Today’s Passionate Patriot: Judy Pepenella

All Tea Party Patriot activists sacrifice for the sake of the country. Phone banks, protests, traveling, and many other activities are prioritized over sitting on the couch enjoying a relaxing movie. Today’s Passionate Patriot, New York State Coordinator Judy Pepenella, epitomizes that sacrifice. Let me say up front that Judy didn’t want this post to be about her. According to Judy, the movement is about the country; she’s just a participant. But between her personal story and a spectacularly successful event this past weekend at The Long Island Fall Festival, Tea Party Patriot Regional Support Team member Keli Carender insisted that Judy ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Cokie and Steven V. Roberts: Troubled assets no trouble “Weeks after voters dissed the Democrats, an important economic benchmark was passed with little public notice: The U.S. government sold off its stake in Ally Financial, the auto financing company once known as GMAC. It even made money on the deal — about $2.4 billion. That sale ended the six-year effort to rescue the American auto industry from financial disaster. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew was correct in saying, "This program worked.” In 2014, American carmakers sold 16.5 million vehicles, their best year in almost a decade. That boom fits into a broader ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party Patriots Slam IRS: Targeting 'Still Going On' “The Tea Party Patriots on Tuesday slammed the IRS after a House oversight panel released its report, saying that the agency moved to scrutinize conservative groups by Democrats calling for tighter regulation of nonprofits' political activities. "There is no question that the IRS as an agency, and its leaders individually, directed and implemented a scheme to silence and demoralize tea party groups," said Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Atlanta-based group. "We knew it was going on before Congress and the Treasury inspector general confirmed it. "The truth is that ...

HEALTHCARE: Surprise: Insurers Extend Another Obamacare Deadline, Costs to Spike in 2016 The law. It's working, you guys. It's working so well that one entire year into its full implementation, insurers feel compelled to extend yet another alleged deadline because the so-called 'back end' of the program's website is still a hot mess.  That big "re-branding" campaign can't come soon enough, in order to allow supporters to keep on highlighting Obamacare's unparalleled success: “Trying to head off a new round of consumer headaches with President Barack Obama's health care law, the insurance industry said Tuesday it will give customers more time ...

HEALTHCARE: Wal-Mart Cuts Health Benefits for Some Part-Timers “Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to eliminate health insurance coverage for some of its part-time U.S. employees in a move aimed at controlling rising health care costs of the nation's largest private employer. Wal-Mart told The Associated Press that starting Jan. 1, it will no longer offer health insurance to employees who work less than an average of 30 hours a week. The move affects 30,000 employees, or about 5 percent of Wal-Mart's total part-time workforce, but comes after the company already had scaled back the number of part-time workers who were eligible for health insurance ...

From Fortune 500 to Family-owned, Obamacare Damages Economy

Security and peace of mind – it’s what Obamacare promised. But the reality is many businesses, including General Electric, are facing uncertainty that’s affecting their bottom line. During a recent briefing of their first-quarter earnings, GE company officials shared how their slump in medical equipment sales, induced by Obamacare, could persist longer than expected. “Hospitals and clinics appear to be delaying purchases and responses to the ACA [Affordable Care Act],” stated GE senior vice president and CFO Jeffrey S. Bornstein in the company’s first-quarter earnings call. General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt, an outside economic ...

When Coverage Does Not Equal Care

Getting covered doesn’t mean getting care. Citizens in the UK understand the difference. The lack of accessibility is so rampant, the National Health Service (NHS) Constitution needs to clarify a patient’s right to receive treatment within 18 weeks of a GP referral. NHS deems it acceptable for people to wait over 4 months for medical care. For Judy in California, today’s Affordable Care Act is becoming tomorrow’s failed NHS. “I have atrial fibrillation. Since Obamacare has become law, each time I need to schedule an appointment with my cardiologist, the scheduler either tells me the cardiologist's schedule is not available yet, or ...

Obamacare Destroys Decades of Doctor-Patient Relationships

There are very few issues more personal than healthcare, which is why it can take people months, even years to find the right doctor. When they do, they are determined to keep them. Judy, a 72-year-old New York resident, had been happy for more than 20 years. Judy was so determined to stay with this particular practitioner; she even followed her to other practices. Now, because of Obamacare, that relationship has been erased. “I have gone to an OB/GYN in my area for years. I always went to their Physician Assistant and felt very comfortable with her as I have seen her for at least twenty years. I am 72-years-old, so I only go every two years ...
