Obamacare Forcing More Medicaid Recipients to Pay Back Costs After Death

Obamacare Forcing More Medicaid Recipients to Pay Back Costs After Death

State Medicaid laws, conflicting with federal Obamacare law, have created an odd scenario in which the estates of recipients of Medicaid can be tapped to repay medical expenses after their deaths. According to the Seattle Times, Medicaid has always sought to recoup costs from estates for nursing homes and long-term care, but has never attempted to recoup normal healthcare costs because… Read more →

Washington & Wall Street: Bubbles and the Denationalization of Money

There are many ways to lose money or wealth as a result of inflation. For most Americans, the most obvious type of inflation is the steady increase in the cost of living caused by reckless monetary policies followed by the Federal Open Market Committee. Instead of acting as an independent agency and protecting the value of the dollar, the FOMC… Read more →

Mission Accomplished: ‘Fixed’ Obamcare Site Crashes Live on CNN

Another public humiliation for Healthcare.gov. On the morning of the federal exchange site reboot, CNN hoped to demonstrate the success of the “tech surge” revamp of the site live for its viewers. But “then came the roadblock.” To the embarrassment and consternation of the CNN crew, the site crashed live.

Not only did the site fail on air, the technician admits in the segment that his attempt to enroll that morning ended up failing too with the site giving him an error message about 8 minutes into the process. Millions sunk into a site that, two months after its grand launch, still cannot function properly.

Speaking of millions: Millions of Americans have received cancelation notices on policies they were promised by the president they could keep. Many of those canceled policies lapse at the end of the year. With a two-week turn around for new policies, that gives millions of Americans less than two weeks to either enroll for a plan on the federal exchange or scramble to find a new policy on the open market.

Either way, thanks to Obamacare, millions of Americans are finding themselves forced to enroll in policies with higher premiums and deductibles.

Colo. man informed his dog has successfully signed up for ObamaCare

It’s a real shaggy dog story. While Americans across the country are struggling to sign up for ObamaCare due to problems with the federal health care website, at least one enrollee has successfully gotten covered through a state-run exchange: a Colorado man’s 14-year-old Yorkie.

Fort Collins resident Shane Smith told KDVR he received a letter last week informing his dog,Baxter, that a health insurance account had been opened for the pup through Connect for Health Colorado.

Smith told the station he had to sign up for coverage through the state exchange because his health insurance plan was cancelled under ObamaCare. He isn’t sure how Baxter wound up getting enrolled instead, but he said he did give Baxter’s name as a security question as part of the registration process.

“It was pretty funny. Typical ObamaCare, that they would insure your dog by mistake,” Smith told KDVR.

Why did the gold price plunge $10 in 10 seconds?

Why did the gold price plunge $10 in 10 seconds?

Traders in London were left scratching their heads on Wednesday morning when a rapid-fire 10-second spell of selling sent gold prices quoted on a Bloomberg monitor down suddenly by about $10 (£6) to trade near $1,260 an ounce. IG Markets commented that the fall came suddenly following a 2,000-contracts sell order hitting the market, but the incident shows how markets… Read more →

(Reuters) – As the United States threatened to default on its debt last month, major U.S. banks set up war rooms, spent many millions of dollars on contingency planning and, in some cases, even prepared to underwrite federal government benefits. In a series of interviews with top bank executives, new details emerged about the extent of the contingency planning that… Read more →

OBAMA’S INSURANCE ‘FIX’ IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL

Outlets are quoting Democratic operative Howard Dean saying of President Barack Obama suspending certain Obamacare requirements, “I wonder if he has the legal authority to do this.” To remove all doubt: The Take Care Clause of the Constitution absolutely forbids any president from doing exactly what Obama did Thursday. Obama said he would allow insurance companies to keep offering previously-offered insurance… Read more →
