With time running short, the nation’s health care rolls still aren’t filling up fast enough.
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.
While Leon does have a point with Obamacare’s navigators, I would think there’s a bigger problem. A website as buggy and incompetent as Obamacare’s site has to be wide open to hackers and it has all but advertised that fact. Well crafted, competent websites have security issues — this mess has no even probability of security or safety.
When thinking of health care one must remember that Obamacare uses Cost Benefit Analysis when deciding how to treat you. This means that different options for treatment are considered, but cost and age are plugged into their equation to determine, not what is best for you, but what Obamacare is going to do. They select the cheapest option for your care. They have a limit on the treatment cost. It is something like $22,000 for six months.
We have Obamacare, which can’t seem to even sign people up yet. I wonder what will happen when Obamacare gets going? The way it works is as follows: you go to your doctor about some problem that you have. Your doctor can’t diagnose, or treat you until he text messages the 15-member panel. The panel diagnoses your problem, then sends a treatment schedule to your doctor. He reads the treatment, and is required to follow this treatment, or he will be fined $100,000. His second offense will be a fine and jail time. If for some reason he doesn’t agree with the treatment he can send his opposition to the panel, then the panel will rule on treatment.
Tired of getting email solicitations from Nigerian princes and Romanian bank presidents promising you millions of dollars if you will only give them your birthday, your Social Security number and bank account information? Not to worry. Those pesky emails will soon become a thing of the past. Why you may ask? Well because you will soon be giving all that “private” information and “more” to Obamacare’s so-called “navigators”.
Just when you thought you had the president’s health care law figured out, it’s changing.
The current struggle of wills regarding universal health care (Obamacare) and the debt ceiling has polarized our nation into those who believe in fiscal responsibility versus those who believe in unlimited spending. Conservatives vs. Socialists. Democrat and Republican appellations haven’t been used because there are conservatives and socialists in each party.
In a scary new venture, Rush Limbaugh has announced publication of a children’s history book, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims,” intended to correct what he and his fellow troglodytes consider historical distortions in currently used school books. Having bamboozled millions of angry, racist old white men, Limbaugh is expanding his propaganda victims. According to Limbaugh, children shouldn’t be taught about our broken Indian treaties; our former dictator-propping foreign policy; and similarly unpleasant historical facts.
Even though Arizona is generally considered a “red” state, I’d like to thank all those who voted for Barack Obama, especially those who re-elected him. I voted for the other guy, both times. And thanks for putting all of those Democrat senators and representatives into Congress.
Earlier this year, Senate Finance chairman Max Baucus and House Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp embarked upon a “tax road trip.” Their goal being to rewrite the tax code for the first time in a quarter century.
The Marketplace is open for business! Or is it?
Attorney General Tom Horne is warning consumers, especially seniors on Medicare, to be cautious of scams related to the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “Obamacare.”
Assistant to Attorney General Rear Admiral Nadine Simmons spoke to Arizona State University students, faculty and staff Sept. 26 on the future of health care and the Affordable Care Act.
Barack Obama said this summer that he would be “happy to hear” any health care ideas that rivaled his beleaguered Obamacare, “but I haven’t heard any so far.”
Arizona residents will be offered health-insurance plans with some of the lowest premiums in the country when federal insurance marketplaces begin open enrollment on Tuesday, Oct. 1 under Obamacare, the government said on Oct. 25.
Reaffirming the right of voters to make their own laws, the Arizona Supreme Court on Thursday ruled state lawmakers acted illegally in refusing to adjust state aid to public schools for inflation.
I know the challenges that Arizona faces. I have read the countless reports outlining the investments our state needs to make if we are going to have a bright future: education, business, infrastructure, research, transportation and job creation.
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.
I have read a lot of letters to the editor, and I keep reading those from people that like Obama, and Obamacare. Some say: “If you don’t like Obamacare, why don’t you present your plan for health care?”
Let’s be clear, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is not socialism or communism no matter how many times you hear the Tea Party and Fox News denounce “Obamacare” as such. While not perfect at all given the many political compromises required, the PPACA is making a big positive difference for individuals and families in our country, including improving their individual and economic freedoms.
A number of our East Valley legislators took a positive stand during the recent legislative session to support the governor’s Medicaid Restoration Plan. This will help tens of thousands of working Arizonans gain affordable health care insurance and help stabilize the health care sector in this state.
