Watchdog Podcast: Code Blue–Ohio’s Medicaid expansion already $1 billion over budget

Share

by Eric Boehm and Jason Hart | Watchdog Radio.

Code Blue is Watchdog Radio’s weekly look at heath issues, ranging from the latest public health debates to small government views on health-care reform.

Medicaid and Medicare are breaking the budgets of states and the federal government, but there are other options out there. Is Obamacare the best we can do?

This week, hosts Eric Boehm and Jason Hart take a look at the Medicaid expansion in Ohio, which is running off the rails after less than a year and a half.

As Hart reported this week, after just 17 months, Gov. John Kasich’s Obamacare expansion has cost federal taxpayers $3.7 billion. That’s over $1 billion more than the Kasich administration projected for the

State Representative Justin Simmons Report

I Voted Yes on the Budget Bill This afternoon, I joined a majority of my colleagues in supporting the state budget bill. We passed a fiscally responsible budget that doesn’t raise taxes, increases state funding for education by $370 million and funds Pennsylvania’s core priorities without Gov. Wolf’s reckless spending proposals.House Bill 1192 now moves to the Senate for consideration, with the expectation it will arrive on the governor’s desk before the June 30 budget deadline. We are encouraging him to sign it into law.

…BECAUSE NO TAX SHOULD HAVE THE POWER TO LEAVE YOU HOMELESS!

From the PA Liberty Alliance

Hats off to Casey Bralla and the Coalition Advancing Freedom! They lead the charge for this campaign in Pottstown, western Montgomery and northern Chester Counties. Of course they had some help from the PA Liberty Alliance, CLASTA, Berks County Patriots, Citizens for Liberty, Valley Forge Patriots, Berks Tea Party and the Tri-county Campaign for Liberty who pounded the pavements for 3 Saturdays in and around Pottstown, donated time and money.

Many thanks to Sen Mensch and Rafferty for sending representation to the meeting to echo their support for 76. But the MOST surprising occurrence was the apparent turn about of Rep Hennessey! He has reservations and

from Judicial Watch Federal Court Orders Obama IRS: Answer JW on Lerner Emails Calling all conservative activists, citizens and groups who were silenced and harassed by the Obama Internal Revenue Service in the run-up to the 2012 elections and beyond — you should know that we have moved a few steps closer to holding the Obama administration accountable for its criminal misuse of the federal tax-collecting agency.

We are pleased to announce that Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia granted a Judicial Watch request to issue an order requiring the IRS to provide answers by June 12, 2015, on the status of the Lois Lerner emails the IRS had previously declared lost.

How ‘Affordable’ Will Health Insurance Be in 2016?

Share

by Melissa Quinn at The Daily Signal

For consumers purchasing health insurance under the Affordable Care Act next year, plans may no longer be quite as “affordable” as they were in the past.

Health insurance companies around the country are providing states with their proposed premium rates for 2016, and changes include rate hikes of up to 51 percent in New Mexico and more than 30 percent in Maryland and Tennessee.

The proposed rate changes come as the Supreme Court prepares to deliver its ruling on the case King v. Burwell, which will determine if consumers purchasing insurance on the federal exchange are eligible for subsidies, and as Republicans continue to push for a full repeal of the health care law.

“This is going to

Republicans Plot Next Steps After Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare Subsidies

By Melissa Quinn at the Daily Signal

News: Lawmakers are turning their attention to a budget mechanism that would fast-track a repeal of Obamacare through Congress.

 

On the heels of the freshly handed-down Supreme Court ruling on the legality of the subsidies in federally-run exchanges awarded under President Obama’s health care law, congressional Republicans are turning their attention to a budget mechanism that would fast-track a repeal of Obamacare through Congress.

The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 today in favor of the Obama administration in King v. Burwell, upholding the federal subsidies awarded under the health care law.

The case examined whether consumers purchasing health insurance on the federal exchange, HealthCare.gov, were eligible to receive subsidies. Obamacare’s plain language limited the availability of those

King v. Burwell Decision Changes Nothing for Obamacare Repeal

Share

By former United States Senator Jim DeMint at the Daily Signal

Commentary: In the wake of yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint says it’s now up to Congress to give Americans better health care by repealing Obamacare.

This morning, the Supreme Court handed down a decision in the case of King v. Burwell which maintains, contrary to the plain language of the law, subsidies are available to those who purchase insurance through federal health insurance exchanges set up for states which opted not to create their own. This doesn’t change the responsibility of Congress to repeal Obamacare.

Justice Scalia, joined by Justices Thomas and Alito, pointed to the farce of the majority’s ruling at the beginning of their dissent:

The Court holds
