Video of the Week: Congressman Marsha Blackburn at Doctors & Patients Town Hall

This is a must see video of Congressman Marsha Blackburn’s Presentation at the Doctors and Patients Town Hall Meeting in Nashville Aug 6th. We have been on the subject of how healthcare regulation hurts patients for the past couple of weeks, and Congressman Marsha Blackburn says ObamaCare will introduce 3,423 new ones! That’s not including 569 billion dollars of new taxes starting next year and the 600 billion dollars they have taken from the Medicare trust funds to lay the foundation for ObamaCare! In this video, of the Nashville Doctors and Patients Town Hall meeting, Congressman Blackburn discusses how TenCare was supposed to be testing out HillaryCare and what the result was of trying to use anticipated savings from Medicaid to find and expand coverage to children and the uninsured. She also addresses how ObamaCare tries to address some of the pitfalls of TenCare, how effective the solutions are, and the legislation she is pushing through to improve healthcare. 

One response

Federal Government Health care is not a right and is not constitutional, the Republican Congress in 2003 that decided to subsidize private health insurers under Medicaid Advantage, which costs taxpayers an average of 13 percent more per beneficiary than the government-run program. The same Republican Congress passed the prescription drug benefit add-on to Medicare that President George W. Bush so enthusiastically championed, creating the largest expansion of the welfare state since LBJ’s “Great Society.”

And now the Republicans have announced from the Republican National Committee, a brand new “Health Care Bill of Rights for Seniors.”

Will it ever end.

Prescription Drug Benefit.
The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-ofpocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).
