Nullify Obamacare

Obamacare Kill Bill: States Consider the Health Care Freedom Act

This past August, a conservative non-profit group, the American Legislative Exchange Council, or Alec, approved and published a model bill which would remove the IRS’ ability to penalize businesses for not offering health insurance in states which have not set up their own health exchanges.

If enacted at the state level, the Health Care Freedom Act (HCFA), as Alec calls it, would revoke the license any of health insurance provider that accepts federal subsidies through one of Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges. Supporters of the model bill argue that it neither conflicts with federal law, nullifies federal law, nor is trumped by federal law.

How do Local molehills Become National Moutains? Health Care

This article is a Part 2 of “How Local Mole Hills Become National Mountains” series.  (Part 1 HERE)

A “molehill” is a problem.  It’s not a fun problem or an easy problem to handle, but it is a smaller problem than say 1 million molehills stacked on top of each other. In other words, a mountain.

Health care is a molehill.

It is a personal, family, market (global) and possibly a local community issue, specifically with regard to common health problems in a local community.  This health care molehill simply requires a patient with a health need, and groups of health professionals and wellness industry leaders with capabilities to meet the need.  Health Care, aka Sick care, is NOT a national mountain requiring national earth movers supplied by Congress and regulatory agencies.

Local, decentralized solutions serve individuals better.

I travel about half of my work life, and without fail, I see people during my travels.  I mean, they are everywhere!  On the road going to the airport, waiting in line at the airport coffee stand, sitting next to me on the flight, flying the plane, walking around my arrival city, sitting at the hotel. I could go on and on.  And it’s really great to see people, because for the most part, I enjoy them. Occasionally, the feeling is even mutual.  People come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, to be sure, but there are some common physical and physiological themes I’ve become keenly aware of. One hundred percent of them have a head, presumably with a functioning brain controlling a lot of automatic functions in their body, including a pumping heart, muscle movements, digestion, elimination and so forth.
