Donald Trump Picked The Wrong State To Call Obamacare A ‘Catastrophic Event’

Since we are stubbornly determined to allow profits to dominate our healthcare system, we shouldn’t be surprised that private corporations will do what is best for their investors, instead of what is best for patients. Health insurance will effect everyone at some point, there is no such thing as being a consumer, we are all […]

Secrets In Plain View: Obamacare Is Working

Have people forgotten the nightmare of the pre-existing condition? I have been recently diagnosed with metastized squamous cell lung cancer, the thought of Trump winning the presidency and leading the charge of repealing the Affordable Care Act, all things being equal in the House and Senate, is chilling. My diagnosis being made now, would make […]

Congress Passed A Bill To Change Obamacare. What Happened Next Will Amaze You.

Congress now has no excuse but to continue down this trajectory; they worked in conjuntion to achieve a specific goal; make an existing law better, there should be no going back to sabotage and obstructionism. It is the height of irony that they came together to fix something within the Affordable Care act to make […]

The Surprising Reason So Many People Still Don’t Like Obamacare

It’s the nuances that get you each and every time. When we ask ourselves “why did the Affordable Care Act have to be 2000 plus pages long”? The answer is simple, there were a lot of third party interests to satisfy that went beyond the interests of the American people. I have noticed that I […]

Obamacare Repeal Would Swell The Deficit Even Using GOP’s New Math, Budget Office Says

There is no escaping the simple fact that the Republican Party doesn’t want health care coverage to ever be considered a right. It shouldn’t be surprising, they have never considered Social Security to be a right either, the notion that every retiree should have the right to dignity in their golden years or that Medicare […]

Obama: Supreme Court Should Not Have Accepted Obamacare Challenge

What I don’t understand is how did the case make it past the legal question of “standing”. According to several articles I have read over the past six months, two of the plaintiffs do not have standing, meaning that they are not being “harmed” as a direct consequence of the Affordable Care Act and the […]

Why Obamacare Premiums Will Probably Rise More Quickly Next Year

Seeing the headlines splashed across the more conservative publicatons such as the Wall Street Journal “Insurance premium hikes at 50%” made me incredibly anxious, but I should know better than that, a headline is designed to tease and thereby entice purchase. The reasons for the premium hikes laid out by Jonathan Cohn in this article […]

Supreme Court Throws Out Obamacare Contraception Ruling

Since the Supreme Court believes that corporations are “people”, replete with rights to free speech, religious beliefs and exemptions honoring those beliefs; so therefore by extension, corporations should be held liable for murder, fraud, robbery and a host of other criminal activity that should be able to land the board of directors in prison. The […]

Phil Gramm’s ‘Freedom Option’ Reveals The GOP’s Real Agenda For Obamacare

Phil Gramms’ op-ed reveals the inate fallacy in using the word “freedom” when discussing economic principles within a social and political framework. I have previously stated that whenever you hear republicans utter the words “freedom” and the American people, be on your guard because their motives are not charitable in the least. Historically it has […]

An Obamacare ‘Replacement?’ Don’t Believe The Hype

I strongly feel that the only way that the Republican Party can really understand the seriousness of their decision to withdraw medical insurance coverage from those who, otherwise would not be able to afford it, is to have these same Republican Party members be stripped of their very own generous benefits. Let them live a […]
