White House Orders Health Insurance Companies to Not Criticize Obamacare

thCA2EJQL8By:  J. D. Heyes

Just how cynical and oppressive is the administration of President  Barack Obama? Just ask the CEOs of some of the nation’s health insurance  companies.

According to one CNN reporter, they will tell you that  the current regime is so adamant about controlling the narrative surrounding the  Obamacare disaster that they have even taken to issuing threats.

During a  recent segment on network star Anderson Cooper’s “360” program, reporter Drew  Griffin said that insurance companies have been told by regime operatives to  “keep quiet” about the fact that millions of Americans are being informed that,  contrary to Obama’s promise, they won’t be able to keep their current plans at  current prices and deductible levels.

“Basically, if you speak out, if  you are quoted, you’re going to get a call from the White House, pressure to be  quiet. Several sources tell me and my colleague Chris Frates that insurance  executives are being told to keep quiet,” said Griffin.

He added:  “Sources (are) telling us they fear White House retribution.”

‘Despite  all the rhetoric, you can’t keep your plan

Fear White House  retribution. Can you even fathom that this is happening in the United States  of America? And yet, according to these seasoned reporters, it  is.

As summarized by InfoWars.com‘s Paul Joseph  Watson:

The fact that the White House is threatening private companies  with undisclosed forms of “retribution” if they criticize government policy is a  shocking display of authoritarianism that wouldn’t look out of place in  countries like Communist China or Stalinist North Korea.

As Griffin  explains in his report, the Obama administration is trying to keep a lid on the  dirty little secret that millions of Americans are losing their coverage as a  result of Obamacare, illustrating how Obama blatantly lied when he made  assurances that people could keep their existing policy.

That the  president lied his behind off is becoming more and more well-known as more and  more insurance companies  cancel plans that no longer meet the legal requirements set forth in the  “Affordable” Care Act.

The law calls for all health insurance plans to  meet a certain set of minimum standards of coverage (including a requirement  that single men must carry maternity coverage – a gaggle  of coverage requirements that are often more than Americans want, need or can  afford.

Here is the pertinent exchange between Cooper and  Griffin:

COOPER: So, I mean, what specifically are, do they say  they’re being told to keep quiet about?

GRIFFIN: About the fact  that clarifications were made to the Affordable Care Act after the law was  passed, and those clarifications are forcing the insurance industry to drop  insurance plans that do not meet Obamacare requirements. There is a lot of  coverage now required in these plans that was not part of many people’s private  healthcare plans. Those are the people, Anderson, who are being dropped. And  despite all the rhetoric, I should say, from the president, you simply cannot  keep your current healthcare plan if it does not meet these requirements.  Laszewski says the insurance industry is embarrassed about cancelling the plans,  but in an interview last week, he told me the administration was warned about  this very scenario and ignored the advice.

They knew this was  coming

In addition, Griffin suggested that insurance companies were  adhering to the White  House gag order because, “It is the federal government that’s the biggest  customer for these insurance companies.”

That is true. The Centers for  Medicare and Medicare spend more than $1 trillion a year on health care services  for beneficiaries [http://www.cnsnews.com]. That is more than defense, food  stamps and transportation projects combined.

Bottom line: Not only  did the president and his minions lie for years about Americans being  able to keep their coverage if they liked it, they knew well in advance  that the provisions of the law would not allow them to do so.

And now  they don’t want insurance companies spilling the beans.

Does that sound  like a free country to you?
