I’m listening to Rush Limbaugh today and I understand Jim was talking about Ebola earlier today on the big radio show earlier today. I’m no expert, but let’s put this in perspective. At this point there is very little chance you’ll be exposed to Ebola. Period. You’re more likely to be killed in an auto accident on the way to work.
How could this have happened? Premium increases between 22 and 88 percent? Let me say this upfront: California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones is either a dunce who does not know what he’s talking about, or he’s a liberal political hack who can’t wait to get a job in the upcoming government socialized health care operation.
Yup. Charles Krauthammer is right. I’m not sure that I have ever seen such wide-spread media bias in my lifetime. The 16 news headlines and ledes I documented on Monday were just the tip of the iceberg, and the faithful are swallowing the meme whole … the mean guys on the Supreme Court are taking away your birth control.
Here is the full, in-context video of which Jim featured portions of on the big radio show today.
The number of people claiming the Hobby Lobby SCOTUS case denies the “rights” of women is alarming. The Facebook posts are out-of-control and completely out of context. People should take the time to read and understand the case Hobby Lobby brought against the government and stop lying about the SCOTUS decision and the case.
As a disclaimer, this information is for the first three months of enrollment prior to Jan. 1, but it is directly from the Department of Health and Human Services.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of Obamacare problems folks, and it’s going to get worse. So far, physicians and other health care providers can not be required to participate in any specific health care insurance plan. They have the option to say “no thank you” when it comes to any plan that would reimburse them less than their costs, or what they think to be the value of their service.
The plan was – and still is – they need huge support from the young crowd who do not have employer-sponsored health insurance to buy into the state or federal exchanges. The goal for the first year was to have 2.8 million enrolled (out of 11.4 million), but total signups are only at 1.1 million through the end of February.
Mary Katherine Ham over at Hot Air notes the Obama administration’s health care team does not seem to be tracking the number of people without health insurance, or the number of previously uninsured who now have coverage. You would think the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) would consider that to be an important benchmark, but they claim they have not been measuring it.
