Shocked, shocked to learn about gambling (I mean Obamacare) November 7, 2013

I read this headline in The Atlantic about ACA/Obamacare information and was shocked (as in Casablanca) and for real!
There are multiple states that prevent or limit their ACA navigators (information helpers hired to work in each state) from discussing the benefits of Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act). Is your state one of them? Hint: None are on the West Coast. Some oaf them are red.

“States that resisted Obamacare in the first place seem to be, unsurprisingly, the same ones that are wary of the navigators.”

For a list of states and restrictions, look here.

How low will they stoop-I guess this lowers the bar again in the limbo game.

This is a debate about… March 21, 2010

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) states that the debate is about who is in control of our health care.

He says that “we should not confuse the social safety net with the slippery slope towards socialism.”

I’d grant the R’s the point about control of the system, if they would concede that individuals do not control their own health care choices now. Our employers and the private insurance companies control our access to health care right now.

The socialism argument is specious and inflammatory. Is it only being used for a President who doesn’t like like the last one? Is it a cover for race? All the people who are using it are Southern, unless you count one of my relatives from Idaho…

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) wisely made the point that after 17 months of debate-how can the minority complains that “the bill is being rushed through” without sufficient debate.

Rep. George Miller reiterates  that one benefit will be to remove the barrier of pre-existing conditions from people.

I have mentioned this before, but this will help me immensely! I know people who are trapped in their current jobs with no freedom and no flexibility to change jobs, because one of their children had the misfortune to have been born after their parents went to work for that employer.

Example: If a child has diabetes and their parents want to change jobs, the child has a pre-existing condition and will not be accepted by the new insurance company. They are trapped. Individual health care, if available would be unaffordable.
