What To Expect In 2014: Obamacare, Immigration Reform, Budget Battles & More

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.

A More Dangerous World

The United States struck a surprising nuclear deal with Iran last week. The agreement commits Iran to halt its nuclear activites for six months in exchange for limited and gradual sanctions relief. U.S. President Barack Obama hailed the deal as putting substantial limitations on the Iranian nuclear program which the U.S. and its allies have feared could lead to nuclear weapons capabilities. He stated, "For the first time in a decade we have halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program."

Senator Rubio: “It’s in God’s Hands” & Teddy Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena”

Theodore Roosevelt, who grew up a sickly boy, became a Medal of Honor winner after charging up San Juan Hill during the Spanish American War leading his troops to victory. In Paris, France on April 23, 1910, former President Theodore Roosevelt gave one of his most famous speeches delivered at the University of Paris (the Sorbonne,) which included this key paragraph:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. 

Shame on modern-day Judases: GOP Governors Christie, Scott, Kasich, Snyder, Brewer, etc.

During Easter Sunday, many millions of viewers who watched the History Channel’s record-breaking hit television series, “The Bible”  saw the conclusion to the series: the story of Jesus and his betrayal by one of his 12 disciples:  Judas. 

We have recently seen modern day “Judases” in the Republican Party who have forsaken their principles for 30 pieces of silver, or in this case for 3 years of 100% payments from ObamaCare’s socialized medicine scheme in return for the governors’ agreement to greatly expand an already-broken Medicaid system in their states; a system which is one of the most poorly-run health care systems in the entire world.

Employers Monitoring Employees’ Weight & Habits – Just One of the Ways Obamacare Intrudes Into Your Privacy

Beginning in 2014, patients’ overall health, eating habits and body mass index (BMI) will be part of an electronic record, shared with various government bureaucracies, in addition to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Doctors will be required to record your BMI, which measures whether or not you are overweight. This will be done every you receive any type of medical treatment.  This information will be sent to HHS who will keep track your BMI and your updated information will be forwarded to various other agencies.

There’s also a good chance your employer will try to bait you into enrolling in a wellness program in which employees will need to reveal their height, weight, body fat percentage and other personal data.  A fine will be imposed on those who refuse to do so.  The employer will not have access to the employees’ personal health information—it will be sent to a third party administrator.  According to Health Affairs:

GOP Should Let Obama Veto ObamaCare Defunding Multiple Times

As usual, the RINO (Republicans In Name Only) wing of their national party  --  and their comrades in the establishment media, such as Bill O’Reilly on Fox News  --  have given up on defunding ObamaCare.  Their argument is that the president won reelection and it is time to acknowledge that fact. 

What is it about what the Founding Fathers  --  and about what the Constitution  --  gave this great country that the establishment does not understand?  The People’s House, i.e. the United States House of Representatives, is supposed to be the most powerful part of government.
