Obamacare, Medicaid & Medicare

In 2014, an expansion of Medicaid, with an increased cost burden for taxpayers, is expected. This is according to the Kaiser Family Foundation which has also projected Obamacare adding another 20 millionnew Medicaid dependents. It is estimated this expansion will add an average of 13% in costs to state budgets in 2014 alone.

The health insurance premium “sticker shock” will continue in 2014 as the reality of higher premiums really hits home. Most Americans, but especially the young and healthy, will have to come to grips with health insurance premium increases anywhere between 50% and 150%. And, to make matters worse, employers will continue to cut full-time workers back to part-time by reducing employees’ hours per week from 40 to 29 or less. This is being done to minimize the number of employees qualifying for the expensive Obamacare-compliant coverage.

Because businesses must pay more to purchase Obamacare-compliant plans, remaining employer-based health insurance policies will have higher out-of-pocket costs for employees, including higher co-pays and deductibles.

Project Red Leaf – Growing Conservative Voters on US College Campuses

Project Red Leaf’s objective is to grow a conservative voter base on college campuses across the United States. It is based on the belief that increasing the number of registered conservative voters on college campuses will positively impact local, state, and national elections, giving conservatives a better chance of winning or retaining seats.

Project Red Leaf (PRL) is a national network of certified Third Party Voter Registration Organization’s (3PVRO’s). For example, Project Red Leaf – University of Tampa is a 3PVRO registered in the State of Florida (ID#13-1). So, PRL has been legally approved and is acknowledged by the state’s Supervisor of Elections. This is what provides the permission needed to register people to vote in local, state, and federal elections.

PRL’s motto is: “One student at a time will make all the difference.” The organization continues its work with college conservative groups and College Republican organizations, which allows for the leveraging of national resources. The project follows a two-step process:
