House Freedom Caucus and GOP establishment in Obamacare smackdown

For several years now under the feckless leadership of Mitch McConnell, the GOP promise to repeal Obamacare “root and branch” has proven to be nothing more than another election year lie designed to trick Conservatives into voting for Republicans. One…

GOP: Obamacare repeal and replace is now retreat and repair

When the members of the new GOP-controlled 115th Congress were sworn-in last month, it included many of the old faces from the old GOP-controlled 114th Congress, along with their old feckless leadership. One area where this is most evident is…

SEIU Healthcare’s corruption?

This article highlights some questionable activities during the SEIU Healthcare’s organizing drive.

GOP “retreat” on Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood

Following an election where the American people gave the repugnant (oops, I mean Republican) party full control of Washington, D.C., the invertebrate GOP held their annual “retreat”–a word that has historically carried more than one meaning when discussing the party…

Premium relief bill passed

Republicans and the DFL found a way to compromise this week. Republicans accepted Gov. Dayton’s plan to provide premium relief for people buying health insurance on the individual market but made too much to qualify for federal premium support. Gov. Dayton accepted the Republicans’ reforms. In the end, neither side got everything they wanted, which […]

Gov. Dayton proposes single-payer

Speaker Daudt and Senate Majority Leader Gazelka should reject Gov. Dayton’s proposal to ‘reform’ health care by going to a single-payer plan. The article starts by saying “A new form of health insurance could be available next year to Minnesotans in the individual health insurance market if a proposal by Gov. Mark Dayton gains approval […]

DFL’s, Tina Liebling’s hysteria

Tina Liebling’s most recent e-letter update is a portrait of the DFL’s hysteria. I first noticed Rep. Liebling’s hysteria when I spotted this hysterical tweet, which said “House GOP passed plan to let insurance companies sell junk insurance w/o coverage for things like cancer, Lyme disease, autism.” Rep. Liebling didn’t like it when I challenged […]

Democrats overplay CBO report

It’s apparent that Democrats are overplaying the CBO’s report on repealing the ACA. It’s apparent after reading this Washington Post article. That’s apparent based on the opening paragraph of their article, which says “At least 18 million people would lose health insurance in the first year if Republicans move ahead with plans to repeal major portions […]

Obamacare and Trumpcare – Same song, different verse

Do you remember when Barack Obama said the following words when he was promoting the Affordable Care Act to the American people? We’re going to have insurance for everybody. There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t…

Democrats’ disheartening dishonesty

If there’s anything more disheartening than the Democrats’ dishonesty about the Anything But Affordable Care Act, I can’t find it. Elizabeth Warren’s op-ed is the latest in a lengthy list of dishonest anti-Republican diatribes. In the opening paragraph of her diatribe, Sen. Warren, aka Pocahontas (according to President-Elect Trump), she said “For eight years, Republicans […]

This week in the legislature

Yesterday, I got my weekly e-letter update from my state representative, Jim Knoblach.

While the governor’s proposal provides immediate relief, House Republicans […]

Pro-ACA propaganda spreading

This article parrots Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel’s talking point that high risk pools “are prohibitively expensive.” Bob Bryan wrote that “Ryan said Republicans planned to replace Obamacare with high-risk pools, which had been used by states before the ACA was passed, so that Jeans and others could continue to get coverage. Health-policy experts have been wary […]

CNN hosts Paul Ryan’s town hall

One of the major highlights of CNN’s townhall meeting with Speaker Ryan at George Washington University came during the question of the night. That’s when Speaker Ryan announced that the House would repeal the ACA and pass the Republican replacement “at the same time, and in some cases in the same bill.” Speaker Ryan continued, […]

Croman’s pro-DFL bias showing

John Croman’s article reads like a DFL propaganda piece. That’s mostly because that’s what it is. The article starts by saying “Minnesota’s top budget official warned Monday that the Republican health insurance premium relief plan will significantly delay aid payments to those facing sharp increases in 2017. Commissioner Myron Frans, who heads the Minnesota Management […]

Repealing the ACA

If she doesn’t watch it, Patty Murray will explode. According to this article, Murray went on a diatribe of epic proportions, saying “If Republicans repeal the Affordable Care Act, it’s women, kids, seniors, patients with serious illnesses, and people with disabilities who will bear the burden. Premiums will skyrocket. Out-of-pocket prescription drug costs will rise. […]

Factchecking factcheckers

I’m getting tired of having to factcheck professional ‘factcheckers’. The worst ‘factchecker’ is Politifact but others are ‘gaining ground’ on them. Shortly after my computer returned from the shop, I saw this factcheck, which is critical of Donald Trump’s tweets about the ACA. In Factcheck’s article, they cite this tweet from Gov. Dayton where he […]
