    The very definition of a pre-existing condition, it would seem, and wasn't the point of this statist power grab to make sure that was not an obstacle to having insurance to pay for your care?

    I thought the SCOTUS was still looking into the procedure or origin of the bill and whether that was Constitutional to begin with. Also I believe the SCOTUS reserved the right to look at the ACA how it's implemented into law. Meaning they had to wait and see how it was used in the real world. But I could be mistaken.

    You must certainly hope this socialist/communist medical insurance extortion, experiment keeps on chugging along. Don't you? The takers in our country need to just move away to some bastion of nanny-state-ism and leave the rest of us alone.

    I expect to see some of our leftists move to Canada as soon as we elect a real POTUS of the people and for ALL of the people, not just the special interest groups, like Obama is for.

    And based on your first paragraph, by all the people, you mean everybody that thinks exactly like you.

    Socialized medicine is nanny-state government regulated and controlled crap.

    Which is how you think. Not everybody agrees. So when you say all the people, you mean all the people that think like you, right?

    Just because some (freeloaders) people want it and accept it doesn't change the definition of what it is.

    Yeah and if you call people who disagree with you "freeloaders" they cease to be people. That is how this works right?

    I'm sure they didn't bill $400,000 all on 12/31.

    Because the government has agreed to off set any losses with taxpayer money


    "
    Section 1342 of the Affordable Care Act forces taxpayers to make insurers whole for most of the losses they incur selling policies on the ObamaCare exchanges through 2016. The bailout is meant to hide the full failure of the president’s signature health law until after the next presidential election.

    This provision was under the radar until last fall, when ObamaCare’s first ugly surprise hit many Americans. The law forced insurers to cancel 5 million to 6 million health plans effective Jan. 1 because they didn’t comply with ObamaCare’s one-size- fits all coverage requirements.

    The law was designed to do that, but the public outrage moved President Obama to ignore his own law and tell insurers on Nov. 14 that they could keep selling the old plans after all.

    Maybe some day we can actually try socialized medicine.

    If people are cutting checks to big insurance companies, that ain't socialized.

    New Years eve is when the event started. The article talks about anything that took place AFTER new years eve.

    I know it must be frustrating that the law has so far... 100 percent failed and hard for you to deal with it. Keep on supporting what is clearly not working.

    I'd like a system that cuts the insurance companies out of the loop completely. It's a health-care savings account.

    The law is an unqualified success so far.

    That doesn't mean that there aren't problems that still need ironing out.

    Make up your mind? Is it an "unqualified success"? Or does it still have "problems that still need ironing out"?

    Why claim it's an 'unqualified success' then go and try and qualify its success?

    No, but if we freed them and medicate them for free. We essentially take that spark of life and the joy of accomplishment away from them, turning them into beggers and bums waiting for someone else to save their ass from earning a living on their own.

    But we all know this whole ACA bill probably originated in Cali., where the hospitals there were losing money because they had to give free care to all the illegal aliens they have flooding their hospitals.
