savings (3)



I spent a considerable amount of time on the phone today with Sen. Huffines Education Policy director, Lauren who is at the Austin office (very nice lady)


THERE WILL BE TESTING for all those that apply and get the state funding through Education Savings Accounts (ESA) in this proposed "School Choice" legislation.

Now with that said a student has to be in the public school system for an un-determined amount of time to qualify for the funding. (There was original discussion that this would be 100 days and it is not set in stone as of yet).

Now I want you to wrap your head around this home schoolers. Texas has been the best State in the US to homeschool due to our freedom from state mandates and testing. If this "School Choice" bill passes those who choose to exit the public school system to homeschool and buy into the money carrot of (ESA's) are unfortunately NOT aware of the freedom we have been blessed with.

Unfortunately, I feel many will be duped into taking the $$ keeping their child in the system. With this comes control, state mandates, testing and data collection on TEXAS' future homeschool community.

Please do not buy into the "MANTRA" that this $$ is going to parents to "EMPOWER" them to be involved in their child's education.A parent that wants to be involved in their child's education WILL BE!!

With that said I am most upset that the Texas Home School Coalition is throwing future Texas Homeschoolers under the bus.

ObamaCare's First Casualty

News that the Department of Health and Human Services was promulgating a rule that would destroy about 35% of the Health Savings Account market comes as no surprise to Tea Party activists who warned everyone who would listen that ObamaCare would kill the private insurance market.

The rule known as the "Medical Loss Ratio" rule would deny private and small business issued policies from being sold on the ObamaCare health care exchanges.  There are currently five million people who have small business and individual issued policies. Those policies will be ripped from their hands should the rule go into effect.

HHS does not seem to care that the rule will be directly violate President Obama's promise that "[I]f you like your health plan, you'll keep your health plan."   They also don't seem to care that their edict will decimate the Health Savings Account market.

Since their creation in 2003, HSAs have become the fastest growing health care product in history.  14 million Americans enjoy their benefits.  They are, in fact, the real alternative to government-run health care.  They are a market-based product that encourages people to save money by shopping for health care services.  No wonder they are the first victims of ObamaCare.

A Vision for Health Care in America

Here is a vision for health care in America that all people can agree upon:
Imagine a doctor and patient sitting in a doctor's office.  The patient has all the money they need to pay for their medical needs.  There are no insurance companies in the room.  There are no government bureaucrats in the room.  Just the doctor, the patient and the money.

How Do You Get There?  
With the tax deduction “Cash in the Hand”: 
For Individuals:
  • If you could deposit your income tax payment in a Health Savings Account, would you do it?
  • If you could deposit your property tax payment in a Health Savings Account, would you do it?
Waiters and Waitresses:
  • Would you like all the sales taxes collected each day by your employer to be divided equally between all the workers in the restaurant and deposited into a Health Savings Account for you?
Workers in a big box store:
  • Would you like your employers property tax bill divided equally between all the workers and deposited in your Health Savings Account for you?
  • Would you like your employers corporate income tax bill divided equally between all the workers and deposited in your Health Savings Account?
What can you do with the money in an Health Savings Account?
Buy Health Insurance
Pay for any health related expense
Do you want to live under the ObamaCare health care laws or would you rather have a Health Savings Account made possible by the tax deduction “Cash in the Hand”?
