Will the Arkansas House Insurance and Commerce Committee Recall the Lesson of Blanche Lincoln

Will the Arkansas Liberal Legislators remember what ended Blanche Lincoln’s return to the U.S. Senate in 2010?

Just because Governor Beebe has garnered another backroom deal with the Bogus POTUS as the setup and the Arkansas assembly attempts to serve it, this is not a tennis match or any other game…

ARKANSAS RED ALERT

HUGE RED FLAG!

Received via email this morning:

Date: Mon, Mar 21, 2011 at 10:13 PM
Subject: Bill to Implement Obamacare in Arkansas THIS WEDNESDAY

“…HB2138- TO IMPLEMENT FEDERAL HEALTHCARE REFORM; AND TO CREATE THE ARKANSAS HEALTH BENEFITS EXCHANGE; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.
http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2011/2011R/bills/HB2138.pdf

This is bill is scheduled to be heard in the House Insurance and Commerce Committee THIS Wednesday at 10am.

We cannot sit back and count on the Supreme Court to overturn this, or for Congress to defund it or repeal it. Ronald Reagan once said, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear.”
Those who support Obamacare are trying to implement it as fast as they can because they know even if the Supreme Court overturns this, it will be very hard to undo.

We must keep it from getting implemented in the first place. If you can at all be at the Capital on Wednesday morning, please do so. It is important that we have a crowd there to show our opposition.
Also take time over the next couple of days to email, call, or fax your representative and ask others to do so as well. Please be polite and respectful when you contact them.

Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement…”

Just a head’s up assembly legislators, I don’t think Entergy has enough “fall on your swords conciliation seats” to keep your futures afloat.

The TEA Party is watching you! Do the right thing!

Are the Liberal Arkansas State Legislators Trying to Pull A Fast One Over on Arkansans?

Wisconsin has ‘Fleebaggers‘, Indiana has ‘Fleebaggers‘, but Arkansas has ‘Legislators who can’t make it all the way to Illinois to whine in the Liberal bedlam‘ so… we’ll just mix around a few words and become Shambaggers.

Received via email this evening:
Sent: Sun, Mar 20, 2011 5:16 pm
Subject: Urgent: Bill Implementing Obamacare in Arkansas set to run NEXT week.

“…The time has come when the liberals will to try to push thru a bill here in Arkansas that will allow Obamacare to be implemented here in Arkansas.

Rep Hyde amended HB2138 late yesterday…

Here is a link to the amendment: http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2011/2011R/Amendments/HB2138-H1.pdf

The title was changed to: “AN ACT TO ENSURE CONTINUED LOCAL REGULATION OF INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE
COVERAGE BY ENABLING THE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER TO CONTINUE SERVING
ARKANSANS; TO IMPLEMENT FEDERAL HEALTHCARE REFORM; AND TO CREATE THE ARKANSAS
HEALTH BENEFITS EXCHANGE; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.”

Notice the subtitle: “TO ALLOW THE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER TO PROTECT ARKANSANS BY THE CONTINUED
LOCAL REGULATION OF INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE.”

It is on the calendar for Insurance and Commerce for this Wednesday, but it could be run either on Tuesday (thru Public Health) or as late as Friday.

I have heard a rumor that they will run an identical bill at the same time on the Senate side (See SB880), but it hasn’t been amended yet. Also Senator Malone is listed as a cosponsor on the House bill.
Please be aware that they could ram it thru here in Arkansas in as little as 3 days…”

But the Arkansas Constitution page 70 clearly notes:
I do believe that Obamacare/Healthcare is within the parameters of an illegal exaction!

Arkansans, now is the time to come to the aid of our state, do not hesitate… the Liberals are despised, the lies and dirty tricks are constant and now they play disguise the name of the bill! Countrywide, Liberals are being shown as the children with temper tantrums they are and pushing through with a herd mentality. This is too absurd to continue. How about a recall, statute law or several other choices by initiating one of these lawful options as viewed on Wikipedia:

Ever Vigilant John C. Fleming “The Fleming Health Care Repeal Update”

John C. Fleming, is not just a voice for Louisiana, he has kept all of America informed on that albatross that is Obamacare and all the side effects from this malignant tumor upon “We the People”:

FLEMING HEALTH CARE REPEAL UPDATE
Health Care Reform = Fewer Choices for Insurance Products
“Having 30 million new people, many with tax credits to buy health insurance, is going to spur new entrants [insurance companies].” Nancy-Ann DeParle, head of the White House Office of Health Reform.

Despite the Obama administration’s claims that the new health reform law will expand  competition in the insurance market, the facts are bleak.  Already companies are pulling out of specific markets,  and some smaller companies have stopped offering health insurance altogether.

In September, Principal Financial Group, an Iowa-based insurance company that provides coverage to about 840,000 people, announced plans to stop selling health insurance.  According to Principal Financial Group, which caters to small businesses, its exit from the insurance market is in part because under the new health care reform, smaller insurers will have a harder time competing with bigger companies.  It has been reported that UnitedHealth Group Inc., the largest health insurer in the United States by revenue, will renew the Principal policies as the contracts expire.   This hardly sounds like increased competition!

Similarly, Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna Inc, Cigna Corp. and others recently announced that they will halt new “child-only” policies in California, Illinois, Florida, Connecticut and elsewhere because of mandates of the new health care reform law.   Cigna Corp., which will halt the policies in 10 states, stated that they made the decision to stop offering “child-only” policies, “to ensure that we can remain competitive in the 10 markets where we sell individual and family plans.”

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU: With fewer insurance companies competing in the market, more of the market is now controlled by a few big insurance companies.  This will likely mean higher prices and fewer choices available to consumers.   Limiting insurance choices for Americans is the wrong solution for lowering the cost of health care.

THE DOCTOR’S DIAGNOSIS:
We have just seen the tip of the iceberg as this new health care reform law continues to be implemented.  I believe it is inevitable that families will see fewer options, less competition and higher premium prices.  The new health care reform bill must be repealed.  Rest assured I will continue to work to repeal what I firmly believe to be an onerous and unconstitutional health care reform law and find market-based solutions to our health care needs.
Sincerely,


JOHN FLEMING, M.D.
Member of Congress

Be Careful What You Dish For as AARP Learns the Hard Way

AARP Responds to Health Reform Bill: “It’s a Good Thing”

ForaTv | March 29, 2010

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/03/18/Health_and_…

A. Barry Rand, the CEO of AARP, weighs in on the healthcare reform bill. While Rand calls the bill “a good thing” and applauds it for trimming the deficit, he maintains that the bill is not “as much as we (older people) all want.”

—–

Rising healthcare costs are leading to financial insecurity and putting the futures of many older Americans at risk. Rand, CEO of AARP, discusses healthcare issues (including Medicare) and their impact on financial security in light of the new realities that are both defining and changing the nature of living in the 21st century.

He highlights the implications this has for leaders in business and nonprofit organizations, for policy makers (state and federal) and for individuals. – Commonwealth Club of California

Barry Rand is the CEO of AARP, a membership organization of over 40 million people age 50 and older, half of whom remain actively employed.

Prior to joining AARP, Mr. Rand distinguished himself as a leader of social change in some of our nation’s largest corporate and educational institutions. He currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Howard University and has served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Avis Group Holdings, CEO of Equitant Ltd., and Executive Vice President for Worldwide Operations at Xerox Corporation.

Mr. Rand continues to serve on a number of boards and advisory committees. He holds a B.A. from American University and an MBA from Stanford University where he was also a Sloan Executive Fellow.

And this is why I despise AARP and will never join its cult! It was an enabler of the Obamacare nightmare! Do you see it now! AARP tried to sucker punch the members and the American Public. “We the People” knew better and when AARP was confronted this example reveals the tooled agenda~

AARP Town Hall Meeting on Health Care – Dallas, August 4, 2009

vvanshel | August 05, 2009

AARP isn’t comfortable listening to its members, but pretends to represent their interests

AARP wanted to brainwash and raise their own rates. It was always… ‘All About the Money’! I guarantee they are not done yet, next the membership will go up and benefits will be cut back. Do you see it now?

Blanche Lincoln Whines As She Goes Down in Defeat

Oh so desperate Blanche…

Where’s the plan about the water purification devices as you dredge up 1/20 of pseudo facts?

Let’s discuss your vote on the Obamacare bill and how you enabled the entire fiasco that now is imploding the entire Democratic party? Typhoid Mary has nothing on you! bwa ha ha

Your footnote in history shall forever be known as the single-handed destroyer of the Democratic Party in the Election of 2010. How does that make you feel?

Let me be the first Conservative to say Thanks! And a reminder to Vote for John Boozman!
