If you ask Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini, the answer is yes.  Townhall has more…

Yesterday on CNBC, Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini said that health insurance premiums could as much as double if Obamacare comes into full effect:

To provide all Americans with health insurance, premiums will have to rise to pay for it, Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini told CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Wednesday.

“If we’re going to insure all Americans, which is a worthy and appropriate cause, then somebody has to pay for it,” Bertolini said of the expected premium increases under Obamacare.

Bertolini said that insurance premiums could double in some places just on the basis of what types of policies people buy today.

Anticipating a criticism, Bertolini said that higher premiums wouldn’t mean higher profit margins for insurance companies. The reason is that it will actually be more expensive to insure people due to some of the Obamacare mandates.

We’ve covered this several times, and we know that premiums have increased dramatically already.  If this comes to pass, it will impact all of us, to some extent or another.

Just remember, if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  Thanks!

ASG CEO Warns Workers of Consequences of Obama Second Term

Apparently, the CEO of ASG is  being a bit frank with his employees, and the Democrats are not liking it.  The Blaze has the story…

The CEO then explained what the re-election of President Obama would mean for the company– and the jobs of everyone who works there:

Many of you have been with ASG for over 5, 10, 15, and even 20 years. As you know, together, we have been able to keep ASG an independent company while still growing our revenues and customers. But I can tell you, if the US re-elects President Obama, our chances of staying independent are slim to none. I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away, and with that all of our lives would change forever. I believe that a new President and administration would give US citizens and the world the renewed confidence and optimism we all need to get the global economies started again, and give ASG a chance to stay independent. If we fail as a nation to make the right choice on November 6th, and we lose our independence as a company, I don’t want to hear any complaints regarding the fallout that will most likely come. Remember, in the world of business, companies are consolidators or they get consolidated; so far ASG has been a consolidator, completing over 60 acquisitions in our 26 year history. When we buy a company, we eliminate about 60 percent of the salaries of the employees of that company. If we lose our independence and get consolidated, the same thing would happen to ASG’s employees.

I am asking you to give us one more chance to stay independent by voting in a new President and administration on November 6th. Even then, we still might not be able to remain independent, but it will at least give us a chance. If we don’t, that chance goes away.  [Emphasis added]

OK, anyone see where the problem is here?  I don’t, but that doesn’t stop some from being hypocritically alarmed.  For example, Think Regress has covered this in a rather negative light…

Last week, billionaire CEO David Siegel, who runs a timeshare empire, threatened to fire employees if President Obama is reelected in November, saying in an email, “the economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration.”

In These Times also reported today that a company owned by billionaire right-wing activists David and Charles Koch sent pro-Romney mailers to its employees. The mailer gives a veiled warning that, if Obama is reelected, “then many of our more than 50,000 U.S. employees and contractors may suffer the consequences, including higher gasoline prices, runaway inflation, and other ills.”

OK then, we’ve already covered the negative consequences of Obama’s policies extensively.  Including how people have lost their jobs, lost their plans, and such, because of ObamaCare.  Think Regress thinks that people warning their employees of this is apparently bad.  However, it doesn’t stop Think Regress from doing so of the exact same thing…

You see folks, it’s OK for the folks at Think Regress to lie about stuff.  Just like every election cycle, the media, union bosses, the Democrats, and lib organizations like Think Regress warn us all that the GOP is hell bent on starving the children and freezing the elderly.  Remember welfare reform in the 90’s?  Weren’t we told that there were going to be starved women and children dead in the street?  But, even though that didn’t happen (and none of it ever does), the lefties can make these dire warnings and predictions.  But, if a CEO, Conservative blogger, or Conservative/Libertarian politician points out facts, or makes predictions based on facts, it’s bad, very, very bad.
