Harris: Maryland Insurance Commissioner Must Expedite Review of Health Insurance Policy Extensions

From the office of U.S. Rep Andy Harris:

Washington, D.C. – Over 73,000 Marylanders have seen their health insurance plans terminated because of the President’s health reform law. Now the President is unilaterally changing the law to try to allow them to keep their plan for an additional year. If the insurance companies in Maryland who cancelled policies decide to extend them, Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. is calling on Maryland Insurance Commissioner Therese M. Goldsmith to expedite the review of those extensions to ensure individuals will be able to keep their plans on January 1st.

Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. released the following statement:

“The President promised Americans that if they liked their plan they could keep it. The President’s proposal today is too little too late, but now the Maryland Insurance Commissioner must expedite the review of any policy extensions offered so that those who have plans and like them can keep them. I have heard from many constituents who liked their policies, but are losing them and can’t afford the dramatically higher prices of plans offered in the exchange. The Maryland Insurance Commissioner must do all she can to prevent this harm from occurring.”

    If anyone in their right mind believes ANYTHING out of Washington DC needs to be “pee” tested. It ALL boils down to re-election(s). 3 yrs. of being lied to and now 30 (?) days to say “My bad.”

It ALL boils down to re-election(s). 3 (+) yrs. of being lied to and now 30 (?) days to correct the “wrongs” and basically say “my bad,” but “I’m” still going to shove it down YOUR THROAT, after the 2014 elections

    Andy this is a state issue now, not a federal one, so go back to doing nothing about the things you actually have control of.

    “President Obama ought to be criticized for misleading Americans about the ability to keep their doctors, for presiding over a historic technology failure, and for many other things besides.

    But his critics should not participate in politics in the hope that they can experience mirth and joy at national failures when they’re carried out by leaders from the political party to which they don’t belong.”

      Where’s Mine,

      I remember that he is a big fan of the conservative constituency that elected him and so I am a big fan of his. Perhaps you would rather have Ms. Pelosi. When I saw her on Meet The Press yesterday I couldn’t stop laughing at her stupidity. Then it occurred to me that she very well might have dementia. I would love to see SNL spoof her performance yesterday. But if you really like someone like her to represent you then maybe you could relocate to San Francisco.

        Watching her really was enlightening. She even stunned David Gregory. Dementia is a definite possibility, but I’m more inclined to believe that even after passing the bill she still doesn’t know whats in it.
