Treasury report on Obamacare shows after losing $67 million, IRS wants $440 million more

Graph: U.S. TreasuryA report from the U.S. Treasury citing $67 million in unaccounted for indirect Obamacare (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) costs is not the only finding Americans should be concerned about. It’s necessary to read between the lines and the takeaway is that we have no idea of how “many resources” IRS has devoted to Obamacare implementation. Nor do we have a full estimate of the resources needed in the future although IRS has asked for $440 million more taxpayer dollars.

Sen. Rand Paul: ‘Cruz has started a rebellion against coercion’

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) set a youthful, determined stance in comparison to the ageing GOP Old Guard. Still standing on the U.S. Senate floor after starting his not-a-filibuster speech on Tuesday, and still articulate and  energetic, Cruz fielded questions laden with remarks from fellow senators. He even brought up the Star Wars films, saying, “This is a fight to get the empire to listen to the people.”

Sen. Mitch McConnell's office provided this photo of ObamaCare regulations so far. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act commonly called ObamaCare will impact health insurance for every individual in the Sunshine State and at present, the outlook is cloudy.

Go ahead—take a look at HHS’ self-help site on ObamaCare

Sample checklist from the federal government regarding ObamaCare. (Snip/HHS)I took a look at the Health and Human Services website to explore the exchanges President Barack Obama and the Democrats have been touting. October 1 is the magic day when control of the healthcare market moves to the federal government.

Although I fully expect our family's health insurance costs to rise, I wanted to see what the Obama adminstration had done to prepare Americans for radical changes in our health insurance and the radical changes in healthcare that will occur once the federal bureaucracy controls the market.

ObamaCare Primer: An underfunded ‘train wreck’ with Harry Reid driving the engine

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act otherwise known as ObamaCare has earned a new name from key Democrats—“train wreck.”

Photo: Deborah Cartagena/CDCSen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Obama’s captain in ramrodding the bill, and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), commander of the reconciliation that stuck everyday Americans with one of the most poorly written, lobbyist-friendly bills in our history, both used the “train wreck” metaphor to describe a bill the Democrat Party promoted as though it was the second coming of Jesus or Pachamama, depending on your spiritual bent.

Thing is, that wrecked train had both Reid and Baucus at the wheel. And now in his customary deceptive manner, Reid is blaming Republicans.

By Wendy N. Powell, contributor

Photo: CDCThe Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is becoming increasingly less popular with Americans and concurrently less partisan in Washington.

Many in Congress who supported the law are changing their support consistent with the public sentiment, and because concerns are rising about political futures over support for what was once marketed as the answer to American health care woes.

The Medicare Free Wellness Visit: I’d Rather See a Veterinarian 

By guest contributor Marilyn M. Singleton, M.D., J.D.

A friend went in for his Medicare free “wellness visit,” compliments of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). He assumed it was like a doctor’s annual check-up. After all, when he took his dog to the vet for a wellness visit, little Sparky was examined and tested for worms. So my friend made the mistake of asking the doctor to listen to his heart and lungs – just because that is what we expect physicians will do. Then he got a bill.

Neither my friend nor his physician realized that if the patient was actually touched during the free wellness visit, it ceased to be free.
