In a major legal blow to Gov. Jan Brewer, the Arizona Supreme Court this morning ruled that a minority of lawmakers have the right to challenge the financial basis for expansion she crafted of the state’s Medicaid program.
Q. Why are you running?
Gov. Jan Brewer will get a chance to stop some Republicans from trying to undermine the financing for her expansion of Arizona's Medicaid program.
More than 140,000 of the state's long-term unemployed could eventually find themselves without health insurance.
Republican lawmakers asked the state Court of Appeals Wednesday to give them a chance to prove that hundreds of millions of dollars being used to support an expanded Medicaid program are being collected illegally.
The state House voted Thursday to put a five-year lifetime cap on government-funded health – but not for everyone.
A lawsuit challenging Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's Medicaid expansion plan that was filed by fellow Republicans in the state Legislature was dismissed in a ruling released Saturday, handing Brewer a major victory in her battle against conservative members of her own party.
Federal officials on Friday poured cold water on Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin's plan to force Medicaid recipients to get a job and to limit their insurance to a maximum of five years, saying the proposals likely run counter to federal law and won't be approved.
I think everyone agrees that the 600 million dollars spent for the “affordable health act” rollout was a total disaster. But I have not seen or heard anyone telling us the additional taxpayer cost to try to fix the mess. If the people who did a bad job cost 600 million, what will it cost for the “best and brightest”?
The lawyer for Gov. Jan Brewer asked a judge late Friday to block dissident lawmakers from challenging the vote of the majority of their colleagues to expand Medicaid in Arizona.

What exactly is an “inadequate” health insurance policy? It turns out that the answer to a seemingly innocuous question is key to our health care future, to what happens when Obamacare goes down.
Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus was one of the chief authors of Obamacare. He helped write it, he voted for it, and he thought it would be great for America. That is, until he started listening to his constituents three years later. At an April 2013 Senate Budget Committee hearing, Baucus said of Obamacare that he saw “a huge train wreck coming.”
Sheesh, what did they expect?
The federal government released data Wednesday showing only about 750 Arizona residents have enrolled in the online health insurance marketplace that is a key part of President Barack Obama’s health care law.
The group of Congressmen who are grilling Secretary Sebelius are pushing an agenda that is a little hard to follow. The issue is that some citizens are going to lose their existing health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act. In a left-handed way this is correct. The ACA offers policies which have more coverage at lower cost and, accordingly, many insurance companies are canceling policies which have become overpriced and are non-competitive ever since ACA was rolled out. The decisions to cancel certain overpriced policies were made by the insurance companies because it made economic sense. There is little future in offering policies which are not competitive because they have less coverage at higher cost.
John McCain is still seething about the government shutdown and those darn conservative upstarts who caused it. For no good reason, the lives of thousands were interrupted in “real and painful” ways.
Congressional Republicans announced over the weekend that they intend to target and remove the ACA, which they derisively call Obamacare. Has no Republican strategist pointed out to this awful party that it has put itself in a ‘lose-lose big’ dilemma? They lost trying to destroy the ACA, and Americans are poised with daggers awaiting the 2014 elections. However, the ‘lose big’ part of the equation would occur if they actually succeeded in destroying the ACA. How do they plan to replace tens of millions of voters who find that our sick health care system has been returned to the bad old days before President Obama offered them a breath of hope and fresh air? It’s a t-publican elevator with only one button: DOWN.

PHOENIX — Arizona hospitals should net $108 million in the first six months of 2014 under a Medicaid expansion plan even after paying their new assessments, according to a state study.
For its supporters, the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is a major step towards reining in health care costs. The theory is that with more people insured, medical costs will actually drop, because insurance companies will be competing for a larger pool of customers, and the newly insured will obtain better care earlier on when illness hits, prior to the more expensive procedures might otherwise be needed.
A recent writer (Steve Ball, July 17, 2013) castigates President Obama and liberals for an unemployment rate that rose after he took office. Mr. Ball then concludes that only conservatives can fix the economy.
