Obamacare raised the cost of health insurance.  The only questions is how you’ll pay for it:  indirectly through higher taxes or directly through higher premiums.  Pick your poison.

Handing over the navigation of a federal bureaucracy from the veteran to a private doctor doesn’t solve the problem.  We must free our veterans from a federal bureaucracy and let them choose their own doctor and treatment without waiting for the approval of a VA bureaucrat.

Eric Cantor’s Loss - What it means for Obamacare

For the first time, a Majority Leader of the House was defeated in a primary election. It is important to note that his challenger, Dave Brat, committed himself in writing to the repeal of Obamacare while Eric Cantor did not. Visit www.therepealpledge.com to learn who has signed and who has not.

A system in which there is no recourse, no accountability, and no options.  The VA system is the future of the healthcare system unless we act now.   

A doctor who lost his license to practice medicine in New York is put in charge of The Miami VA with responsibility for our veterans health.  This is the kind of accountability the federal government gives those who sacrificed the most for our country. 

This is what government controlled health care looks like.  Besides the long waiting lists, corruption, and inefficiency, you have politicians protecting their political supporters at the expense of patients.  In this case, those patients are veterans and Bernie Sanders is blocking a house-cleaning at the VA.  Tell Sen. Sanders what you think at 202-224-5141.

Because of the constantly changing provisions of the health care law and the administrations refusal to disclose information, the Congressional Budget Office now states that they cannot estimate the fiscal effect of the law.  We had to pass the bill to find out what’s not in it.

CNN got it right on the money.  This article was published in June of 2009 and predicted correctly that Americans would lose 5 freedoms that they used to enjoy including the ability to keep your doctor and the ability to keep you policy.  Read this article for the full list.   

A top-down, federally-run, one-size-fits-all massive bureaucracy will not serve our veterans well no matter who runs it.  Fraud, waste and indifference to customers are intrinsic to monopolistic systems like the VA.  The Obama Administration would like to move the rest of us into a similar system to the one that has failed our veterans.  Vets fought for our freedom, let’s fight for theirs and get them the care they deserve.

The National Federation of Independent Business warns, “…employers who currently offer health insurance to their employees are experiencing devastating premium cost increases.”  What will that mean to your health?  No one knows.

Nancy Pelosi famously said we had to pass the ACA bill to know what’s in it. But, as this NY Times article details, the administration keeps writing the bill long after it’s been passed.  The endless changes to the law cause uncertainty among employers and therefore less hiring and lower economic growth. 

States are experiencing a surge in Medicaid enrollments but contrary to administration claims, many of these will not be paid for by the federal government.  States, get ready for a budget-buster.

An interesting collection of how other governments “control” cost.  The answer, of course, is rationing.  And the solution?  Always “more money”.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin took to the floor of the Senate in 2009 and confirmed that the VA’s medical system is indeed “government health care”.  He went on to claim that reports of delays and rationing were fictitious.  What do you suppose the odds are of him correcting the record? What are the odds of him reconsidering his position on greater government control over health care for the rest of us?
