March 20, 2017 - March 24, 2017 - Let's Get Busy - SPEAK UP and SPEAK OUT to SAVE you, your family and fellowmen


“It always seems impossible until it is done.”   Nelson Mandela
**************************
The People of the United States of America are under siege by those who find themselves in charter positions of elected-appointed-hired-donor for hire government representatives. These are primarily folk who are Oath-sworn.

Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC through its Indivisible - Milwaukee (The Hub) call upon like-minds to forge an Intersectionality of race, gender and class to prepare to STAND TALL and save yourselves through ACTION-Oriented steps that connect to those we have in elected office, those we put in office on April 4, 2017 and going forward.

At this time our entire Infrastructure of quality of life and economic development is threatened.


March 23rd, 2010
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, was passed in the senate on December 24, 2009, and passed in the house on March 21, 2010. It was signed into law by President Obama on March 23rd, 2010and upheld in the supreme court on June 28, 2012.

The national health care named the Affordable Health Care Act signed March 20, 2010, by President Barack Hussein Obama, 44th President of the United States, was to finally provide ALL the People of America with health care coverage.
================

What is Obamacare?

The ACA, signed into law in 2010, expands affordable health care coverage. The purpose is to prevent insurance companies from hiking up premium costs and from charging different rates based on varying health conditions. It levels the playing field, and provides health insurance to those who could not afford it. The law allows federal and state governments to set up exchanges, which are marketplaces through which Americans can buy insurance.
Obamacare has also expanded Medicaid to provide health coverage to those who cannot afford health care. Individuals in the Medicare program (65+) are not affected.

How does it offset costs?

Federal tax credits and subsidies are given to families and individuals below 400% the poverty line.

What does the law put in place to prevent insurance companies from unfairly hiking up prices? How does Obamacare balance the playing field so everyone gets insured equally?

The ACA has employed several rules to check insurance companies:
    •   insurance rates cannot be tied to health conditions; all types health cares must be covered
    •   insurance companies cannot deny someone health coverage due to a preexisting condition
    •   there is a limit as to how much insurance companies can profit

What are other benefits of the legislation that serve the common good?

A mainstay of the ACA is it’s effort to increase affordability. Under Obamacare, prescription drugs have become more affordable.

What are some imperfections of the legislation?

The most contentious aspect of the law is the individual mandate, which requires almost all Americans to receive health care, otherwise suffer a penalty. The penalty for not obtaining health insurance is expected to rise from $695 to $2000 in 2016.
Because insurance companies had to cover more people and more conditions, health care premiums have risen for those already with health insurance.
The legislation is rather costly for taxpayers as well, at $1.2 trillion over the 10 years (starting from its unveil in 2010). However, the physical cost of Obamacare compared to its moral and societal impact is arguably minimal. In addition, the budget officials are estimating that the law will cost 11% less than originally thought of when drafted.

The framers knew that there was much more to be done to fine-tune America's NEW health care law.

The framers also knew that when they reached a certain point in the framing, they were at a position to MOVE or LOSE.  

The well- and ill-fought issues were so contentious, but the President and the Democrats got it to and OVER the line by getting enough votes for signing it into law.  It is fair and appropriate to say that our Republican leaders at the national level of our government chose to not support the Health Care Act.  
=====================
==========================

Today, we find ourselves in a FIGHT-FOR-OUR-LIFE.

Make no mistake about it, the REPEAL that the majority Republican (Senate, House of Representative and White House - Executive Branch and Legislative Branch) have disclosed so far GUARANTEES:

  • the low and no income folk will not be able to PAY/afford heath care coverages - NO MATTER HOW MANY OPTIONS GIVEN IN MARKETPLACE.
  • Seniors, Mothers w/children and Disabled on Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare will be left out of what they have NOW - and they 
  •  Over 14,000 million folk on/and or receiving the ACA will lose their health care insurance through "bait-n-switch" language by Paul Ryan (House of Representative), Donald Trump (U.S. President), Mitch McConnell (Senate) and the gang of Greed.
===============

 Supreme Court ObamaCare Ruling. The Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare on June 28, 2012. The final ruling on ObamaCare was a made by Supreme Court Judge Vinson. The basic idea of the ruling was that ObamaCare was declared a tax and not a mandate, and was therefore declared constitutional.

The ACA was originally introduced in the Senate. This would deem itunconstitutional. In June 2012, the Supreme Court declared the ACA is unconstitutional, since it violated the Commerce Clause, which stipulates the government cannot compel individuals to engage in commerce — that is, to purchase goods and services.  Dec 20, 2013.
