No, Congress Is Not Exempt From Obamacare

[Note: This article was written before the July 2013 announcement by President Obama's Office of Personnel Management (OPM), that it would allow Members of Congress and their staff to keep their workplace health insurance subsidies despite having to obtain their coverage in a government health exchange.

It isn't true.Will Politico print a retraction? It's more likely that they will merely pat themselves on their collective back, hoist a toast at their favorite DC watering hole, and share a laugh over another episode of successful trolling completed.

Help the Uninsurable, Not The Cronies - Helping Sick Americans Now ACT

As Dean Clancy wrote last week, the House on Wednesday will take up the Helping Sick Americans Now Act (H.R.1549). The bill cuts a slush fund and uses the money to subsidize insurance for the sickest Americans. Congress should pass it.

[Note: Updates to this post are given below my by-line, at the very end of this post.] Next week, the House may take up a bill (H.R.1549, the Helping Sick Americans Now Act), which has been purported to “fix” a part of ObamaCare, and some conservatives are crying foul.

Arkansas Should Not Expand Its Obamacare Exchange

Today, the state of Arkansas is considering funding for what they call a "private option" for Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. It's really just a different way to expand socialized medicine.  The Arkansas legislature should not fund this boondoggle.

Recently I reported on Ohio Republican Representative Barbara Sears’ failing to support The Health Care Freedom Act (HCFA) bill that would help defend Ohioans from Obamacare penalties.  Currently the chances of the HCFA being considered for an additional hearing are weakening, as it has not been listed on the committee schedule.
