From Senator Kyl to Senator Cruz August 21, 2013

Remember Senator Kyl? He of the “that was not intended to be a factual statement” statement, and one of the Senators who voted against the Affordable Care Act. (PPACA).

Is this new model more of an enemy of PPACA than the retired one?

Senator Cruz wants to “defund Obamacare”; he voted against the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) because

“the federal government does not need to be dictating state criminal law.”  And yet he is pro-life.

No right is more precious and fundamental than the right to life, and any just society should protect that right at every stage, from conception to natural death. (from the Senator’s web page)

He says right there that he is for the ‘right to life at every stage’.

Must be only “for some people”.

After the attacks at the Boston Marathon, I was wondering about how the victims would be covered for their injuries. Who pays?

How would  “Romneycare” in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts work?  The answer is better than in the other 49 states, initially.

Here’s why: According to an article in the Huffington Post,

“Yet, given the extensive nature of some patients’ injuries, including lost limbs, there will be ongoing medical and rehabilitative costs that may not be covered by health insurance or by the Massachusetts safety net program. “The breadth of coverage could leave some people with some uncovered expenses given the severity of some of the potential injuries,” Bigby said. The Health Safety Net Program is limited to hospital costs.”

Then I read this on a Facebook page,

“There is something fundamentally flawed in our nation’s health care policy when the Boston bomber is having his medical bills paid for by the taxpayers he attacked, and the victims are resorting to seeking donations online.”

Corporate marathon sponsors are raising money for victims’ health care with a new foundation called The One Fund. ($31.1 million raised as of August.). Even a brewery is giving away money to another fund, the Greg Hill Foundation. Sometimes the funds raised take months to get to the people who need the money.

Hopefully this situation will be different.
