Passage of Laws Such as Healthcare Legislation Affect the Value of Presidential Autographs

healthcareSince the 1940s, various U.S. Presidents have pushed for the passage of major pieces of legislation that would affect healthcare access and insurance coverage for Americans, with most failing to get the laws that they favored passed:

-Harry Truman attempted to enact universal healthcare immediately after World World Two, but Congress refused.

– Lyndon Johnson’s administration managed to successfully get Medicaid and Medicare passed, but a desire to achieve across-the-board healthcare reform remained out of reach.

-Richard Nixon tried to make it mandatory for all employers to provide insurance to employees, but this push came to an end with the Watergate Scandal and his subsequent resignation.

-Jimmy Carter was poised to pass major healthcare reform in the late 1970s, but infighting between his administration and the Democrats on the hill led by Ted Kennedy killed this attempt.

-Bill Clinton, with First Lady Hillary Clinton leading the charge, planned to get major healthcare reform passed in the early days of his administration, but was also unable to get Congress on board.

We Now Have Proof Obamacare Was Designed to Fail… and Here’s Why [Video]

Melissa Dykes – The oligarchy runs our society with Problem – Reaction – Solution.

We all knew our government was disgustingly corrupt… but now it’s blatantly in-your-face written proof disgustingly corrupt at a time when most of us didn’t think it could get much worse.

If anything, these leaks have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the two-party system is an illusion and the whole construct is one huge pay-for-play corporate sham. Obamacare was always meant to destroy the private health care system and usher in single-payer, government run socialist medicine. It was designed that way… and it’s “working”.

Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton created Truthstream as an outlet to examine the news, place it in a broader context, uncover the deceptions, pierce through the fabric of illusions, grasp the underlying factors, know the real enemy, unshackle from the system, and begin to imagine the path towards taking back our lives, one step at a time, so that one day we might truly be free…

Health Insurance Corporations Planning Huge Increases

insuranceHealth insurance companies around the country are seeking rate increases of 20 percent to 40 percent or more, saying their new customers under the Affordable Care Act turned out to be sicker than expected. Federal officials say they are determined to see that the requests are scaled back.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans — market leaders in many states — are seeking rate increases that average 23 percent in Illinois, 25 percent in North Carolina, 31 percent in Oklahoma, 36 percent in Tennessee and 54 percent in Minnesota, according to documents posted online by the federal government and state insurance commissioners and interviews with insurance executives.

The Oregon insurance commissioner, Laura N. Cali, has just approved 2016 rate increases for companies that cover more than 220,000 people. Moda Health Plan, which has the largest enrollment in the state, received a 25 percent increase, and the second-largest plan, LifeWise, received a 33 percent increase.

King v. Burwell Decision Changes Nothing For Obamacare Repeal

courtJim DeMint – This morning, the Supreme Court handed down a decision in the case of King v. Burwell which maintains, contrary to the plain language of the law, subsidies are available to those who purchase insurance through federal health insurance exchanges set up for states which opted not to create their own. This doesn’t change the responsibility of Congress to repeal Obamacare.

Justice Scalia, joined by Justices Thomas and Alito, pointed to the farce of the majority’s ruling at the beginning of their dissent:

The Court holds that when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act says “Exchange established by the State” it means “Exchange established by the State or the Federal Government.” That is of course quite absurd, and the Court’s 21 pages of explanation make it no less so.

Nevertheless, the White House is quite pleased the court has stepped in to plug yet another “crack in the dam” on behalf of the administration. President Obama proudly proclaimed, “The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.”

Less enthused are the millions of people across the nation paying more for their health insurance because of the laughably misnamed Affordable Care Act, as well as those who wish they could have kept their old plans, as the president falsely assured them they would.

The six justices in the majority—Roberts, Kennedy, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor and Kagan—relied on the puzzling reasoning that since the overall purpose of the law was to put people into insurance exchanges, a decision which struck down the availability of subsidies for those who purchase insurance through the federal exchanges would be contrary to legislative intent and thus undesirable.
