The President's Nun: Obamacare Scranton Scandal Explodes
Can you say "October Surprise"?

A mushrooming political battle over ObamaCare involving the White House, two incumbent Pennsylvania congressmen, three Catholic hospitals and a nun has just exploded in, of all places, Scranton, Pennsylvania. Charges from the Scranton medical community of intimidation by the Obama White House and its allies are filling the air.

All of this just as Vice President Joe Biden arrives in Scranton today to raise money for one of the participants.

There are two issues at the core of the controversy.

1. ObamaCare and the sale of three Scranton-area Catholic hospitals.

2. The re-election prospects of the two House members, Democrats Paul Kanjorski and Chris Carney, both of whom cast key votes to pass ObamaCare.


Where to start? That would be….

March 22, 2010: President Obama signs the Affordable Care Act (aka "ObamaCare") into law in front of live television cameras and a packed East Room of the White House. According to news accounts, the President uses 21 different pens to sign his name, the highly prized souvenirs of the historic moment given to Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Victoria Reggie Kennedy, the wife of the late Senator Ted Kennedy along with a very select handful of others.

The President, after being introduced by an exuberant Vice President Biden (who whispers "this is a big f…g deal" into the President's ear and is picked up by a live microphone) says:

"I heard one of the Republican leaders say this was going to be Armageddon. Well, two months from now, six months from now, you can check it out. We'll look around and we'll see."

Almost immediately -- it didn't take two months much less six -- the White House is confronted with a rapidly accelerating set of unintended consequences spreading across the country. As listed by the Wall Street Journal, those unintended consequences included 2011 premium increases shooting up as high as 9%; "multibillion-dollar corporate writedowns by Verizon, AT&T, Caterpillar and others"; the disruption of insurance markets, a show-down with McDonald's, the imposition of price controls on premiums, insurers withdrawing from Medicare Advantage.

In what appears to have become a pattern, the response from the Obama Administration has been repeatedly swift and harsh -- compared by one critic as an episode straight out of the Sopranos, the famous HBO mobster series.

The corporate writedowns -- done in compliance with federal law -- resulted in angry phone calls from then-Obama White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and colleague Valerie Jarrett to corporate CEO's and the heads of the Washington corporate offices of those involved. Congressman Henry Waxman threatened a congressional investigation into those companies whose obedience to the law put them at odds with the actual results of ObamaCare. Notification by insurers that rates were being forced up by ObamaCare resulted in a threatening letter from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to insurers warning that such candor would not be tolerated -- at risk of not being allowed to participate in a future government-run health care exchange for insurers.

Then, suddenly, on October 6 -- five days ago -- the fuse to what is becoming a huge political explosion was lit.


Read the rest of the article. [link to spectator.org]

And my corporate healthcare premiums just got a 60% increase for 70 people. A 350 a month cost just jumped to 600 a month. And peole with healthcare said it wouldn't effect them....I guess sticking you head in the sand works until you have to pay the bill. I already pay 275 toward the insurance so the employee portion will junp from 75 dollars to 325 a month. Really for the employee that is a jump of about 400%. Just who got screwed with Obamacare and it is only starting.

The company cannot afford to pick up any more of the healthcare cost. There will not be any viable choices for these employees until 2014. Either pay a 400 percent increase or not have healthcare for the family, that is a hell of a choice and the employer doesn't have any input. You did and you chose not to and looked what happen to you.

I do see the silver lining out of all of this. YOU are responsible for your HEALTH and no whitecoat cares whether you live or die, just bring them the money and that is about to collapse.

Listen to the FDA and the AMA and breath your last breath because it really is all in the plans. Approving Aspertane, MSG, and HFCS are killing peoplse slowly and they wont stop using the poison. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR HEALTHCARE.

I wonder just how many people now feel abandonded by the democratic party, or really have they woken up yet. That party has done more damage to their character and image than one can imagine.

Realize that healthcare was about money and not about healthcare. Companies will quit offering healthcare and instead agree to pay penalties. The winner is the irs, the loser is the employee. What a cluster!
