Cancer patient who spoke out against Obama is audited

Bill Elliot has cancer. Barack Obama made his premiums jump to the point that he cannot afford Obamacare and he decided to throw in the towel and let nature take its course:

A cancer patient whose health insurance was canceled due to Obamacare says he will “pay the $95 fine and let nature take its course” rather than “be a burden on my family” with new monthly premiums that are over $1,300 higher under Obamacare.

“I’ve thought about this long and hard,” Bill Elliott told Megyn Kelly Thursday night. “When my insurance comes out, just for me, it will be $1,500 a month with a $13,500 deductible. I’m not going to pay that. If I make it that long, I will pay the $95 fine and let nature take its course.”

“I’m not going to be a burden on my family to pay this $1,500. What good is it going to do when I was paying almost $180 [a month]?” Elliott told Kelly. “Now it’s gone up to $1,500 and it’s going to take money out of my kids’ bank and my family, and I’m not going to put up with that.”

Elliott says he has prayed about his decision and feels it is the right thing to do.

“Whatever happens, I believe I’m doing the right thing. I’ve thought about it and I’ve prayed about it… To me it’s saving my family money and then they’ll have money to spend instead of throwing it down the drain like President Obama is wanting us to do,” said Elliott.

Elliott says he voted for Obama due to his promise that Americans could keep their plans if they like them.

“I like my doctor. I love my insurance,” said Elliott. “They were paying just about everything, including medication and medical devices.”

On Thursday, Obama said he was “sorry” to the 4.2 million Americans whose health insurance plans have been canceled due to Obamacare. Elliott says the president’s apology is too little too late.

“Absolutely he misled me,” said Elliott. “I believe that was more of an insult to me and the other people who have been canceled than him saying 41 times ‘you’re going to keep your doctor, keep your insurance. Period.'”

A health insurance broker named Steven Tucker reached out to Elliot and helped him keep his insurance:

This is the worst time to cancel someone’s coverage. And, that is precisely why Public Law 104-191 was written and passed by Congress in 1997. It was written to protect Americans from such a situation. I am writing this article not just to help Bill but to help all Americans who are suffering from an ongoing preexisting condition. If you are one of the 5 million Americans who have already received a policy termination letter or one of the 14 million Americans who will soon receive a letter, you need to print out Public Law 104-191 and highlight section 2742 and then contact an attorney. Or, if you have access to your governor – as Bill does – (his governor is the awesome Nikki Haley) contact your governor or state Attorney General’s office because your health insurer is violating a Federal law based on a posting in the Federal register that was not passed by Congress and as such does not trump an existing Federal law.

Since Bill did nothing wrong. No fraud was committed. His health insurer is not leaving the state and they charged him more based on a preexisting condition they are in violation of Public Law 104-191 section 2742. As such, they have no legal right to terminate his coverage, regardless of a posting in the Federal register.

Want to know the best part? I just heard from Bill and after contacting Governor Nikki Haley and his insurance company and reading to them section 2742 of Public Law 104-191 his insurer has decided to keep his policy in force because he has a chronic illness. Bill just told me the following: “Steve, the company decided to keep me active. Since it is a chronic illness. Until this illness kills me. Battle #1 is won. Now the hard part. You literally saved me. Thank you so much.” Those are the greatest words I have ever heard in my 20 year career as a licensed health insurance broker. I couldn’t be a happier man today!

As they say, no good deed goes unpunished. Especially if the Obama Nazis are doing the punishing:

Now suddenly Bill Elliot is being audited for 2009 with an interview only scheduled in April 2014. Assuming he lives that long. That might be a coincidence, but Tucker is being audited back to 2003.

That’s a rather strange coincidence.

Coincidence my ass.

This is out of control. We live in tyranny under a dictator who uses branches of the government to punish dissidents. Pair this up with IRS Chief Counsel William Wilkins’ amnesia:

The Oversight Committee has furnished none, to date, but it is expressing gross dissatisfaction with Wilkins’s testimony and, in a letter sent to him on Wednesday, offering him the opportunity to amend it. “In your testimony, you stated ‘I don’t recall’ a staggering 80 times in full or partial response to the Committee’s questions,” committee chairman Darrell Issa and Ohio representative Jim Jordan wrote. “Your failure to recollect important aspects of the Committee’s investigation suggests either a deliberate attempt to obfuscate your involvement in this matter or gross incompetence on your part.”

The most pertinent subject on which Wilkins’s memory failed him was the nature of his communications with Treasury Department officials: in particular, whether he discussed the applications of tea-party groups with anybody at the Treasury Department, whether he discussed with Treasury Department officials regulatory guidance for 501(c)(4) entities engaged in political activities, and whether he discussed with them the inspector general’s report that blew the lid off of the targeting scandal in mid May.

Darryl Issa cannot move fast enough. Not even Nixon would dare abuse government like this and he had the decency to resign. It is no longer an exaggeration to say that the Republic is at stake. We are on the brink of totalitarianism.

UPDATE

A reminder that Obama “joked” about using the IRS to audit his enemies.

Just a joke about the power of the presidency. Made by Jay Leno it might have been funny. But as told by Mr. Obama, the actual president of the United States, it’s hard to see the humor. Surely he’s aware that other presidents, most notably Richard Nixon, have abused the power of the Internal Revenue Service to harass their political opponents. But that abuse generated a powerful backlash and with good reason. Should the IRS come to be seen as just a bunch of enforcers for whoever is in political power, the result would be an enormous loss of legitimacy for the tax system.

Our income-tax system is based on voluntary compliance and honest reporting by citizens. It couldn’t possibly function if most people decided to cheat. Sure, the system is backed up by the dreaded IRS audit. But the threat is, while not exactly hollow, limited: The IRS can’t audit more than a tiny fraction of taxpayers. If Americans started acting like Italians, who famously see tax evasion as a national pastime, the system would collapse.

One reason why Americans don’t act like Italians is that they see the income-tax system as basically fair in execution. A tax audit or a tax-fraud prosecution is still seen, usually, as evidence that someone has done something wrong. If it comes instead to be seen as “just politics” then the moral component of the system will be gone. For the system to work, people have to believe that it is fundamentally fair.

Obama has totally trashed that moral component. It’s gone, baby, gone.

    What did that IRS memo say?
    That, if a government agency wants to go after a citizen based on illegally collected and shared data, they should develop a parallel investigation to come up with the same data legally.
    Sounds like Mr. Elliot is the victim of just such a thing.
    Obama’s dogs already heard the whistle.
    They already shared illegally gotten data, now they just need to make it legal.

    Perhaps this was the Obama plan all along. Let the rates go up and potentially terminal ill will expire because they can not afford their new exorbitant premiums and deductibles for their pre-existing conditions. Obama will just blame it on the insurance companies. Also, all this more expensive healthcare costs drags the American people that Obama hates so much (Re: Dreams of My Father,) down further towards the poverty levels of other nations. Meanwhile the cases such as Bill Elliot don’t even go up before the death panels, because many of these patients will give up in despair.

    What the ACA is doing to this nation is criminally evil, tantamount to an organized campaign of healthcare terrorism, with the soulless IRS set up as the sleeper agents.

    So, along the lines of the continuing evil that is obamacare, allow me to add to the misery.

    http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013/11/health-insurers-decisions-on-exchange-participation-obamacares-leading-indicators

    This is a rather in-depth, wonkish evaluation of the developing obamacare snafu, comparing the claims of supporters versus opponents as to the outcome of obamacare. One of the things leftists kept saying – trying to paint a thin veneer of economic credibility on this feculent leftist power grab – was that obamacare would lower costs by increasing competition in the health insurance marketplace. However, an actual analysis of this claim shows exactly the opposite effect (which anyone with an ounce of economic sense could have easily predicted). Due to obamacare mandates on insurance carriers, there has been nationwide a 29% decrease in the number of insurance carriers. From 360 insurance providers pre-obamacare socialism to 254 carriers under obamacare. But that isn’t all:

    – 7 states had no change in the number of carriers: CA, HI, NE, NJ, ND, RI and WA

    – 5 states saw increases in the number of insurance carriers:
    Oregon went from 10 to 11 carriers
    NY went from 10 to 16 carriers
    NM from 3 to 5 carriers
    MA from 8 to 9
    Montana from 2 to 3 carriers.

    – 38 states LOST insurance carriers due to obamacare

    But that is still not all. Just because a state has a certain number of insurance carriers does not mean that all (or even most) of those carriers provide health insurance over the entire state. For example, in Wisconsin, which has the second highest number of carriers in the country, 42% of the counties have only one or two carriers offering coverage, and none of the 13 companies offer statewide coverage. In NY, none of the 16 carriers offers statewide coverage.

    The report concludes with a couple of no-brainers:

    With respect to insurer competition, by any measure Obamacare has produced no more than negligible increases in competition—and in only a handful of states. Furthermore, when compared to the current individual market, the Obamacare exchanges actually represent a significant (29 percent) net decrease in insurer competition nationwide. Those results strongly confirm the expectations of Obamacare’s opponents.

    When it comes to the question of whether Obamacare will result in increased or decreased access to care, this analysis finds two patterns that confirm Obamacare opponents’ expectations for reduced access. The first is the participation in the exchanges by a significant number of carriers with current Medicaid managed-care business—particularly the subset for which Medicaid managed care is their main, or even exclusive, current business. The second is the fact that those insurers, along with others—including ones that do not currently have any Medicaid managed-care business—are offering exchange plans that cover only narrow networks of providers.

    And from the likes of CNN –

    http://thelead.blogs.cnn.com/2013/11/22/not-enough-young-people-enrolling-in-obamacare/

    The ‘young invulnerables’ are not signing up for obamacare insurance at anywhere near the levels needed for this socialist scam to come close to being fiscally break-even.

    The left cannot get over the compulsion that their twisted concept of ‘compassion’ drives them to steal from people so the deluded leftist can feel themselves superior for ‘doing something about the poor’. It is past time for people to stand up to the left, call them on their abject ignorance, and rub their collectivist faces into the blatant failure of their socialist schemes.

    Someone needs to get to Jarrett and inform her that American politicians are not Kings and do not “rule” from office.

    She and obama see that as an obstacle they intend to correct.
