Window Closing for Health Insurance: Sign Up Now!

From my email inbox…a reminder from Senator Vinehout…that time’s a wasting and Wisconsin’s uninsured need to act now:

“I was getting the run-around,” the Eau Claire woman told me. She tried to get health insurance through the federal healthcare.gov website and was told she was eligible for Medicaid coverage in her state. When she went [...]

Obamacare Works!

As the nation celebrates 5 million enrollees in Obamacare, let me bring some real life anecdotes to the table.

Most of the people in my immediate circle, like me, work for employers who provide their health insurance. So I never really thought about the impact of the Affordable Care Act. But in the past several [...]

VIDEO: Barack Obama on “Between Two Ferns”

On Tuesday President Barack Obama appeared on Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns with host Zach Galifianakis, and hilarity ensued.

For those of you who aren’t familiar, Between Two Ferns is a sort of mock-public access channel show hosted by Zach Galifianakis. It has the look of a public access show too, with very little [...]

Republican lawmaker: “We’re trying to create a barrier to [ObamaCare] enrollment”

Because making it more difficult for individuals without health insurance to obtain coverage is truly the “compassionate” and “Christian” thing to do! During a political fight over Medicaid expansion in Arkansas on Tuesday, one Republican lawmaker admitted that he doesn’t want to educate uninsured residents about their new health care options because it’s simply too [...]

Papa John’s pays price for anti-Obamacare politicking

I guess “Papa John” Schnatter’s anti-Obamacare rhetoric didn’t play well with consumers (or maybe people just realized how much his pizzas suck). As covered—and criticized—in this column in great detail, Mr. Schnatter decided to mix his politics with his pepperoni when suggesting that he would be cutting the work hours for Papa John employees in [...]

Obama administration to allow exemptions to ACA individual mandate

This is why a single-payer healthcare system would have been a better option, in my opinion. Today, the Obama administration announced that people whose insurance plans were canceled this year will “temporarily” be exempted from the law’s individual mandate. Here’s how they’re doing it — and what it means for the law.

1. The individual [...]

Republicans sure do love their hyperbole & exaggeration

Apparently Republican State Senator Bob Rucho of North Carolina’s 39th district is a big, BIG fan of hyperbole and exaggeration.

Justice Robert's pen & Obamacare has done more damage to the USA then the swords of the Nazis,Soviets & terrorists combined.

The States Must Unite

The November jobs report shows that the country exceeded expectations by creating 203,000 jobs. The stock market continues to set record highs and private industry is sitting on $1.6 trillion dollars.

The economy is clearly coming back from our low in 2009, but we could be doing far better. The people of the United States [...]

Strengthen our Safety Net to Strengthen our Economy

Congress has missed their first deadline in the budget negotiations that were constructed after the government shutdown. Paul Ryan and Pat Murray are co-chairing the committee, and Ryan is peddling his usual cuts to entitlement programs. Republicans persistently talk about cutting entitlement benefits under the guise of cutting the deficit and encouraging people to pull [...]

Affordable Care Act Is Not HealthCare.gov

OK…let’s get something straight…the Affordable Care Act is not equal to Healthcare.gov.

The Affordable Care Act is the laws and requirements that will in fact improve the lives of millions of Americans once it is completely implemented. It is the provisions that have been shared ad infinitum across all media for the past three [...]
