Older Paul, Younger Paul Take Different Approach to Ukraine

The apple falls sorta kinda far from the tree...

In a piece for Politico, Tal Kopan highlights the different approaches to the Eurasian debacle being taken by libertarian icons Ron Paul and son Rand. Whereas the elder Paul is asking "So what?" vis-a-vis America, Ukraine, and Russia, the younger Paul has engaged in tough talk™ in recent days aimed squarely at Putin. Writes Ron Paul:

Why does the U.S. care which flag will be hoisted on a small piece of land thousands of miles away? Critics point to the Russian 'occupation' of Crimea as evidence that no fair vote could have taken place. Where were these people when an election held in an Iraq occupied by U.S. troops was called a 'triumph of democracy'?

U.S. officials who supported the unconstitutional overthrow of Ukraine's government should refocus their energies on learning our own Constitution.
Meanwhile, son Rand has been taking a more belligerent stance toward Putin and Co., even advocating for the use of sanctions in a March 9th TIME piece:
It is important that Russia become economically isolated until all its forces are removed from Crimea and Putin pledges to act in accordance with the international standards of behavior that respect the rights of free people everywhere.

But as Forbes' David Adesnik points out, Rand Paul's take on the Crimean situation has been all over the, er, map, in a "confusing series of twists and turns" Asneck believes to be the result of a shallow knowledge of foreign policy coupled with a "desperate" search for some framework or ideology with which to buttress it.

Latinos and Obamacare: Not Buying It
March 19, 2014

Here’s a poll the White House doesn’t want you to see: In the state of Colorado, 57 percent of Hispanics disapprove of Obamacare. This development is significant for a number of reasons.

First, Hispanics constitute a disproportionate amount of America’s uninsured population, and, thus the intended audience of this grand experiment in government-run health care.

Second, Hispanics are also a young demographic, making up about 65 percent of U.S. millennials, according to Heartland Draws Hispanics. Again, this number is important because, in order to contain costs and premium rates, Obamacare needs young people to sign up in droves.

Finally, the poll may also help explain why Obamcare enrollment numbers have failed to meet enrollment projections. In states with a sizable Hispanic population like California, fewer than 20 percent of applicants identified themselves as Hispanic, according to the latest exchange numbers as reported by CNN.com

Put it all together and these numbers spell trouble for the White House.

Health law concerns for cancer centers

WASHINGTON (AP)-- Cancer patients relieved that they can get insurance coverage because of the new health care law may be disappointed to learn that some the nation's best cancer hospitals are off-limits.

An Associated Press survey found examples coast to coast. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is excluded by five out of eight insurers in Washington state's insurance exchange. MD Anderson Cancer Center says it's in less than half of the plans in the Houston area. Memorial Sloan-Kettering is included by two of nine insurers in New York City and has out-of-network agreements with two more.

Doctors and administrators say they're concerned. So are some state insurance regulators.

In all, only four of 19 nationally recognized comprehensive cancer centers that responded to AP's survey said patients have access through all the insurance companies in their state exchange.

“Against my better judgment, I’ve been trying to sign up for the last 3 weeks [on Healthcare.gov ] and I’ve reentered my info 20 times and it keeps telling me an error has occurred,” Jacie Walker wrote on the comments thread of a Lebron James video urging enrollment.“I can’t afford to call the help desk over and over and i definitely cant afford $200+ bucks a month when i usually spend less than $200 a year when i pay everything on my own. Nothing about this is free or affordable for young adults.”

Her comment received 74 “likes” and counting.
...
Then there is Krystal Dickinson who says,“This whole affordable health care is insane. None of the plans are affordable for people like me. I’m a single mom with 2 kids and I work part time at almost minimum wage. My cheapest plan would cost over half my paycheck a month. This is ridiculous.”

Under a promotional post claiming that treatment for a sprained ankle absent health insurance costs, on average, over $2,000, Donna Sandello writes that her premiums will double under the law, adding,“Oh, and thank you President Obama, for making sure that I have maternity benefits and pediatric coverage since I’m beyond child bearing years and my children have children of their own.”

Is this where you pretend that hospitals previously accepted all insurer's plans? Kinda like the imaginary death panels? Or the dead grandmothers? You guys love to pretend. Like when you pretend that our healthcare system wasn't a failure in both quality and cost? And like when you pretend that Republicans have an "alternative" plan? And when you pretended that Sarah Palin was smart?

Someday you guys are going to have to get back to reality if you want to stop being the laughingstock of the planet.

Obama to Hispanics: We won’t deport relatives because you enroll in ObamaCare
March 18, 2014

President Obama on Tuesday sought to assure legal immigrants that they can sign up for ObamaCare without worrying that “the immigration people” will come for family members who are in the country illegally.

In an interview with Univision Deportes, a Spanish-language sports radio show, Obama said immigration officials won’t have access to the personal information that consumers provide when signing up for healthcare on the new exchanges.

“Well, the main thing for people to know is that any information you get, you know, asked with respect to buying insurance, does not have anything to do with … the rules governing immigration,” Obama said.“And you know, you can qualify if you’re a legal resident, if you are … legally present in the United States.

“You know, if you have a family where some people are citizens or legally here, and others are not documented, the immigration people will never get that information.”

Hispanic Support Crashes

Narberth, PA

Latinos’ support for Obamacare drops steeply
03/20/2014

Another day, another unwelcome poll for the White House.

Pew reports that Hispanic support for Obamacare has lurched downwards from 60-plus percent in September 2013 to 47 percent.

That matters a lot, because it possibly means there’s less chance that the GOP’s campaign against Obamacare will prompt the large Hispanic turnout that President Barack Obama needs in November to keep Sen. Harry Reid in charge of the Senate.

So far, Democrats have expected Latinos’ support for Obamacare will help them vote Democratic in November.

But the poll showing tepid support for Obamacare might force Obama to spend more time and money pushing Obamacare up the priority list.

Overall, Obama’s support among Hispanics fell from 75 percent in December 2012, to 52 percent in November, according to Gallup.
