UnitedHealth Group to Exit Obamacare Exchanges in All but a ‘Handful’ of States

HOW’S THAT OBAMACARE HOPEY, CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA AMERICA?

UnitedHealth Group plans to withdraw from many Obamacare exchanges leaving them only in a handful of states. Due to tremendous loses UnitedHealth plans to withdraw from health insurance marketplaces in Arkansas, Michigan, Connecticut and parts of Georgia. They are expected to lose $650 million in the exchanges in 2016 and due to these deep loses may leave the Obamacare exchanges altogether in 2017. We warned you from the outset of this fool-hearty, government take over of healthcare that Obamacare was a lie and affordable. The fact that Obamacare is really called the Affordable Health Care Act may just be one of the greatest lies and hoaxes every perpetrated on the American People. Recently insurance carriers warned that Obamacare was unsustainable.

As the Right Wing News opines, “If only someone had predicted this …”.

UnitedHealth Group, the nation’s largest health insurer, said Tuesday that in 2017 it will exit most of the 34 states where it offers plans on the Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges.

“We will be down to a handful of states that we will be actively participating in the exchanges,” Stephen J. Hemsley, chief executive officer of UnitedHealth Group said in an earnings call, noting that the small market size and greater expense of patients insured through the marketplaces led the insurer to make the decision.

UnitedHealth plans to withdraw from health insurance marketplaces in Arkansas, Michigan, Connecticut and parts of Georgia. The decision is a sequel to an announcement by executives late last year that the insurer had suffered financial losses and might leave the health exchanges altogether in 2017. UnitedHealth reported that it expects to lose $650 million in the exchanges in 2016.

Prior to the call, the Obama Administration attempted to downplay any departures from UnitedHealth.

Hypocrite Barack Obama Dismayed by Vulgarity, Violence and Divisive Rhetoric of Campaign … Flashback 2008 Obama Says, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

THE HYPOCRITE IN CHIEF BARACK OBAMA … LIAR!!!

Isn’t this rich, the most divisive president on modern times is calling out others and stated that he was dismayed by “vulgar and divisive rhetoric” directed at women and minorities as well as the violence that has occurred in the 2016 presidential campaign. REALLY? Because Obama has been the virtue of nice and togetherness. Obama has never called for violence or uttered anything either as a presidential candidate or as president now, has he? But once again Obama preaches to us when he has done worse. He states that we have allowed this to go on and turned a blind eye. Maybe he just needs to look in the mirror.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday he was dismayed by “vulgar and divisive rhetoric” directed at women and minorities as well as the violence that has occurred in the 2016 presidential campaign, a swipe at Republican front-runner Donald Trump that also served as a challenge to other political leaders to speak out and set a better example.

“The longer that we allow the political rhetoric of late to continue and the longer that we tacitly accept it, we create a permission structure that allows the animosity in one corner of our politics to infect our broader society,” Obama said. “And animosity breeds animosity.”

Once again we are witness to the politics of Barack Obama where we are supposed to forget his vile rhetoric and only focus on the present.  Flashback to when Barack Hussein Obama was a candidate and the divisive and violent rhetoric he was spewing. It was Obama who told his minions during the 2008 presidential candidate … “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” REALLY? I wonder what the MSM would do if Trump said the same thing?

President Obama, who as a candidate once urged supporters to “bring a gun” to the knife fight of his campaign, on Tuesday decried “vicious” rhetoric from Republican presidential candidates.

“As a citizen who will still be leading this office, I will not support somebody who practices that kind of politics,” the president said.

But as a candidate for the White House in 2008, Mr. Obama was no stranger to violent rhetoric. He encouraged the notion that he was a product of Chicago’s particularly tough brand of politics.

At a campaign event in Philadelphia in June 2008, Mr. Obama told supporters, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Later that year, as polls showed a close race between Mr. Obama and Republican nominee John McCain, Mr. Obama urged a crowd of about 1,500 at a campaign rally in Elko, Nevada, to get confrontational in their community for him.

“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors,” Mr. Obama said. “I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

US Supreme Court Halts President Obama’s Climate Change Initiative 5-4

BIG BLOW TO BARACK OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE …

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations that is part of his global warming climate change initiative. 27 states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab” and that the regulations would greatly increase energy costs and put some of their industries out of business.  Appellate arguments are set to begin June 2, 2016. Thankfully, the SCOTUS put a hold on anything going forward as Powerline opines, “Obama’s EPA was betting that the slow legal process would mean that they’d have a lot of things in place, and many utilities would have complied with the EPA’s dictates, before the law was settled at the Supreme Court.”

A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.

In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.

The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab.”

By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.

The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.

The plan aims to stave off the worst predicted impacts of climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions at existing power plants by about one-third by 2030.

“We disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision to stay the Clean Power Plan while litigation proceeds,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.Earnest said the administration’s plan is based on a strong legal and technical foundation, and gives the states time to develop cost-effective plans to reduce emissions. He also said the administration will continue to “take aggressive steps to make forward progress to reduce carbon emissions.”

Internal Memos Show Barack Obama Bullied Ally Bank to Pay Racial Settlement Without Proof

WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM A COMMUNITY AGITATOR?

The New York Post is reporting that newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign. Well doesn’t this look like an Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson race baiting shakedown? They would be proud. Hell, the mob would be proud. Then again, is Obama anything any different? This president has done more to harm race relations in this country. Imagine that, seeing that most misguided individuals voted for him to do just the opposite. SHAMEFUL, SIMPLY SHAMEFUL.

Newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign that’s looking more like a massive government extortion and shakedown operation.

So far, Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has reached more than $220 million in settlements with several auto lenders since the agency launched its anti-discrimination crusade against the industry in 2013. Several other banks are under active investigation.

That’s despite the fact that the CFPB had no actual complaints of racial discrimination — it was all just based on half-baked statistics.

A confidential 23-page internal report detailing CFPB’s strategy for going after lenders shows why these companies are forking over millions of dollars in restitution and fines to the government despite denying any wrongdoing.

The high-level memo, sent by top CFPB civil-rights prosecutors to the bureau’s director and revealed by a House committee, admits their methods for proving discrimination were seriously flawed from the start and had little chance of holding up in court. Yet they figured they could muscle Ally, as well as future defendants, with threats and intimidation.

Let’s hope that America can survive the damage that has been inflicted upon it and its people during this terrible Obama presidency.

Obama Lied Again: State Department Announces 18 Emails Exchanged Between Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama Will Be Withheld

FLASHBACK: DIDN’T OBAMA SAY HE NEVER NEW OF HILLARY’S PRIVATE EMAIL AND SERVER … State Department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Hillary Clinton and President Obama are going to be withheld.

The Liar in Chief strikes again …  In the latest document dump of Hillary Clinton emails we not only learned that there were even more top secret emails on her private server, something that Hillary claimed did not exist, but we also learned that the State Department is withholding 18 emails between Clinton and President Barack Obama. Wait a minute, what do you mean there were 18 emails between Obama and Clinton? I thought Barack Obama back in March 2015 told CBS News, when this scandal hit, that he learned about this story at the same time as the rest of America did? When previously asked when he learned of the revelation of Hillary’s private emails to conduct work as his Secretary of State Obama’s response was, “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.” LIAR!!! How exactly does one send emails as the President of the United States to his Secretary of State and not notice that the email address does not end in .gov? Yup, Obama kied again and knew all along that Hillary Clinton was using a private email to conduct government business and did nothing about it. More from the most transparent administration ever.

The liar in chief stated when he learned of Hillary Clinton’s use of emails outside the government system  …
“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”

The State Department on Friday said for the first time that “top secret” material had been sent through Hillary Clinton’s private computer server, and that it would not make public 22 of her emails because they contained highly classified information.

The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release. The department’s spokesman, John Kirby, said that exchanges did not involve classified information.

The disclosure of the top secret emails, three days before Iowans vote in the first-in-the-nation caucuses, is certain to fuel the political debate over the unclassified computer server that Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, kept in her home. The State Department released another set of her emails on Friday night in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Neither Mr. Kirby nor other officials would discuss the emails now being withheld, but the classified emails include those cited in a letter sent to the Senate on Jan. 14 by the inspector general of the nation’s intelligence agencies, I. Charles McCullough III.

Mr. McCullough wrote that “several dozen emails” contained classified information, including some now determined to contain information at the “top secret/S.A.P.” level. That designation refers to “special access programs,” which are among the government’s most closely guarded secrets.

Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry Says … Funds From Iran Sanctions Relief Could End Up In Terrorists’ Hands

WELCOME TO THE NOT SO SAFE WORLD OF OBAMA IN WONDERLAND …  REMEMBER WHEN A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES PURPOSE WAS TO ACT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF WE THE PEOPLE, NOT THE MULLAHS OF IRAN?

Barack Obama White House and Secretary of State John Kerry both admit that some of the $100′s of billions of unfrozen Iranian assets could find its way to support terrorism. In other words, Barack Obama and John Kerry just negotiated a deal to fund terrorism against the United States. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? These same people will provide you with the twisted logic that the United States and its allies are now safer because of an Iranian nuclear deal, that most rational people know and understand that Iran will never keep its word, and having paid Iran billions, knowing that some of it will go to support and sponsor terrorism.

These people should be jailed for treason. They actually just admitted that they have funded terrorism. So if an individual person does it or is accused of it, they are arrested, thrown in jail, tried, founds guilty and imprisoned. But if Obama does it, he is hailed as a hero. Who is buying this BS?

“I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that could be prevented, but I can tell you this, right now, we are not seeing the early delivery of funds going to that kind of endeavor at this point in time. I’m sure at some point some of it will, but that has never made the difference of what is happening there.”

“The only observation we’ve made on how they would spend the money is the observation from the secretary of state that it certainly seems possible, if not likely, that they will use some of those funds to support acts of terrorisms,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest added later in the day. “That possibility certainly exists.”

WSJ: American Tax Dollars for the Mullahs.

What a sick, twisted America we live in under the Obama regime. It took Barack Obama and his band of woefully ignorant and all too willing cronies to pay off Iran and the mullahs; however, the American hostages held in Iran got butkis as the State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.

 Ali Khamenei congratulated Iran’s diplomats on Tuesday for making the “front of arrogance and bullying”—that would be the U.S.—retreat. Iran’s Supreme Leader has good reason to be happy. Having preserved the core of his nuclear capabilities, his regime is now on the receiving end of a financial windfall.

Take the financial component of the nuclear accord that took formal effect on Saturday. In addition to lifting most sanctions and releasing more than $100 billion in frozen Iranian assets, the Obama Administration over the weekend agreed to pay the mullahs a separate $1.7 billion to settle an Iranian claim dating to the 1970s.

That amount includes a $400 million trust fund used by the Shah to purchase American arms before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, plus $1.3 billion in interest. You can argue whether the trust fund properly belongs to the regime that overthrew the Shah, but at least that $400 million was originally Iranian money.

The $1.3 billion interest payment will come from U.S. taxpayers, which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claims “was fixed at a reasonable rate of interest.” Maybe so, but it happens that $1.7 billion is also the amount at issue in a case brought by American victims of Iranian terrorism against the Central Bank of Iran. The plaintiffs include victims and survivors of the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing and the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, among other Iranian-directed atrocities.

Yet President Obama and Mr. Kerry didn’t press for fair settlements for these victims as part of the nuclear deal and now seem to be pre-emptively reimbursing Tehran for its potential losses from the claims. The State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.

“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” Out Today … Go Watch It … Movie Reignites ‘Stand-Gown’ Order Debate .. “Hillary Is a Liar!” (VIDEO)

MAKE IT A POINT TO SEE  THIS MOVIE THIS WEEK AND BRING YOUR HILLARY CLINTON LIBERAL SUPPORTING FRIENDS …

Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is set to be released everywhere on Friday. This is a must see movie. As stated at the Politico, the new Benghazi movie reignites ‘stand-down’ order debate. Sorry, if I happen to believe the people who actually were there as opposed to the pathetic, rotten lying politicians trying to cover the collective asses of Barack Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Our governments action with regards to the terror attacks in Benghazi will forever be a low-point in America history where those in power just left Americans to die and then blamed the radical Islamist terror attack on a tape. Shame on them and shame on the media for covering up the story.

The creators of a new Hollywood blockbuster about the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack are renewing the politically explosive allegation that commandos called to defend the U.S. compound were told to “stand down” — a claim Democrats say has no basis in fact.

With Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” set to premiere Thursday, the five surviving members of the six-man Benghazi security team have blitzed the airwaves to promote the film and renew their assertion that a top CIA officer delayed them from immediately answering State Department distress calls. Three even testified to the same before the House Select Committee on Benghazi last spring, several sources have confirmed to POLITICO.

“There is no sensationalism in that: We were told to ‘stand down,’” said former Special Forces Officer Kris Paronto, one of the CIA contractors who fought that night, in an interview with Politico. “Those words were used verbatim — 100 percent. … If the truth of it affects someone’s political career? Well, I’m sorry. It happens.”

Pat Smith, mother of State Department official Sean Smith who was murdered at the Benghazi Consulate on 9-11-3012, screamed out, “Hillary is a liar!” after watching the movie ’13 Hours.’

The Gateway Pundit:

Pat Smith joined Megyn Kelly tonight after attending the opening of ’13 Hours’ last night in Dallas, Texas.

She sobbed as she told Megyn about the movie.

I left as soon as Sean came on screen, or the person who portrayed him. I couldn’t handle it. HILLARY IS A LIAR! I know what she told me!

Smith was referring to Hillary’s bogus claims that a YouTube video was behind the deadly attacks.

Pat Smith later said she wants Hillary in jail.

Taya Kyle, Wife of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle,T Provides An Amazing and Strong Defense of Gun Rights (VIDEO)

Taya Kyle, Wife of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle stole the show at Barack Obama’s grab all the guns Town Hall …

Watch the VIDEO below from Barack Obama’s grab all the guns Town Hall and see Taya Kyle, the widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle school Obama on gun rights and the American people’s right to defense themselves and right to bear arms. SIMPLY AMAZING!!!

WAPO:

Taya Kyle, the widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, who was shot and killed while helping fellow soldiers readjust to life back home, was the first audience member to be given the microphone, and her question really got to the heart of gun-rights advocates’ objections to Obama’s efforts.

“We’re at an all-time low for murder rate, but I think most of us in this country feel like it could happen at any moment,” she said. “It’s not necessarily that I think someone’s going to come take my gun from me, but I want the hope, the hope that I have the right to protect myself.”

Kyle cited declining national murder statistics and asked the president: “Why not celebrate where we are … celebrate that we’re good people, and 99.9 percent of us are never going to kill anyone?”

It wasn’t just the question – as composed and informed as it was – it was the person asking it. Kyle is the wife of a former U.S. Navy SEAL who is perhaps the most famous American military sharpshooter in history– not to mention a victim of gun violence himself.

House of Representatives Passes ObamaCare Repeal and Sends it to President … VETO Expected

The House of Representatives passes legislation yesterday that would repeal much of Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood for one year. The bill passed by a vote of 240 to 181 margin and was sent to Barack Obama, who is most certainly going to veto it. The GOP does not appear to have enough votes override a veto. It makes one wonder then, why did the Republicans bend over to Obama and provide him with a budget just recently that funded all of Obamacare, Planned Parenthood and the rest of his liberal agenda? Is anyone in Washington, DC looking out for “We the People”? It is the first time in 5 years that the GOP has put a bill forward on the desk of Obama that repeals Obamacare.

The House on Wednesday passed legislation that would repeal much of ObamaCare and defund Planned Parenthood for one year, sending the measure to President Obama’s desk.

The bill passed by a vote of 240 to 181. Rep. Collin Peterson (Minn.), who opposes abortion, was the only Democrat to vote for the measure. Reps. Bob Dold (Ill.), Richard Hanna (N.Y.) and John Katko (R-N.Y.), who all hail from swing districts, were the only Republicans to vote against it.

Obama is certain to veto the measure, but Republicans touted the vote as important step toward reversing the Affordable Care Act and the expansion of government it created.

“We are confronting the president with the hard, honest truth: ObamaCare doesn’t work,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday.

Republicans were able to get the repeal bill through the Senate, where Democrats had filibustered previous efforts, by using a fast-track process known as reconciliation that allows the bill to pass with a simple majority.

Democrats denounced the measure on the House floor, repeatedly invoking the roughly 16 million people enrolled in ObamaCare programs.

The GOP better do a lot more than just put bills in front of the President. They best come up with alternatives and provide a choice for Americans.

FOX News Host Andrea Tantaros Responded to Obama’s Gun Control Tears … I Would Check the Podium for a Raw Onion or Some “No More Tears.”

HMM, WAS THERE AN ONION ON THE STAGE OR WAS IT JUST TEARS OF A CLOWN …

FOX News Host Andrea Tantaros responded to Barack Obama’s tears on gun control by saying,  I would check that podium for a raw onion or some “No More Tears.” It’s not really believable. On Outnumbered, watch the VIDEO where all of the cast respond to Obama’s comments and his continued divisive nature. But once again in a time when Americans are fearful terrorism, want to defend themselves and respect the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution while Obama mocks all who do not agree with his liberal agenda.

Really, after all this time, this lame duck president is making this an issue as if he cares?

FOX News host Andrea Tantaros responded to Obama’s tears today during his gun control push.

“This is how many years? Eight years, he’s almost at the end of his term. And you haven’t heard him go to Chicago and speak out about this issue and he is uniquely poised to do so. But everything he’s doing won’t solve that problem. So I would check that podium for a raw onion or some “No More Tears.” It’s not really believable.

So is FOX News going to suspend her too for making such a comment of the Obamamessiah?
