US Congressman and Doctor John C. Fleming Never Fails to Deliver A Quick Concise Diagnosis

I bet Louisiana’s 4th District always beams with pride when they see that their tax dollars are spent wisely on the salary of US Congressman and John C. Fleming, M.D. I am amazed at the care and timeliness of his reports back to his constituents. As always he has a perspective that can not be ignored on the Obamascare/Obamacare/Health Scare/Health Care legislation. America he’s looking out for all of us, not just his district!

FLEMING HEALTH CARE REPEAL UPDATE
Congressman Fleming Introduces Legislation to Handicap Implementation of New Health Care Reform Law

As you may have heard, the House voted to repeal the new health care reform law, but the Senate failed to do so this week by a vote of 47-51.  So, as a recent article in The New England Journal of Medicine pointed out, a step in the right direction is to choke off funding for the new law.

For this reason, I have introduced H.R. 38 to rescind the Health Insurance Reform Implementation Fund, a $1 billion fund appropriated as part of the Reconciliation package to pay for federal administrative expenses at the IRS and the Department of Health and Human Services to carry out the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU:  As of the end of November 2010, $40.8 million of these funds have been obligated to provide for administrative expenses of the Health and Human Services and the IRS to implement the new health care reform law.  By rescinding this fund, $900 million would be returned to the treasury, thereby reducing the federal deficit.

While this represents only a small fraction of the astronomical cost of the new health care law, it would have a substantial affect on implementation as it removes the funding source for administrative expenses in carrying out the laws.

THE DOCTOR’S DIAGNOSIS:  When government-administered health care reform passed Congress last year, the Democrat majority together with the President, raised all sorts of claims like: it would lower insurance premiums, increase health care access and lower costs.  Contrary to these claims, as this law continues to be implemented, insurance premiums continue to rise, health care insurance companies are offering fewer options, some companies will no longer offer insurance, and Medicaid and Medicare are facing significant physician shortages.  The American people have spoken clearly that they do not want government-administered health care.  It’s time to stop implementing this new health care law and choke it off at the roots.  That is why I have introduced H.R. 38, to handicap implementation of this devastating law.

I remain committed to continue to work aggressively in Congress to repeal what I firmly believe to be an onerous and unconstitutional health care reform law and support market-based solutions to our health care needs.

Sincerely,


JOHN FLEMING, M.D.
Member of Congress

Powerful Interest in Speakers of the House – Twitter Records Huge Difference

The proof is in the screen captures:



This is truly reflective of the lean amount of real support…  that she never had! Also note the snit the previous princess exhibits in her latest tweet. Witch!





Now John Boehner has earned the respect of “We the People”! Keep it up and don’t let us down Sir!

The U.S. House of Representatives Reads the U.S. Constitution – Unity!

Very smart, Speaker of the House John Boehner! Not one Representative can ever state that they didn’t know or recognize the law of the land.

Members of Congress Read the U.S. Constitution, Preamble and Article

PBSNewsHour | January 06, 2011 |

On the second day of the new Congress, members of the U.S. House of Representatives read the Constitution aloud on the House Floor. Members take turns reading the preamble and sections from Article I.


Although one twit, Rep. Jay Inslee, prior to the reading, wanted an additional 15 minutes of fame by being a petulant nuisance to the entire body by whining specifics. Or was he just being another blatant liberal tool right out of the gate?


A Breath of Fresh Air as the New Congress is Sworn In

Finally, it is encouraging to know that the Presidential line of succession now has Speaker of the House John Boehner in position.We the Peopleof the United States of America have been heard! Now let’s get Obamacare repealed!

Excerpts from Boehner’s Speech to the Opening Session of the 112th Congress
 

Jan 5, 2011 Washington– Following are excerpts from Congressman John Boehner’s (R-West Chester) remarks to the opening session of the 112th Congress which will convene today at 12:00 p.m. ET:* * * * * * * * * * * *

“We gather here today at a time of great challenges.  Nearly one in ten of our neighbors are looking for work.  Health care costs are still rising for families and small businesses.  Our spending has caught up with us, and our debt will soon eclipse the size of our entire economy.  Hard work and tough decisions will be required of the 112th Congress. No longer can we fall short.  No longer can we kick the can down the road.  The people voted to end business as usual, and today we begin carrying out their instructions.”

* * * * * * * * * * * *

“The American people have humbled us.  They have refreshed our memories as to just how temporary the privilege to serve is.  They have reminded us that everything here is on loan from them.  That includes this gavel, which I accept cheerfully and gratefully, knowing I am but its caretaker.  After all, this is the people’s House.  This is their Congress.  It’s about them, not us.  What they want is a government that is honest, accountable and responsive to their needs.  A government that respects individual liberty, honors our heritage, and bows before the public it serves.”

* * * * * * * * * * * *

“Our aim will be to give government back to the people.  In seeking this goal, we will part with some of the rituals that have come to characterize this institution under majorities Republican and Democratic alike.  We will dispense with the conventional wisdom that bigger bills are always better; that fast legislating is good legislating; that allowing additional amendments and open debate makes the legislative process ‘less efficient’ than our forefathers intended.  These misconceptions have been the basis for the rituals of modern Washington.  The American people have not been well served by them.”

* * * * * * * * * * * *

“We will not always get it right.  We will not always agree on what is right.  A great deal of scar tissue has built up on both sides of the aisle.  We cannot ignore that, nor should we. My belief has always been, we can disagree without being disagreeable to each other.  That’s why it is critical this institution operate in a manner that permits a free exchange of ideas, and resolves our honest differences through a fair debate and a fair vote.  We may have different – sometimes, very different – ideas for how to go about achieving the common good, but it is our shared goal.  It is why we serve.”

NOTE: Boehner’s speech will take place after the election of the Speaker and will be streamed live online at the Pledge to America Facebook Page.

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

I ask you, if you have a malignant tumor, what would the average American do?

Arkansas Senator-Elect John Boozman Starts Out Right!

Arkansas Sen.-elect Boozman to support GOP ban on earmarks and he wants to hear from “We the People” of Arkansas! How refreshing!

Confirmed via this

TELE-TOWN HALL CONFERENCE CALL TONIGHT AT 8:00 (CT)

The New Republican Senator From Arkansas

Obviously in Washington, DC during the Lame Duck Session as a working Representative of the House and as the newly elected Senator going through orientation… GOP Welcomes Freshman Republican Senators …he is unable to be present in Arkansas. With so much on his plate, though, it’s great to know that John Boozman is working overtime for Arkansans! Thank-you, Sir!

I will be listening in, and might even key in for a question!

Update from Call

Call lasted from a prompt 8 pm to 8:25 pm

John Boozman thanked Arkansans for their “…advocacy…”.

He advised that there are 3 major items in the works at the Lame Duck Congress:

1 Continuation of the Tax Policy.

2 The Continuing Appropriation Bills.

3 DADT which he is “…opposed to changing…”.

Other items that could/may be brought up are the Dream Act (he “opposes”) and English as the Official Language. He answered several call in questions directly with no hesitation or fluff. I feel there is now a fiscally conservative Arkansas official, who is ready to dig in, persevere, and help secure these United States of America!

Congratulations to the Republican Senator, John Boozman of Arkansas
