Now the tax-payers are bailing out the health insurers … because of Obamacare
So after the past couple of years hearing the praises from the left of how wonderful Obamacare is, the truth is beginning to emerge. How about that liberals? It’s a “travesty” to spend a few million bucks investigating what we all knew from the beginning … Hillary and Obama lied and people died at Benghazi. Hell, the money spent wouldn’t even cover one of the Obama clan’s vacation jaunts. However, bailing out insurance companies to the tune of a couple of BILLLION dollars because they are losing their asses trying to sell Obamacare is cool.
Here’s the truth about the complete disaster called Obamacare and how he and his ilk are using our $ to cover his ass …

How dare the Obama administration bail out insurance companies with our money in order to hide ObamaCare’s failures. Thursday, just hours after giant insurer UnitedHealthcare said it’s losing money selling ObamaCare plans and will likely exit the health exchanges next year, the Obama administration quietly promised to bail out insurers for their losses — using your money.
Nearly all insurers are bleeding red ink trying to sell the unworkable plans. Without a bailout, more insurers will abandon ObamaCare, pushing it closer to its demise. A bailout would benefit insurers and the Democratic Party, which is desperate to cover up the health law’s failure. Ironically Democrats (including Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders) bad-mouth bank bailouts but are all for insurance-company bailouts. Truth is, it’s a ripoff for taxpayers, who shouldn’t have to pay for this sleazy coverup.
The pressure is building on Republicans in Congress. Industry groups like the American Health Insurance Plans and giant insurers are joining with the Obama folks to lobby ferociously for a bailout.
UnitedHealthcare’s Thursday bombshell rattled investors, health-plan subscribers and ObamaCare partisans. The insurer currently covers more than half a million ObamaCare plan subscribers in 23 states, including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
The insurer announced losses of $425 million on ObamaCare plans, and CEO Stephen Hemsley said, “We cannot sustain these losses,” and “we saw no indication of anything actually improving.”
