TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: GOP Slams Obama's SOTU Speech as Divisive, Confrontational (Quote by Jenny Beth) “Republicans Tuesday charged President Barack Obama with putting forth a highly divisive State of the Union speech that offered no new proposals and included a plan to raise $320 billion in new taxes that had no chance of passing Congress. "He's just being confrontational," Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, told Newsmax, focusing on Obama's tax plan. "He knows that's not going to pass either chamber of Congress.

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 ...

HEALTHCARE: As Medicaid Rolls Swell, Cuts in Payments to Doctors Threaten Access to Care “Just as millions of people are gaining insurance through Medicaid, the program is poised to make deep cuts in payments to many doctors, prompting some physicians and consumer advocates to warn that the reductions could make it more difficult for Medicaid patients to obtain care. The Affordable Care Act provided a big increase in Medicaid payments for primary care in 2013 and 2014. But the increase expires on Thursday — just weeks after the Obama administration told the Supreme Court that doctors and other providers had no legal right to challenge the ...

HEALTHCARE: 'Obamacare Works,' Obama Tells Voters “Mired in low approval numbers, President Obama has shied away from campaigning for Democratic candidates before the midterms, but when he spoke at a rally this evening in Michigan, the president made a forceful case for his signature health law. "I don't know if you've noticed, but Obamacare works," the president said. Criticized by Republicans as an overreaching law that was rolled out ineptly, the Affordable Care Act eventually supplied health coverage to 8 million Americans who signed up for 2014 plans on Obamacare-created exchanges. The law faces a critical test this month, as the 2015 ...

HEALTHCARE: Report: Deficit will grow $131 billion under Obamacare “Obamacare will add more than $100 billion to the nation's deficit, according to a report issued by the Republican staff of the Senate Budget Committee. Democrats dispute the findings of the report, however, with one top aide calling it “garbage.” The Senate Budget Committee GOP staff crunched updated data on the Affordable Care Act, provided by the Congressional Budget Office, which they said refutes the agency's 2012 conclusion that the health care law would cut the deficit by $109 billion by 2022. Instead, GOP budget staffers say the law will increase the deficit by $131 ...

HEALTHCARE: Thanks to Obamacare, Health Costs Soared This Year http://dailysignal.com/2014/10/13/thanks-to-obamacare-health-costs-soared-this-year/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social   An Obamacare October surprise? “Obamacare premiums aren’t rising everywhere. They just have a way of finding the states with the biggest Senate races. And that could be very bad timing for Democrats in two of the party’s key contests. Double-digit rate hikes for individual health insurance plans have become an issue in the Louisiana and Iowa Senate races over the past week, where the Republican candidates are hammering their Democratic ...

HEALTHCARE:   New HHS Chief Presses Reset on Health Law, Plugs Savings and Quality “A bit more than three months into her tenure as secretary of health and human services, Sylvia Mathews Burwell is moving to polish the image and improve implementation of the Affordable Care Act, an effort likely to determine whether she is seen as a success in the post.

Below are some of the news stories that we are reading today. HEALTHCARE:   Obamacare: Fewer Doctors, More Demand The trends are not pretty if you’re a physician — or a person who needs medical care. “Obamacare, as its advocates increasingly point out, has succeeded in expanding the number of Americans with insurance. Even though this achievement came at enormous cost, still leaves millions of Americans uninsured, and dumped millions more into Medicaid, this is still one of the few “successes” that the health-care law can claim. However, health insurance and access to health care are not the same thing. And evidence is ...
