If Obamacare wasn’t a government takeover of the health insurance industry, then what is it now?
Of all of the last-minute delays, website bungles, and Presidential whims that have marred the roll-out of Obamacare’s subsidized insurance exchanges, what happened on Thursday, December 12 will stand as one of the most lawless acts yet committed by this administration.
The administration could pay insurers to cover up for its mistakes. But that would lead to criticism...So, instead, they’re asking insurers to pay for the mistakes. But, of course, the cost of paying for those mistakes won’t end up being paid by insurers, but by consumers, in the form of higher premiums.
...the Obama administration’s actions aren’t merely illegal—they’re unconstitutional. The Fifth Amendment of the Bill of Rights says that no one can “be deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
...the government is using the full force of its regulatory powers, under Obamacare, to threaten insurers if they don’t comply. ...HHS says it may throw otherwise qualified health plans off of the exchanges next year if they don’t comply with the government’s “requests.”
