On Thursday, President Obama said he wanted insurance companies for one more year to keep offering policies that have been banned by the Obamacare law. A Republican had the audacity to put it down on paper all nice and legal like, and now Obama is threatening to veto it.

From The Hill:

The White House issued a formal veto threat Thursday night of a bill offered by House Republicans that would allow insurance companies to continue offering health plans that existed before the beginning of the new year.

The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), is coming up for a vote on Friday.

In a statement from the Office of Management and Budget, the administration argues the law is intended to “sabotage” ObamaCare.

This mess is turning into a less dignified version of a Three Stooges short.

The Upton proposal would allow insurers to continue to sell cheaper plans, and that’s supposed sticking point:

Democrats have worried that if insurers were allowed to offer the cheaper, lower-quality plans to new customers, the young, healthy individuals central to the success of the ObamaCare exchanges would choose the less expensive options, dooming the reform effort.

These are the policies that the Obama administration has deemed “junk” that they say nobody wants, but yet they’re worried there will be demand for them again. Go figure.

Ironically, the “health care reform effort” relies on limiting “choice,” which is a responsibility that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid think Americans are only smart enough to be trusted with when it comes to reproduction, but far too stupid to handle when it comes to picking a friggin’ insurance policy.

Point for pondering:
