National Democratic Committee responds to Jindal's healthcare plan
Written by 

jindal-obamaThe Democratic National Committee National Press Secretary, Michael Czin, has released a statement concerning a healthcare plan presented to the nation by Presidential hopeful, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal:   

Below please find a response from me on the health care plan Governor Jindal announced this am:

“After six years of failed leadership from Bobby Jindal, Louisiana has one of the highest rates of uninsured residents in the entire country. Today, more than one in five Louisianans do not have health insurance. And as Governor, Jindal has made things even worse by callously refusing Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion that would benefit 265,000 of Jindal’s own constituents – all because he’s putting his own rigid partisanship and political ambition ahead of what’s good for his state.

“The plan Governor Jindal announced today – much like the Ryan Budget – starts by repealing Obamacare, which could result in millions of Americans being kicked off their current health care plans and bring back the worst parts of the old, failed health care system. Both plans would roll back crucial protections and take us back to broken system where insurance companies were in the driver’s seat, end Medicare as we know it by implementing voucher systems, and gutting Medicaid funding that benefits millions of Americans.

“Jindal’s plan is nothing more than a rehash of failed Republican ideas that have been – and will continue to be – rejected by the voters.”

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.
