Obama Admin Releases 700 Pages Of Obamacare Regulations


If you recall, back in December 2012, the Obama administration dumped 13,000 new regulations on the government and the marketplace that had been approved since May 2012. Obviously that caused quite a panic, so much that the Internal Revenue Service cannot process my taxes because "they are not ready to deal with certain forms." Friday afternoon backed the Obamacare truck up again and dumped another 700 pages of rules to implement portions of the Affordable Care Act. What may surprise many is that out of the 700 pages, these only cover a mere four rules!

The Hill reports,

The four rules, which are scheduled for publication in mid-March, finalize both major and minor parts of the healthcare reform law that Congress passed in 2010.

Three of the regulations are final and roll out the multistate healthcare exchanges and reforms to the insurance market, including provisions to encourage cost-sharing, stabilize health insurance premiums and prevent providers from denying coverage.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said the rules would “help to ensure that every American has access to high-quality, affordable health insurance.”

The rules will become effective on May 11, and HHS will take comments on an interim final regulation regarding cost-savings programs and government risk pooling for 60 days after those rules are published.

The other rule is a proposal to implement the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP), making it effective on Jan. 1, 2015.

For those wondering SHOPs are said to be integrated into state insurance exchanges as a service to small businesses. No doubt they will end up being a thorn in the side of small business. These are supposed to provide one stop payments for business owners rather than making multiple payments to multiple insurance plans.

This monstrosity continues to grow years after it was signed into law and I'm doubtful that we have seen the last of increased regulations by the Federal government. Which brings me to ask, "Where in the world are the Republicans in South Carolina? When are they going to nullify Obamacare for SC? Get on it!"

However, there is a funny side to all of this. Long time Democrat political strategist Donna Brazile tweeted what Twitchy referred to as the funniest Tweet of the day. She was distraught on why her health care premium just went up. Seriously, take a look for yourself.

Perhaps she missed the part about passing the bill to find out what is in it. As I said, we'll be looking years down the road finding out all sorts of things that are in this monster. It's time we had some real statesmen in Washington and the States that are armed to slay the dragon and restore some sanity to healthcare.

    Uh huh you filthy liars! Would you like to explain to me WHY then my 81 yr old mother's health care has been cut? No more physicals? Why you don't think 81 yr old's can have things go wrong with them? No more mammograms? Why? Don't think elderly women can get breast cancer? No diagnostic services anymore? Gee if she breaks a leg WILL SHE EVEN GET AN X-RAY? You bunch of filth currently in our government ARE EVIL. There is no other way to describe you. Oh - and BTW - how many illegals have you removed care from? They don't even spend decades paying into these systems, but you sure dole it out to them, don't you? May God DAMN you all. May you all rot in hell - and preferably - very quickly.

    You bunch of lying communists. For the record - we really need to stop ALL of you from getting pensions or health care. You're quite willing to kill off the seniors who's money you've used for decades to fund your programs - while taking it out of THEIR paychecks, but now you DENY THEM HEALTH CARE that you were stealing the money out of their checks to pay for??? There are NO words to describe how evil you all are.

    Wait till your little sheep discover what our doctor told us! That medical care is
    CUT OFF AT 70 Years old. Do all you baby boomers feel lucky? They want
    our generation to die so they don't have to pay for all the decades of
    our working lives they were stealing from our paychecks. The war is
    coming - and the current administration fired the first shot.

    Only 700 pages? The Obama administration is slipping.
    This monstrosity of a 'health care' bill that was forced upon the American people,
    against the majority will of the people, is now buttressed by even more regulations,
    that will likely strangle businesses and individuals alike.
    We often wonder my fellow Americans just what it will take to cause a real revolt
    against this overbearing, corrupt government. What indeed will be the straw that
    breaks the camel's back? These regulations are one more straw, but we're
    not there yet.....are we?
    Good luck, America.

    Wake up and smell the coffee Donna Brazil. The reason your premium went up, is because Barry likes to screw the American people as he tells them he is here to help them.

  • J J

    Obama is just getting started....wait and see what's coming!! There will be no healthcare left in America because of really stupid policies and regulations!! The ignorant, lazy liberal voters will be sorry at some point that they re-elected Obama. Maybe they can call the White House to complain on their free Obama phone!

  • Kent2012

    that honky hater, kenyan boy, said that this legislation would reduce the debt and save the world as we know it. was the lord and savior of the "no information voter" lying???

    Welcome to Barry's "New World Order" non-gun Marxist land. And, I think "you ain't seen nothin' yet." His private revolutionary activist organization will be out in full force to take back the U.S. House in 2014, so he can have Piglosi ram more freedom and rights robbing laws down our throats.

    • Kent2012

      that is why the rats are trying to get amnesty rammed through, those are the new recruits in kenyan boy's SS. Not only that all the ammo produced is being funneled into agencies that will store it for the illegal immigrant army.....

      For once, someone has said exactly what I was going to -- and better than I ever could have!! Thanks, Bob Devich.

  • disqus_go1wp1TJHg

    O-baloney care will save us money by raising our taxes...

  • Charlie

    Have seen multiple old "fokes" getting perscriptions and have asked why the cost has gone up 20% to 30% + . Stated more that once it is because of Obamacare aka AHCA.
    All in the pharmacies have all agreed that it is because of the Obamacare. Now their cost are going to be even greater.

    • Kent2012

      how can you say that? kenyan boy is saving the world.......

    All these additions should make the bill invalid as it is changing the original that was voted on by congress. If their are changes in a contract it is they nul and void. If it isn't defeated it is a treasonous act that must have punishment.

    • jobird

      Good Luck on that one" Treasonous" Not one single soul will mention that word in the
      Capitol Halls of ill repute. If we know,so do they and yet our country is for all intents and purposes changed forever.Just watch what happens this year.

    • G.Frazier

      The U.S. Constitution provides for what SHOULD (note emphasis) be done about a treasonous leader. The only problem is the fact that bouth houses of the U.S. Congress won't do a thing because they all support the dumbing down of America.
      When America becomes a third world nation, we'll know why!

  • Knife10

    Here's a suggeston to all doctors: Stop treating the people who are writing and passing these laws.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jan.dinkins.3 Jan Dinkins

      You can be assured that "they" have their own private medical team! They are exempt from Obamacare.

    • Knife10

      Of course you're right. What was I thinking?

    • http://www.facebook.com/michele.alfayez Michele Al-Fayez

      They are exempt!

  • jsmithcsa

    Shame on Chief Justice Roberts for not stating the obvious -- that this monstrosity in unconstitutional. Anyone who can read knows it -- surely he does.

    • G.Frazier

      Someone keeps telling me that both the Republlicans AND the Democrats have the same agenda....They're BOTH moving America toward Socialism and people (voters, that is) are so caught up in taking sides that we don't notice Armaggedon is nearer that ever!

    She, the moron that she is, deserves to be on obamacare along with the dictator and his family as well as all the congress members who voted for this obamination. This dictator is so narcissistic that he even named his dog after himself; BO

    • Hotnike

      I think the BO that Obama refers to is his 'body odor' caused by all the dirty lies coming from his mouth
