Health Insurance Companies Seek Big Rate Increases for 2016
By ROBERT PEARJULY 3, 2015
WASHINGTON — Health insurance companies around the country are seeking rate increases of 20 percent to 40 percent or more, saying their new customers under the Affordable Care Act turned out to be sicker than expected. Federal officials say they are determined to see that the requests are scaled back.
A year ago was when all of those illegal kids crossed the border, moron. So how about answering why you made up a fact? It's called lying. But then you can't tell a lie from the truth. Can you?
If you had been following the news you would have seen articles on an epidemic of reparatory disease in schools, some with fatal results.
Facts mean nothing to you and your ilk. You can't even admit The Liar in Chief is a liar.
Rocks, keep the kidney. The workers' paradise is just 50 miles south of Miami. It has a great climate, wonderful beaches and great death camps for dissidents. If you go there to live, Fidel Castro will greet you at the airport and kiss you on the lips. So quit your whining and get on the next plane to the workers' paradise. It is communism at its best. You'll love it.
Show you have the convictions of your beliefs and leave now. If you go, I'll send you a case of mad dog 20/20 every week. What a deal, huh? You get to leave this horrible country and go to one that reflects your beliefs. Everyone knows that Cuba is a communist success story and like communism promised, everyone is equal, equally miserable.
Quit your sniveling and go now!
"No disease outbreak has ever been traced back to these illegals. Making up facts, rob?
Undocumented Immigrants bringing diseases across border?

MCALLEN, TX - There’s a growing health concern with hundreds of illegal immigrants crossing over into southern Texas.
U.S. Border Patrol agents are worried that what's coming over into the U.S. could harm everyone.
This time the focus is not on the women and children that are crossing over in droves.
Agents are worrying about a viral outbreak.
“We are sending people everywhere. The average person doesn't know what's going on down here,” said Border Patrol agent and Rio Grande Valley Union representative Chris Cabrera.
Cabrera says agents are seeing illegal immigrants come over with contagious infections.
Detention centers and holding facilities have quarantined areas for those who come in sick. But Cabrera says the sick and healthy are separated only by caution tape.
“There's been an outbreak of scabies that's been going on for the past month,” Cabrera said.
Texas border resident Jorge Garcia says word about the contagious skin infection is getting around.
“Our Border Patrol agents check on us all the time and they told us about the outbreak of scabies,” Garcia said.
Cabrera says the sickness doesn't stop at scabies.
“We are starting to see chicken pox, MRSA staph infections, we are starting to see different viruses,” Cabrera said.
Garcia believes the viruses are not confined to the detention center. Not long ago, a group of border-crossers came knocking on his door.
“It was a 7-month-old baby. It was shaking, it had a fever,” Garcia said.
The Department of Homeland Security called in Coast Guard medics to help treat those who are sick. But Cabrera doesn't believe the federal government is doing enough. He says other Border Patrol agents have contracted scabies and he fears it will spread quickly.
“It's contagious, we are transporting people to different parts of the state and different parts of the country,” Cabrera said.
“Just the fact we are exposed to it, and so is everyone here in south Texas, it's a great concern to us,” Garcia said.
It's unclear how many were treated for illness.
(And this from the most transparent admin in history)
DHS has denied all requests for interviews with doctors and medical staff treating sick immigrants. The agency has also turned down our request for a tour.
And this from JudicialWatch:
Illegal Alien Minors Spreading TB, Dengue, Swine Flu
JULY 08, 2014
The hordes of illegal immigrant minors entering the U.S. are bringing serious diseases—including swine flu, dengue fever, possibly Ebola virus and tuberculosis—that present a danger to the American public as well as the Border Patrol agents forced to care for the kids, according to a U.S. Congressman who is also medical doctor.
This has created a “severe and dangerous” crisis, says the Georgia lawmaker, Phil Gingrey. Most of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) are coming from Central America and they’re importing infectious diseases considered to be largely eradicated in this country. Additionally, many of the migrants lack basic vaccinations such as those to prevent chicken pox or measles, leaving America’s young children and the elderly particularly susceptible, Gingrey reveals.
In a hard-hitting letter to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Congressman Gingrey demands that the agency keep Americans informed about its plan to handle the growing public health crisis posed by the influx of minors. “As the unaccompanied children continue to be transported to shelters around the country on commercial airlines and other forms of transportation, I have serious concerns that the diseases carried by these children may begin to spread too rapidly to control,” the congressman writes. “In fact, as you undoubtedly know, some of these diseases have no known cure.”
Gingrey mentions reports of Border Patrol agents contracting diseases through contact with the infected illegal aliens. A few weeks ago Judicial Watch reported that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is forcing Border Patrol agents to serve as babysitters for the UACs. An internal agency document obtained by JW calls for agents with “child care or juvenile teaching and/or counseling” experience to work at the various shelters housing the migrants. Officers from the front-line agency responsible for preventing terrorists and weapons of mass destruction from entering the U.S. will be “responsible for feeding, monitoring, interacting and providing security” for the illegal alien minors until they are placed elsewhere.
To handle the escalating health crisis the CDC has activated an Emergency Operations Center (EOC), but Gingrey points out in his letter that Congress and the public are being kept in the dark about what it’s doing. “I firmly believe the public deserves to know the specific actions the EOC and other departments of the CDC are taking to combat and prevent the spread of communicable diseases,” the lawmaker writes. He goes on to demand that the CDC take immediate action to assess the public risk posed by the UACs and their subsequent transfer to different parts of the country. “I would also like information on what is being done to protect border patrol agents who come in contact with these diseases, what decontamination efforts are taking place, and what is included in medical screenings of the children.”
The administration has worked hard to keep that information secret, though some of it is slowly leaking out. One major news station reports that tuberculosis is spreading at the camps housing the illegal immigrant minors while the government downplays the severity of the matter. At least half a dozen anonymous sources, including nurses and healthcare providers, treating UAC’s at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio say the government is covering up a very serious health threat. Specifically, tuberculosis has become a dangerous issue at both the border and the camps, according to several sources cited in the story. One source confirms that “the amount of tuberculosis is astonishing.”
fraud, what do you expect from people who love and support OWS loons? They can't quite grasp the meaning of illegal. Like the evil big corporations they despise, they want illegals to steal American jobs. It's strange to see socialists in bed with evil 1 % capitalists.
The Capitalists want illegal for cheap labor and the social;ists want hem for votes. Both the big corps and the socialists want to sell our country down the river.
Why can't the knee wearing socialists on this MB recognize that?

Jimmy Carter: President Obama blew it on ISIL
By JONATHAN TOPAZ | 10/8/14 6:58 AM EDT
Former President Jimmy Carter is criticizing President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy, saying he has shifting policies and waited too long to take action against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
In an interviewed published Tuesday in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the 39th president said the Obama administration, by not acting sooner, allowed ISIL to build up its strength.
Jimmy Carter criticizes President Obama's foreign policy
Published July 03, 2015 FoxNews
JIMMY CARTER, FORMER U.S. PRESIDENT: "I can't think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than we did when we took over. You know, if you look at Russia, if you look at England, if you look at China, if you look at Egypt, and so."
Greece will be out of money by this weekend, completely bankrupt!
Here is a simple concept that is too complicated for socialists to grasp. When you spend more than you make, you run out of money. Wow, who knew, eh?
CDC Official Calls Obama Worst President, Amateur, Marxist After Influx of Illegal Alien Minors
JULY 02, 2015
Following the influx of illegal immigrant minors from Central America, an official at the federal agency charged with protecting public health describes Barack Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had,” an “amateur” and “Marxist,” according to internal emails obtained by Judicial Watch.
JW got the records as part of an investigation into the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) activation of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to deal with the barrage of illegal alien minors last summer. Tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated in the U.S.—became a tremendous concern. The CDC, which operates under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), responded by opening an emergency facility designed to monitor and coordinate response activities to eminent public health threats.
This special emergency division was created after the 2001 terrorist attacks and has responded to more than 50 public health threats, including hurricanes, food borne disease outbreaks, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic and the Haiti cholera outbreak. Scientists from across the CDC are brought together to analyze, validate, and efficiently exchange information during a public health emergency and connect with response partners. The EOC also coordinates the deployment of CDC staff and the procurement and management of all equipment and supplies that agency responders may need during their deployment.
It’s a major and costly operation that can stick American taxpayers with a huge tab. That’s why JW launched a probe when the Obama administration took in the illegal immigrants, initially coined Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), with open arms last summer. JW has sued the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for planning records involving the border crisis as well as information relating to the solicitation of “on-demand escort services” for the 65,000 UACs that remain in the U.S. Last year JW also reported that the illegal immigrant minors have brought in serious diseases, including swine flu, dengue fever, possibly Ebola virus and tuberculosis.
The CDC records obtained by JW this week include email exchanges between agency officials directly involved in the activation of the EOC to handle the health threats created by the influx of illegal alien minors last summer. In an email dated June 9, 2014, CDC Logistics Management Specialist George Roark wrote to CDC Public Health Advisor William Adams that “no country in the world would allow” the influx. Adams replies that “in ten years or less, they’ll all be voting…Commander’s intent…” Roark fires back by describing Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had…he truly is ‘the amateur’ but a Marxist too.”
rob, will you be driving a stake through the hearts of The Wicked Btch of the West and her husband Billy, Pocahontas, John Kerry (the richest person in congress, estimated at $250 million), The Dear Leader, George Soros, that idiot Nancy Pelosi and her moron pal Harry Reid? They are all evil 1% capitalists.
I'd like an answer.
I was right socialists won't discuss black on black violence but they will always repeat the lie of "Hands up. Don't shoot.".
Let's see. The CBO is lying but the Dear Leader never lies, right? I don't think you are the best judge of who is lying and who is not.
rob, you have changed the subject, typical! Is the CBO lying? Yes or no!
Richard, you will notice the idiot's apprentice did what he always does and that is change the subject because he can't argue with the truth. It makes his head hurt.
I don't answer his posts anymore because it's like arguing with a fourth grader except you get better arguments out of a fourth grader.
