The Sibelius Cover-up

The entire administration is either dirty or incompetent, from the top down.

Weekly Standard

Many states are wisely signaling that they aren’t interested in doing the Obama administration’s bidding on Obamacare. As a result, many if not most of Obamacare’s insurance exchanges — the heart of the beast — will have to be set up and run by the Obama administration at the federal level.

David Malan

States are not required to set up Obamacare exchanges, but it seems to have surprised observers that many are choosing not to. Politico reports that, with only 17 states so far having said they will set up the exchanges, the “Department of Health and Human Services’s role in bringing the law to life is going to be a lot bigger than originally thought.” More than a third of all states have already said they won’t set up the Obamacare exchanges. Among others, Republican governors Scott Walker, John Kasich, Sam Brownback, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Nikki Haley, Nathan Deal, Paul LePage, Robert Bentley, Mary Fallin, and Sean Parnell have said they’ll refuse to set up the exchanges in their states.

In Missouri, voters took matters into their own hands, approving a ballot measure to vest authority over the decision in the Republican-led state legislature, rather than leaving it up to the Democratic governor. Missouri will not be establishing an exchange. Utah governor Gary Herbert, meanwhile, has opted for a sort of mild civil disobedience, saying that his state will continue to Sebelius gets sneakypursue “our version of an exchange based on defined contribution, consumer choice, and free markets” — a type of exchange that is rather plainly banned by Obamacare.

    Where in the rulebook does it say it’s “either or”?

    They are dirty and they are incompetent–can anyone dispute that?

    Obama and his Politburo

    If Obama didn’t hate the military and fear them carrying weapons here in the states, we would be having military parades every third Tuesday in DC — complete with rockets, missiles, tanks and lots and lots of goose-stepping.

    After January 20th you can bet the Obama regime and his toadie Eric Holder will do an all out assault against individual states and the 10th Amendment!

    Will this be the rallying cry at the Inauguration???

    Seig Heil!

    If the media don’t care about who ordered the stand down that caused Americans to be murdered in Benghazi, this won’t bother them in the least.
    This will never see the light of day anyplace but maybe Fox and talk radio.

    “….Therefore, HHS, under Sebelius’s leadership, suspended work on the firewall and told United-Health Group not to alert the SEC to the purchase — as UnitedHealth Group was legally required to do within four days of the transaction — until after the election….”

    Okay, an SEC law has been broken. Where is the SEC in investigating United Healthcare’s acquisition of QSSI – and the conflict of interest and cronyism that it will uncover?

    O.K. read the whole article and ask yourself, what is the definition of Fascism?

    Among the aspects of the definition is government control of private business. So citizens get to run their businesses, but the government control them when it decides what is in its interest. What Sibalius has done here is just that, seledcted a private entity to carry out the government’s bidding.

    Beside the danger to liberty and individual freedom (which was already surrendered when ObamaCare was created) you have one of the regulated becoming the regulator and a State created monopoly.

    I wonder what shares of UnitedHealthCare are trading at today? Because it sure looks like the Obama Administration is in the process of creating a monopoly with control over 1/6th of our economy. If you think ObamaCare will survive into the future you should BUY, BUY, BUY as much UnitedHealthCare that you can. The best investment (least risk, highest return) is always in the monopoly.

    In case you think I’m fooling around with you, I just looked at UnitedHealthGroup’s (UNH) stock prices for the last year.

    http://investing.money.msn.com/investments/equity-historical-price/?PT=7&D4=1&DD=1&D5=0&DCS=2&MA0=0&MA1=0&CF=0&nocookie=1&SZ=0&symbol=US%3aUNH

    If you had invested in UNH last year at its high of $49.7 your shares would be worth $54.95 on Monday this week. That’s a 10.56% return – for one year’s investment. Can you think of any other company that gave 10.56% one year return?

    UNH has traded as high as $60.75 this last year and has been trading over the $50.00 range since Februrary 2011.

    I think I’m going to shut up now – oh and this is not investment advice, just political observation. So don’t try to sue me if you go all in on the government created monopoly in the making. If and when ObamaCare either fails legally or economicially all bets will be off on UNH.

    I almost got a job at United Health Group a year ago. Now I know why I wasn’t hired; I’m too honest. I wouldn’t have gone along with whatever criminal enterprise they are up to – getting in bed with Obama.
