Charlie Katebi spoke with Chuck Gray on KVOC about reforms Governor Mead signed, allowing out-of-state physicians to practice in Wyoming and other reforms the Equality State should make to lower healthcare costs. July 14, 2015
Following the Supreme Court’s creative reading of Obamacare in its King v. Burwell decision, politicians rejoiced, including those in Wyoming. Governor Matt Mead said in a Press Release:
“This decision allows 17,000 people in Wyoming to continue to receive a tax credit for health insurance and avoids many potential complications of those individuals losing that credit. Simply stated, this ruling maintains the status quo.”
If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there’d be a shortage of sand.
Imagine being told by your doctor that you are too young for a knee replacement or even worse, waiting so long for bariatric surgery that you die. If you think this could never happen, think again. In the Canadian single-payer health care system, people languish and sometimes die on wait lists because government rations – or caps – the amount of health care it supplies. Government health care cheerleaders — take note.
After months of anticipation, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Obama Administration in King v. Burwell and upheld the IRS’s authority to issue insurance subsidies on the federal insurance exchange as part of Obamacare. This decision gives cover to the abuses of an out-of-control agency and allows it to continue punishing Wyoming through the individual and employer mandate.
Cheyenne: The Supreme Court today upheld the authority of the IRS to pay subsidies on the federal insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act, despite the law’s clear language that subsidies are available on exchanges “established by a state,” undermining the meaning of words and the separation of powers, Wyoming Liberty Group said today.
Progressives constantly frame the debate over healthcare reform as a false choice: should healthcare be financed through insurance companies or the government? Both options leave patients at the mercy of third parties.
Now an alternative known as Direct Primary Care promises to put the patient back in the driver’s seat. The patient pays a flat monthly fee or retainer, and in exchange, physicians provide primary care services. These services include checkups, urgent care, and chronic care management.
These ranged from what to do about the upcoming King v. Burwell decision to facilitating health care freedom with Direct Primary Care. June 9, 2015
