Here’s Proof ACA is Working

HEALTH CARE SPENDING INCREASES HIT NEW LOW

Health care costs rose by only 1.3% a year from 2010 to 2013, a new report from the White House Council on Economic Advisers shows. That’s the lowest increase in a three-year period on record. White House officials cite the 2010 Affordable Care Act as a main factor in lowering costs…”

“Reduced health care costs for employers could lead to 200,000 to 400,000 new jobs per year by the second half of the decade, said Jason Furman, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.

“If just half the recent slowdown in spending can be sustained, health care spending a decade from now will be $1,400 per person lower,” Furman said.

The Council of Economic Advisers report released Wednesday also said health care inflation is the lowest it has been in 50 years.”

“Because of cost reductions, the Congressional Budget Office reduced Medicare and Medicaid spending projections in 2020 by $147 billion since 2010, the report noted.”

“Private insurance spending grew at an annual rate of 1.6% in the past three years, Furman said, while Medicare spending had 0.0% growth rate and Medicaid spending was “actually minus 0.5%.”

Truth Be Told – We’re Doing Well

Once again there are those out there that just love attacking anything this administration does or doesn’t do.  Allow me to enlighten you to just a few facts about how our nation is doing so far.

We’ve gotten through a Great Depression (as GW Bush called it).  According to MarketWatch, the stock markets are at records highs, retailers and corporations are making record profits, employers are hiring again (instead of cutting like we’ve been told they would over Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare)).

Yesterday the news reported that GM stocks rose because investors found out by year end the government would no longer own it.

Gas prices are hovering around $3.00.  In July of 2008, prices were above the $4 range and when Obama became president they were around $2.80.  Within weeks of the GOP winning the House they were above $3.00.

Unemployment rate is at the same level it was in 2008 at 7.2%.  Yes the rate needs to be lower.  The point is, even during the Great Recession, the administration has been able to get that rate back down from above 10% that it was in 2010. 

The two wars will be over soon and the administration has kept us safe for five years now.

If you listen to the so-called “Liberal” media you’d think the Affordable Care Act has failed; but truth be told, over one million Americans signed up for health insurance or researched their qualifications for assistance just in the first month it began.  You’d also think Democrats were hurting Americans by giving them a chance to have good health for less cost in the future.

Those of you that lost your health coverage should be yelling at your insurance company.  They knew -before- the ACA was voted on that they’d be dropping your plans.  Why didn’t they warn you?  They wanted the bill to pass, that’s why.  It gives them more customers and the opportunity to drop old policies and make new ones, charging you more, while at the same time blaming Democrats for having to do so.  Did your company bother telling you that you could possibly find a cheaper plan using the GetCoveredIllinois.com website or by calling 1-800-318-2596? I doubt it.

The country is doing better than it was when GW Bush left office.  If you’ve followed the news you also know -that success- is not because Republicans were doing their jobs.

Bad News for ObamaCare (ACA)?

I’m a bit confused.  How is having over a million folks signing up for health care, one way or another, in the first month, “bad news” as some in the media are reporting?

They start out by saying only 106,185 people had chosen a private health insurance plan and only 26,794 people did so via the troubled federally run insurance exchanges.  Further down in their story however, they point out that nearly a MILLION people have signed up to find out whether they qualify for subsidies or not, they have only to pick a plan now.

The administration has ALWAYS predicted slow enrollments, even before the troubles site started up, read this article.  They also point out that the Federal ACA signups are beating  Massachusetts’s pace when they implemented their version of ACA (which Affordable Care Act(ObamaCare) is a copy of).

It would seem that the media is working with the GOP in trying to destroy any chance of the ACA to be successful.  To work, everybody needs to have insurance.  The GOP know this.  What better way to hurt the Democrats but to let their number one achievement (Health Care for All) fail.

Even the Speaker of the House, Rep. Boehner, made plans back in July of this year to STOP ObamaCare.

Offensive Pictures

 

I’m curious how people would feel if people went around wearing KKK outfits or hood pictures on their clothing, or if they wore pics ‘celebrating’ dead gassed jews, or an African american being hung, or the twin towers coming down? What about a pic of somebody celebrating the burning of the cross? Would you call it ‘freedom of speech’? Is there no limit to what you will accept being displayed or said?

I’m not zeroing in on any one topic, just curious to how folks feel. Should we allow ‘speech’ like this? Isn’t there a law against causing fights/riots or disturbing the peace? Can this law be used to stop such pictures?  Should it be?

I note what WikiPedia says about Disturbing the Peace:

“Disturbing the peace is a crime generally defined as the unsettling of proper order in a public space through one’s actions. This can include creating loud noise by fighting or challenging to fight, disturbing others by loud and unreasonable noise (including loud music), or using offensive words.”

Should Offensive Pictures be included in this law, if so why?

October’s Job Report

 

Jobs report for Oct 2013

Imagine the jobs report if businesses that don’t approve of President Obama would have actually SHARED their profits by hiring new workers and giving low wage earners a little more in pay.

Our nation was left in a mess by a Republican president (G.W. Bush) in 2008.  As that president pointed out, we were headed for another Great Depression.  The current Democrat President (Barack Obama) was able to keep us afloat while at the same time pass a health care bill that no other president could do.  He was also able to get us out of Iraq and finish the job in Afghanistan.  That same president is current having talks with the Iranian government to stop their nuclear warheads from being built, something no other president has been able to do.

The list of things this Democrat president has been able to accomplish during his 6 years in office are amazing considering he had the worst ever Congress to work with and a House of Representatives being led by the Republican Party of which their only stated goal was to ‘Stop Obama’ since the day he took office.  Imagine what could have been accomplished with just a ‘normal’ Congress that was willing to compromise to get things done.
