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.
Welcome to the "Max and Dave Show," a campaign-style swing around the country featuring two of the most powerful members of Congress rallying support for their effort to overhaul the nation's tax laws — and, just maybe, change the way Washington works.
Obamacare is all but dead in the water. The latest evidence this program is in deep trouble was supplied — as usual — by the Obama administration itself. This time it was the administration’s decision to unilaterally postpone the employer mandate until after the next election.

At Congressman Matt Salmon’s Town Hall meeting in Gilbert, I asked him why is he and the rest of his colleagues keep trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care)? It has been tried 37 times now to the tune of $55 million of tax payer dollars! He is wasting time and our money using scare tactics to his constituents that simply are not true. His response was he is going to continue to try to repeal Obamacare. No matter what it takes!! That plainly tells me he does not care about spending taxpayer dollars on something that will not pass and using false pretenses, but yet he is the first one to complain about government waste and spending.
