LA Budget Project: Obamacare Won't Hurt Worker Benefits
Recently, two policy groups essentially rebutted one of the largest talking points coming from opponents of Obamacare: employer-based insurance will decrease for Americans as the new Affordable Care Act reforms take hold. Not only is this borderline fear mongering by ACA opponents to turn the tides against national health care, turns out that the decline was taking place long before Obamacare and that public health care has been helping bridge the gap.
Subpar Health Plans Ok'd by La. Insurance Commish
The 93,000 people in Louisiana who thought their health insurance would be canceled under Obamacare may get to keep their plan like the president promised after all. Late Wednesday, Commissioner of Insurance Jim Donelon announced that he would go along with a White House-proposed fix that would allow people to keep their plans for another year, even if they don't meet Affordable Care Act requirements.
Mary Landrieu Keeps Promise Act Despite Obamacare Fix
On the heels of yesterday's dismal enrollment numbers, President Barack Obama sought to show he was offering some medicine to all that ails the rollout of his massive health care overhaul. Turns out, the treatment plan he today looked a lot like a proposal that Louisiana's Sen. Mary Landrieu has been pushing.
Obamacare Marketplace Nets Less Than 400 Signups in Louisiana
The White House released the first round of data for the federally-run marketplace on Wednesday, and the numbers were looking sickly. Amid the website snafus and confusion about whether people who already have insurance will be able to keep it, 387 people signed up for a plan with the federally-run insurance marketplace via healthcare.gov in the website's first month of operation, according to federal data.
Parsing the Promise
Mary Landrieu's Obamacare Repair
In the struggle to make sure all Americans are properly insured and can receive medical treatment going into the future, a battle has begun over whether certain insurance policies should count as "proper coverage," as the rollout of Affordable Care Act moves forward. Just like when Obamacare was initially passed, Sen. Mary Landrieu is once again near the center of the fray.
Mary Landrieu to Propose Health Care Grandfathering
Sen. Mary Landrieu announced plans for legislation this week that runs contrary to the White House on some aspects of the Affordable Care Act. Landrieu, a Democrat, often sides with President Barack Obama on matters concerning the health care overhaul coming to effect the next year. However, the senator plans to offer up legislation that would allow people to keep their current plans.
Mary Landrieu, Dems Pushing POTUS on Obamacare Extension
Democrats have been mostly united in their desire for health care reform, but never underestimate the power of tech issues to fray nerves. With website issues at healthcare.gov hindering signups for health insurance under Obamacare, a group of Senate Dems are calling for an extension from the current enrollment deadline of March 31, 2014. Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu is among a group that sent a letter to health and human services secretary Kathleen Sibelius pushing for more time.
Dems Raise Prostitution Scandal, Vitter Calls with Ethics Complaint
The health care debate in this country gets mired often, and the latest round of political blows once again shows that some of the most slanderous political battles have nothing to do with the issue at hand. Instead, they become about the personal attacks that manifest when a consensus cannot be reached. Once again, we find Louisiana's own U.S. Sen. David Vitter involved.
Vitter Seeks Obamacare for POTUS, Congress
David Vitter wants to give Obamacare to Obama. The junior Louisiana senator and friends say they're working on new legislation that would close an exemption in the Affordable Care Act that allows member of Congress and other pols to receive subsidies for health care coverage. The Senators say it is in the name of equality and fairness, and not trying to cripple the health care legislation with even more costs, or stick it to their elected brethren.
Jindal Goes on MTP, Pens Politico Op-Ed on Race (VIDEO)
Hours after Governor Bobby Jindal’s “End of Race” opinion piece was published at Politico.com, The Gov. aired his opinions on national TV through Meet The Press. Fighting fire with fire, Jindal hammered down his points that racism is over, education crises can be solved by school choice, and Obamacare can be defunded without a government shutdown.
