Gangster Government: Obama "Asks"/Threatens Insurers Into Extending Payment Deadlines

I Will Use "Cooperation" to Grind The Serfs To Dust

From the USA Today, via Ace of Spades:
"It's still unclear how much cooperation HHS will get from insurers, who have been asked to extend payment deadlines into January, cover people's drugs and medical treatment if they are between plans and allow people to sign up later than Dec. 23 to get insurance Jan. 1. Health industry consultant Kip Piper said HHS doesn't have the authority to enforce what he calls these "political requests."  
But HHS said it will consider insurers' cooperation now when it decides which ones can participate on the insurance exchanges next year. 
"They are simultaneously asking insurers to assume the cost and risk of non-payment, taking public credit for it, and threatening insurers with loss of business if they don't comply," said Piper, a former government and insurance industry official."

I think I will walk int a pharmacy on Jan 1 and get 90 days of lipitor, plavix, metprolol EX, and Altace.

About $3k+.

I will just PROMISE when they call anthem who will be scratching their head, that I REALLY REALLY did sign up.
