CNN: Obama Bullying Insurance Companies Who Criticize ObamaCare

Posted by Brian

Obama might not be the best friend of Israel, but he certainly likes the tactics of the Nazi's, ruling through fear and intimidation.

On CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, correspondent Drew Griffin stated that insurance companies "fear" the White House if they speak out against ObamaCare:

"Anderson, what’s going on is behind the scenes attempt by the White House to at least keep insurers from publicly criticizing what is happening on this Affordable Care Act rollout. Basically, if you speak out, if you are quoted, you’re going to get a call from the White House, pressure to be quiet. Several sources tell me and my colleague Chris Frates that insurance executives are being told to keep quiet".

"Bob Laszewski who heads the Health Policy Strategy Associates, a consulting firm for big insurers, and an outspoken critic of ObamaCare, says he is getting calls from these executives who want him to speak out, Anderson, for them about the problems because they feel defenseless against the White House PR team. Laszewski told me today, “The White House is exerting massive pressure on the industry, including the trade associations, to keep quiet.” Sources telling us they fear White House retribution".
