Report: Left Helping High Court Gut Obamacare

Liberals who aren't taking the current court challenge to Obamacare seriously risk enabling the healthcare law's demise, writes Sam Baker in National Journal.

"For the second time, there's a very real chance that the (Supreme) Court could tear the Affordable Care Act apart. And, also for the second time, some liberals are making the mistake of treating that existential threat like it's a joke," Baker writes.

He quotes Simon Lazarus of the liberal Constitutional Accountability Center, who says supporters of the Affordable Care Act lost the PR battle in 2012 over the individual mandate because they treated it as an open-and-shut case and underestimated how much damage it could do.

The latest case takes aim at the ACA's subsidies for people below certain incomes. Opponents say the law provides for subsidies only for people who buy insurance through state-run exchanges. 

Most states' successfully challenged the mandate that they set up their own exchanges. So residents in those states have had to use the federal exchange, run through 

Obamacare opponents noticed that the wording in the laws specified state-run exchanges, therefore nullifying any subsidies paid through the federal exchange. If the court rules in their favor, the ACA would effectively be dead.

Let's hope the Courts can get it right this time.         Ted Cruz was trying to alert everyone of these Subsidies, which in a word, they are taking your money, and redistributing it to pay for Insurance for Others.             They are sending people money to pay for their Insurance, which comes out to FREE Healthcare for millions, paid for by your Tax Money.       As with Welfare, people jump at Free Stuff.        I never agreed to provide Drug Rehab on my nickel.  I do not do Drugs.      I never agreed to Funding Birth Control, and Abortions.       I never agreed to pay for people, who eat themselves into bad health to get counseling.       Go on a diet!!!       Stop eating grease leaden crap out of window, and go cook something healthy.

Let's hope that we'll wake up from this 6-year nightmare.


IN OUR GOVERNMENT PERIOD! I will also add that

NO MUSLIMS should be in our government either!!!!!!!!

Look what we are going through now! Too many IDIOTS

in America that put homo obama in our WH!

These people (?) can't run a lemonade stand!

I agree. Dr. Carson appears (to me) to be another talker who knows the right things to say. His one claim-to-fame seems to be the breakfast speech in front of obama. Everyone knee jerks and is ready to elect for President anyone who makes a few good statements. We have to be more careful this time and be sure of what we elect. Experience, Patriotism to America, Morals, Proven record of Conservatism.... a few qualities to start with.

I just hope that Judge Roberts pays for what he single handed did to our country.  He put more people on the streets without jobs, reduced the work week where a person has to work two or more jobs just to eat and worst of all put far more people out of health care or made it so expensive they just drop insurance.  I know that should I ever meet that bastard anywhere I'll do everything to expose him to the public. 

Dear Father, we're speaking to you now through Your Son, Christ Jesus and we pray that You grant the SCOTUS justices the wisdom of Solomon to do the right thing, in Jesus' name we pray, Amen!



Just hope the blackmailing of Roberts was a one time opportunity

This obamacare needs to be put in

a shredder along with all the other

things obama wants!

Can't wait to see obamacare buried.

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
