Tag: Health Care Exchanges
Which will it be governor?
It took me a while, but I found something that had my interest piqued a couple of years ago when arguing the merits of leaving the DIBC as it is. The facts were not entirely scrubbed from the Detroit Chamber's site, and I wonder how well the travel numbers used to argue for a new bridge will stand up when health care choices are destroyed here as they are in Canada.
"Hubbard pointed out to the committee that the Detroit/Windsor/Port Huron/Sarnia area is home to the busiest border crossing in North America in terms of volume of trade (more than $1 billion in goods crosses daily). Additionally, metro Detroit is home to major passenger vehicle traffic - between 3000 and 4000 Canadian health care workers entering the region every day."Incentive is a reality.
Say NO to Obamacare.
Michigan can be a part of the growing number of states nullifying it.

Don't believe a word you hear from supporters of Obamacare being implemented in any way. you are being lied to. This popped into the inbox today.
Tina Dupont of the Tea Party of West Michigan writes:
"ALERT, ALERT, ALERT!!!!She is correct. The exchange MUST NOT HAPPEN.
Watch the video. Then have your state legislator tell Washington to shove this intrusion into state's rights where the thermometer might go.
Don't sit around. Call now.

The big event of the U.S. Supreme Court's 2011-2012 term -- and perhaps the most important since Brown v Board of Education -- will be the decision on the various cases involving the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. commonly known as Obamacare.
The issues to be argued are known generally by the public, but few understand them in any detail. For example, during a recent forum, the Lieutenant Governor here in the Enchanted Mitten, arguing for a state-established health care exchange, said that even if the Court finds the individual mandate unconstitutional, it will have no effect on health care exchanges, since HCEs are not before the Court. This position is not exactly accurate. If the Court determines that the individual mandate is unconstitutional. it will then expressly decide whether the entire law must be struck down, including those provisions pertaining to health care exchanges.

Governor Snyder has had an opportunity to join with 26 other states in repudiating the destruction of our health care by the liar in chief and a capitulating congress.
But he has done nothing of the sort.
And while our attorney general Bill Schuette is supposedly fighting against Obamacare as unconstitutional, we have a Snyder enabler Jim Marleau pushing for the finishing touches on the insurance exchanges.
The bottom line is that Obamacare requires every citizen to purchase government approved health insurance under penalty of law, beginning in 2014. Key to enforcing the "Individual Mandates," are federally-regulated health insurance exchanges, which will be set up in each state to facilitate the sale of this mandated insurance.
The law gives states the option to set up an exchange or have the federal government do it for them. Some states (and Legislators) mistakenly believe that if they set up an exchange, they will preserve state control over the exchange. However, Washington bureaucrats will be at the controls regardless of whether the exchange is state or federally established.
