this administration is out of hand!

Do you think this is ok?
The Obama administration issued a GAG ORDER to humana, an insurance company, after it sent out a FACTUAL mailer regarding Medicare benefits that stand to be slashed under HC proposals. Seriously, a gag order? After receiving complaints that the order violated free speech, the order was lifted, provided people could opt out of the communications.
Do you think that they are stepping over the line NOW?

  • House bill also gives Medicare $340 billion more over a decade. The money would pay docs more for office visits, eliminate copays and deductibles for preventive car

  • Probably because FOX likes to make up their statistics just like the insurance companies, but as long as they have some truth in it like the right name and who did the study it is called free speech. If the Obama administration was bad he would just get rid of the fox new network all together and finally shut those morons up

  • Actually, it was NOT factual! and they issued it intimating that Medicare agreed with their assessment, which they did NOT. Also they agreed they were doing it illegally and said they would stop...AFTER MILLIONS already were sent out.
