“This afternoon, the Minnesota Senate made the final vote to pass the Minnesota Health Insurance Exchange, or MN HIX, bill, which passed by a vote of 39 to 28. Not a single Republican Senator voted for the bill and one Democrat voted in opposition of it during the House vote last week.

The Battle for America

The Battle for America

The battle over Obamacare is bigger than health care. It's about whether we'll be a free nation of free people or whether government will rule over our lives and determine our value. Three years after Obama's health reform bill became the so-called "law of the land," it's nowhere close to being accepted as such. The average of three polls taken between June and November 2012 shows 50.3% of Americans support repeal and only 44.3% oppose repeal. This is good news!

The Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.com) launched a new billboard campaign (www.NOTaMarketplace.com) that helps shed light on the appointed, seven-member board of directors that will have authority, under proposed Minnesota legislation, to decide what insurance plans are available on the Minnesota exchange. As a result, Minnesotans will be at the board’s mercy when it comes to having a variety of insurance options available to choose from.

Obama's Rationing Plan Revealed in Lawsuit

Obama's Rationing Plan Revealed in Lawsuit

A lawsuit has unexpectedly revealed Obama's rationing plans. The Administration says states can cut Medicaid payments to doctors and other providers to hold down costs. This is a breathtaking statement. President Obama's signature law, Obamacare, adds 16 million people to Medicaid. It offers states the "opportunity" to expand Medicaid at no cost for the first two years, and then offers to pay 90% of the cost in perpetuity of all individuals eligible under the expansion. The law also increases payment to primary care doctors for two years to encourage them to accept more Medicaid patients.
