Heads finally roll over Obamacare

Well, not exactly heads, but at least one head.

Last Thursday, shortly after President Obama announced his “fix” for the “if you like it you can keep it” fiasco, William White, the insurance Commissioner for the District of Columbia announced that D.C. would not be implementing the “fix”.

‘The action today undercuts the purpose of the exchanges, including the District’s DC Health Link, by creating exceptions that make it more difficult for them to operate,’ White said Thursday in a statement.

He also agrees with a National Association of Insurance Commissioners statement that said Obama’s order ‘threatens to undermine the new market, and may lead to higher premiums and market disruptions in 2014 and beyond.’

On Friday, Mr. White was fired by Democrat Mayor, Vincent Gray.

It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature.

    Wrong heads: the ones that understand the fraud that is occurring are being fired by those perpetrating/enabling it.
    The Chicag? Way.

    Criticize Obama, lose your job. Only if you are a Republican, that is. Critical of the regime, get audited by the IRS like Dr. Carson. If you criticize the dear leader and you are in the military, you’re forced to retire. Is there a pattern here?
    It must be deadly to voice any kind of dissent in the Oval Office. Offer a contrary opinion to what theOne wants to hear and you are out.
    Barry’s enemies list must be measured in terabytes.

    Amazing! And if you criticize Obomba you are a racist so says Oprah and so many others. So where does that leave you? I call it BS and at the risk of being called names I will continue to speak out against the policies of B.Obama.? The Unaffordable Health Care Act is his worst piece of legislature to date. Not only does it cost more, the health care will be inferior. I just don’t understand how a law can have one of it’s mandates, which is?>>??
    Sec. 1251. Preservation of right to maintain existing coverage?<< can be broken by the person who?wrote it and not be called breaking the law? Shouldn’t there be consequences for breaking a law even if it’s your own law? It is?after all the ?”Law of the Land.”?
