    Maybe those who have received a letter from their insurance company cancelling their plan or telling them of an increase, should make a copy and mail it directly to

    President Barack Obama
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
    Washington D.C. 20500

    Let’s not only burn up the phone lines, let’s keep the postal service in business for a bit longer. :o)

    • OneThinDime

      Send it to your Reps and BLAME them for funding ObamaCare.

  • Baba Ghanoush

    Look out Kristen, the administration will be gunning for you.

  • she is still an idiot. Kirsten Powers that is!

    • trytothink

      I do appreciate that she’s not a rabid ideologue who can never admit that Democrats do things that aren’t good like a Jehmu Greene or an Alan Colmes.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    There was a report from breitbart that explains how to opt out of Obamacare without paying the penalty, and Rush’s own accountant said that it is possible to opt out of it if you set your tax returns to not receive a refund. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/10/24/How-to-opt-out-of-obamacare-without-paying-the-fine

    • WinMissouri

      This govt will do whatever it wants. I did not see anything in the article as to why he thinks they cannot issue a lien or garnishment. They will send a tax levy to your employer and the employer is required to comply with the tax levy. The employer continues the levy until the IRS sends a release.

      I could be wrong because I have not read the ACA as I want to avoid my head exploding and my eyes bleeding.

      • Laurel

        I don’t recall it being in there that they can issue a lien etc…but who will stop them from doing so? Remember the court said it’s a tax so it would fall under the recovery of a tax. I know of no court in the land, liberal or conservative, that would make it impossible for the government to collect money it is deemed to be owed.

        • demographicallychallenged

          The IRS doesn’t ask for permission.

          • Laurel

            Correct. That is my point.

        • IamPETA

          You’re correct. Because it has been declared a tax, it will be collected as such.
          I asked my CPA about it. I wanted to know if it would be listed on my return as a separate item, so I could pay the income tax owed, but not pay the ACA tax, as a form of protest.
          She said “no, the ACA ‘tax’ will be bundled in with your income tax owed, and you’ll see one number$ only of what is due/owed”

          • Laurel

            That is unfortunate. I’m sorry. I hope you find a way out of paying that.

            • IamPETA

              Nope, there is no way to get around paying it, anymore than there is getting out of paying federal income tax, because John Roberts aided this regime by declaring that the penalty was a tax.
              Any taxpayer who does not have either their own insurance, or has enrolled in ObamaKare….will be forced to pay a penalty, which, as I said…is deemed as a tax (thank you J. Roberts).
              So, if your CPA does your tax return, and finds that you owe say $100 in income tax, and you haven’t bought ins. or enrolled in ObamaKare, and the resulting ‘penalty’ is also $100……then your tax return will show you owe $200 in federal income tax.
              This is why so many of us are so pissed at Roberts…..he declared an unconstitutional ‘penalty’ was really a ‘tax’…….and we all got screwed…..again.

              • Laurel

                Yep. that is on the money!

                BTW…I love your avatar. 🙂

        • OneThinDime

          You are correct it is not in the law but it might be in the IRS regulations to permit liens and seizing from your bank account.

          • Laurel

            I bet it is. I don’t know for sure though but it seems to me others have tried to get around IRS loopholes before and failed miserably.

        • Tony O

          If it is a tax, that’s taxation without representation, as it has never been voted on or approved as a tax.

          • Laurel

            My dear…SCOTUS ruled it a tax. That is how Obamacare has been implemented.

    • demographicallychallenged

      Sadly they know where you live. If you have ever filed a tax return, they have your information. When I applied for SS, they had a 44yr list of my what I had earned, and my employers.

    • OneThinDime

      The gov’t or Obama will change the law to seize funds from your bank acct. Stop ALL direct deposit of refunds and change your bank, close those accounts.

  • BHliberty

    OMG! Kirsten Powers? Really? We all have to pay for everyone else to have healthcare? Really? Just another example of a Democrat who believes in government controlling our lives.

    No, this government was not designed to take care of everyone and why conservatives, like myself, will continue to fight, donate, work the phones, rally, or do anything I can to restore this nation back to the foundation for which we stand. This is not to imply I’m not willing to help those in need! I am and believe that helping people to get on their feet is best done through the church and charities! And it certainly doesn’t imply that some how I’m racist! I’m not!

    Liberals have done an excellent job in their messaging by demonizing people who go against their beliefs. But it’s high time that Republicans and conservatives start a new campaign to educate on what it is they stand for, freedom!

  • CHHR

    Interesting to hear how so many who supported this massive government intrusion had a policy they thought wouldn’t be affected. Minimum coverage has been out there all along… why the shock now?

    BTW when is someone going to report on the more nefarious crap in this law? Like, for example, ‘‘SEC. 2717. ENSURING THE QUALITY OF CARE where we find out folks forced into government provided insurance allows the state Child Protective Services or Family Service to come into your home to “verify” if the family is living a “healthy lifestyle.” (step away from that glass of WINE)

    • badbadlibs

      I just did a search of that section, is this what you’re talking about:

      “Chronic disease management: Disease management is an approach to health care delivery that
      continuously evaluates clinical, humanistic and economic outcomes with the goal of improving overall
      health. Insurers possess data about the health status of its enrollees and therefore have a responsibility
      for meeting their health needs by intervening to help enrollees and providers manage chronic conditions.
      NCQA’s Health Plan Accreditation evaluates insurer disease management program structures and
      processes for identifying and assessing enrollees and developing plans and interventions…”

      • OneThinDime

        This is going to be interesting. There is a push to limit pain medication to ZERO refills because people cannot properly supervise and raise their teenagers and drugs like Vicodin are used to get high. Part of the legislation is to require a DR visit for each prescription with ZERO refills. Talk about skyrocketing costs for those with chronic conditions like nerve issues, back pain, etc.

      • CHHR

        partially, but that sounds rather innocuous… Forgive the cut & paste, but here’s what I was referring to…

        ‘‘(a) QUALITY REPORTING.—

        ‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—Not later than 2 years after the date of enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Secretary, in consultation with experts in health care quality and stakeholders, shall develop reporting requirements for use by a group health plan, and a health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage, with respect to plan or coverage benefits and health care provider reimbursement structures that—
        ‘‘(A) improve health outcomes through the implementation of activities such as quality reporting, effective case management, care coordination, chronic disease management, and medication and care compliance initiatives, including through the use of the medical homes model as defined for purposes of section 3602 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, for treatment or services under the plan or coverage;

        ‘‘(B) implement activities to prevent hospital readmissions through a comprehensive program for hospital discharge that includes patient-centered education and counseling, comprehensive discharge planning, and post discharge reinforcement by an appropriate health care professional;

        ‘‘(2) REPORTING REQUIREMENTS.—

        ‘‘(A) IN GENERAL.—A group health plan and a health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall annually submit to the Secretary, and to enrollees under the plan or coverage, a report on whether the benefits under the plan or coverage satisfy the elements described in subparagraphs (A)through (D) of paragraph (1).

        ‘‘(B) TIMING OF REPORTS.—A report under subparagraph (A) shall be made available to an enrollee under the plan or coverage during each open enrollment period.

        ‘‘(C) AVAILABILITY OF REPORTS.—The Secretary shall make reports submitted under subparagraph (A) available to the public through an Internet website ‘‘(D) PENALTIES.—In developing the reporting requirements under paragraph (1), the Secretary may develop and impose appropriate penalties for non-compliance with such requirements.

        ‘‘(E) EXCEPTIONS.—In developing the reporting requirements under paragraph (1), the Secretary may provide for exceptions to such requirements for group health plans and health insurance issuers that substantially meet the goals of this section.

        ‘‘(b) WELLNESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMS.—For purposes of subsection (a)(1)(D), wellness and health promotion activities may include personalized wellness and prevention services, which are coordinated, maintained or delivered by a health care provider, a wellness and prevention plan manager, or a health, wellness or prevention services organization that conducts health risk assessments or offers ongoing face-to-face, telephonic or web

        In Section 3602, we find the program was block funded to the states to the tune of $125 Million in 2010 to set these programs up & are coordinated using “Health Extension Agents” (means any local, community-based health worker who facilitates and provides assistance to primary care practices by implementing quality improvement or system redesign, incorporating the principles of the patient-centered medical home to provide high-quality, effective, efficient, and safe primary care and to provide guidance to patients in culturally and linguistically appropriate ways, and linking practices to diverse health system resources.)

  • colliemum

    This is what gets me every time when the nice, well-off do-gooders warble about how they’d happily pay more if it helps others, like Kirsten Powers did: they thus give the government the ‘right’ to take from everybody they deem to be well off.
    If Ms Powers wants to help others – why can’t she do it privately? It’s called ‘charity’, and it’s what we do. We don’t need the State to do it for us, with most of that money sticking to bureaucrats hands.

    There’s some research showing that the more government takes from us to give to “The Poor”, the less people give to charities, because on the one hand, they think it’s no longer necessary, and on the other because they haven’t got any money left: the government has taken it away.

    Another little known fact is that here in the UK, a few years after ‘free’ healthcare was instituted in 1948, the NHS was already running out of money, and the government had to introduce charges for prescriptions, for glasses, for dental care.
    When people have been told something is ‘free’, they take advantage, and even demand a prescription for aspirin even though they could buy it OTT. And let’s not even mention the health tourists from all over the world who come here because ‘it’s free’.

    The day is not far away when the whole welfare system in all our countries will come crashing down because those who work and pay taxes cannot support it any longer.
    What will the Kirsten Powers’ of this world do then?

    • Laurel

      Thank you. You beat me to it. that was going to be my next post.

      • colliemum

        GMTA!

    • Mike Bittner

      Just wait until when the dollar is no longer the standard….you think the Civil War was bad? Pffft!

  • Laurel

    Why is no one asking why the same group of people are being required to cover the high risk, the ‘I want everything for free’, and the elderly?!

    With only half of the country working where is the money going to come from? Now remember these extra requirements in coverage of groups and wish lists is on top of the money swiped out of Medicare. What that means is the accounting of these programs is far worse than previously thought.

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      And how many doctors are going to drop Medicare patients because reimbursement would be reduced? Hardly any doctors take MedicAid and that would likely become the case for the elderly and disabled on Medicare too.

      • Laurel

        Oh they are dropping like crazy already. Some are even being dropped by Medicare because they don’t meet the Obamacare requirements. Soon they will take more taxes to send people to med school to feed the Obamacare beast. We will be forced to subsidize our own demise by putting through school government workers that are from the lowest common denominator.

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          It’s like a nightmare going on and on that we hope will end, but we’re horribly awake!

          I know a female physician, Catholic, Obama supporter. I wonder how she will feel when told she has to provide abortion services as part of ObamaCare and to be certified to provide care.

            That is a good question. Let me know if you ever get an answer.

  • timerunnersc

    @counter 0:56 Kristen said the administration says your young, your healthy so your gonna see your premiums go up.

  • dudley76

    And of course, the biggest point that was missed, is that going from an EPO plan to an HMO plan with a scaled-down provider network, gives the 2014 individual market insured’s access to fewer doctors and hospitals. Indeed, all health insurance plans are NOT created equal.

  • armyvet10

    First….good luck getting this administration to tell the truth , or explain anything they have done that has failed. We are all still waiting for the reason why all of the green energy companies that Obama backed failed. Secondly, Ms. Powers hints that she is willing to pay more so others can be covered. The whole Affordable Health Care act had to be designated as a tax for it to be constitutional, if paying more taxes would help the problem, then why hasn’t the Great Society movement, championed by the Democrat party in the early 60s, solved our poverty issues? If fairness is what greedy politicians really wanted, they would have done away with the current tax code and instilled a flat tax rate. People like Mr. Buffet who whines and cries about paying more would do just that, pay more. This and most other laws have been designed for control, not fairness. The tax laws here in America have nothing to do with fairness and everything to do with control of people’s money and freedoms. The elites, (Politicians) will never try and work towards fairness because they would have to be subject to their own rules and laws…probably the biggest reason most politicians have refused to go on Obama care.

  • badbadlibs

    Try an extra 250.00 PER MONTH, Kirsten! Since you STILL support this disaster, job killing, health coverage killing abomination, how about YOU pay MY 250.00 per month extra. You’re willing to pay extra to help out, right, Kirsten! She wouldn’t put her money where her mouth is for anything, she’s a liberal.

    • clockwindingdown

      Maybe she could try paying the extra $140 per month once her hours and therefore her pay gets cut to less then 30 hours a week, maybe then she would gladly pay more…

      Once again we see, “well I still like bocare, I don’t really trust them but what the hey…” How dumb does one have to get before the light comes on or they quit breathing?

        • clockwindingdown

          You know what gets me is this country has had social programs like this for half a decade or more. Most designed to help the “less fortune”, yet there is a growing number and percentage of people on these programs with no end or limit to these programs. Talk about unsustainable!

          I would love to hear the subject matter change to when are we going actually start help these people, because these existing programs are not helping they are hurting people.

          So what is the “dems” plan to actually help, because based on results their track record is zero, nada, zip, nothing!

          Based off history we should try something else, in fact a complete reversal of policies, give folks sometime to get trained/educated and then have at it. These folks on the dole cannot be living their lives dream, everyone has a dream, certainly theirs is not to live in someone else’s dwelling, waiting for food stamps, watching maury and oprah!

          We know the lefts end goal but maybe we ought to explain it better to those that are enslaved. Is this really how they see their lives? No future change just what they are doing today for the rest of their lives waiting for the check to arrive?

          Sorry for the rant… I am so tired of the left destroying everything it touches and claiming they are helping while ruining lives as fast they can go. There are some folks that really need help, but the number is very low, certainly not nearly half of Our Country!

  • kong1967

    Crappy plans have been made illegal? Crappy for who? People buy what plan best fits their situation and their pocket book. Forcing them to buy a plan that covers a bunch of things they don’t want is a crappy plan.

    To Joe Manchin, who happens to be about the only Democrat with half a brain, it can’t be fixed. If you fix it, it collapses. Democrats made a huge mistake raping people WITH plans to make it cheaper for those who can’t afford a plan. When the price of any product goes up, demand goes down. When people drop off and decide to just pay the fine it will increase the load for others with plans….which increases price and causes more drop off. It’s a death spiral.

      I’m glad Texas declined Medicaid Expansion. It may sound hateful but I do not believe those that can work should get free insurance. Medicaid isn’t really a very good program.

          I’ve known he is a POS for a long time. Read this article from 2009.

          Updated Aug. 27, 2009 12:52 p.m. ET

          Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, health adviser to President Barack Obama, is under scrutiny. As a bioethicist, he has written extensively about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth
          saving. Dr. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

          The health bills being pushed through Congress put
          important decisions in the hands of presidential appointees like Dr. Emanuel. They will decide what insurance plans cover, how much leeway your doctor will have, and what seniors get under Medicare. Dr. Emanuel,brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, has already been
          appointed to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of the Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. He clearly will play a role guiding the White House’s health initiative.

        And I bet he is counting on just that.

  • Molly

    I had to make the choice this year to either help my elderly parents with their expenses, or buy insurance for my family. It was a no brainer–my parents aren’t making enough to live on and they have to have help. So we are doing without family insurance. If Kirsten Powers wants her $150 to help people, she is free to give it to whoever she thinks she can help, but to take my money for her cause as well and thus take away my ability to help those who depend on me, is evil, not good.

  • Dr. Strangelove

    For the past 5 years anyone criticizing Obama for any reason has been demeaned & humiliated. We’re all “racists” because we never believed the community organizer from Chi-town. All of this was foretold. There are no surprises here! As Nancy Pelosi stood before the House saying “we have to pass it to know what’s in it!” The opposition was foretelling a future of insurance premiums skyrocketing, individuals losing coverage because their current policies didn’t meet gov’t regs, etc. WE KNEW ALL OF THIS, and did absolutely nothing to stop it. The President & his cohorts have walked all over the constitution of this country and we let him. Not a single lawsuit has been filed, no criminal charges brought for flagrantly ignoring the law. WE ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN!

  • Icarus27k

    Megyn Kelly found one minor claim that Pres. Obama made and focused almost exclusively on it. “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” wasn’t near the most important promises relating to Obamacare. “Obamacare will reduce the number of uninsured people in the U.S. by tens of millions” and “Obamacare will ban insurance companies from dropping consumers because of preexisting conditions” are still 100% true. And 100% more important than what Kelly thinks is important.

    • MrSmithInDC

      you obviously don’t have a doctor.

    • shadetree56

      obozocare will INCREASE the number of uninsured – watch the clips before you spout your DNC talking points.

      • Icarus27k

        The ACA was signed into law in spring 2010, and the total number of uninsured people in the US has already declined in 2 and a half years. Yes, the ACA will reduce the number of uninsured people in the US.

        • shadetree56

          wrong – more people have LOST there policies – then have signed up for odumbocare. what’s gonna be your excuse as this trend continues? BTW – the CBO reported 2 years ago that the total number of uninsured will stay the same – or even increase under the law.

          • Icarus27k

            From the Census Bureau:

            Percentage of people in the U.S. uninsured in 2010: 16.3%
            Total number of uninsured in 2010: 49.9 million

            Percentage of people in the U.S. uninsured in 2012: 15.4%
            Total number of uninsured in 2012: 48.0 million

            Changes -0.9%, -1.9 million
            Yes Virginia, there has been a decline in the number of uninsured in the US since the ACA has been law.

            • twmon9816

              Yeah einstein, the majority are signing up for medicare, odumbocare not so much.

              • Icarus27k

                I’m hardly Einstein, but the Medicaid expansion IS a part of Obamacare. I realize “Obamacare” is a sloppy, relative term that critics made up, but yes, the much needed Medicaid expansion is a part it and it will indeed reduce the number of uninsured people in the U.S. a lot.

                Curiously, the Medicaid expansion IS NOT why the rate of uninsured has gone down so far though. Another Obamacare provision (the under 26 provision) is what has lead the decline in uninsured so far.

                Obamacare = lower number of uninsured, especially poor uninsured people.

                Facts all.

      Of course, I have to excuse myself. I am Orewellian, read 1984, so I already knew that just about every government agency and program achieves the opposite of its STATED purpose.

      • Icarus27k

        Yes, there were 50 million uninsured people in the U.S. in 2010, and Obamacare will reduce that by tens of millions. In fact it already has reduced some. In 2011-12, the number of uninsured went down by 1.9 million. Most of the decline I from Obamacare’s provision that young people can stay on their parents’ insurance plans until they are 26, a provision that went into effect in 2010.

    In spite of the fact that she’s been impacted by the lie and manipulation of the Commie in Chief, she’s still a believer – she’s motivated NOT TO BELIEVE what she sees before her eyes. Hell, she’s even willing to pay more.

    Bottom line-if people had purchased insurance when they were financially able to and the country wasn’t full of lazy people who don’t want to work and people who refuse to take care of their body, this would not be an issue and obamacare would have never been more than a fart in the wind.

    Everyone wants to blame someone else. The fact is we brought this on ourselves by either wanting a free ride or not electing better people to office to prevent this from happening. In other words-no accountability.

    The govt and Obama haven’t did anything right yet, If Obamacare is suppose to be so great then why aren’t the politicians in D.C.signing up for it and it’s being forced upon the american people, I don’t trust liars and thats what you got in Washington

    • Icarus27k

      The idea that DC politicians have to sign up for anything is one of the biggest myths of the recent Obamacare debate. Members of Congress, the President, and their staffs are like the majority of Americans: they already have health insurance through their jobs. So they are like the majority of Americans in terms of insurance both before, and after, Obamacare. There’s certainly isn’t any kind of special deal in Obamacare like how some recent critics have liked to loudly proclaim.

      Read PolitiFact’s slamming of the claim that Congress is exempt (PolitiFact ruled the claim “false”):

    I am thoroughly convinced that Obamacare has very little to do with healthcare–it’s just a foot in the door so government will control healthcare. Next it will be single payer healthcare where government will provide their version of care to everyone, under their terms and conditions.

  • RonPaulSupporter2

    Before anyone jumps down my throat for what I’m about to say, let me first say this…
    I believe (despite the Supreme Court’s ruling) that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional, should never have been put in place, and should now be repealed and not replaced with anything!

    That being said, I question where Ms. Kelly got her numbers from about how many people have been dropped from coverage. Although she might be correct I wish these people like her would at least say or show the source of their data.

    It’s not hard to say in this day and age that there are a lot of organizations out there that make claims and back it up with “data”. However, we all know that there are organizations on both sides of the political aisle that have agendas and will “spin”, “twist”, and manipulate data to produce the results they want to align with their agenda.

    We have a serious problem in the US with a lack of truth from politicians, the media, and political pundits and commentators. I sincerely hope that at some point down the road that truth will be the order of the day no matter what side of the political fence they’re on.

    • DonaldYoungsRevenge

      I was so very disappointed with Ron Paul. He ran around the country campaigning to win the nomination for POTUS as a man who loves the Constitution and yet he remained silent about the Constitutional scandal of the century or perhaps the history of our Constitutional Republic. That scandal was the ineligibility of Barack Hussein Obama. Ron Paul did have a cold day in hell chance of winning and he should have spent some campaign time offering his platform to expose the fraudulent and criminal activity of Barack Hussein Obama. All he had to do was have Jerome Corsi brief him as to the evidence that proved that Obama was a fraud. When the left wing nut birthers questioned John McCain’s “natural born Citizen” status all Paul had to do was demand the same for Obama. It would have been the end of Obama because he does not have a legitimate American birth certificate. The Obama nightmare would have ended in its tracks. Paul punked out with the rest of the Republicans, including John McCain.

      • RonPaulSupporter2

        OK. Maybe you’re right but with all due respect what does what you say have to do with the topic of this post?

If I’m correct, than is it not possible that a right leaning organization can misrepresent “the facts” just as easily as a left leaning organization?

            Yes, I’m also from NJ and I basically agree with you.

            However, because I don’t call myself a liberal or conservative and believe that BOTH sides are guilty of obscuring facts to back up their arguments, I’m always looking for multiple sources of information and want to know something about the organizations that it comes from.

            As I said in my first post, despite the SCOTUS ruling, I still believe the ACA is un-Constitutional and will most definitely never change my mind on that. That being said, I’m sure by just dumb luck or pure circumstance, there may be a number of people that truly benefit from it and those are the ones the liberal media will parade in front of the public. The same holds true for conservative media who will parade out those that have had everything go against them with the ACA. The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle as to it’s effectiveness, but I still believe it’s un-Constitutional.

            Thanks for the reply.
