Report out on President Obama’s Healthcare Law

10 hours 3 min ago

A new government report on health insurance has implications for the presidential campaign. The National Health Interview Survey says eight states saw a significant drop last year in the number of residents without health insurance. They are Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, and New York. Politically, that’s a mix of red, blue and purple states. All but Florida had accepted a Medicaid expansion that’s one of two major pathways to coverage under President Obama’s health care law. The other coverage route is subsidized private insurance, available in all 50 states. GOP presidential candidates are vowing to repeal “Obamacare,” with hardly any detail on how they’d replace it without millions losing coverage. Overall, the nation’s uninsured rate dropped to 9.1 percent in 2015.

Defending Punxsutawney Phil

Fri, 02/05/2016 - 1:38pm

One state lawmaker here in Pennsylvania, has some harsh words for a Weather Channel meteorologist who he claims insulted Punxsutawney Phil. State Rep. Peter Daley wrote a letter to Stephanie Abrams, asking her to publicly apologize for remarks she made on Groundhog Day, calling Phil “just a rodent.” Daley called Abrams’ statements “unprofessional” and “demeaning” saying that if Phil is ‘just a rodent’ then the Grand Canyon is just a ditch, the pierogi is just a snack, and the Pittsburgh Steelers is just another football team. Daley said that disparaging Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day is unacceptable and uncouth.
