The GOP Has a New Health Plan—and It Sounds Exactly Like the Old One

House Republican leaders have come up with a new health care proposal. And based on a report in the Washington Post, it will look a lot like their old health care proposals—the ones that would have done very little to improve access, reduce financial distress, and contain health care spending. But this new plan would be different in one key respect. Implementing this sort of Republican plan now would probably mean taking away coverage from quite a lot of people who just got it. That’s a pretty big deal.

Of course, they don’t admit that. The main feature of the Republican approach, according to the Post’s Robert Costa, will be cross-state purchasing, expansion of high-risk pools, and malpractice reform. The idea, which Republicans have been talking about for 20 years, would mean that somebody in, say, New York could buy a policy from a carrier in, say, North Dakota. Sounds great, right? We order shoes from far-flung websites and drive across the state line for beer—why not do the same for health insurance? Here’s why: A big reason coverage in places like New York has gotten expensive is local rules designed for protect people from insurance companies’ misbehavior. In New York, carriers must sell to anybody, regardless of pre-existing condition, and they must provide a reasonably comprehensive set of benefits.

More Insured Under Bush

More Insured Under Bush
Apr. 8, 2014

Gallup reports,“In the U.S., the uninsured rate dipped to 15.6% in the first quarter of 2014, a 1.5-percentage-point decline from the fourth quarter of 2013. The uninsured rate is now at the lowest level recorded since late 2008.”

All fine and dandy, right? As anticipated, there's more to this poll.

PJMedia's Charlie Martin explains:“The low was 14.4 percent, just before the financial crisis”– in other words, under George W. Bush.

Martin continues,“Since Obama was inaugurated in 2009, the net change is from 15.4 percent uninsured to 15.6 percent. So the net effect has been that by the Gallup Survey the number of uninsured has improved in the last year, but gotten worse since Obama was inaugurated, and is 1.2 percent worse than under Bush.”

That equates to about 3.6 million fewer Americans today covered by insurance, even with the ObamaCare mandate. Aren't Obamanomics and ObamaCare great?

Massive Premium Increases

Health Insurance: 14.5 Million to Get Massive Increases
April 8, 2014

The price of health insurance premiums on plans purchased outside of the federal and state exchanges are much higher than expected, a survey of brokers found.

A proprietary survey of 148 brokers conducted by Morgan Stanley analysts revealed the largest acceleration in small and individual group rates in the survey’s history, Forbes contributor Scott Gottlieb of the conservative American Enterprise Institute first noted.
...
The Morgan Stanley report attributed the increases to “changes under the ACA” including the new excise taxes being levied on insurance plans, and the new requirements that plans provide more robust coverage.
...
The latest survey found that states seeing the steepest price increases for off-exchange individual plans include Delaware—where off-exchange plans increased by 100 percent, New Hampshire increased by 90 percent, Indiana by 54 percent, California by 53 percent and Connecticut by 45 percent.

Meanwhile, as Forbes noted, small group market plans increased the most in Washington by 588 percent, Pennsylvania by 66 percent and California by 37 percent

No love here: Why Jeb Bush is losing the conservative pundit primary

Jeb Bush has achieved his goal: he’s got the chattering classes yakking about him as a presidential candidate.

Unfortunately for him, the chatter is mostly negative, especially on the right.

And maybe that’s what the former Florida governor wanted to find out.

Bush seems a reluctant candidate, at least compared to Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and many other Republican wannabes. So he was using the media spotlight the other day in Texas, including a Fox News interview, to essentially dare his party to accept him.

Here, according to my handy-dandy pundit psychoanalyzing machine, is the subtext of his comments.

So you think you want another Bush on the ticket? You’d be getting a guy who believes in compassion for illegal immigrants. I’m not going to play the self-deportation pandering game. Message: I care, as my dad used to say. You’re also getting a guy who believes in education reform, including Common Core, the program that Republicans love to hate. If I do this, I’m going to run a hopeful campaign, not a slash-and-burn operation. And if you don’t want me, fine. I don’t need this gig.

Illegal Immigrant Dies

Obama aunt who stayed in U.S. illegally dies at 61
April 8, 201

President Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was denied asylum in the United States but stayed illegally for years, died Tuesday at age 61.

Onyango, whose immigration status was reported by The Associated Press days before Obama’s election in 2008, had been treated in recent months for cancer and respiratory problems, Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong said. She died in a Boston rehabilitation center, said Wong, who represented her in her immigration case.

Onyango, a half-sister of Obama’s late father, moved from Kenya to the U.S. in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She remained in the country illegally, living in Boston public housing.

Retirement assets at the end of 2013 were the highest on record, a strong indication that many savers have seen their investment accounts bounce back from the financial crisis of 2008 when the stock market fell so hard it lost nearly half its value.

Following a strong equity market in 2013, retirement assets at the end of the year had grown to $19 trillion compared to $16.3 trillion at the end of 2012, according to the Retirement Market Insights Report 2014 prepared by Chicago-based Spectrem Group.

"The total retirement assets now are greater than they were before the recession," said George Walper Jr., president of Spectrem Group. "All of the accounts have grown primarily due to record stock markets last year.

"But people also are continuing to make contributions to their retirement accounts. More people are working now — due to lower unemployment — and more employers also have restarted matching 401(k) plan contributions. All these things are driven by the economy as a whole being stronger today versus 2009."

In 2013, there was $7.8 trillion in company 401(k) retirement plans; $6.2 trillion invested in Individual Retirement Accounts; $3.9 trillion in public sector retirement accounts; and $985.4 billion in 403(b) retirement plans, according to Spectrem Group.

Thanks Barack !

The stock market has recently reached an all-time high and has many looking at their 401Ks and celebrating their exceptionally good fortune. However, I wouldn’t pop the corks on those champagne bottles just yet. There’s a chance that this bubble is about to burst.
Drudge reports that 8.5 million Americans left the labor force during that same time period while unemployment remains unacceptably high at 7.9%. It was suggested on Forbes that the real unemployment rate is somewhere in the neighborhood of 14.7%. USA Today reports on the anemic growth of the US GDP. Even Forbes asks the question,“Why is Wall Street winning right now and everyone else seems to be losing?”
Chief investment strategist and CEO of Fearless Wealth, RC Peck says that the “federal Reserve stimulus and government borrowing to meet its obligations are driving stocks to record highs on a daily basis”, and I tend to agree.
In an article on Market Consensus titled,“Stock Market Correction is Imminent – Time to Take Profits (2013)“, it states,“Continual quantitative easing by the U.S. Federal Reserve has been a major factor contributing to the rise in asset prices.”
Thanks to the government, the National Debt is now 17.5 Trillion. Every person share of this is 55K. THATS why the market is up. Only a Kool-Aid drinking monkey would celebrate this BS "economic recovery"

Might I add a few errors to your post........unemployment is at 6.7%...( look it up )....Might I add that unemployment rate under Reagan in 1982 was over 10.80 %( look it up ).... The stock market doesn't equate the national debt at all. Debt will continue to rise double-triple fold in the next 20 years, I don't care who's in the Whitehouse.
While Bush destroyed the housing market, the banking system, and Wall Street stealing our money., not counting the 2 wars he put on the Amerikan Express charge card. We've come a long way from a President that ruined the country and almost wiped out every middle class workers 401K and many more investment plans that they so needed for their retirement years. If Romney would have been elected we'd have millions of people homeless and standing in soup lines.
Thanks Barack!

The first to go was the call to make sacrifices for your country. After the 9/11 attacks, the entire country was united behind the President. But instead of asking Americans to make sacrifices for their country in a time of war, Bush told us to go on vacation.

Bush’s greatest mistake was gutting the military by illegally invading Iraq, instead of crushing Al Qaeda and killing or capturing Osama bin Laden. The war in Iraq stretched the military to the breaking point, shattered the budget, and divided the country in a time of war.

No matter what you think of Bill Clinton (draft dodger, philanderer, cheat), you have to admit that he is highly intelligent and that he did a great job with the economy. George W. Bush, on the other hand, is a man of average intelligence who presided over a historic collapse of the American economy.

For those of us who staunchly believe in conservative principles such as a balance budget, a strong military, and service to our country, the question is simple.

Why would you ever vote for a Republican again? The Republicans are the ones who got us into this mess. Why would you trust them to get us out of it?
