The Obama administration recently exempted from ObamaCare's individual mandate all Americans whose health insurance policies have been cancelled under the law.
Midnight December 23 marks the deadline for Americans to sign up for health insurance and pay in full in order to have their coverage begin on January 1. This deadline will serve as a major test of how much public interest in ObamaCare still remains after the disastrous launch of its website on October 1.
The Obama administration recently announced that it would essentially be forcing insurance companies to give free coverage to people who have signed up for coverage on an exchange but not yet paid.
New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg is at it again with his nanny-state measures, the latest involving a push for mandatory annual flu vaccines for New York City children under the age of five. Last week, the NYC Board of Health voted in favor of a rule that will force children as young as six months old to be immunized before December 31 if they attend licensed day care programs.
Because of the embarrassingly low ObamaCare enrollment figures, the administration has not been entirely forthcoming with the actual data. And what information is being revealed is reported to be highly misleading.
The ObamaCare exchange at Healthcare.gov is so insecure that multiple cyber-security experts and lawmakers are calling for it to be shut down. In addition, professionals are warning potential users to beware of the gaping security flaws, which could expose the most private and intimate data of Americans trying to buy health insurance through the federal government’s so-called “marketplace” to hackers and criminals. In other words, the personal and medical information of anyone deciding to use the website — millions of Americans have already lost their insurance policies owing to ObamaCare, Obama’s known lies about “you can keep it” notwithstanding — may end up in the hands of whoever wants it. Identity thieves are among the primary concerns.
Volunteer fire departments across the nation, with the aid of at least one congressman, are fighting to ensure that they are not subjected to ObamaCare's costly employer mandate.
Members of Congress and their staffers have abortion coverage available to them in health plans under ObamaCare, breaking both the law and Obama's promises.
ObamaCare continues struggling to stay afloat after its disastrous launch on October 1. With the healthcare website plagued by significant glitches and low enrollment numbers, some are wondering if the president's signature law will even be able to ride out its first year. Much of its survival depends on the registration of young, healthy, and uninsured Americans; however, data reveal that very few people matching that criteria have signed up for insurance, and many seem to have no intention to do so.
