"The Insurers" Were Paid Off
Read between the lines, folks.
...Mr. Obama met with chief executives from more than a dozen of the nation’s largest companies in the Roosevelt Room for more than an hour in a session that insurers said was wide-ranging. Other issues discussed included a suggestion being floated by some in the insurance industry that they be allowed to enroll people directly, rather than through HealthCare.gov, the government’s troubled website. But the insurers said the president had agreed that fixing the site’s remaining problems was a critical priority.
The insurers, many of whom expressed anger that the president had not consulted them before Thursday’s announcement, said they had come away from the meeting willing to work with the White House on the cancellation issue and still protect the financial viability of the new insurance marketplaces.
They did not discuss in detail how the president’s goal might be achieved.
Translation: going into the meeting they knew that King Barack's New Decree would bankrupt some (or all) of them.
Going out of the meeting, they are "willing to work with" King Barack but "did not discuss in detail how" it might work.
This is not hard. They were told that King Barack will provide taxpayer dollars (actually, funny money--there are no "dollars" there) to make up for the losses.
