Louisiana Democrats say 500,000 will lose healthcare if Obamacare repealed

Obamacare repeal, without replacement, might soon be a reality.

The GOP and President-elect Donald Trump appear to be focused on repealing the health care law with the promise of replacing, but, the uncertainty of what and when would be taking over for the now, almost-terminal revolutionary legislation, is obvious.

The Democrats, fresh off of a brutal and embarrassing defeat for them nationally are taking up the slogan, "Make America Sick Again", warning what they think will occur if the law is repealed.

The Louisiana Democrats, today, sent out a fundraising appeal with this message:

Not even a week after being sworn in the GOP Congress is quickly at work to repeal the Affordable Care Act – and now it is clear they have nothing to replace it with – so it’s just going away.

In Louisiana, that means more than 500,000 people will likely lose their coverage and many prevented from getting new coverage.

Gone will be…

Keeping your kids on your policy until they are 26
Pre-Existing Conditions will prevent you from getting coverage
Caps on increases to premiums
Lifetime limits will return allowing insurance companies to kick you off when you get sick

Now is the time for action. Congress must hear from us! Tell them they need to keep what is working and fix what is broken - we simply can not afford to go back! We can't rip away coverage from over a half million of our friends, family and neighbors.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
