Gov. Brewer’s Medicaid expansion guarantees additional expenses, AZ debt
The Indystar reports insurance rates in Indiana will increase 72 percent for those with individual plans under Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul, according to the state’s insurance department.
Costs for individual plans are expected to spike from an average of $255 per member per month in 2012 to $570 in 2014, when the most aspects of the law go into effect. The WSJ’s Washington Wire reports even Obama’s longtime collaborating labor unions are expressing their fears of what they call the ‘Destructive Consequences’ emanating from ObamaCare.
This calamity that others have run from is what Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has embraced in a breathless Medicaid expansion surrender. Her colossal acquiescence in February 2013 amid gimmickry and double talk remains beyond comprehension, and has put her at odds with Republicans in her own state. In fact it was only via the creation of an alliance with Democrats and complicit Republican betrayers, that she was able to force this monstrosity on Arizona’s citizens after initially opting out in November 2012.
Brewer and those voting with her have been censured by myriad AZ GOP districts. Her actions have caused Maricopa County Republican chairman A.J. LaFaro to declare, “Brewer will be one of the worst governors in AZ history.” As we reported Friday, LaFaro expressed his appreciation to those courageous and principled County and LD Republican Committees who have already conducted votes of “censure” and/or “no confidence.”
While ObamaCare was being pushed through Congress in 2010, the Obama administration and its allies were unequivocal in two claims: If you like your doctor and you like your current health care plan, you can keep them both. Now it turns out that’s a “well, maybe.”
The Weekly Standard exposes the rest of the administration’s trickery.
At that time, Glenn Beck was on to this deception. Watch and listen closely. It’s a learning experience:
