Dr. David Scheiner, former doctor of President Obama, appeared on Lou Dobbs' TV show to criticize his patient's new health care proposal. He says Obama shouldn't expand Medicaid because it is "not a good system", and their patients are treated in a "third class fashion... that's not the American way of life." Dr. Scheiner also adds that Medicare needs to be "tightened up." Dobbs closed the interview by suggesting he should get together with his former patient and talk over "a beer at the White House."

President Barack Obama is including a proposal from Sen. John McCain, his Republican rival last year, as part of his health care reform plan. Obama said he wants to help those who can't get insurance because of pre-existing medical conditions. (Sept. 9)

President Barack Obama's signature health-care plan is being rolled out across the US. January 1 marks the day when health insurance through the Affordable Care Act becomes available to millions of Americans. But the programme is under intense criticism after the government's health-care website experienced some breakdown, leaving millions unable to sign up. Al Jazeera's Patty Culhane reports from Washington DC.

Obama wants the government to control health care decisions. 2) McCain wants to expand health care options. Obama wants to limit health care options. 3) Both candidates want to improve quality and lower the cost of health care, but they have different ideas on how to get there.

The bill doesn’t know what problem it’s trying to solve. For more Vox analysis: http://www.vox.com/2017/1/5/14179258/obamacare-repeal-republican-votes-trump You can read the bill here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/06/politics/house-republicans-obamacare-repeal-replace-text/ https://waysandmeans.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/03.06.17-AmericanHealthCareAct_Summary.pdf Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Republicans in the House have finally released a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare: the American Health Care Act. The GOP healthcare bill keeps some of the most popular parts of Obamacare, like letting young adults stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26 and requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions. But the Republican bill gets rid of the key element that made Obamacare work: the individual mandate. Now that people aren't required to have insurance, healthy people could leave insurance pools en masse, leaving sick people who are more expensive to cover. Hypocrisy is a minor sin in politics, but still, it is remarkable how much of it there is to be found in this legislation. A core Republican complaint when Obamacare was passed was that the law delayed many of its provisions in order to reduce public outcry and manipulate the CBO’s score. The GOP bill is similarly aggressive with such tricks, delaying changes to the Medicaid expansion until 2020 and pushing Obamacare’s tax on expensive insurance plans out until 2025. Because Republicans aren’t even trying to win Democratic votes, they’re stuck designing a bill that can wiggle through the budget reconciliation process (another thing they complained about Democrats doing). That means they can’t make major changes to insurance markets like repealing Obamacare’s essential benefit standards or allowing insurance to be sold across state lines. That last part is particularly striking, given that it was one of President Trump’s five demands in his speech last week. I’ve always been skeptical about the savings Republicans could wrest by changing those regulations, but now they can’t get those savings at all — which means sacrificing a key part of their theory of cost control. This bill has a lot of problems, and more will come clear as experts study its language, the Congressional Budget Office release its estimates, and industry players make themselves heard. But the biggest problem this bill has is that it’s not clear why it exists. What does it make better? What is it even trying to achieve? Democrats wanted to cover more people and reduce long-term costs, and they had an argument for how their bill did both. As far as I can tell, Republicans have neither. At best, you can say this bill makes every obvious health care metric a bit worse, but at least it cuts taxes on rich people? Is that really a winning argument in American politics? In reality, what I think we’re seeing here is Republicans trying desperately to come up with something that would allow them to repeal and replace Obamacare. This is a compromise of a compromise of a compromise aimed at fulfilling that promise. But “repeal and replace” is a political slogan, not a policy goal. This is a lot of political pain to endure for a bill that won’t improve many peoples’ lives, but will badly hurt millions.

Obama is calling for a public health insurance plan to compete with private insurers as a way to lower costs. Republicans say its a government takeover and is too costly. What do you support? President Obama said toady that he absolutely believes health care reform will be passed by the end of the year. Do you think that will happen? How should we pay for health care reform?

Lost in the economic crisis, the lousy horserace numbers for McCain, and the personal attacks of the McCain camp is the ongoing health care crisis in the United States. With our current system, there remain 47 million without care and millions more who are underinsured. Cost issues exist alongside inequalities of care access. And now, with unemployment rising, the issue is becoming more acute. Paul Krugman: Conservative Republicans still hate Medicare, and would kill it if they could — in fact, they tried to gut it during the Clinton years (thats what the 1995 shutdown of the government was all about). But so far they havent been able to pull that off. So John McCain wants to destroy the health insurance of nonelderly Americans instead. But but Not good. Obama's idea is different. Today, he signed on to the Health Care for America Now principles, which do not endorse specific legislation, but are compatible with single payer and other approaches. From a press release: Today, Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) signed the Health Care for America Now statement declaring that he is on the side of quality, affordable health care for all and opposed to leaving Americans on their own with unregulated health insurance. There's still plenty of room to argue about the best way to get there, but with a recession looming and people in danger of losing their jobs, this is not an issue that can be ignored any more. Expect it to be brought up in the town hall debate tomorrow - unlike the phoney stuff being brought up by McCain's campaign and his increasingly shrill VP candidate, who caters only to the shrinking Republican base, this is an issue that all Americans actually care about. "Health Care for America Now's goal this year is to get the next President and a majority of Congress committed to the principles of quality, affordable health care for all and opposed to policies that would tax our benefits at work and leave us on our own with the unregulated, bureaucratic private insurance industry," said Richard Kirsch, National Campaign Manager, Health Care for America Now. "With Senator Obama's signature, we are taking a major step towards getting the next President and Congress to make comprehensive health care reform a priority in 2009." John McCain's plan is anything but acceptable. Since it's all about saving money and nothing else, he proposes, according to the WSJ: McCain Plans Federal Health Cuts...Medicare, Medicaid Spending Would Be Reduced to Offset Proposed Tax Credit Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Sen. McCain's senior policy adviser, said Sunday that the campaign has always planned to fund the tax credits, in part, with savings from Medicare and Medicaid. Those government health-care programs serve seniors, poor families and the disabled. Medicare spending for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30 is estimated at $457.5 billion. http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/10/6/124346/441/758/621648 Those of us who analyze health policy and trends for a living have struggled to follow John McCain's health plan through its many seemingly-improvised changes. First he was taxing health benefits through both payroll and income tax. Then he said he only intended to apply income tax, which meant that his plan would create even larger deficits. Now he says there won't be deficits, because he's going to make up the cost of those tax credits by slashing Medicare and Medicaid. When a candidate suddenly, almost whimsically changes the way he proposes to handle $1.3 trillion - which is the amount of money his plan puts in play over the next ten years - it's time to get nervous. We already knew the McCain plan was going to cost most Americans money (in at least three different ways.) Now we know it could jeopardize their medical care when they get older, too. The end result of this off-the-cuff planning could change the way Americans receive, or don't receive, medical care in this country...at least three kinds of health "tax increases" (more accurately described as increased personal cost) under the McCain plan: a "slow bleed" for people who retain coverage as the tax credit falls behind inflation, a $,7000-plus spike for people who lose their coverage immediately, and an increase in out-of-pocket costs (and denials, etc.) for people who still have insurance. What do we get in return? According to that neutral study, three million uninsured would gain coverage - briefly. After five years the number of uncovered would go up. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rj-eskow/mccains-erratic-health-st_b_132242.html

Love him or hate him but this needs to heard because it affects everyone including liberals and conservatives. The healthcare plan that the president promised to pass has a provision on page 16 that makes new private insurance subscribers illegal. That means you can keep the healthcare you have but after this bill is passed you will no longer have an option at getting anything other than the public healthcare and the majority of employers will then switch to the public option thus giving the wonderful government complete control over your healthcare and that would ultimately let them dictate how you live your life and what you can and can't do that might injure you or what you can and can't eat because we aren't responsible enough to decide what to eat for ourselves. This will also include rationing of healthcare based on age and probability of survival and it would insure that all illegals are covered and add to the lines that will form with Obama's healthcare reform. Is this the American Way? Are we to give away free healthcare and have the government dictate who gets what based on whatever guidelines they decide to implement? Do you want MORE governmental control on something as important as healthcare? Do you want the same government running healthcare who finds it cheaper to assist you in suicide and abortion than to give you the medicine and surgery to keep you alive or your baby alive? This is one of the most important BILLS out there to stop besides the horrendous Cap and Trade (tax and kill) Bill that they are trying to shove down our throats and the upcoming Immigration Reform Bill that will make instant citizens of the 20-30 million illegals who have no respect for our laws, borders, language, or culture of OUR country. Is that what you want? Is this what you voted for? Time to kill these bills and contact your representatives and Senators and let them know you don't want it and that if they vote for any of this they are getting a pink slip in the 2010 and 2012 elections because the days of them spending us into oblivion and running on autopilot and doing as they please or as their party tells them to do is no longer an option. They WORK for us and they need to be reminded of that!
