  1. How does the ACA affect you?

  2. PP-ACA

    The NFL is passing on a proposal from the White House to have the league promote President Obama’s health care reform law.

    Any comments?

  3. Reprieve is not repeal – but it is a good start

    The Obama administration has just offered a one-year break to employers who were supposed to start offering health insurance to their workers next year.


    Such a deal!



  4. The Affordable Care Act and the Death of Personal Responsibility

  5. A History Lesson

    Going into a bit of U.S. History 101, it was in the year 1854 when the first federal healthcare reform effort was initially passed through the congress in the United States (but vetoed by the 14th President of the United States, Franklin Pierce).

    We’ve come a long way since then – in March 2010 not only did the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act pass through congress, it was signed into law making a historic impact on the U.S. healthcare system!

    The passing of this bill has caused the health industry to undergo a very accelerated change, which would significantly alter the way we finance, manage, deliver, and consume health care.

  6. Unions Warn of Dire ACA Consequences

    Union members were among President Obama’s most ardent foot soldiers in the 2010 health reform battles.

    But recently, labor increasingly is blasting parts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the most dire terms possible. Unless a fix is enacted, “the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40-hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class,” the heads of three large unions warned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a scathing letter last month.

    Union leaders assert the ACA has put in place “perverse incentives” that are “creating nightmare scenarios” for workers in multi-employer plans. That is according to a July 11 letter to Reid and Pelosi from James Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters; Joseph Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union; and D. Taylor, president of UNITE-HERE. The first scenario they underscore is the incentive to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week.

    “Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly,” the union leaders write. “The impact is two-fold: fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.”

  7. Individual mandate to be delayed by up to six weeks

    What do you think of that?

    Dr. Keyton


  8. Obama Would Have Few Options If SCOTUS Rules Against ACA

    If the Supreme Court tears apart Obamacare this summer, the president won’t be able to put it back together all by himself. Executive action is all the rage in the White House these days, and it’s hard to imagine a better candidate for unilateralism than fixing the Affordable Care Act in the wake of a crippling Supreme Court decision.

    There’s just one problem: A good administrative solution might not exist. “There are no administrative fixes that are realistic,” said Neera Tanden, president of the liberal Center for American Progress. “We don’t believe there’s any administrative fix.”

  10. ACA Repeal Would Increase The Number Uninsured by 81%

    The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recently released a prospective analysis on the outcome of repealing the Affordable Care Act. Here are some key findings from the report:

    • ACA repeal would increase the number of uninsured people by 24 million by 2021, or 81%.
    • 81% of those losing coverage would be in working families, and 40% would be young adults.
    • There would be 14.5 million fewer people with Medicaid coverage in 2021.
    • 9.4 million people who would have received tax credits for private coverage would receive no assistance.
    • State spending would increase by $68.5 billion between 2017 and 2026.
    • ACA repeal would reduce federal spending on health care for the nonelderly by $90.9 billion in 2021.
