Jindal Cancels Medicaid Contract with Planned Parenthood

Even though the Senate still wants to keep federal money flowing into Planned Parenthood’s coffers, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal wants to do what he can to cut off the flow of public money to the “women’s health” organization. The Blaze reported: “In recent weeks, it has been shocking to see reports of the alleged activities taking place at Planned Parenthood facilities across the country. Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental Read more […]

As Medicaid Rolls Expand, Payments to Providers Shrink

It’s a natural consequence that as the government forces states to expand their respective Medicaid programs, payments to healthcare providers fall. I used to work at a hospital corporate office in the billing and collecting department. There were a few states that had Medicaid programs that paid enough for it to be worth it to us to accept those patients on a regular basis. I know that sounds completely uncaring and greedy, but in order for businesses to remain in operation, they have to be Read more […]

Holder Discussed Fast & Furious with Wife before Admitting to Knowing about It

We already know that US Attorney General Eric Holder has violated nearly as many federal laws as Barack Obama. He has repeatedly refused to prosecute liberals and enforce federal laws while spending his time going after conservatives and patriots. In 2008, members of the New Black Panthers were caught on video intimidating voters to get them to vote for Obama. After being appointed as Attorney General, Holder ordered the federal charges to be dropped and the investigation stopped. It just happened Read more […]

Obamacare Analysis Reveals Uninsured Largely Still Uninsured

Weren’t we all told that the main purpose behind Obamacare was to insure the millions of Americans that didn’t have healthcare coverage? If you believed that lie, then I have a bridge in San Francisco to sell you. Edmund Haislmaier and Drew Gonshorowski with The Heritage Foundation analyzed the latest numbers for Obamacare from the second quarter of 2014. The second quarter encompasses the last two open enrollment months along with the delays from the first quarter that were the result of Read more […]

Shock Report! Government Wastes Huge Amount of Taxpayer Dollars

The federal government wastes most taxpayer dollars, not only by making poor or fradulent spending decisions, but also by funding inefficient entitlement programs and unnecessarily redistributing wealth, argues Heritage Foundation budget economist Romina Boccia. “Any Social Security check going to a millionaire, I call that government waste,” Boccia told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “If we decide that the government has a role to protect the elderly and disabled from destitution, if Read more […]

Medicare Costs Are Going Down: Thanks, Obamacare?

While national spending on health care is sky-rocketing, we can be thankful to Obamacare for one thing: the direct costs of Medicare are not projected to be quite as high as the Congressional Budget Office once thought. Why is that? And some [of the decrease in Medicare spending is] because of cuts in health care spending passed by Congress. The Affordable Care Act, in particular, made significant reductions to Medicare’s spending on hospitals and private Medicare plans, to help subsidize insurance Read more […]

Obama: States Refusing More Healthcare Socialism Out of “Political Spite”

Obama expressed frustration at GOP governors for not expanding their respective Medicaid programs. He said that since expanding Medicaid would be perfectly free, the only reason they’d refuse is because of political spite (as if Obama has never acted out of political spite):  “This does frustrate me — states that have chosen not to expand Medicaid for no other reason than political spite. You got 5 million people who could be having health insurance right now at no cost to these states — zero Read more […]

As Few as 11% of Obamacare Enrollees Previously Uninsured

When Obama, Reid and Pelosi were pushing Obamacare through Congress, they kept telling us that this needed to be passed so that all of the 30+ million uninsured Americans will have insurance.  Remember that? The White House is claiming that 6 million Americans have already enrolled in Obamacare, but we already know that those figures are bogus and inaccurate.  But even if we accept Obama’s 6 million enrollees figure, new surveys are indicating that it has still failed its intent of insuring Read more […]

Tax Dollars To Pay For Sex Change Surgery?

Since 1981, it has been illegal for anyone to have their sex change surgery covered through Medicaid or Medicare.  Under the liberal leadership of the White House, this may be about to change.  The Department of Health and Human Services has asked for this rule to be changed so that your tax dollars can start paying for sex change operations through Medicaid and Medicare. Matt Barber, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Law and Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action tried to warn America back in Read more […]
