McConnell just not giving up. TrumpRyanMcConnellCare 4.0

7.18.17 - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has not had luck repealing/replacing/delaying legislation regarding the ACA. News is changing rapidly on what is the latest that McConnell is attempting when it comes to dismantling health care for Americans.

As of today, Tuesday, July 18, 2017, he is now on a mission to repeal the ACA with NO replacement - a FULL OUTRIGHT REPEAL. However, Profiles in Courage Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) confirmed they would not vote for a repeal bill that delayed enacting the policy by two years. Ironically, The Women Senators were all cut out of the Senate’s initial working group to draft the Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill — a group inclusive of 13 Caucasian men. Senator McConnell is still planning to take a vote.

So where is Ohio's Senator Rob Portman on this issue? He has been very tight-lipped. It is time to call Senator Portman - EVERY DAY TWICE A DAY - to ask him to vote NO on Trumpcare 4.0:

  • Washington DC - 202.224.3353
  • Toledo - 419.259.3895
  • Toll Free in Ohio - 800.205.OHIO

What happens if the ACA is repealed?

  • 700,000+ Ohioans will loose health care coverage
  • Ohio's Medicaid Expansion will be phased out
  • Some 18 million Americans would lose health insurance coverage
  • Some 14 million Americans would lose Medicaid coverage
  • Premiums would rise by 20 to 25 percent within the first year after repeal, according to projections outlined by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office in January and based on a previous bill to repeal key provisions of Obamacare
  • A $137 billion increase in the federal deficit from 2016 to 2025

 

Senate GOP leaders will present health bill this week, even as divisions flare | Washington Post

3 Republican governors sign on to letter rejecting 'Trumpcare'
Bob Bryan | Business Insider

6.16.17 - Three Republican governors — John Kasich of Ohio, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts — signed onto a letter sent to congressional leaders Friday rejecting the current iteration of the GOP healthcare bill.

In the letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, three Republican governors and four Democratic governors called for bipartisan efforts to reform the healthcare system.

"While we certainly agree that reforms need to be made to our nation’s health care system, as Governors from both sides of the political aisle, we feel that true and lasting reforms are best approached by finding common ground in a bipartisan fashion," the letter said.

The governors also admonished the House GOP version of the American Health Care Act for creating more problems in the healthcare system than it solves.

"It calls into question coverage for the vulnerable and fails to provide the necessary resources to ensure that no one is left out, while shifting significant costs to the states," said the letter. "Medicaid provisions included in this bill are particularly problematic. Instead, we recommend Congress address factors we can all agree need fixing."

All three states took advantage of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion, which the House bill would phase out.

Here's the full letter and signees:

Dear Majority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Schumer:

We have watched with great interest the recent debate and House passage of H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act. While we certainly agree that reforms need to be made to our nation’s health care system, as Governors from both sides of the political aisle, we feel that true and lasting reforms are best approached by finding common ground in a bipartisan fashion.

To that end, we remain hopeful that there is an opportunity to craft solutions to these challenges that can find support across party lines, delivering improvements to result in a system that is available and affordable for every American.

We believe that, first and foremost, Congress should focus on improving our nation’s private health insurance system. Improvements should be based on a set of guiding principles, included below, which include controlling costs and stabilizing the market, that will positively impact the coverage and care of millions of Americans, including many who are dealing with mental illness, chronic health problems, and drug addiction.

Unfortunately, H.R. 1628, as passed by the House, does not meet these challenges. It calls into question coverage for the vulnerable and fails to provide the necessary resources to ensure that no one is left out, while shifting significant costs to the states. Medicaid provisions included in this bill are particularly problematic. Instead, we recommend Congress address factors we can all agree need fixing.

We stand ready to work with you and your colleagues to develop a proposal that is fiscally sound and provides quality, affordable coverage for our most vulnerable citizens.

Sincerely,

John R. Kasich, Governor of Ohio; Steve Bullock, Governor of Montana; Brian Sandoval, Governor of Nevada; John W. Hickenlooper, Governor of Colorado; Charles D. Baker, Governor of Massachusetts; Tom Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania; John Bel Edwards, Governor of Louisiana

John Kasich pans new Republican healthcare bill 
By Andrew J. Tobias | Cleveland.com 

5.08.17 - Kasich not impressed: Ohio Gov. John Kasich during a Sunday appearance on CNN's "State of the Union"panned the healthcare bill Republican House members passed on Friday.

Kasich told host Jake Tapper the bill too abruptly cuts the 90 percent reimbursement the federal government promised to states under the Affordable Care Act to help pay for Medicaid expansion, which provided healthcare to 700,000 Ohioans.

"You are going to have a lot of people... where are they going to go? That's a real problem," Kasich said. "And that doesn't mean the system doesn't need to be reformed. It can be. But this was -- this was not great. And it is going to go to the Senate. And I hope and pray they are going to write a much bigger bill."

I'm not here to talk about that: Tapper tried to get Kasich to project whether the healthcare bill would be a drag on Republican congressional candidates in 2020.

 

 

Trump calls House TrumpCare legislation 'mean'. Really?

 

Why is the GOP Senate - specifically thirteen white males - holding secret, deliberative meetings to craft the Senate's health care legislation? In the meantime, both Republicans and Democrats voice concern and demand open, transparent process. Please review the articles below as we follow these closed-door sessions:

How will Ohioans be affected if ACA repealed?

12.28.16 - According to ProgressOhio, 964,000 Ohioans benefit from the ACA - almost 1 million Ohioans could lose medical coverage. That’s equivalent to the number of people living in Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron and Dayton combined.

Congressional Republicans are embarking on a radical, unprecedented plan to take away health coverage for millions of Ohio families including, according to HHS:

  • 2 million Ohioans who have benefited from no-cost preventive services
  • 1 million Ohioans who no longer have to worry about lifetime caps
  • 664,000 Ohioans who gained coverage
  • 243,000 Ohioans who received tax credits for their premiums
  • 81,000 Ohioans under the age of 26 who are able to remain on their parents’ plans

Before Senator Portman votes to repeal the ACA, he owes it to Ohioans to present a replacement plan that would not cause Ohio to go backwards.

Debunking Republican Health Care Myths
New York Times | The Editorial Board - Opinion

4.19.16 - “Disaster.” “Incredible economic burden.” “The biggest job-killer in this country.”

Central to the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz has been the claim that the Affordable Care Act has been a complete failure, and that the only way to save the country from this scourge is to replace it with something they design.

It’s worth examining the big myths they are peddling about the Affordable Care Act and also their ill-conceived plans of what might replace it.

Millions of people have lost their insurance: In January, Mr. Cruz claimed that “millions of Americans” had lost their health insurance because of the health reform law. He even claimed to be one of them, saying “our health care got canceled” because Blue Cross Blue Shield left the individual market in Texas.

Insurers did stop offering some plans after the law took effect, including those that didn’t provide required benefits like maternity care or that charged higher premiums to older or sicker people. But people with those plans had the opportunity to sign up for others. And over all, the law has drastically reduced the number of Americans who lack health insurance. According to the Census Bureau, the number of uninsured Americans dropped by 10 million between 2010, when the law passed, and 2014. While critics said employers might stop offering health insurance because of the law, three million people actually gained coverage through their employers between 2010 and 2014.

Incidentally, Mr. Cruz never lost his health insurance. Blue Cross Blue Shield did cancel his particular plan, but it automatically moved him and his family to a new one. A Cruz spokeswoman said the senator had been misinformed by his insurance broker.

Millions of people have lost their jobs: Mr. Cruz has called the Affordable Care Act “the biggest job-killer in this country” and said “millions of Americans have lost their jobs, have been forced into part-time work” because of it. This is false. The unemployment rate has fallen since the law took effect, PolitiFact notes, as has the number of people working part time when they would rather work full time. A2015 study using data from the Current Population Survey found that the law “had virtually no adverse effect on labor force participation, employment or usual hours worked per week through 2014.”

Reduce costs by weakening state regulations: Mr. Trump frequently talks about his plan to “get rid of the lines around the states” to foster competition among insurance companies. Customers in states where insurance is heavily regulated, the thinking goes, would be able to save money if they could purchase coverage from insurers based in states with fewer rules. Mr. Cruz, too, supports allowing people to buy insurance across state borders — it’s one of the few proposals he’s offered for replacing the health law if it is repealed.

But the biggest obstacle stopping insurers from setting up in more states is not regulation; it’s the difficulty of establishing a network of providers in a new market. And such a structure would destroy the longstanding ability of states to regulate health insurance for their populations. Some states, for instance, require coverage for infertility treatment and others have chosen not to. Allowing cross-border plans would encourage insurers to base themselves in low-regulation states, and the result might be a proliferation of poor-quality plans.

The Affordable Care Act is not perfect. Premiums for plans on the exchanges rose between 2015 and 2016 and are likely to rise again next year. A few insurers have left the exchange market, raising concerns in some quarters that more companies might follow.

But the law has helped millions of Americans, especially low-wage workers like cashiers, cooks and waiters who previously struggled to pay for coverage. In inventing problems that don’t exist and proposing solutions that won’t help, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz show that they don’t care about helping Americans get health care, which has never been their interest. They want to trash the Affordable Care Act, and they’re willing to mislead the public any way they can.

 

3.23.16 - Six years ago on March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act - The ACA.  The White House has provided a few resource to honor this historic and important occasion, and hope you will join in celebrating the 6th Anniversary of the law by amplifying our collective success through your network and on social media.

Social Security: Privatization. What does this mean?

Should Social Security be privatized?
Pros and Cons of debate.

Privatization means increased retirement risks, severe cuts in Social Security benefits, and a multi-trillion dollar increase in the federal debt. Privatization diverts money out of Social Security into individual accounts leaving an even larger solvency problem.

OR

Privatizing Social Security can boost workers' rate of return by allowing retirement contributions to be invested in private assets, such as stocks, which yield a better return than the present pay-as-you-go retirement system.

Presidential Executive Orders

Executive orders are issued by United States presidents to help officers and agencies of the executive branch manage operations within the federal government.

At the federal level of government in the United States, laws are made almost exclusively by legislation. Such legislation originates as an Act of Congress passed by the Congress of the United States (and its predecessor, the Continental Congress); such acts were either signed into law by the President or passed by Congress after a presidential veto.

However, legislation is not the only source of regulations which have the force of law. There is also judge-made common law and constitutional law. The President can issue executive orders pursuant to a grant of discretion from Congress, or under the inherent powers that office holds to deal with certain matters of foreign policy.

Many early executive orders were not recorded. The State Department began numbering executive orders in the early 20th century, starting retroactively from President Abraham Lincoln's Executive Order Establishing a Provisional Court in Louisiana issued in 1862.
