Healthcare.gov down 620x300An activist who confronts corporate bosses over their left-wing activism has asked a health insurance company about its support of ObamaCare.   

Justin Danhof of the National Center for Public Policy Research attended the April 20 shareholders meeting for Humana, which has announced it won't offer ObamaCare exchange plans in 2018.  

Danhof went to the shareholders meeting to ask if Humana plans to be involved in Republican repeal-and-replace efforts since it promoted ObamaCare in the early days of the legislation.

According to Danhof, the company's CEO delivered an "interesting" response: Humana remains interested in Medicare Advantage and health care for seniors, but not in the "political process" going forward.

"Essentially the message I got was that Humana no longer wants a seat at the table," he tells OneNewsNow.

A CNBC story from February reported Humana was concerned about "signs of an unbalanced risk pool" and estimated then that it would lose approximately $45 million in the exchanges. 

The political process is "messy," says Danhof, but he feels Humana has an obligation to be involved.

"They have a duty, in our opinion, to help fix the problem because they helped create it," he says.

Humana was among the health insurance companies, including Aetna and United Health, that helped Democrats write the Affordable Care Act, he adds.
