A great replacement for Obamacare already exists - MUST READ.

The ACA or Obamacare is worse than a disaster. Obamacare! No one can read it and understand it. It leaked out that it was designed with bad intentions. What is amazing is that anyone with medicare supplemental insurance is aware of a system that works great for the individual, but does not make much money for the ins. companies. Here is how it works. When you retire and begin on medicare you must pay for part B about $105/month. There is a deductible you must pay and 20% of doctor bills, etc. To be insured against paying the 20% and deductible you can buy supplemental ins. There are plans A B C D E F... I chose plan F because it covered everything that was not covered by medicare. The plans were "created by the government", so all insurance companies must insure you the same based on the plan you chose. At 68 it costs about $170/month for my plan F. The key is that the plans are not created by insurance companies, but by the government. Ins company plans are all different by design, so you can't compare or shop price. After choosing plan F I knew my coverage, so I called all the insurance companies and just picked the lowest price. Applying the same system to all health care would make it simple to shop and the insurance companies would not be able to lobby for special regulations that benefit them and shaft us. The entire plan can be put on 10 pages or less, so everyone can read and understand it. It is the one plan the government did right. Insurance companies must not be allowed to create their own plans or the Obamacare replacement will not work. To summarize: The government creates plans with various coverage - for example - Plan A might offer maternity and Plan B might not. I would pick plan B because I am beyond child bearing age. The key is to have all insurance companies across the country cover the same exact plans, so they have to bid against each other.  Also, to greatly reduce the cost of medical care, all hospitals should build an urgent care center staffed with nurse practitioners next to their emergency rooms. A person with a true emergency will pass through the urgent care into the emergency room. Those without real emergencies will see "nurse practitioners" in the urgent care facility massively reducing the cost.

Petition to Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions, Mike Kelly

Protect the Citizenship of DREAMers (DACA recipients)

As a public school teacher, I was grateful for the DREAM Act because some of my top students were relieved of the stress and anxiety of illegal status and given a pathway to citizenship and a future. Most had to scrape together time and money to work with lawyers and consultants to complete the process. They had to go through interviews and screening and void the agreement if they are convicted of a serious crime. When I heard the Act was likely to be reversed, I was immediately worried about the 20 or so students from my classroom over the years that made all these strides to progress their lives without stress and anxiety. But there are nearly 800,000 of them in total. I want all of them to know that many Americans know their plight and support their right to remain citizens whether the DREAM Act is reversed or not.  DACA will undoubtedly be signed out of law by the current administration; however, those that already completed the process are in limbo. Nearly 800,000 children who pursued citizenship as a 16 year old or younger, advocating for themselves, raising the money and finding the time and transportation by themselves, because America offered them a promise. A promise to become a citizen and contribute legally to America's worth and beauty. These kids went on to take out loans and pursue college degrees, buy homes, buy cars, etc. Nearly 800,000 law abiding citizens. Nearly 800,000 positively contributing members of society, now are afraid. Why would we turn our backs on them? Don't be naïve; this is fair, not partisan. Simply sign the petition to protect the nearly 800,000 DREAMers that have completed the process.  Nearly 800,000 kids educated in American Public Schools funded with American tax dollars are now fine, upstanding young men and women who were able to progress their American lives forward without the stress and anxiety of illegally being here.   I urge you to protect the agreement made with these fine men and women of America who currently contribute to our economy and safety; they deserve our support and America benefits from their continued citizenship.  Please protect the DREAMers!
