Doctors May Bear Costs

Is this the law of intended consequences?
Doctors May Bear CostsA recent survey conducted by McKinsey & Company estimated that only 53 percent of previously uninsured enrollees had paid their premiums, while 86 percent of previously insured individuals had paid theirs. According to Forbes, “Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said that insurance companies participating in the ACA exchanges in his state have received payment from only about half of those who applied for coverage. Georgia insurers received more than 220,000 applications for health coverage, but premiums had been paid for only 107,581 of those policies by the end of March.” So who is then left covering the tab during the grace period? Doctors. Read more at bankruptingamerica.org.

Over One Million Will Stop Paying Obamacare Premiums – Betsy McCaughey

On Your World with Neil Cavuto, April 15, 2014, former NY Lt. Governor, author and Obamacare expert Betsy McCaughey spoke about the financial myths of the Affordable Care Act. In this clip she discusses her prediction that over one million people will stop paying their premiums after they discover the real costs of the ACA.

Well, by the looks of this tweet from Healthcare.gov, the Department of Health and Human Services just might agree.

Try to Ignore Earth Day

I can’t wait to see what the Alachua County School Board has in store for my fifth grader grandson tomorrow.  We will be prepared!

AAEarthDayRenewamerica.com: Try to ignore Earth Day, April 22. It won’t be easy. The print and broadcast media will engage in an orgy of environmental tall tales and the usual end-of-the-world predictions. It will scare the heck out of youngsters and bore the heck out of anyone old enough to know that we have had to endure the lies that hide the agendas that have driven the Greens since 1970 when the event was first proclaimed.

The Earth is 4.5 billion years old. It is the third planet from the Sun and fifth-largest of the eight other planets that orbit it. It is the only planet in our galaxy that has life on it and it has an abundance of mineral resources as well as water and the fecundity to grow crops and maintain livestock to sustain the human race.

The climate on Earth is entirely dependent on the natural cycles of the Sun. Despite four decades of being told that the Earth was going to heat up due to greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide and methane, we are currently in a cooling cycle and no child born since 1997 has ever experienced a single day of the dreaded “global warming.”  Read more at renewamerica.com

Cliven Bundy and the Origins of the American Abundance Revolution

Aah… An interesting look into the future – Fifty years from now.

Cliven Bundy Reuters

Today, in the year 2064, as we look back over the last 50 years, it might seem as if the Abundance Revolution was inevitable, since so much wealth was involved. After all, it was wealth just waiting to be unleashed.

Yet paradoxically, on the eve of the Abundance Revolution, many of America’s leaders, on the right as well as the left, were preaching a strict doctrine of overall austerity.

Indeed, as we look back and study the events of 2014, we can see the results of the Green elite’s ideologically-driven effort to squelch even the relatively small amount of prosperity that Americans were then enjoying. That is, it was the Green elites who unwittingly opened the door to the Abundance Revolution and the fantastic increase in wealth that Americans have since realized over the last half-century.

Medically Homeless

Covered CaliforniaThe Obama regime has been pushing the “Get Covered” mantra to urge and coerce people to buy government sponsored health insurance.  Now that the open enrollment period is closed, Obama is bragging that over eight million people have signed up.  Those numbers are suspect, to say the least, but that’s a topic for another post.  Many people are discovering, however, that having insurance is not the same as having health care:

From 5KPIX, the local San Francisco Bay Area CBS TV affiliate:

ConsumerWatch: Some Covered California Patients Say They Can’t See A Doctor

MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) – While open enrollment for coverage under the Affordable Care Act is closed, many of the newly insured are finding they can’t find doctors, landing them into a state described as “medical homelessness [bold type mine].”

Rotacare, a free clinic for the uninsured in Mountain View, is dealing with the problem firsthand.

Mirella Nguyen works at the clinic said staffers dutifully helped uninsured clients sign up for Obamacare so they would no longer need the free clinic.

But months later, the clinic’s former patients are coming back to the clinic begging for help. “They’re coming back to us now and saying I can’t find a doctor, “said Nguyen.

Thinn Ong was thrilled to qualify for a subsidy on the health care exchange.  She is paying $200 a month in premiums. But the single mother of two is asking, what for?

“Yeah, I sign it. I got it. But where’s my doctor? Who’s my doctor? I don’t know,” said a frustrated Ong.  Read more at sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com.

Amy Kremer has Resigned From Tea Party Express

‘I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while,’ Kremer says

Amy-Kremer ResEarlier today, I learned in an email that my friend Amy Kremer has resigned from Tea Party Express.  She has been in the Tea Party/Conservative movement since day one and Chairman of TPE for quite some time.  It didn’t take very long after the initial shock wore off for my excitement to build as I realized that she must be headed for new challenges in the effort to save our republic.  From Amy’s Facebook page:

Friends, I resigned from Tea Party Express. I wanted to share the news with you!

Louisville, KY – Amy Kremer announced today her resignation as Chairman of the Tea Party Express, effective immediately:

“This has been a really difficult decision for me, but the time has come for me to leave Tea Party Express. I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while, but also wanted to make sure that any change I make was also a positive change for the conservative movement.

“So as we move into this election cycle, I think the time is right.

“As one of the only remaining members of the original tour, Tea Party Express has been a huge part of my life and I am proud of the historic work we accomplished – like partnering with CNN to host the first ever Tea Party Presidential Debate and electing conservatives such as Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to Congress.

“The past 5 years of working with the conservative grassroots movement has been the most meaningful of my life. As one of the original founders of the modern day tea party movement, I am humbled by the community of activists who have built it. I’ve very grateful to the many people I’ve met and worked with along the way.

“While I can’t give the specifics yet, my new projects will keep me working in that movement. While I may no longer be on a bus, I will definitely be on the ground, continuing my work in the movement and for the conservative cause. I’m excited about engaging in competitive Senate primaries and supporting fiscal conservatives in the coming weeks.”

In an article that appeared on CNN’s PoliticalTicker blog published shortly after Kremer’s Facebook post, some of the specifics about her future were revealed.  Mitch McConnell can’t be too pleased.  Hint: I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she made her announcement from Kentucky.  Read the piece on PoliticalTicker.com here.

Ukrainian Jews Told To Register Or Be Deported

Is history repeating itself?

Ukraine remembers Babi Yar massacre

Pro-Russian Group Denies Producing Ukraine Jewish ‘Registration’ Leaflets.

Ukrainian Jews leaving Passover eve prayers were handed leaflets ordering them to either register with an interim government trying to make the eastern province of Donetsk Russian – or face deportation.

But the pro-Russian separatist leader of Donetsk whose name was on the leaflets denied his organization was behind their printing, raising doubts about their authenticity and origin.

“Some idiots yesterday were giving out these flyers in targeted areas,” Denis Pushilin said in an interview with Ukrainian press, the website Think Progress reported Thursday.

The alarming report on the flyers in Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website, said armed, masked men were waiting outside one synagogue to hand worshipers leaflets telling them to register with separatist forces.

The flyers said all Jews in the province over the age of 16 must register, provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee of about $50 or “else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated.”

The leaflets also were handed out in other areas where pro-Russian activists have defied an ultimatum from Kiev to surrender, and asserted Donetsk is an independent “people’s republic.” Read more at newsmax.com.

Note: When this article was first published by newsmax.com on Thursday afternoon, it strongly suggested that the new pro-Russian government was responsible for this despicable anti-semitic act. However, its leader, Denis Pushilin, denied any connection to the fliers. Only time will tell.  Newsmax.com updated their post at 11:43 PM.
