Video: White House intimidating insurers into staying quiet on the ObamaCare debacle?

posted at 12:01 pm on October 30, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

It could be worse, as Audrey Hudson can tell you.  All these insurers are getting are phone calls, not raids by the Maryland State Police seizing their notes on government malfeasance.  CNN’s Anderson Cooper reports that the insurers want to get the real story out about why millions of people will have their policies cancelled, and how they tried to warn HHS of this unnecessary outcome.  For now, they’re outsourcing the job to Robert Laszewski (via Daniel Halper):

“What is going on is, behind the scenes attempt by the White House to at least keep insurerers from publicly criticizing what is happening on this Affordable Care Act rollout. Basically, if you speak out, if you are quoted, you’re going to get a call from the White House, pressure to be quiet,” reports CNN.

“Several sources tell me and my colleague Chris Frates that insurance executives are being told to keep quiet. [The head of] a consulting firm for big insurance and an out spoken critic of Obamacare says he is getting calls from these executives who want him to speak out, Anderson, for them about the problems because they feel defenseless against the White House PR team. … the White House is exerting massive pressure on the industry, including the trade associations, to keep quiet. Sources telling us they fear White House retribution.”

Why are they so intimidated? Because the federal government is their biggest customer.  If that doesn’t point out the issues of crony capitalism and transparency on the uses and abuses of power, I’d hate to have to experience a clearer one.

By the way, I’ll have Audrey Hudson on my show this afternoon to give TEMS viewers a first-person perpective on real intimidation.  Maybe a few of these executives can watch and find their intestinal fortitude.

Yes, Putin can and he will. Yesterday Putin affirmed his love for the communist youth, no kidding.

obama let him. Still, obama and Nurse Ratched/Sibelius think they are the gov’t, no matter what the laws are, or will be.

Ask Jamie Dimon why they ought to feel intimidated.

Why would the insurance companies say anything bad now anyway? They bought this crap sandwich and were part of the propaganda machine that sold it to Congress in order to get 30 million new healthy customers padding their profits. Kinda hard for them to whine about it now.

Besides, it looks like the people so far are blaming Obama and not them for their policies being cancelled.

I’ve changed my position on that with the caveat that I do not know if the grandfathered plans can still be sold to new people and if so, do they still come with the restriction of not being able to refuse per-existing conditions.

Since the plans can be grandfathered as long as the only change to them is the premium, I do not see any good reason to cancel them.

astonerii on October 30, 2013 at 12:11 PM

What a lot of you are forgetting is that these jackhole insurance company execs were all in for Obastardcare. They were pushing it and telling everyone how great it was. Now they’re getting leaned on by the dick-tator they were in bed with? Pardon me if I feel no sympathy as these are the same scummy bastards who sold us out. These d-bags are the same d-bags as the press. Sorry you sleep with dogs you get fleas.

astonerii on October 30, 2013 at 12:11 PM

I believe the comments in the July 23, 2010 FR covered this answer. An existing plan can be grandfathered. A new policy cannot be grandfathered. That was fleshed out by the OMB in their assessment that over 10 million people would effectively loose their policies in the first two years by virtue of the 40% to 67% turnover rate that is typical of individual policies.

DanMan on October 30, 2013 at 12:18 PM

The greed of the insurance companies thinking they were about to add millions to their accounts receivable in exchange for some free Sham-Wow advertising—mix em all together and we are left with a huge turd sammich. Thanks low info voters–you own it.

hillsoftx on October 30, 2013 at 12:19 PM

Why are they so intimidated? Because the federal government is their biggest customer.

And because HHS has been granted absolute regulatory control over them. HHS is the equivalent of the East German Stasi with its relationship to insurers.

NotCoach on October 30, 2013 at 12:20 PM

astonerii on October 30, 2013 at 12:11 PM

The revenue model from old plans cannot sustain what the new plans must cover—they have to have super-sized enrollment numbers from the jacked-up rate plans. Clear and simple. They are not going to hit those targets based upon 1st month numbers. Someone needs to yell “T I M B E R”….cause it’s coming down.

Maybe give them something to worry about and make them less reluctant to cooperate with the DC tyrants.

The Constitution has been subverted for a few years already. Count the scandals for which this president should have already been impeached.

What’s been stopping those pissed off armed citizens so far? What’s going to be the ‘last straw’, so to speak? If you had read off the list of scandals and corruption of the last 5 years to me 10 years ago, I’d have said that we’d have already risen up and taken care of this well before now.

Lately I’m not sure what it will take if the threshold hasn’t already been met.

The insurance companies have been hoisted by their own petard. They signed on to this boondoggle based on promises from Obama that he would be making every single person legally required to buy thier product at inflated premiums and dedcutables. They saw visions of massive profits and returns. Now Barky has pulled the rug out by rolling back the employer and possibly individual mandate. This leaves big insurance on the hook to insure the most costly clients with massive preexisting medical bill yet they lose the gravy of all the healthy people signing up which was to be the source of their profits. In the immortal words of Otter, “You f**ked up, you trusted him”

Mine too, my wife’s grandmother has cancer and isn’t able to get much in the way of treatment and is basically about to give up the fight because she has no hope.

But then what do you expect when it looks like this government modeled it’s healthcare model after the German Aktion T4 plan.

Why are they so intimidated? Because the federal government is their biggest customer.

Yes but where is the government going to get insurance from? In some cases the supplier has power over the consumer and I think the insurance company have power over their customer the government because it has nowhere else to go for insurance… It is time they stand up and destroy this evil called Obamacare… It was a huge mistake that they lobbied for it the most back in 2009-2010… Now it is time to fix their huge mistake…
