The LuLac Edition #3397, January 6th, 2017
Today I learned that my prescription drug costs for this year were reduced. These drugs are important because they keep me in neurological remission and enable me to be the same pain in the ass I’ve been for the last decades.
Did I genuflect and thank the President and say he did it? Did I write a thank you letter to all of the Congress people who made the ACA happen?
I did not.
Because they had nothing to do with the decrease.
The insurance carrier my company uses did that. The same carrier also increased my rates for the first time in four years. But I didn’t cry like a little baby because health care is a priority for me. Now I don’t have a sports car that I take to Giant’s Despair every year and I don’t show exotic recipes for the food I make and eat. For me health care is more of a priority so I just pay the bill. Because the perverted and heartless GOP Republicans in Congress poisoned the well for a national Health Care program, it is the cost of doing business and essentially the cost of living. For me that’s a no brainer and a no bitcher.
The Insurance Company was responsible.
Now the GOP wants to repeal Obama care but they say they want to keep pre existing conditions, extension of children on their parents health care until the age of 26 and have equal charges for women. (Uh men, just so you know, the reason why your rates went up is because the coverage for the women increased. Therefore the insurance companies evened it out. Just like my break for the prescription drugs were evened out by my PPO rate increase. One more time, the Insurance companies did that).
But I digress.
As I usually do.
Except on TV when I have 4 minutes and five seconds.
But back to my point, the GOP can’t keep all of the part they like but then get rid of the part they hate which is the mandate. Because the mandate pays for the program with healthier individuals.
Politically they can’t jettison those good things of the ACA because even the dumbest Trump voter will figure that out.
So if they repeal it, how will they pay for it with all of the things the President Elect wants to do?
Hey fellas, let’s not have any credit card deficits which you blamed on President Obama.
Repeal coming up? Ah but at what cost to the fat, happy and habitually ridiculous and morally bankrupt GOP Congressman?
Two of these three will close, they are -- SCI Retreat in Luzerne County, SCI Frackville in Schuylkill County, and SCI Waymart in Wayne County. The most likely one I think will be Retreat.
Senator John Yudichak was livid with hos fellow Democrat saying in a statement to WNEP TV, “"If the governor is saying he's not interested in law an order, he's not interested in public safety, he's not interested in keeping the bad guys off the street, then I'm very concerned," said Yudichak.
Wolf is a gusty guy doing this a year before an expected re-election run. If one of the local ones close, Yudichak who pretty much controls and runs the Democratic party in the Lu will be gunning for the Wolf man.
The decision is set for January 26th, the closures set for July.
Those attending will in turn be able ask questions and give our local Congressman some relief from the manure he was carrying during the recent election campaign for the President Elect.
What a pathetic joke this little man is.As well as his party.
