CNN: Obama Pressuring Insurance Companies to Keep Quiet About Obamacare Problems

Last night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper spoke with investigative reporter Drew Griffin about an increasing number of reports suggesting that the Obama administration is putting pressure on insurance companies who might speak out against Obamacare. Quietly, it seems, the White House has “kept its boot on the neck” of any insurance company that would dare complain about the new law or its implementation.

“A behind the scenes attempt to at least keep insurers from publicly criticizing what is happening under this affordable care act rollout. Basically if you speak out – if you are quoted – you’re going to get a call from the white house – pressure to be quiet. Several sources tell me, and my colleague Chris Frates that insurance executives are being told to keep quiet. Bob Laszewski, who heads the Health Policy and Strategy Associates – a consulting firm for big insurance and an outspoken critic of Obamacare, says he is getting calls from these executives who want him to speak out for them about the problems. Because they feel defenseless against the White House PR team.”
