Two of the most important issues facing the nation this election season is healthcare and the future of the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare and the federal debt.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump presented his healthcare reform plan which his campaign claims will make America Great again.
Included in the plan are repealing Obamacare, allowing individuals to buy policies across state lines, block grants, healthcare savings accounts.
In a ruling that I do not find surprising the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld Obama Care’s subsidies in states that have not set up their own exchanges.
It's getting curiouser and curiouser these days at the Louisiana Capitol wonderland.
Medicaid expansion, the Obama ogre healthcare solution, is getting another look on Wednesday and advocates on both sides of the issue are at the battle lines.
It’s official. Sort of.
Ted Cruz has made it official. Bobby Jindal will just cruise, for now.
Despite calls by some lately for Governor Bobby Jindal to resign due to the collapse of the Louisiana budget coinciding with the governor’s intense focus upon his own presidential race-yet-to-be-declared, the governor’s main spokesperson, Timmy Teepell, appears to have extended the date for the governor to declare his intentions.

In this series, I will compare Bobby Jindal’s pledges as a candidate in 2007 with his record in the Governor’s office. I began with the centerpiece of Jindal’s 2007 campaign, ethics reform, and today, I will be unpacking his 2007 campaign pledge for health care reform and compare it with his current stance against the Affordable Care Act.
What will happen on the Day that Obamacare dies? Will we have health insurance? If not, will doctors be able or willing to treat patients?
Sounds like absurd questions, don't they?
Predictably, critics who call the closure of the emergency room for Baton Rouge General Medical Center a failure of public policy show the real failure comes in their unwillingness to grasp of the laws of economics, especially as it related to health care.
In the view of some Americans, Obamacare is a government-controlled, top-down radical healthcare policy that will bankrupt the nation, hurt healthcare delivery, build a growing population of dependent-Americans--with only those able to pay health insurance footing the bill.
In the view of other Americans, the Affordable Care Act is a law extending medical care to a larger population of Americans, reducing costs and helping to make the country healthier.
Who can blame Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for falling asleep during President Obama’s 70 minute snoozer of a State of the Union speech?
Surely millions of Americans either fell asleep or turned off the President as his gave his usual speech, filled with a laundry list of liberal initiatives. In his speech, Obama did not acknowledge there was a Republican Senate and failed to recognize the stunning defeat his party suffered last November.
