“Chicago Mob Goes to Washington.” It’s like a bad TV movie of the week. Insurance companies fear Obama administration retribution if they speak out against “the Unaffordable Care Act.”
Yes, Drew Griffin of CNN (yes, CNN) revealed that insurance executives are being told to keep quiet. Do not contradict the president’s statement of blah blah – keep your plan, blah blah – keep your doctor, etc.
Griffin said executives were told that if they speak out they will get a call from the White House. Is this surreal or what?
Well, not to those of us who know and have known who this president is and the enforcers he has working for him. My guess is that this directive did not come from Obama but from our shadow president, Valerie Jarrett.
So if an executive does dare to speak the truth, I wonder what the phone call would entail?
“Gee, Jerry (or whomever), we hear you’ve been talking trash and spreadin’ lies about us. That’s too bad. The boss ain’t very happy with you. But no harm done. Maybe you can walk back some of your statements. That would be good. By the way, your office is that big building downtown, right next to that coffee shop you stop at every morning at 8:05? We’d also like to confirm your home address. And don’t you drive that black Mercedes, license plate number, …? Oh, and where do your kids attend school? Like I said, we’d appreciate if you recant your statements. That would be helpful.”
So is this the way it’s going to go? Anyone who stands in the way of their grand plans will be “dealt with”? Oil companies, the coal industry, the Tea Party, and now the insurance industry are all being threatened into extinction.
Will we, one day soon, find an insurance executive dead of an “apparent suicide” in Fort Marcy Park ala Vince Foster?
By now, don’t these insurance company executives realize they are purposely being run out of business? Can’t they understand that if they don’t stand against these thugs now, they will end up being the CEOs of nothing?
This administration is targeting them for destruction. The end is a single-payer government administered healthcare with no private sector middlemen.
These insurance execs are in a no-win situation, so they might as well do the right thing, speak out and take the arrows now. There is no one (or very few) in Washington who are willing to fight and speak the truth on their behalf.
If they have any chance of saving their industry, they had better put their fear of “retribution” aside and speak out.
If not, it will simply embolden the Obama Mob thugs and provide them a blueprint on how to target their next private sector victim.
