CBS:HealthCare.gov pricing feature can be off the mark

quote:

(CBS News) CBS News has uncovered a serious pricing problem with HealthCare.gov. It stems from the Obama administration's efforts to improve its health care website. A new online feature can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance. The administration announced it would provide a new "shop and browse" feature Sunday, but it's not giving consumers the real picture. In some cases, people could end up paying double of what they see on the website, CBS News' Jan Crawford reported Wednesday on "CBS This Morning."


quote:

As President Obama promises to fix HealthCare.gov, his administration is touting what it calls "improvements" in design, specifically a feature that allows you to "See Plans Now." White House press secretary Jay Carney has said, "Americans across the country can type in their zip code and shop and browse." But CBS News has learned the new "shop and browse" feature often comes with the wrong price tags.

Of course. No way they want to show the REAL price to people just browsing the site. Let's show a much lower price so we can get some positive feedback - because hey, most people are just browsing now anyway.

ETA: This Administration is pretty damn evil.

So the website is either incompetent or lying.

Sort of sums up Obama, doesn't it?

Eh... they'll just slap a disclaimer down at the bottom in 1 pt font..

"Prices shown are not the actual prices that you will pay. They may vary by +200% or more"

And then a) claim no knowledge of it and
b) blame Ted Cruz.

This administration is a joke. The only thing keeping this guy from being the worst in History is LBJ's legacy.

If Obama was a management employee in any business of any kind, and repeatedly exhibited the complete incompetence (or complete detatchment) that he has demonstrated since he's been in the White House, he would have been fired YEARS ago!

bait and switch is illegal in this country


The government has a long history of bait and switch.

1913: The income tax is made possible via Constitutional amendment. Critics protest that there is no top rate set, warning that the top rate might rise to as much as ten percent. They are assured that no such thing will ever happen.

1936: A Social Security Administration explanation of the programs says : “And finally, beginning in 1949, 12 years from now, you and your employer will each pay 3 cents on each dollar you earn, up to $3,000 a year. That is the most you will ever pay.”

1962: AFDC is expanded to “fight poverty” Democrats argue that the numbers are very small and increasing payments will help families get out of poverty. Critics say it will lead to dependency. Before welfare reform you had 15 million recipients and were entering the fourth generation of dependency.

1964 – Critics of the Civil Rights Act charge that it will result in quotas. Hubert Humphrey responds “I‘ll eat my hat if this leads to racial quotas.”

1966 – Critics claim Medicare will be too expensive. The Democratic-dominated “House Ways and Means Committee estimated that Medicare would cost only about $12 billion by 1990 (a figure that included an allowance for inflation). This was supposedly a ‘conservative’ estimate. But in 1990 Medicare actually cost $107 billion.”

2003 – Medicare Part D, drug plan is estimated to cost “only” $340 billion over ten years. Only a few years later and the cost is $540 billion and rapidly rising.

2010 - Obamacare will save the average family $2,500 in premiums and won't add to the deficit. If you like your plan you can keep you plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

These two are the most infuriating, because these two programs have almost single-handedly bankrupted this country.

I would say the Peter Principle applies but he has never be qualified for anything but community organizing.
