We've made clear all along when it comes to working with states that we are flexible with the way that they.
Implement the affordable care the decision to postpone.
Implementation of this provision.
The Affordable Care Act.
We'll have no seem to -- an impact on implementation overall of the affordable care.
-- because we're sitting getting it right.
That was supposed to be a technical corrections bell at the end of this that never card and what we're saying right now is that many -- coming out on this piece of legislation.
Well obamacare continues to have some changes basically regs regulations and rules coming from.
The Health and Human Services Department PH your chest now more than 20000.
Pages of those rules defining.
We're back with the panel AB one of those came out late Friday a holiday Friday.
Which said that.
-- -- -- sixteen state run exchanges can take people's word for it until 2015.
On whether they qualify it for.
Whether they get affordable insurance from employer -- not in other words if they make.
The exchange in order to get federal subsidies.
Well they're gonna have some back and forth on on what the HHS.
Is going to do.
It's not that will be completely unverifiable but there is going to be a delay.
In in verifying whether or not you have that option not necessarily they'll they'll track your income but whether or not you have the option -- employer.
Really essentially without confusing -- anymore.
Let's talk about the fact of the exchanges.
Which are supposed to be up and running on terror -- are are not on track to do so.
Are supposed to generally unhealthy people that is the measure of cost control so even if you try to slide this -- -- bring -- and because they're getting all these subsidies and it's not verifiable and it sounds so appealing.
You're still bringing in people with preexisting conditions or shopping for insurance.
Gaming the system if they look to do that.
You're not bringing young and healthy new consumers and that is still the coal.
That that that's that the lever by which this whole system -- for us to control costs so the administration might.
Beginning as it might be -- a blatant play had -- -- but it's still not going to end up meeting the goal which is so that.
It's the costs are controlled you have it -- a big broad pool it's still going to be a pool of people have conditions.
Trying time to get the best plan right and these changes are happening and we had the employer mandate push back.
We have letter from senator hatch that says -- administration asking for a 107%.
For the federal subsidies before anybody's been paid one -- Because the entire enterprise was a gigantic.
Bait and switch the administration tried every -- -- in the book.
So that the president could say Obama care -- Cost them to the treasury a guy.
He said it again and again and anybody over the age of nine and understand if you -- to increase community give health insurance.
230 million new Americans.
Of course is can increase the cost to law of nature but they pretend -- -- all the gimmicks.
And all these installments in suspensions.
Are now the parts of the bill that would -- either raise the revenue.
For control cost the -- -- -- mandate was a way to get.
Defines -- the insurance provided by the employers so that's out of the way it's going to increase the cost.
-- was postponed now.
Which was a way to know if somebody's cheating in getting a subsidy in the exchange.
-- out the window it's going to be enormous amounts of abuse and the idea of -- young people.
There's no incentive if you're a -- hero.
To go spend a fortune on a plane -- all kinds of those whistles -- you you pay a fine.
And it's because of -- five dollars what we're gonna end up with -- of this that's going to be implemented.
Continue to hope people on the changes in the subsidies alone the fraud and abuse and once people are getting that we have to race attacked his hugely.
As a way to cover it hasn't just done in Canada and great.
It's important point out that as -- mentioned you can still check.
Income whether they qualify but whether they have insurance through employers.
Is the part that's getting pushed back in sixteen states.
Bottom line Fred is that this is kind of like a quilt work of different states it's all different not because they didn't all sign on together where does this go -- this actually.
Launch in October and then January 1 114 do you think.
That's something we'll launch in October I'm not sure what it is that Jay Carney said Terrence didn't getting it right then -- instead of getting gold.
However you know whether it's ready or not and they're gonna have something.
And they're going to be handing out subsidies and the truth is.
It's almost impossible once you're giving somebody money to get that back look what happened on the farm bill what was the formula was about food stamps.
The food stamps eligibility is increased.
The first under president George W.
Bush and then in the it's a stimulus under President Obama.
But that bill that the -- did -- original idea was to bring back some of that money lets them we don't need.
Food stamps go to that many people and to try to do any of that.
It's impossible you can't take the money back that's why they wanna sign these people up so something will get going get -- -- be coherent.
Workable health care plan but health insurance plan but.
What they'll be handed out the subsidy.
He's ten seconds A -- his health care of the big issue in torn fourteen.
