TRAINWRECK: Megyn Kelly finds out you can’t reason with Democrat Frank Pallone

Megyn Kelly really thought she could interview Frank Pallone, Democrat from New Jersy, and reason with him about how the president misled the American people on keeping their health care plans. But Pallone, a constant spinster, kept saying things that weren’t true and regardless of the proof she gave him, including Sebelius’ own words, Pallone wouldn’t accept it and kept blaming insurance companies for the fact that people are losing their plans.



Kelly looked rather frustrated when the interview was over.

Listen to the narrative shift. Listen to the language. “Lousy”-except that the administration and their Senate lackeys haven’t defined lousy in any concrete terms. They are counting on the inference being drawn that what the government is mandating by force of law is better BECAUSE it is mandated. “Capitalism” -if it were true that these policies were substandard, and that other insurers were entering the marketplace with better coverages under more affordable plans, then wouldn’t people naturally opt in if given the opportunity? Why would force be required? If covering 30 million uninsured people, to keep them from destitution from catastrophic medical loss, were truly the goal, surely there were more economical, less complicated ways to do that. But that is not what is happening. The goal is to provide comprehensive medical coverage, from sniffles to cancer to bypass to…Prozac and birth control. Although, if enough progressives do get their… Read more »

Americans are gonna get better polices now. Obama care created polices that are more affordable with better coverage for millions of americans which causes antiselection against insurance companies on current plans. This means insurance companies have to cancel these polices because the only americans who will sign up for and or not lapse are bad risk individuals. This is simple definition of anti selection. I don’t expect many average americans to get this idea since most can barely add and subtract let alone understand even the basics of the macro economic reactions of the insurance world when regulation is brought into the picture. But at the end of the day. Insurance will be cheaper for millions of americans even if their current policy is no longer kept on the market….the new policy they sign up for will be better than their current one.

Let us deconstruct your central thesis. ObamaCare created policies that are A) more affordable and B) have better coverage. First: Obamacare mandated certain coverages which insurance companies were required to offer in order for their customers to be in compliance with the law. Better coverage: Now, in employer provided medical insurance plans it is my understanding that group medical coverage is generally a bulk rate offering of a set of coverage which all employees are provided regardless of applicability: eg. maternity coverage, or substance abuse coverage (if indeed these were part of the particular package the company purchased). But private individual insurance had, until ObamaCare, far more flexibility and, well, individuality, in the plans people could choose for cost and coverages offered. The new law mandates new requirements across the board affecting both employers’ insurance options AND individual options. These policies aren’t necessarily better, just bigger. Affordability: These mandates, extending… Read more »

So the message of the Democrats (now that they have their talking points all arranged) is that the policies that don’t conform to Obamacare were “lousy policies”. No, they were not. Those policies were fine. The Obamacare rules are forcing Americans to buy lousy policies that mandate converage that many Americans don’t need and don’t want.

Wait, let me get this straight, Pallone is saying the healthcare marketplace under Obamacare that is – 1) devoid of any market forces like supply and demand, and 2) can only compete if the government says you can, and 3) where there is no capitalism just government intrusion – is a competitive capitalistic marketplace!? Where did this guy takes Economics 101? Russia? Bloody Wow!

Agree, Government interference via regulation solely for tax confiscation purposes became the norm as soon as the States signed the Constitution forming the Federal Government. America having started as a free nation,has not been a free market or capitalist marketplace for over a Century of its short 236 years. And that is if outside of the wilderness’ bartering, America ever was.

non affiliated, unbias answer…..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_spiral_(insurance)

this is why they are canceling the policies, not because they are scams but because govt polices are priced with such little margin since they don’t need to make money that anti-selection occurs causing current policy holders to lapse, leaving only those individuals who are terribly high risk and do not qualify or do not want to be underwritten again. This causes the block of insurance polices to become unprofitable…hence they have to cancel the plans all together and create new plans that will not be anti selected against…aka ones that are more competitive and closer to the quality and coverage of the government created plans …..no emotion, just facts

Amaroq

So basically, you’re saying that plans are being canceled because they can’t compete with the government plans being offered?

Makes sense. The government not only doesn’t have to worry about loss, but they also get to keep taking money in via taxes. So this is going to run private insurance out of business and leave only government insurance left.

Debra Blouin

What government plans are you referring to? as far as I am aware, the government isn’t providing insurance. they are mandating insurance under government regulation. Any plan even marginally altered after March of 2010 must comply with coverage mandates contained in ObamaCare. That is why they are being cancelled. ObamaCare isn’t insurance (except for the Medicaid part). There aren’t any government policies (yet, and again except for Medicaid) rather there are regulations governing acceptable policies. The regulation regarding pre-existing conditions should effectively eliminate the insured’s fear of needing to be underwritten again. But this is in fact what will drive insurance costs up. You said in another post that this cancellation approach would result in lower overall insurance costs because, presumably, healthier wealthier (younger?) people entering the insurance market (by force) would offset the bad risk pool. Isn’t that the very presumption which is plaguing the transition to corporatist/state implementation… Read more »

Lets apply this logic to buying a car. The Gov’t doesn’t want you to buy the cheap one you want (grey clothe seats, A/C, AM/FM/CD) because that is cheap and over priced for what you are getting. So you HAVE to buy the better car because it’s a better value (leather, power everything, back up camera, blue tooth, heated mirrors, heated seats, cooled seats, heated steering wheel, auto climate control, black box, remote start, driver information center, programmable driver settings, AWD, Sirius XM radio, Infinity Sound System, custom wheels, Z rated tires, turbo chargers, parking assist, cruise contol….hell ‘auto driver’). To bad you can’t afford it. To bad it cost three times what you make in a year. The gov’t knows what is best for you. Oh, and if you don’t buy that better deal car, they will revoke your license and make it illegal for you to use the… Read more »

Exactly. The big lie in Pallone’s diatribe is when he said the new Obamacare mandated policies are cheaper. They are not. What the progressives want is for all Americans to be forced to buy higher cost policies so that the subsidized group of Americans whom the progressives support are supported by the rest of us.

Debra Blouin

The car analogy is okay. Lets try this one: eating out. What is a better value, a buffet or an a al carte restaurant? Now the knee-jerk automatic reaction is buffet. Look at the volume and variety! Look at the options! It’s a flat rate, you know your costs. BUT, what if you only eat salad? What if you are a vegan, or as I am, a diabetic? My personal choice or dietary needs may make that buffet far less a value than it seems at first glance. A buffet charges the same for every customer, regardless of whether that customer eats salad or prime rib. That is how the restaurant defrays food costs; the salad eater pays for the prime rib eater. Let’s talk volume: one patron might have one plate. Another might have a bite of this on one plate, a bite of this on another, and a… Read more »

He’s dispensing some real poison here. What there’s no admission of here is the government’s role in increasing the costs of the insurance, and when people get kicked off their old plans for that five dollar increase, they wind up shopping in a market that is seriously lacking alternatives and is laced with very expensive, un palatable options. That is not entirely the insurance companies’ doing. That’s what happens when all those preexisting conditions all of a sudden have to be covered for the same price that everybody else is paying.

Ozzy Osgood
Guest
Ozzy Osgood

And what’s worse is that promise Obama kept making didn’t have stated conditions to it, he said you can keep your old insurance, PERIOD. Then his government drafted regulations that imposed ridiculous conditions for keeping it, and more regulations that drove the costs up, which made it impossible for those insurance companies to fulfill those conditions! Result: Sky high premiums and chasm-deep deductibles on the plan you try to find to replace the one you had. Talk about bad faith and they still pretend there’s nothing wrong with the ACA as a plan. The President LIED!!!

“Let the market decide” – if only. WHich would undermine 90% of the Democratic party. They have to saddle the individually insured with 30% disadvantage and have to take extraordinary measures to eliminate individual market, or what remains of it after the ANTI market, uneconomical policies of gov’t. HSAs, individuals who self-insure (AKA take care of themselves, maintain incentives for better health to reduce costs, health care consumption) are the ideal, which gov’t should be encouraging for the country, and with the consensus, figure out how to insure those who can’t insure/ access care, once we’ve allowed markets to function and reduce prices that most people can afford. (there is no efficient trade off for covering ALL people by mandate)
