud says there’s a much worse and much more shocking surprise working its way through the Obama administration. In the free video, he reveals how this one event could single-handedly ruin Barack Obama’s Presidency… and perhaps even his entire career.

    Even if Jud is only half right, this situation will have a dramatic impact not only on Barack Obama, but also everyone else in this country.

    • This isn’t even a looming scandal. It is current reality. Starting January 1, people will die because of this mess. Sometimes care delayed is care denied. People who get turned away for care due to payment issues or people who don’t even go for care will find themselves having waited too long. Add the coverage limits and exclusions along with high co-pays and deductibles, throw in a practitioner shortage for good measure, add a death panel just to top it off and you have a total recipe for disaster.

  • no

  • WHEN will someone start screaming IMPEACH HIM?!!

    He is making this ‘health care’ up as he goes along. This is patently illegal!!

    A healthcare law was passed – and this is NOT it!!!!!!!!!!!

    This dictator plays fast and loose with the Constitution, while he is not using it for toilet paper. ENOUGH OF
    THIS ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





    • While I would love to see BO gone and in disgrace, the reality is that the process would take too long to do much good where the healthcare law is concerned. International politics is too far gone to change by impeachment, too. We have to focus now on prayer and repentance. Part of standing in the right place as God commands is to stand against people like BO. For me, that means standing with the people who will do what is right and speak what is right without concern for what personally advantages them. I will not vote repub or dem in 2014 or 2016. I will vote character alone. Unfortunately, that limits my choices dramatically. No one who even nominally supports BO will be on my list.

    DHS insider gives final warning


    Please discuss this article at Canada Free Press (Click here)

    By Douglas J. Hagmann

    27 December 2013: Under the cover and amid the distraction of the Christmas bustle, I had my last “official” contact with a source inside the Department of Homeland Security known as “Rosebud” in my writings. My source is leaving his position, retiring along with numerous others choosing to leave this bureaucratic monstrosity. For this contact, my source took unprecedented measures to be certain that our contact was far off the radar of prying government eyes and ears. I was stunned at the lengths he employed, and even found myself somewhat annoyed by the inconvenience that his cloak-and-dagger approach caused. It was necessary, according to my source, because all department heads under FEMA and DHS are under orders to identify anyone disclosing any information for termination and potential criminal prosecution.

    “DHS is like a prison environment, complete with prison snitches,” he said, referring to the search for leaks and leakers. And the warden is obsessed. Ask anyone in DHS. No one trusts anyone else and whatever sources might be left are shutting up. The threats that have been made far exceed anything I’ve ever seen. Good people are afraid for their lives and the lives of their families. We’ve all been threatened. They see the writing on the wall and are leaving. It’s not a joke and not hype.”

    The following is a narrative from my source, prefaced with the instructions to “take it or leave it,” and “disregard it at your own peril.” He added that it’s now up to each American to act on the information themselves or suffer the consequences. “I’ve resigned myself to the fact that most [Americans] will never be convinced of the reality that is taking place right in front of them.”

    The plan explained

    “According to every internal document I’ve seen and read, and from the few people I’ve spoken with who understand what’s going on, preparations have been finalized to respond to a crisis of unprecedented magnitude within the United States. The response will include the use of lethal force against U.S. citizens under the instructions of Barack Obama.” But why?

    “‘It’s the economy, stupid,’” he began, paraphrasing a campaign slogan coined by James Carville for Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign. ”Just as I disclosed in our first meeting, the crisis will be rooted in an economic collapse. I told you last year, at a time when gold and silver were setting record highs, one specific indicator that time is very short. It is the final ‘smack down’ of the metals, gold and silver, that will presage the orchestrated economic collapse that is being planned by the bankers of Wall Street. Everybody needs to understand that this is a deliberate collapse of the U.S. economy with the oversight of the White House and the full knowledge of the Justice Department. Everyone seems to be waiting for some big, history making event that will signal the start of the collapse. The fact is that the collapse has already started. It’s incremental, like a snowball rolling down a hill. It gets bigger and rolls faster. Well, this snowball is well on its way down the hill.”

    “I don’t mean to sound repetitive, by I can’t stress this enough. Contrary to what you hear, we’re already in an economic collapse, except that most people haven’t a clue. The ‘big bang’ comes at the end, when people they wake up one morning and can’t log in to their bank accounts, can’t use their ATM cards, and find out that their private pension funds and other assets have been confiscated,” he stated.

    “I’ve seen documentation of multiple scenarios created outside of DHS. Different plans and back-up plans. Also, please understand that I deliberately used the word ‘created,’ as this is a completely manufactured event. In the end it won’t be presented that way, which is extremely important for everyone to understand. What is coming will be blamed on some unforeseen event out of everyone’s control, that few saw coming or thought would actually happen. Then, another event will take place concurrent with this event, or immediately after it, to confuse and compound an already explosive situation.” I asked for specifics.

    “As I said, there are several scenarios and I don’t know them all. I know one calls for a cyber-attack by an external threat, which will then be compounded by something far removed from everyone’s own radar. But it’s all a ruse, or a pretext. The threat is from within,” he stated. “Before people can regain their footing, a second event will be triggered.” Again, I asked for specifics.

    “I’ve seen one operational plan that refers to the federal government’s response to a significant terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Information at these levels is compartmentalized. I don’t have specifics, just plans for the response. The response will be controls and restrictions on travel, business, and every aspect of our lives, especially gun ownership and speech that incites people against the government. I guess some people would call it Martial Law, and they would not be incorrect. But understand that this will be a process deployed in stages. How quickly of a process remains to be seen.”

    The mechanics explained

    As I said, people continue to look for something big to happen first, followed by a militaristic response by the federal government against U.S. citizens. Based on what I’ve seen, I don’t believe it will happen this way, although there is one unthinkable exception. That exception would involve a ‘decapitation’ of our leadership, but I’ve seen nothing even remotely suggestive of that. But I’ve heard and even read articles where that is mentioned. Frankly, though, that’s always been a threat. I suppose that if the leadership is deemed useless, or becomes a liability to the larger agenda in some manner, it could happen. The precedent exists. Let’s pray that it’s not the case now.”

    “I don’t think anyone except the initiated few know the precise series of events or the exact timing, just a general overview and an equally general time period. I think we’re in that period now, as DHS has their planned responses finalized. Also, the metals are important because it’s real money, not Ponzi fiat currency. The U.S. has no inventory of gold, so the prices are manipulated down to cause a sell-off of the physical assets. China is on a buying spree of gold, and other countries want their inventory back. The very people causing the prices to drop are the ones who are also buying the metals at fire sale prices. They will emerge extremely wealthy when the prices rise after the U.S. currency becomes wallpaper. A little research will identify who these people and organizations are.”

    “I’d like to add a bit of perspective that might help explain the events as I described. Do you remember former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announcing that the Pentagon was unable to account for $2.3 trillion in the defense budget? That was on September 10, 2001, the day before the attacks of 9/11. Some suggest that 9/11 was orchestrated, in part to cover up the missing money, which is ludicrous. The result, however, was that suddenly the accounting issue took a back seat because of the attacks. The result will be the same. That’s a perfect example of the mechanics of what we are about to experience. It’s going to take years to sort out, and when it’s finally sorted out, the damage will have long been done.”

    “Please note a few final things. The relationship that exists between DHS today and the executive branch is well beyond alarming. DHS and other organizations have become the private army of the Oval Office. The NSA, and I’ve got contacts there, is taking orders from the Oval Office. The IRS is under the virtual control of the Oval Office in a manner that would make Nixon cower. Even though all roads appear to lead to the Oval Office, they lead through the Oval Office. It’s not just Obama, but the men behind him, the people who put him there. The people who put him there are the ones who created him.” I asked who created him.

    “First, ask yourself why there was such an all out effort to marginalize anyone talking about Obama’s eligibility in 2008. Even so-called conservatives pundits fell for the lie that such questions were nothing more than a diversion. They were following a specific drumbeat. That should tell every rational adult that he is a creation of the globalists who have no allegiance to any political party. He is the product of decades of planning, made for this very time in our history. He was selected to oversee the events I just disclosed. Who has that ability? He’s a product of our own intelligence agencies working with the globalists. He should be exhibit ‘A’ to illustrate the need to enforce the Logan Act. Need I say more?”

    As often said by another of my sources, the U.S. is a captured operation. The lie is bigger than most people realize or are willing to confront. That is, until there is no other option. By then, it might be too late.
