Poll: Affordable Care Act, Healthcare law, the more I know
Written by 

HealthCareDebatePerhaps nothing has been as politically controversial and divisive during the Obama administration than his signature legislation and law, the Affordable Care Act.

 

Proponents of the healthcare law believe rates will come down, more Americans will be insured, consumers will have more choices, young adults have extended coverage on their parents insurance policy and pre-existing conditions will no longer destroy lives and families.

Opponents of the law feel the opposite regarding rates and overall medical costs.  They also do not like the federal government having any access to privacy information, believe the government should not control such a large portion of the economy.  They also feel the law is too confusing, too demanding and unworkable.

Of course, there are a variety of reasons including those cited above on both sides of the healthcare debate equation.

However, now that October 1 is fast approaching, the healthcare law is about to unveil its insurance exchanges,  Americans will soon be able to review and obtain coverage online and the major parts of the law begin to kick in January 1, 2014, there is still plenty of debate over this political, business and economic question.

So, how do you feel about the law now, a couple of years since it became the political rage?  Take the Bayoubuzz poll and share with others.

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.
