Obtain coverage leaves
state senate - republican bill that will nullify Obamacare
we tried that in the 1800’s
we are looking for solutions not roadblocks
suffer in pain without care - treatment in ER are inefficient and expensive
Refers to several approaches to less expensive ways to treat general conditions, not emergency related
Expanded medicaid, employment, inclusive approach
ACA will benefit taxpayers
costs can be controlled
Health care in S Carolina is 20% of economy - vital to economic sector
ACA - good for all concerned - it’s the right thing to do.
I hope some will be interested in this thread. I personally have no stomach for it and will not be listening or posting.
Testimony - first obligation of government
security risks - privacy
eligibility - data hub - which had not been tested
Sensitive information - hub should be guarded, should have higher requirements.
states victims - dept of revenue hacks
Letter from AG navigator grants to train, screen
received in grants for S Carolina
Girl Scouts require background checks, not navigators
20 hours of online training
Consumer alerts and scams - in the headlines regrading ACA
Fundamental responsibility of citizens - properly safeguard information, congress must suspend ACA
are you watching C-SPAN2? Katrina Jackson speaking?
Louisiana - D - State rep
Governor - cuts for hospice care
Can’t support defunding of Obamacare

vote of referendum in order to enact ACA
top 5 states to receive these dollars
ACA will save money for the gov
Implementation offers injection of dollars in state economy and create jobs
college students worry about health care ACA provides that by covering them under parents insurance
Our conscience tells us to support ACA - mentions Bible verse and time to do what is right

Thanks; I asked because C-SPAN2 has a 9/18/13 tag in the upper-right .corner.
Is hearing from last week?
Cites issues regarding implementation
Gov website recently changed definitions
HHS - education and outreach - assigned to navigators
groups little training, oversight
concerns about call centers - employees with little experience
federal call centers not equipped with information
technical issues - application and exchange and data hub
states must have own application
no-cost solution for income eligibility, but learned in June it would be state responsibility
Serious questions about ACA being delayed, suggest entire law be repealed and replaced
This is live - look at the schedule
The date on that page has a video of another hearing from Sept 18
Slavery was *the law*. The will of the People was trampled on with this Socialized healthcare *law*. We the People want it completely Defunded and Removed!
Florida state senator
Florida is punishing by putting up roadblocks
message HC is a privilege not a right,
we are here to put up roadblocks
divided in State legislature
we came up with public private partnership bipartisan - to help implement the program
House, Gov and cabinet are preventing implementation of law
Florida has large number who need this law
Rick Scott contradicts himself
Focus on sandbag issues:
best way to defeat program - make sure no one knows about it
Gov Scott - restricting navigators - violate Hippa law
two: legislature passed bill - lowest rates possible
we must find a way to put aside differences and move forward with the law.
This is from last week???:
Florida state rep - R
contract - pages blank - question - blank pages - trust me
Positive you would not have invested
ACA - workforce shortage worse
kept states uninformed
2020 - national shortage of physicians and nurses
doctor workforce retiring
because of exchanges and ACA - patients less care, demand will increase
ACA promise - keep doctor but it is an empty promise
rise 5 - 40% increased cost
DC has no information about privacy
state exchange - questions - they didn’t respond until after deadline and it did not answer any questions
Florida rejected state exchange
applicants will give private information
registration of navigators - state legislature passed
Medicaid is a problem, but gov continues to push
difficult to estimate cost of medicaid expansion - and increased costs
gov will be able to keep funding promises despite being 17 Trillion in debt
We deserve to have our concerns heard
Please listen here
Lankford asks questions of victims
Doctor in Kansas - saved money and got additional services - look at long term outcomes
got rid of mandates so people could have a choice
Jackie Speier - D
Happy to hear Issa isn’t trying to kill Obamacare
Health insurance through your state -
Tri- care - 500 dollars a year
when were you asked to participate
Mid week - impressive you have been able to put together your statement with footnotes
Anyone help you develop your statements?
staff helps- asks if ALEC helped - No
Louisiana Gov, Jindal said:
We don’t think it makes any sense, we are going to fight it
Is it a challenge when the gov is committed to killing it?
Response: difficult challenge cites reasons for statement
does it make sense to delay Obamacare?
Yes - and what plan in Tri-care is 500 per month
Was Howard Dean right or wrong
Don’t thin it will be rationing
Hoffa - change 40 hour work week? Union heads - wrong
Max Baucus - was he wrong?
Buffett - was he wrong? yes
We need to work together
home town Chicago - delay entire law - were they wrong? I think they were wrong
Does it make sense when Kroger announced spouses will not longer be covered
UPS - spouses no longer covered
Product guarantee - companies no longer being able to keep insurance
Question: is it possible that Issa is playing passive and accomidating, opening doors (modify rather than overturn) Obamacare that the Dems aren’t willing to walkthough ... Making the GOP look “reasonable” while helping ensure that the Dems bear full culpability when it fails disasterously?
Tried to stop it, couldn’t. Tried to repeal it, couldn’t. Tried to defund it, couldn’t. Tried to get the Dems to at least acknowlege and fix the major problems with it, couldn’t. So don’t blame us for this nightmare of a mess.
Democrat - Cartwright
Kansas - SCOTUS Mandate tax
now law - lawyer of S Carolina - protect citizens private info
Senator - Baucus comment - in context - full law implementation
Florida -Eleanor Sobel- Scott banned navigators from operating on Health Dept premises
Groups can’t access because of denial
Issa - questions
States have legitimate concerns about reimbursement by Federal gov - unsustainable
S. Carolina - gov - first 3 years - funding
Release of 2400 soc sec numbers
Question of your private information accessed by public
county health dept
doctors private info - hippa not applying to navigators
navigators are gathering info
trainwreck - cost and privacy
there were problems - before Obamacare
cliff - certain income - eligibility - and pay increase - because of means testing
I do want to address cost of health care
don’t confuse my votes to repeal - bill was partisan and no GOP votes, pass before reading it
has flaws - bill that should be started over
Witnesses came on their own dime
