Tennessee Governor Wheels and Deals with Feds on Medicaid Expansion

Only Health Care Compact Can Bring About True Reform

Today, Tennessee members of Tea Party Patriots (TPP), the nation’s largest tea party organization, criticized Gov. Bill Haslam for claiming to reject the Medicaid expansion forced on the state by Obamacare but instead working out a special deal with the federal government to keep the money flowing in. His proposal would still use taxpayer dollars to expand Obamacare by subsidizing and enrolling those newly eligible for Medicaid in the now more expensive private insurance plans available to individuals and small businesses in the exchanges.

“Just like the governors of Arkansas and Florida, Gov. Bill Haslam is trying to have it both ways: he wants to earn credit from Americans concerned about the government takeover of healthcare for rejecting the Medicaid expansion, while getting a special deal from the Obama Administration on the side,” said Kurt Potter of 912 Project Tennessee, a group affiliated with TPP, and who holds an MBA in Health Administration. “This ‘third way’ tries to get more taxpayer dollars for a failed healthcare system. Only the passage of the Health Care Compact for Tennessee can exact true healthcare reform for the long term.

“We urge the Tennessee legislature to reject Gov. Haslam’s proposal and instead pass the Health Care Compact.”

The Health Care Compact is an interstate compact that restores authority and responsibility for health care regulation to the member states (except for military health care, which will remain federal), and provides the funds to the states to fulfill that responsibility. The Health Care Compact does not conflict with the efforts by state attorneys general, state legislators and members of congress to repeal or modify the health care bill.

    Tea Party Patriots: The Issue: The Insurance Industry Premimum costs should be going down and with it consumer costs. There will be an increase in the number of Policies Written with the increase of Obamacare initiative; therefore, the Client’s Policy Investment and cost should be less for the client population and business. The monetary policy in the Insurance Industry is handled differently than any of the other Fed Reserve Bank Treasury Notes and Bonds. If you research this in the Fed Reserve Sections to the Insurance Industry and State Fed Insurance Rules and Regulations you will find support to this issue; “The cost of insurance with the increase of the number of Policies written.” Obamacare works and the flaws are because it is in its first stages. This issue is one of those flaws, I believe.

    Instead of big government making decisions about your healthcare, it should be you and your family. In 1965, Medicare was projected to cost $9 billion by 1990. But in reality, by 1990 the cost of Medicare was up to $63 billion – seven times the original estimate! We all know that once a government program is implemented, it’s almost impossible to reverse it. With so many other governments around the world collapsing under socialism, why would we want to head in that direction? History proves that Socialism does not work. Big government promises equality for all, except for the chosen few. In a day and time when men are building towers to themselves, we need leaders who will hold to the Constitution in the spirit in which it was written and who will stand up to preserve liberty and freedom for the American people. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ov_y-dE22ew
