09/09 - Health Care Reform: A Louisiana Perspective

While health care reform is on the nation's radar, what will current proposals mean to you?

Are you satisfied with your current health insurance?
While health care reform is on the nation's radar, what will current proposals mean to you?

Backgrounder

As Congress debates ways to expand healthcare coverage and control rising costs, Louisianans should have a significant interest in the discussion. According to the Center for Medicaid/Medicare Services, Louisiana’s personal health expenditures total over $22 billion. Roughly 20% of the state’s population is uninsured. Poor health outcomes have placed the state either 49th or 50th in the United Health Foundation’s national health rankings for the last 17 years. The Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana has indicated that “every study shows that insurance coverage improves access to care and leads to better health outcomes.”

We have to repeal health care as it is NOW! It is an Obamanation.

Posted by TKTPLZ  on  10/27  at  08:18 PM

With the majority of Americans giving the new Congress Failing grades and polling to Historic new lows, will Republicans have time to redeem themselves. Most Americans polling now say Republicans are not helping to get jobs but are hurting. Most Americans poll that they would like consensus on issues and Congress to work together. 68% of Americans including 68% of millionaires and billionaires agree that Taxes on the Wealthiest must be included in any deficit reduction plans but none of the Republicans agree with what the People of US say on this. Cuts to Medicare are opposed by 75% of Americans and the Republicans already voted for major cuts in the Radical Ryan Budget which most economists says does little for deficit and includes more Tax cuts to the Rich. Republicans want to repeal Dodd-Frank…the only protection we have against another Republican financial disaster like we had under Bush. They also want to repeal Health Care reform putting millions of Americans at risk without care. All of these Republican ideas are opposed by the majority of Americans.

Is there anything that can redeem them in time for 2012 or will the American People vote the bums out?
