One Day After Questioning Obamacare Fix, The DC Health Commissioner Is Fired

William P. White, the D.C. Insurance Commissioner, was fired 24 hours after he pointed out what everyone with a brain knew to be true about Obama's healthcare fix.

n a statement issued Thursday, White hinted strongly that he opposed the idea.

“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,” the statement said.

He also pointed to a statement issued by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners that said the Obama order “threatens to undermine the new market, and may lead to higher premiums and market disruptions in 2014 and beyond.”

“We concur with that assessment,” White said Thursday.

White’s statement was removed from the department’s Web site sometime before Friday morning. Asked about the removal Friday, spokesman Michael Flagg said the department’s statement had changed.

Can you imagine being a state Insurance Commissioner right now? How much pressure is being put on them to enact a fix that they know can't work and may very well be illegal?

17 I've heard various legal theories on why Our King's unilateral edict of non-enforcement of the individual mandate gives rise to illegality. Let's just start with, as a matter of law, an illegal contract is unenforceable as between the parties and as to every other interest concerned. It all flows from there.

49 Insurance regulation at the state level is one huge shakedown, and the costs of it are, of course, passed on to those buying insurance. State insurance commissioners exist to keep the screws turned so the baksheesh flows from insurance industry lobbyists into the pockets of state politicians.

I once attended a bid specs meeting for a state employees group with the man who became our next state ins commissioner presiding.
His specs made it impossible to rate the group and violated basic underwriting principals to manage risk. Basically, he wanted carriers to take an unknown loss.
Knowing this not to be desirable to my company, I walked out.
I wish walking out were an option now.

This is called a concierge practice (most concierge practices charge an annual fee of some sort with a guarantee of a baseline amount of access). They have popped up in some locales, with mixed success. The biggest obstacles are 1) building a large enough clientele to become profitable and 2) being able to admit patients to a hospital (hospitals grant admitting privileges based on certain criteria). Ultimately, as long as we have a third-party payer system cash-based practices will remain a fringe element.

Of course, this speaks volumes about Obama as an executive and a leader. But we knew that already.

A lot of pressure. Yesterday I asked how could an insurance commissioner approve a contract that is illegal (the president's promise is one not to prosecute - the older plans still are not ACA compliant). Relying on a promise like that is pretty darn foolish, even if Obama's promises didn't come with expiration dates because the state AG may very well prosecute or find some sort of malfeasance or misfeasance in office for doing so. It is an absolute charlie foxtrot - if they do this they put themselves in legal jeopardy, and if they don't they could be fired. Me, I think I would be updating the resume rather than follow such an instruction.

The day after the Obamacare fix was announced by our Lord and Enslaver, our Insurance Commissioner, Mike Kriedler (a Democrat in an elected position) announced that WA will not comply with Obama's fix. Kriedler was a staunch supporter of ACA, so I guess only now can he be called an evil racist. He is also white, so there is that as well.

I don't know if enough folks would give up that week of income to get the politicians attention, but maybe if they also refused to buy anything that week it would be a good multiplier. The hope would be that congress and TFG would blink, but they have to have real fear of losing a significant chunk of the vig for a week or they'll blow it off just like they did the millions of tea party folk marching to say "don't pass this economy killing bill"

101 Remember when the MFM was all aflame about how they had honed in like a laser on the glaring flaw that was the homogeneity of the Bush admin, and where were all the conflicting ideas & viewpoints & patriotic opposition & such in the Oval Office?

Good times, good times.

102 Mikey, yes I know, the only way it would have any chance is if a big name like Beck picked it up, there was one clear goal defined, and it was done as a pledge so the folks thinking "well I'm not going to sacrifice alone" would see other folks signing up. Of course knowing TFG will throw the IRS, EPA, OSHA and other stuff at them only the most brave or desperate would sign before they felt there was safety in the numbers.

So the country will continue to slide towards becoming Venezuela with folks clinging to their hopes that surely *this latest outrage* will mean the conservatives pick up power in the next election and will be able to undo much of the harm.

After 08 and 12 I no longer believe that common sense can overcome the MBM, I'm ashamed that they had conned me into wanting McCain in the 08 primaries before I realized how corrupt they are (I hadn't changed from independent in time to caucus and all the good guys had dropped out before my state even held a caucus anyway --unfortunately it seems that only a small minority of LIVS were jolted out of their stupor)

103 We finally found out what it takes for a Democrat to lose his job.

104 I kind of think this is racist, don't you?

105 Yeah a Democrat will lose his job whenever (or if ever) he points out that the Emperor not only has no clothes, but that the Emperor is standing buck ass naked in a field of lies. That will cost a Democrat his job. Otherwise, he or she is virtually unfireable.

106 Speaking truth to power in the Age of Obama.

This administration is run more like a criminal conspiracy than a government.

107 In the obama regime lying about Bengasi, Fast and Furious, IRS intimidation, NSA wire tapping, obama care, global warming, are allpromotableoffences. Telling the emperor he is naked, not so much.

108 I think thin skinned Obama can't take the heat. He is a narcissist.

I would expect him down in the bunker very soon, killing family and Bo and then doing a BJ on a Luger!
