Health and Human Services Dept.: It’s not an ‘exchange,’ it’s a ‘marketplace’

January 22, 2013

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
Reacting to negative views and grassroots opposition to Obamacare — or the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — the Health and Human Services Department has dropped all references to “exchanges” in favor of something that rings more of capitalism.

Press statements from HHS now refer to health insurance “marketplaces,” not exchanges, in each state.

As Georgetown University Health Policy Institute reported on Jan. 17: “This week, [HHS] began a major push to educate the public about the new health insurance options available … including the newly-named Health Insurance Marketplace, formerly known as the Federally Facilitated Exchange.”

Obamacare opponents are hardly impressed — or fooled.

FreedomWorks, a grassroots group with a mission to advance free market and limited government principles throughout the nation, operates a website dedicated entirely to halting the exchanges,

Dean Clancy, the director of health-care policy for the group, said the name-change was indicative of desperation on the part of the administration to boost Obamacare favorability ratings.

    I do not care what you rename any big gov projects, programs, or efforts to “help” me and mine: it all comes from a monster quisling that is doing everything it should NOT be doing, and not doing anything it SHOULD BE DOING. The nature of all big gov and progressive/liberal crapo politicions is to become the wanna-be-tyrants related to hitler, mao-tse-tung, castro, qadaffi, stalin, idi amin, pol pot, kim jong-il and a number of other satanicly motivated Jesus hating,Freedom despising, death oriented whackos.

    I don’t buy anything this federal government tries to sell to Americans, because our government has become a quisling.
