Obamacare once again is trending back on the table of the Supreme Court of the United States , This allowed states and the federal government to put in an array of measures to fully implement the act. That didn't end the matter. Conservatives dug deep and found a provision buried in the law that purports that only states and not the federal government can set up insurance exchanges. The case is King vs. Burwell. If the court upholds the challenge it would nullify the subsidies in the form of IRS approved tax credits that the +++ millions who signed up for coverage in those states receive. Protesters crowded the sidewalk from the Supreme Court Building with signs that declared, “Don’t Take away my Health Care” or “I didn’t elect the IRS.” The potentially game-changing challenge to Obamacare seems to be tax credits , but now ***Wendell Potter, former chief spokesman for Cigna and Humana, He explained that if the “premium tax credits” are struck down in the 34 states without state exchanges, that would put in place a process known as “adverse selection,” meaning that without subsidies to offset the cost only the oldest and sickest would be motivated to buy health insurance: “And if that happens, you have to raise rates, and that means more young and healthy people leave … and that creates a system where very few people can afford coverage.” The Court is there to uphold the Law and if Obama and the Democrats had read the Bill and before they rammed it through on a straight Democratic vote it may have been different. It seems rather strange that NOW the Courts are looking to dissect parts of the law? That's a bigger problem than Obamacare's supporters seem to realize. Liberals' hope is that if the law can just survive this legal challenge and succeed on the merits -- insuring more people at a reasonable cost -- it will eventually gain acceptance, or at least benign indifference. By that view, the low level of public support for the law is either minimally important or beyond fixing.But if Democrats don’t find a way to address the public distaste, Obamacare will stay vulnerable to the next ploy that comes along to undercut it. The disapproval fuels not just the court challenges but also the obstructionism of Republican executives and lawmakers that makes those challenges so potent. After all, if every state were willing to establish its own exchange, the court's ruling on King v. Burwell would be moot."...Liberals' hope is that if the law can just survive this legal challenge and succeed on the merits -- insuring more people at a reasonable cost ..." Wow! liberals and hope, again. Where did we grow tired of hearing that? Also, who says insuring more people at a reasonable cost. What about the higher premiums, and the 2500 per family savings which were never seen?
It’s another 90 days or so until the public version of that vote (with formal written opinions) is announced and while individual votes could change between now and then ‒
MRS CLINTON'S E-MAILS.
I'am pretty sure that out there, that some one is going to dig up dirt on Mrs. Clinton (or trying ) . The (2)> Benghazi fiasco just would not be enough. It seems that part of problem is not just her e-mails but her foreign donations . (1)> Former President Bill Clinton took to his wife’s defense over the weekend at a foundation event by supporting the foundation’s foreign funding.“We do get money from other countries, and some of them are in the Middle East,” Clinton said. “I think it’s a good thing.” Is it possible that its part of a "smear" campaign on her ?. The email issue has upset what has been seen otherwise as a smooth pathway toward the Democratic Party's 2016 presidential nomination for Clinton, a former U.S. senator and first lady. In the depths of the hacker and IT-blogger community, a skirmish has now broken out over the nature of Hillary Clinton's email server -- a debate that could have profound implications for national security during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, and for investigators hoping to mine her emails for evidentiary purposes.President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton exchanged emails during her time as secretary of state, the White House said on Monday, confirming the president was aware that his potential successor used a private email address for government work. Obama said in an interview with CBS on Saturday that he found out about Clinton's use of a personal email account through recent news reports, but White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama was aware of her address earlier.The hypocrisy of the former secretary of state is breathless....I recall Hillary denouncing president Bush and claiming that he was "shredding the constitution" for using a personal e-mail account. I suppose our ruling elites live by a completely different set of rules than that which applies to us peasants in fly-over country. Clinton has yet to say anything publicly about her use of a private email system, except for a tweet last week saying she wants to release her emails and has asked the State Department to do so. Thus the e-mails is more about digging up dirt , what she will attempt to hide before 2016. No official announcement of a Clinton presidential campaign, the foreign donations are being heavily scrutinized to see where the funding is actually going.
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
***Texas passed tort reform, didn't lower any costs. Want to lower cost??? ABOLISH ALL HEALTH INSURANCE. Fight the AMA and build 2 doctor training hospitals per state, per year, for the next ten years, with public funds, use public funds to pay for Doctors and Nurses education. When we krap out Doctors, at the same rate as lawyers, problem will be solved. They will have to compete for " our" health care dollars, free toaster with every finger wave!! . The Supreme Court told a lower federal court this Monday to reconsider a ruling that forced Notre Dame University to comply with Obamacare’s birth control mandate.Justices vacated the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in light of their high court’s later decision in the high-profile “Hobby Lobby” case. In that instance, the justices said closely held corporations did not have to comply with the contraception rule if covered drugs or services violated their religious or moral beliefs.Religious liberty groups hailed the decision as a significant strike against the mandate, an outgrowth of the Affordable Care Act that requires employers to insure contraceptives as part of their health plans. +++Nothing about the millions that lost their insurance, higher premiums or work hours cut? Did you not see the statements made by Jonathan Gruber. This entire health care topic is a circus. None of these idiots in DC know the first thing about providing medical care to patience. Elected liars are not Medical professionals, their control freaks. (let me be clear! if you like your doctor, you can keep him) Stop listening to these idiots.(1)> Clinton Foundation accepted donations from foreign governments that have been oppressive to women. She also did not address the fact the foundation accepted funds from foreign governments when she was secretary of state. Or why she used a private email address during that time. (2)> The House Select Committee on Benghazi issued subpoenas for some of Clinton's personal emails on Wednesday, and later that night Clinton said in a tweet that she has asked the State Department to release her emails. "I want the public to see my email," she said.
